The lovely Mary-Lou of Patio Postcards blog pointed me recently in the direction of Brené Brown‘s new weekly gratitude practice, TGIF. Most of us would recognise TGIF as an acronym for Thank God It’s Friday, but in Brené’s world it stands for Trusting, Grateful, Inspired and Fun.
Trusting: that I have enough of a Summer timetable in place for the next 6 weeks.
Grateful: to the staff member from The Boy Child’s first school who called unexpectedly to explain the real reason why she was leaving her post. (We are still very much involved with the school’s grapevine.)
Inspired: by this post. I can’t ever truly see myself upping sticks for a year, but …
Fun: to make time to watch a few of my favourite Summer movies.
