This is what I did to make myself happy this week:

I find it a huge challenge to specifically do something to make myself happy.

As a wife, mother and entrepreneur someone or something always seems to trump my personal needs and I leap into action to take care of it. That’s what I signed up for. I love it but let’s be real…

(I have a large family, I use a lot of life examples.)

If I got a special type of soda as a treat and I went around filling up everyone’s cups to the brim by the time I got to my own cup, there would be nothing left.

I could A: Get Huffy and pronounce I need to drink water anyway.

Or B: Allow everyone to pour a little of theirs to fill mine too.

No only does B allow others to give and share but it also allows me to flex my gratitude muscles too.

We give so much away, it’s extremely important to take time to treat ourselves and find the things large or small that bring the color to life, the joy, possibility and makes us HAPPY!

I recharged my happy place and stole a few moments for myself.

My family can all attest that when I adhere to my morning yoga practice that I am a much happier and nicer person in the morning.

This week I made a point of hitting the mat EVERY day for at least 15 minutes before anyone got up.

Oh how I wanted to stay in my warm bed and dread getting up for another 20 minutes. I was cold and cranky.

Within minutes I’d be warmed up and inspired.

Thinking about it even makes me smile. My time. My morning routine then becomes almost joyful.

My stress decreases and the little things don’t ruffle my feathers.

When I am happy I usually have my camera in hand or pretty close to capture the moment.

I went for a short walk between the storms and took pictures just for fun. I got some great shots and ended up having a blast editing them later.

I have no real plans for the photos but I loved every second of the process.

Which gave birth to a few other ideas while I was busy having a blast creating because it makes my heart happy.

Come On Get Happy!

    I totally agree with you, everyone needs some time to themselves! People think I’m crazy for getting up at 4:30 in the morning, but it’s my time to workout, to work on my blog, drink some coffee etc, before I have to go to work and before the kids get up. It’s just ME time! Good for you for making time for yourself! A happy mama makes a happy house 🙂

  1. Love what you put out there. Hope it comes back to you many times over.

  2. Meg and Irish – I couldn’t believe it when I saw your posts last night – and that I’d been working on this particular post on the weekend for today!!! It’s absolutely apropos and I’m Happy to be able to Share it here, too! I look forward to visiting other Happy Places – ;-} Hugggzzz –

      Oh my gosh! You must have a psychic connection… the persevere post was perfect. 🙂 Thanks for linking and sharing it! <3

  3. I’m on a diet but I bought myself a burger meal once this week. Yes, only once so that I won’t feel like I’m sacrificing too much. And I reconnected with a long lost friend. These count as something for myself right? 🙂

      Totally counts. 🙂 I do that too but my treat is street tacos. 😉
