Notes on a Sunday

Notes on a Sunday - WhatWouldGwynethDo

I think Sunday morning is one of my favorite moments in the week. There is the promise of a day filled with (hopefully) nothing important to do, you don’t yet have the anxious feeling of the Sunday night “oh no, tomorrow is Monday blues” and we like to let all the rules relax a little – homemade muffins? Yes, please. More TV for the kids? Why not? Laundry to sort? Later.

I am skipping my menu planning this week because the days ahead are a little too irregular, I just need to go with the flow. My in-laws are coming into town, Little D is on Spring break and I am going up to LA two days in a row, so planning anything at all seems counter productive.

So instead of taking to my cookbooks for my weekly Sunday morning ritual, I took to Pinterest instead and came across the quote above and wanted to share. There are a few truths I have come across in life that really impact me, and this is definitely one of them. I usually go with the standard “when one door closes, another one opens,” but this is a more eloquent approach. However you choose to say it, I think it’s so true and have seen it come to life in matters big and small.

My other favorites?

This too shall pass. It really, truly always does.

In life, we trip not on mountains, but on molehills. So let’s recognize them as such and move on.

Everything happens for a reason. And some day, some how, that reason will show itself. It may not seem like it now, but it always does. PS – this can be relevant in both sad times and happy.

Haters gonna hate. Poetic, I know. But it’s true – some people are just never going to be happy, satisfied, appreciative or impressed. If you choose to keep them in your life – or more importantly, let them impact it – then you’re the one losing out.

Did I mention that Sunday mornings are also perfect for random musings of my little mind?

Have a lovely day ~

PS – happy Easter to those of you celebrating! We are Greek Orthodox so our Easter falls in May this year, otherwise this Sunday morning would obviously be filled with bunnies and baskets and chocolate binges 😉

    just know that you’ve inspired some hard core menu planning in our house – that I invariably end up editing b/c I’ve made too much. so flexible is good, especially when you have guests! also, cake. 🙂

    This too shall pass is my favorite! It’s fast becoming my mantra ha!

    I agree with DC Celine! Menu planning is a great idea! Saves me from wandering the aisles of the supermarkt like a indecisive zombie..
