It’s been a pretty hectic week, and I’m really feeling the effects of skipping my Great List last week due to the holiday. How interesting is it that in order to feel normal, I need to express gratitude regularly? I guess its the best kind of “addiction” you can have! All week long as I struggle through my daily challenges, I find myself thinking, “Ok Bets, what’s the bright side of this situation?” I can always find one (although it doesn’t always make me feel better immediately), and when its not readily apparent, I have to remind myself that darkness cannot exist without light.For the 4th last week, I picked up a few boxes of these Fruttare frozen fruit bars for our pool party. Lo and behold Fruttare is a brand that is recognized as being synonymous with a positive outlook on life. Who knew?! I just thought I was serving my guests some delicious cold treats. I thought that since I’m lacking a bit of positivity this week, I would pair up with Fruttare to do a pre-Great list summer gratitude journal. We can always use extra positivity in our lives right? So grab yourself a Fruttare Fruit and Milk Bar (my favorite is coconut!) or a Fruttare fruit and juice bar, and lets talk about the bright side of summer! Fresh squeezed strawberry lemonade at the farmer’s market. Only available in the summertime, this is one of my favorite indulgences! Trips to the beach with the dogs. I’ve said it before and I’ll say it again, watching my dogs run and play without a care in the world makes it impossible for me not to smile. If i’m ever having a rough day, the beach always makes it better. Sunsets like this. Also, having palm trees in my front yard! Sometimes I have to pinch myself to remember that I actually LIVE here. Loved ones, cool treats (Olive loves Fruttare Strawberry and Milk bars) , and new sunglasses. There’s nothing more quintessentially “summer” than that!
So there you have it! Don’t forget that the simple things in life are often the best, so the next time you’re having a rough week, crack open a Fruttare frozen fruit bar, and take a second to seek out the bright side of your situation. Be sure to join me tomorrow for my regularly scheduled Great List. Back to back gratitude is a major bright side to my week!
