Let me preface the first part of this blog with some background information. I am a mom of one child. A daughter. I am very obsessed with her, proud of her, love being with her, and love her dearly. She is everything to me. One day, while in college, she declared she was going to get a tattoo. Yes, I was that mom. I didn’t want her to get one. I said things to her like, “Why?”, “No!”, “Oh hell no!”, “Grandma and Grandpa will not like that!”, and the ultimate mother phrase, “Why would you do that to your beautiful, perfect skin that I created!” I’ve always tried to be the kind of mom that always accepted her and not try to change her.

Isn’t it interesting, when we start something new, we are full of energy, we feel strong, and invincible? Then, after a while, we notice that our pace has begun to slow a little.

I was at the doctors office the other day and there was a little screen that kept popping up quotes on depression statistics. I thought of you. Any of you who might be struggling with the weight of the world right now. Then this little bit of advice popped up on the screen. It read,
Rules for happiness:
- Something to do.
- Someone to love.
- Something to hope for.
I instantly started smiling at the simplicity, wrote it down and keep looking at it deciding what my three things are.
Here is what I have so far:
Something to do: Come online and spread a little bit of healing in these squares.
Someone to love: The girl living inside of my skin. My husband. My kiddos. Whoever it is that stands before me.
Something to hope for: Our little business adventure down in Blackfoot.
So I’m curious to know, what are your three things? Comment below
