I am still reading/flicking through this book = Life is a verb It is essentially about in 37 days taking action to wake up, be mindful and live intentionally. I am not following it properly though. Day One should definitely be about being obedient!
One idea from the book, that I really like, is that we always having something to celebrate - which we really do no matter how tricky life is.
One instruction is to light a birthday candle every day for 37 days. We often light a large candle at meals times but it was easy to raid our box of birthday candles and choose a teeny weeny one for a change.
Well, actually we have quite a good box of little candles so it was quite tricky choosing just one candle! Then we decided we should have a sparkler too!
Cakes are not required as part of the idea but definitely improve it.
So it was easy to decide on something to celebrate. It was, however, tricky limiting it down to the best ones. Today we decided we could/should celebrate Skyla going up one reading group and having choosing time at school.
Secondly, we thought we should celebrate having our two little kittens. We got these lovely poppets in November and we are still very much in love with them. Our tiny weeny little kittens are only 7 months old and they are enormous!
