And so, I've decided to write down those things that make me truly happy so that I can remember them and figure out how to keep them in my life...some will be easier then others, but let's start here. I may be a mom of 4 and a wife, but that doesn't mean I can't take of myself too, right?? Something I think mom's tend to forget about.
So here goes...a list of what makes me happy:
1. Dancing - I grew up dancing and absolutely loved it. Everywhere I went in my life, I always found a way or a class. Went away to college and took a tap class...lived alone and took another tap class...took several swing classes with friends (this would be really fun to do again)...danced in a Polish Festival and learned a great new dance (started this more than 10 years ago)... I'm not a brilliant dancer but I don't suck either...I just really enjoy it!!
I am so glad that my children share my joy in dancing!!
2. A clean house - ha ha ha Now, this one is a touch and go...if only I didn't have to do the cleaning myself (lol) And so, I think I really need to come up with a 'system' for getting things done. You know, a schedule of when to do it all and try to do a little bit each day. I guess after 10 years of marriage and four kids later I am starting to realize that making 'goals' is still an important part of life. Guess my 'real' job came in handy after all...ha ha
4. Baking - actually, I think I like making other people happy through my baking. I do love to make something and see how it comes out and the reaction people have to it... I really don't like the cleaning up bit, but I guess that comes with the territory. I've thought a lot about finding a huge Baking book of some kind and just going through it recipe by recipe... you know like the Julia Childs experiment?? Only this would only be desserts and I think I would only be able to do 1/week and not 1/day. Anyone know of a good baking book to look into???
What makes you truly happy in life??? Would love to hear about it!!
