It's Monday and I'm feeling like we could all use some Happy Thoughts.
So, I made some up over the weekend, and they are available here for free download.
Hooray for Free Happy Thoughts! Whoo Hoo!
I spilled water on the happy home card, and I didn't realizes until I scanned them in that they're a bit lopsided. But I wanted to share them anyway. If I wait till I have something perfect, we could all be expired.
I hope you'll use these however you like~
They're to remind you of the awesome possibilities you've got going on.
Or, you can put the cards face down in a basket and draw one out when you want or need some positive affirmations.
You can staple them together into a happy little book of joy.
Or, you can read them aloud with a partner and laugh~ whatever floats your boat.
One of my favorite parts of teaching Empowered Birthing Classes is a little thing we do at the end of each session. After we've relaxed, checked in with our bodies and been taken care of with massage and all that good stuff, I pass out Happy Thought Cards and we go around the circle reading them aloud.
At first some people (usually the dads) seem to wonder what kind of woo-woo out there nonsense I'm making them do now, but they're all smiling by the end, and I'm pretty sure they're feeling a bit more ready to take on labor, birth and parenting.
These are just general happy thoughts for life, but I'm planning some more that are specific to birth, parenting and homeschooling soon.
Let me know what you think~ and what helps you feel happy. Enjoy~
