My Happiness Vision (for myself and for my blog)

My Happiness Vision from thishappymom.comMy happiness vision is pretty straight forward.  It’s a word picture of what happiness means to me, it’s a mission statement for my life, and it’s at the core of what I blog about.

My blog is about feeding women (mostly moms) body, soul, and spirit.  That’s why I mix recipes (body) with humor, stress reducers and insights (soul) and scripture (spirit).  Being happy is about being a well-balanced person, not just about your mood.

Until I actually took the time to visualize what it meant for me to be happy, I found if very difficult to take steps to intentionally BE happier.  I was a prisoner to the “momma ain’t happy” moments because I didn’t have a clue how to get out of them.

Once I could articulate clearly what happiness looked like in my life, I began to be able to define steps I could take each day, regardless of my mood or circumstances.  Being able to see a picture of me as a happy mom was a major step to becoming this happy mom.  Because I can see it, I can begin to take steps to live it.  

For me,

happiness vision from thishappymom.comHappiness is about finding joy and beauty in everyday moments, about taking the time to enjoy playing with my kids, about making time to make my husband laugh and to appreciate the man he is.

Happiness is breathing out, being still, and finding delight in the smallest of things.

Happiness comes from  finding purpose and passion in my life and pursing it day by day, even if the its just for a moment.

Happiness is about knowing who I am, and who I am not, and embracing the woman God called me to be.

Happiness is about being real and authentic, especially when its scary to do so.

Happiness requires active effort.  It’s about identifying the things that get in the way of happiness and then doing something to change it (or accept it, or fix it, or find peace with it).

Happiness is about connections to others, about community and friendship.

Happiness is about knowing I am doing my best, even if it isn’t perfect.

But most of all, happiness is an extension of the Joy, Peace, and Love in my heart that comes from God.

In all that you do, I wish you happiness in your life – as a wife, as a mother, as a friend, as a daughter, as a woman, and as a child of God.

Go on, go do something that makes you happy.

I have a passion for encouraging weary worn out mothers to find joy in everyday motherhood and peace in unlikely places. I have two elementary school boys, one nerdy husband, and two cats. I have a strange fascination for bad puns, the color pink, socks, and books. I worry about running out of toilet paper, wine, and chocolate.. I serve an amazing God. I live an ordinary life filled with wonder.
