Word of the Week: Bright


Regular readers will know that last week was not a great week, it was a week that left me frustrated. This week however has been so much better!

When trying to decide what word best suited my week I thought about our lovely sunny weekend, about warm sunshine and pleasant walks to and from school. I thought about possible good news on the house hunting front. I thought about the fact that the wee girl has napped a couple of times, which is better than none! I thought about the fact that I took a bit of a break from the blog, limited the number of linkys I joined, and focused on doing some planning, writing and catching up. I thought about the early nights I got as a result :)

I thought about how all these things had made me feel so much more positive. How much brighter my week had been as a result.

So, my word of the week is bright. For the sunshine, for the naps, for the early nights, for the planning and organising, for the positivity and the promising outlook.

    1. Thank you x After a bit of a moan last week, I shook myself off and feel much more positive this week x

  1. So glad this week is going better for you hunny and always sorry to hear you were frustrated last week. Can empathize though. On to happier positive things and I hope next week is even better!!!

  2. Ah, pleased for you Sara! I think I should take a leaf out of your book and try and reign back on the blog front – joining in at least one linky every day really does feel like a lot of pressure – to keep up both the writing and then the reading/commenting and something’s got to give, be it the tasks themselves (which shouldn’t really be classed ‘tasks’ at all) or sleep!

    1. I just wanted to spend a bit more time writing and planning, and when you spend every spare minute commenting, that’s what falls away… earlier nights were good too!

  3. ‘Bright’ is a fab word; so much better than ‘frustrated’! I am glad this week was brighter for you. Sometimes all you need is to take a step back, relax a bit and everything feels a lot less overwhelming. We have such busy lives, it is not easy to switch off, is it? x Mel #WotW

    1. It is definitely a better word :) And, you’re right, it’s hard to switch off sometimes but so necessary x

  4. It’s amazing how a few early nights can really lift our mood (she says, while commenting on blogs at gone half-midnight… :) ) Glad you took a wee break from the blog, if its refreshed you – I love your blog, I really do!
