Your Single Best Day
Do you ever fall into the trap of thinking that everything has to be perfect in order to be good, or dare I say, the BEST?
I used to do that and be “that” person.
If everything wasn’t right, if the house wasn’t perfectly clean, if everything wasn’t just so, if I wasn’t having a good hair day (shallow, right?), then, there was no way that particular day could be The Best, let alone my Single Best Day.
But, oh, yes, in this case, I love buts, when I changed my attitude, everything else seemed to fall into place and now, almost every day is a Single Best Day.
Getting that mindset and seeing those results isn’t hard, you just need to determine, yes, determine much like a pit bull, you have to grab on to that thought, that today will be your Single Best Day, and you can’t let go.
I will probably go into this in more depth in another blog post but for now, I’ll share a little story that will show you how I turned a regular, perhaps somewhat sad day, into a Single Best Day.
Turn That Frown Upside Down
I have three sons and they are getting older. My “baby” is 14 now. I live and breathe being a mom. I’ve been a single mom, I’ve worked 3 jobs (sometimes more) at a time, and the hardest part of that was not being with my kids as often as I wanted to be.
My guys are doing more and more on their own these days and that has been leaving me in a place of ????? sort of a “what about me????” mindset BUT, I know it’s important, even vital, that they do that…that they stretch their wings and that someday *GASP* they will leave.
For now, every chance I get, I spend time with them.
My middle son is still away for the summer but at least he’s only a few hundred miles away right now as opposed to thousands of miles away like he was a few weeks ago…but he’s still gone and my youngest son is at camp (the first of two this year).
So, back to turning that frown upside down…..I knew I needed to do something happy before my youngest son was gone for a few days as well so I planned a mini-celebration for my husband, my oldest and youngest sons, and me.
It did NOT need to be anything fancy, but it would be special.
I started with simple fruit and veggie tray using what I already had on hand and some crackers,
and then I added Kaukauna® Singles in Sharp Cheddar and Port Wine.
The Kaukauna® Singles were the special addition to the celebration.
It’s the same delicious cheese that you’re probably familiar with in the form of the larger, Kaukauna® ball but each box has four (4) 2oz single serving cups for snacking anytime and anywhere you want to go. They’re also more spreadable than existing Kaukauna® products but with the same great taste and each time you peel open a Kaukauna® Single, spread its fresh taste on a cracker, or dip a stick of celery to create an indulgent treat, you rekindle that same special-occasion feeling your family and friends enjoy when they see that familiar Kaukauna® ball.
There’s no need to wait for a holiday in order to celebrate. For our special impromptu celebration we sat at the dining room table….and just talked, and laughed, and ate!
Kaukauna® has been creating delicious spreadable cheese for over 100 years, a Wisconsin Tradition since 1918. I love companies with a solid history because that makes me think of my own family.
I’m going to be keeping Kaukauna® Singles handy for more Single Best Day celebrations including trips to the park, long summer drives, or just some me time.
