It’s hard to balance between work life, social life, mommy life, me time, endless house work and rest time.. it’s hard to find an ideal balance and so easy to get frustrated and miss the beauty of the current moment.
There are many times that I felt like I was not being productive because I could not complete my to do list, sometimes I can’t get anything done honestly, or plans did not go as I planned it. I learned it the hard way but life happens when things are not planned. Learning my lesson, I decided to look at the full half of the class so made a list of things that make me happy:
I feel happy when..
I hear my little one giggle
When my husband hugs me
When I come home and my mom is over with a set dinner table
When I learn something new
When I have an intellectual conversation
When I re connect with a friend whom I haven’t seen or talked to in years
When I have a deep connection with someone new
When I eat
When I accomplish my goals
When we spend quality family time
When my husband says that I’m beautiful
When I feel cared for
When I’m recognized
When I grab a beer at a bar and eat some junk finger food
When I complete my blog
When I do something good for the environment
When I spend time in the wild; swimming hiking just talking walks even
When I pet Sammy (my 10 year old pain in the butt cat)
When I can grow my own produce in the backyard- I’m proud of gardening
What are somethings that make you happy? Don’t think too hard, just write down couple that first pops up in your head
Thanks for reading!
