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 looks? Get happier about your looks here.
  • Your finances? Get happier about your finances here.
  • Your home? Get happier about your home here.
  • Your relationship? Get happier about your relationship here.
  • Your personality? Get happier about your personality here.
  • Your "mommying"? Get happier about your "mommying" here.
  • The world? Get happier about the world here.

LOOKS= Id like to look younger since I am now unemployed and divorced I need to support myself. I took some online college classes now I need to find the job. Id be much more confident if I looked younger and perkier.

FINANCES=My finances will look up when I land a job. Im dicorced and forced to care for everything alone now.

HOME= will be happy about home if I dont lose it. I need a job in 30 days and I know I can save my home

RELATIONSHIP= none right now. Need to concentrate on me and my situation. Im a little bitter right now

PERSONALITY=I am outgoing and willing to help anyone to a fault. I put everyone before myself, especially  my kids

MOMMYING=I think I could do better. I am instilling the values and once we are not on such skaky grounds we will be a happy unit once again

WORLD=I get so depressed watching the news. The president and the gov upset me the way they care of politics as usual. The green thing upsets me that not enough people care..I could go on and on and on/.......

In September of 2010, I was 1 month along with our second child, when my husband lost his great job and we had to rely on state help and unemployment. Not, that we wanted to, but at the time it was what we had to do to survive. My husband is still out of work, has been doing little jobs here and there just for whatever money we can get. Our daughters get everything they need. But, we've had to move in with family because we are no longer able to afford paying bills, or rent at that. My husband and I do not care about anything else other than making sure our daughters are well taken care of. We would like to be able to afford to buy them summer clothes and not have to keep asking our family for money.
