Happy Mommy's Focus

Those around me see my happiness and know my life is truly blessed.  Yes, it is.  With a lot of practice, I find it easy to count my blessings.  My life is full of beloved ones, abundance of time with my young children, a devoted partner, a beautiful home, a good education, and even two long-awaited kittens.  This truly is my personal Heaven on Earth.  The happiness, though, comes not in what is in my pocket, schedule, or bank account.  It comes from what is in my heart.

Some may think that I paint my face in some array that isn't felt inside.  That old fake happiness mask has been removed through determination and surrender.  What you see here is what you get.  Yes, I do my share of dancing with the ghosts of my lifetime.  I live a life of duality like everyone else.  Pain and fear are a part of my daily life.  I intentionally choose to focus instead on dancing with angels.  When I find myself judging or feeling cultural pressures, I place my focus again on dancing with angels, or whatever brings me joy in the moment.

Social media has been my big outlet for sharing how much I love my life with my beloved ones.  Life is in the details.  Find the details and love them.  In the moment.  It's simple.  It's revolutionary.  It's a game changer.  This focus on the details we love in the moment are shifting our world, helping us to evolve together.

On social media, I share my blessings a midst the duality.  When I say I am enamored with my children, you also know parenting is part of a delicate balance of self-care vs. serving others.  When I say how much I love writing, you also know it is a challenge to make the time to focus on writing.  When I say I am so appreciative of my supportive community, you know I have relationships to provide contrast.

Life is not about what we have to be thankful for.  It is about what we choose to give energy to, on what we choose to focus, to share with others, the stories we tell ourselves and others.  Find your blessings and you attract more of the same into your life.
