Mother’s Day is a holiday where we celebrate the women we came from; who loved, raised, and taught us from the ground up. Whether you have a strong relationship with your biological mother or not, most of us have a woman, or women, that we look up to and celebrate today.
Happy Mother’s Day to all of you wonderful, strong, beautiful, exhausted women who do your absolute best to raise your babies, even after they’re old enough to do for themselves. Today is for, and about you!
Everyone experiences moments of happiness, whether it comes from someone you love, something that you enjoy, or something else. Happiness is beautiful on everyone, and we should all seek out positive ways to feel immensely happy.
As with any emotion, happiness is temporary — it comes and goes. It is a remarkable feeling, and can do wonderful things for our physical and mental health. When you experience extreme low’s like I do, it feels even more surreal when you feel pure joy. I’m going to share with you 5 things that make me happy, even though there are many, many more.
The world feels limitless, beautiful, and full of adventure, but it is also a very scary, disappointing place to be, at times. We all wish we could change some things to make it a better, safer place to live, so here’s my list of the top 10 things that I wish I could rid the world of, in no particular order.
What does family mean to you? To me, family is literally everything. Not just the family that I was born into, but the family that I chose over the years. They are the ones that I know I can always count on, through the good and bad; who loves and accepts me; supports, encourages, and believes in me; and more.
I’m not going to go into detail about every single member of my family because we could be here all day, but I want you to get to know my immediate family. They’re pretty incredible.
Although there is so much that I’d like to say to you, first and foremost, I want to make sure that you know that you are loved, more than you can imagine. Being 16 can be conflicting and overwhelming at times, so I know how easy it is to feel alone. However, whether or not you feel as though you can depend on those you consider your friends, you will always have a loving, supportive family by your side.
