One Week
If I have learned nothing this year keeping a bucket list of joyful moments, have helped me see that my life is good just the way it is. Today I am sharing one week of Joy that made me a better wife, mother, and person as a whole.

  • Monday: My 6-year daughter started her first day of 1st grade, and I did not cry. The year, before when she started kindergarten, I sobbed for two months like a big mama bear. It was downright pitiful.
  • Tuesday: Made a list of groceries with the intent to cook every day until the weekend. I want to have after-school dinners prepared for my family. Also, today was the first day Rico (the hubs), and I had alone at home without the kids all summer. :) So, I gave him a few chores to help me around the house.
  • Wednesday: I made time to check up on a few friends I haven't heard from in a while. Spent three hours gossiping on the phone and it was a joyful moment to have a little-grown woman conversation. I rarely have time, but I made those phone calls (no text)

  • Thursday: Honestly, I walked for 30 minutes on today, and I did not beat myself up because I couldn't squeeze in any exercise Monday through Wednesday. I am finally taking control of the small things that make me sad such as missing a day or two of working out. I am so over my selfless petty talks. And for that, I am extremely Happy!
  • Friday: I made it to the end of the week stress-free, and that is the best joy. Picked all the girls up from school. Ate leftover roast, sweet potatoes, garlic rice, and corn. With a side of sweet Lucy (kool-aid). It was a challenge, but I prepared a hot meal every day this week.

Last, but not least I made a complete week of doing the simple things in life. I took responsibility for the way I mentally feel, and the way I consume life around me. Although this was a long week full of work and started new things. I intentionally made time to give family hugs and say prayers before starting each day off. Life is short, and we have such a small window to be joyful. Once I learned I can control things around me. 

I've become more protective of how I want to live joyfully. Since I have learned how to create my own joy, there is no stopping me because I am going to be happy with the big and the small things that happen in my life. 

In conclusion: Having a peace of mind is joy within itself. No matter what happens in life stay inspired and protect your own inner peace and joy! So, there you have it my week in five days, nothing fancy just living real life.

How has your week or day been this far? 

I Am The Captain Of My Happiness!


Until Next Time See Ya In A Bit!
