This past weekend was a really good one. It was simple and that’s where its beauty lies. My family and I had a little lunch date and spent time at a local park running, climbing and racing. It’s the kind of day I want to have all the time. It’s the simplest things that put me in my happy place. Once in my happy place, I’d like to stay there. I can’t be mama on a mission if I’m not doing certain things to keep mama going. So, I thought why not write down the things that will help me keep my happy.
1 – Facing my fears
Starting off the year, I decided to focus on doing bold things. I’m more of a reserved type of girl, so this is a big deal for me. In taking small, but bold steps, it’s easier to get closer and closer to whatever goals lay ahead. Doing small scary things make the big things far less scary
2 – Choosing Quality over Quantity
While this could apply to so many areas of life, it REALLY applies to friendships. Choosing to have a few REAL friends instead of a slew of fair-weather friends is the way to go.
3 – Doing a cleanse
I have been wanting to do a physical detox for a while. It’s on my list and I’m looking forward to it. Of course a detox doesn’t have to stop with the yucky stuff in your body it could also mean getting rid of the yucky things in your life. That could be any relationship that is bringing you down instead of lifting you up.
4 – Embracing the uniqueness
Accepting your uniqueness is one of the first steps to really loving you. There’s no point in being a carbon copy of someone else. The world would be a boring place if no one had the courage to just be themselves and be good with that. You are the only you this world gets. Don’t cheat the world or yourself out of your awesomeness! (tweet this)
5 – Trusting the gut
The older I get, the less I second guess myself. I think it has something to do with being a mom as well. I can’t be too wishy washy. I have two little people depending on me to make good decisions. That knowledge has made me more sure of myself.
These five things are sure fire ways to keep happiness in check. We all know, if mama’s happy, everybody’s happy!
What’s making you happy these days?
