The moment I began living for myself and not depending on external people or forces to bring me joy, I discovered true happiness.
I wake up and go to sleep thankful for all of life’s simple pleasures.
Having a positive outlook on life may sound trite, but it truly is amazing for your spirit.
When we face obstacles, negative people, or undesirable circumstances we also face the choice of how to cope with it.
I don’t let my thoughts and circumstances control me, I am in control of my life and emotions.
Because of these small changes I feel I’m a much better mom to my kids. They get the best of me because they deserve nothing less.
Sometimes I sit and revel in thought of all the things that make me smile, here’s what I’ve come up with:
-laughing so hard your side hurts.
-knowing that somebody misses you.
-making homemade cookies.
-having someone play with your hair.
-hearing from an old friend.
-eating a hearty meal then taking a nap.
-a full tank of gas.
-wearing something lacey under my tshirt & sweats.
-a long hot shower.
-finding a good sale.
-hot chocolate with whipped cream.
-knee high boots.
-getting something in the mail.
-laughing for no reason with your kids.
-seeing a hot guy walk shirtless down the street.
-a good book.
-no line at the grocery store.
-finding a parking place up front.
-fresh squeezed lemonade.
-the perfect handbag.
-a good hair day.
-eye contact with someone sexy.
-waking up and realizing you have 2 hours to lay in bed til you have to get up.
-hearing your favorite song on the radio.
-falling in love.
-a keyboard that lights up in the dark.
-knowing you’ve done the right thing.
You can spend a lifetime chasing things you think will make you happy, but sometimes it’s right in front of you.
No matter what comes at you in life, find joy in simple things. Don’t let negative situations or people become you. Attitudes are contagious, spread joy!
