I had to deal with a troll yesterday & this morning and remembered this quote. decided to block the troll and not give her another thought. not that i cared before but i didn’t need any reminders that this person was poking at me intentionally. so thought i’d share this to encourage everyone to not give a fig about other people’s opinions of you. live your best life free from worry about what people think of you ❤️
a quote — a good daily reminder — from our new york times bestselling book, “getting back to happy: change your thoughts, change your reality, and turn your trials into triumphs”. available at barnes & noble, amazon, etc. 😊👍
this is just one of many happy places for mini man, that boy loves the park but put him on a swing and he’s in fits of hysterics, wide eyed, literally shouting out with uncontrollable excitement to the poor unsuspecting children sat on the swing next to him 🤷♀️ kids eh!
we all have many happy places i’m sure but for me one in particular springs to mind, the dance floor! a long time ago, feels almost like another lifetime now i spent most nights swaying my hips and swishing my hair to the rhythmic beats of salsa. sweaty skin and breathless with exhaustion. it was intoxicatingly addictive. i miss it. a lot. it was my happy place, the one place where i felt i could be me, i could express myself freely and unapologetically. i read an article the other day about getting back to what you love, which reminded me of those nights which is why i wanted to share this with you. and i quote ‘nothing can fill the emptiness that remains in a space vacated by a passion that we have tossed aside’. so be inspired to go find your happy place 🙏🏼💕 #myhappyfeetproject
Love. expression. acceptance. #shambhalamusicfestival

tonight, i go to bed in a very different state than the one i woke up in. i started the day feeling overwhelmed, frustrated with myself that i didn’t wake up, i didn’t do what i had planned...and that i hadn’t for 3 days!! i was really mean to myself for most of the day.
the i pulled it together. i reminded myself that i feel so much better after i work out, and by feeling better, i can be a better mom...not to mention wife. so, instead of waiting till after bed, i trusted that my little dude could handle hanging out and watch me workout. he proved me right. he was fine.
by moving and sweating and forcing myself to not listen to all of the reasons why i couldn’t i changed my mood. this changed the way our day ended. our little man is found through a tough leap, so bedtime wasn’t easy, but i was able to handle it with love instead of frustration and anger.
while i am healthy for me, it helps to have a tiny human who depends on me being happy. a friend told me today, your baby doesn’t need a perfect mom, they need a happy mom. do you agree?
