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.
  • Your personality? Get happier about your personality here.

What would make you happier with:

  • Your looks? a boob job, a nose job, lipo, a tummy tuck... ah forget, a whole new body.
  • Your finances? As soon as we aren't paying rent in so many places, I will feel much more comfortable.
  • Your home? That's in flux. We're in the process of buying and moving to a new home.
  • Your relationship? blah! nuf' said.
  • Your personality? see above. lol
  • Your "mommying"? I could do better, I need to work on my patience.
  • The world? that's a tough one, there's a lot wrong in the world. I just wish people would shut up about things that do not effect them.

Home: I'd really like to get out of my parents' house  - we need some space, please!

My finances: learn to manage money
My home: (where do I start?) siding and a new roof I guess
My relationship: a date night
My personality: I want to be more outgoing
My mommying: I need to be more consistent
The world: I want to reach out to people more instead of waiting for them to reach out to me!
