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.
What is a hobby? A hobby, or interest, is an activity done regularly in one’s leisure time for pleasure, meaning it’s something that you enjoy doing. Everyone’s hobbies are different, but you will also share some of the same hobbies with others. Below are a list of my hobbies:
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.
When Austin and I first met, he went through absolute hell, honestly. In the beginning stages of any relationship, trust has to be built, respect has to be given, and so on. For me, I didn’t trust anyone, not even myself.
After enduring many years of verbal and emotional abuse, on top of the constant cheating, I no longer trusted. I didn’t trust myself due to my ignorance for years, putting up with way more than anyone should ever have to. There was no logical reason that I couldn’t have left sooner, so why didn’t I? If the man that I married and shared a beautiful little boy with couldn’t love me, respect me, want me, encourage me, and do what all husbands should want to do with and for their wives, why in the world would I put myself through something like that again?
Everyone should have a bucket list of things that you’d love to do in your life, even if they seem “impossible.” You will look back on your list from time-to-time and remind yourself of things you’ve always wanted.
For me, I created my bucket list many years ago. It was meant to be added onto, but I haven’t done that. These were things I knew I wanted in my life, whether they were to actually happen for me or not.
