This week has given me a few reasons to feel proud so I thought it would be the ideal word for this week.Daisy has been chosen to play one of the most coveted parts in the school nativity play, she’s going to be Mary. I remember feeling so envious of the girl who got to be Mary when I was at primary school although I’m not sure why as I was a total introvert and would have frozen on stage.
I’m proud not because she got the part, but because she has the confidence to play a main part, she believes in herself and let’s nothing stop her.
On Wednesday night we went to parents evening where her teachers told us how well she is doing with her reading, writing and maths but that’s not what made me proud the most. They told me that Daisy was kind, caring and confident, all the things that I believe are most important.Finally I’m proud of myself, I’ve been suffering some symptoms of stress recently and instead of pushing on with things I stopped and admitted to FrugalMrW just how bad I had been feeling. I wrote down all the reasons I’ve been feeling stressed and made a plan of how to tackle them one by one. This might not seem like that a big a deal but for someone with a huge type A personality like me it’s an achievement.
I’m linking up with Jocelyn from The Reading Residence for Word of the Week.
