I have been feeling extremely happy lately – even some of my friends have commented that I seem different.
They say I seem happier and have a little sass about me.
I know some people had this epiphany a long time ago and I’m not 100% sure where mine came from or that it all came from one place…but bear with me while I try to explain.
I’m the type of person who needs to sit with her emotions for a while….doesn’t matter if they’re happy or sad. If I’m upset then I definitely need time to feel the sadness/anger, then I can work through it and move on.
Over the last month I could feel the fog lifting – which felt great but it wasn’t just the warm weather… I’ve made a conscious decision to go from simply existing and going through the motions every 24hrs to actually living my life. I am going after what I want. I’ve set goals with serious determination to achieve them. I feel more confident and self-aware.
Up until recently I let my fear of failure hold me back from so many things I wanted to do. Just in the last few weeks I keep thinking to myself “what’s the worst that could happen?”
So what if I try something new and I fail…what if I keep trying the same thing in a different way and fail? I’ll learn from my mistakes along the way and I won’t have any regrets.
My kids have noticed the difference as well. Naturally, they’re happier when I am.
I love music…and this is my new theme song. It just makes you wanna dance!
The kids have had it on repeat this morning.
What if I keep waking up every day and choose to find joy when it might be the hardest thing to do?
What if I take the path that seems the scariest and it ends up being the best thing to happen to us?
I love this new me. It feels good deep down in my soul. Who wouldn’t choose that?
