Daily Disciplines: Day Three Hundred Thirty One

Today’s holiday brought up some good questions for Adam and I: What are our traditions? Do we want to change how we do things? Should we even bother being traditional? This thanksgiving was so so so different than anything we’ve done before that I’m still not sure how I feel about it. Actually, I kinda think I love it. Sleeping in till I wanted to get up, breakfast in bed, watching Netflix with my spouse, and then cooking what we wanted to eat… I could relive this day again…minus Adam having to be at work at 5pm.

(Shout out to my Aunt for the beautiful plant!)


Daily Disciplines: Day Three Hundred Thirty

Being myself is at times seen as ‘daring’ or ‘bold’. I often forget how refreshing or helpful it is for people to see that in the world. I don’t want to just wear bright colors, being colorful is about being bold and exciting and daring and, most importantly, being myself. Even though being colorful was something I worked on last year I haven’t had a check up in awhile…

Daily Disciplines: Day Three Hundred Twenty Six

If I was the crying type, I’d have cried all day. I have not felt this loved and celebrated in a long time. So many people came out, people I never even thought would show up, to show support for us. I’m overwhelmed at how great of a day I really had… There are people that love you all around, you just need to pay attention.

I’m realizing that what I feel like I can do and what I can actually do are not always the same. When I think of who I am, I don’t think 4’9″ 93lbs little human. I imagine myself to be like 5’7″ 135lbs tough human… Okay, maybe not exactly that, but I generally imagine myself to be taller and more able to lift heavy things… In a nut shell I’m learning how to take care of external Caitlin even when internal Caitlin doesn’t think she needs the attention. Living within my means in a different way I guess.

Adam and I made the horrifying trips up to the attic carrying boxes. I’m not sure how I went up a ladder holding a giant box without my hands becoming soaking wet with sweat, but it happened. Making some real headway in the organizing boxes department!

Getting that house stuff together. I’m really excited about our clear totes, they’re gonna make our attic crazy organized!
