What would make YOU happier?

Posted by   + Show Post

Do you consider yourself happy -- with every aspect of your life? If so, you're very lucky! Many of us want to make changes in our lives that we know would make us happier, but where do we begin?

Making real changes to improve your overall satisfaction with yourself and your life takes effort, and more importantly time. So we procrastinate. Am I right? This is exactly why we created the Mom Happiness Makeover: to spark the fire under our tushies to get moving on making ourselves happier!

  • Your relationship? Get happier about your relationship here.

looks-right now im pretty satisfied. in 4th month of pregnancy.havent gained any weight so far..started out over weight,170lbs(gained about 50lbs w/1st daughter) 

finances-no least no cash advances. down to 1 from 6, this time last year. got caught up in them pretty bad.

home-would love a bath tub. only have stand up shower, which is hard with a now 5 year old and baby on the way. plus would be supere nice for myself :0) i make due with what i have though. could be worse. 

relationship-more quality time. "dates" and i dont mean eating dinner in front of tv while watchings something we agree on. usually something like hgtv or this show 'drinking made easy' we discovered.

personality-time for a legit hobbie. i used to use my sewing machine alot when i was pregnant w/1st daughter. havent had time or space to do projects. would like to start crafting again.

mommying-i feel im a pretty good, well rounded,involved mom. maybe being in better physical shape would make me more fun(active)would like to do more things like play basket ball w/daughter, run around, bike rides...

world-nicer people. seems everyone is in a bad mood all the time. smile people, your breathing! i try to smile at at least one stranger a day. they usually look at me like im crazy, like 'i dont know you, why are you smiling at me?!' but i dont care.

A Mommy makeover, hmmmmm. I think that my heart could use a makeover for my oldest Grandson who is mentally retarded. My daughter has been trying to get him (13yrs old now) into Heartspring in Witchita, KS for about a year now, but the local school is fighting her. She has an attorney, and a doctor, that both agree that this is the correct placement, but when dealing with the schools there are many procedures that must be accomplished. As such he sits in an isolation room with an aid all day long without really any instruction or interaction. My son-in-law is Military and has been to Iraq 4 times, as such they don't have a lot of money and so the attorney and doctor have been wonderful to work with as they see the desperate need for this special boy.

So, my Mommy make-over would be that my daughter and her family (she has 2 other children too) would finally get her hearts desire.....a perfect environment for her severely mentally retarded son, who just needs a chance at life.  :)
