Real happiness comes from being content with your choices and proud of your choices in becoming you.
I’ve come to some crossroads in the past couple of years in finding my true self.
An awesome, amazing, beautiful friend of mine, got me a sign that says “Be Yourself”, as a present when I started this blog…
Sometimes it is so easy to get lost in the mix and forget about your voice – I’m quite famous for this – i.e. the sign reminder ;)
I’ve taken on many things, I’ve let go of many things.
But, I feel like I am closer than ever to being me.
It’s been a very long journey, but I can feel it, I can taste, I can smell it, it’s that close!
Like most of you I’m sure, I generally go through life trying to please everyone, and in turn do not please myself.
I am a people pleaser.
If you need something, I’ll be there.
If you need a favor, don’t worry, I’ll do it.
If you have just one little thing, yeah, I’ll make room for your needs, and sacrifice mine.
I’ve finally decided that I am going to devote my time to myself and my happiness. It’s all about choosing the right path for yourself, focusing on what will make you happy.
Well, this is what makes me happy
- my beautiful babies & amazing hubs
- my wonderful family
- my loving & supportive friends
- this blog – having an outlet for my creative expression
- the fantastic opportunities that this blog has brought me, and continues to bring me
- my photography (I have to admit I get very excited over 500+ pictures of chili ;)
- and my confidence in the decisions I’ve made
Okay, so I’m done being all mishy-mushy for today ;)
Needless to say, I hope you’ll stick by me, because fantastic things are happening – I promise you that!
Oh – & here’s a free printable of Miss. Lucille Ball’s words like you see them above (without my watermark).
You didn’t think I’d head out without a printable did you?!
(And, if you are enjoying my free printables, I’d love to hear, please leave me a comment below :)
