Optimism. As in, “If I nurture this clearly rotten robin’s egg long enough, it will hatch into a baby bird that I can keep as a pet.”
Take a break. It’s important to stop and smell the flowers every once in awhile.
Relax. There is nothing wrong with spending the day in your PJs if you feel like it.
The right attitude is important. Cooking is fun if you adjust your thinking a bit.
Smile. It makes folding laundry feel a lot less tedious.
A hug makes everything better. Baby snuggles are especially nice when you’re exhausted, look terrible, and feel worse.
