- Babies smell great and they can turn a bad day into a better one!
Five years ago, when I was going through a rough time and needed a pick me up, I would visit my then baby nephew, Johnny. He would smell delicious and would be happy to be held, kissed and snuggled. I would always leave my sister’s house a happier person.
- Travel whenever you can
We get hung up in our day to day lives and sometimes forget there is a big world out there, go places, see new things, meet new people and learn about new cultures. It truly broadens your perspective.
- My husband is my one true love
I was lucky enough to find him at a young age. I’ll tell you that story sometime.
- Crying to a police officer doesn’t always get you out of a ticket (don’t ask)
It used to work like a charm when I was younger, go figure.
- Practice gratitude daily
I mean it. What a difference it makes when you can say out loud a few things you are grateful for. It’s an instant perk. Try it.
- My world lights up when my kids walk in the room
I’m always so amazed that I gave birth to two great kids. Besides being smart and good looking, they are compassionate, giving, and loving human beings with great big hearts. They believe in loyalty, honesty and kissing their parents.
- Make time to do nothing
Yes, you read that right, I’ve only been doing that in recent years. It may mean meditating or just chilling. Life is not about being busy all the time and running around. Sometimes you can hear more in quiet and silence then you ever could while racing around.
- Keep the past in the past
If there was a reward for hitting the rewind button on the past, it would go to me. I’ll say this though It solves nothing. Whoever said you can’t go forward while looking back was right. Don’t look back.
- Surround yourself with positivity
Positive thoughts and positive people make an enormous difference, I found this out myself when I chose to distance myself from the Debbie downers and negative Normans.
- Make the time to pray
You don’t have to be in church to pray. Pray wherever and whenever you want too. I have prayed in the most predictable places (airplanes) and the most unpredictable places (traffic jams). When the feeling hits go for it, God is always listening.
