Have you ever thought about this?
Like truly, thought deep to the core, about what really makes you happy?
Why am I bringing this up?
Well, for a few reasons.
Mainly, through observation of many adults, I find that we tend to get into “routines” of life and we forget to STOP and think about what truly makes us happy, and then act upon that.
For example, I love being a stay-at-home mom. I wouldn’t trade my chance to stay home with my kids for anything…however, I have learned that I still need hobbies in life.
And many of those hobbies have become a small side-income and I enjoy the business portion of my hobbies as well.
When I was a young girl I painted rocks, the tries to sell them. My mom was the only one that bought one… and yet, I was fine with that. Somehow I still felt accomplished.
I think this desire for creativity started for me as a young girl… and it’s never left.
It took me until after my 2nd child to realize that I love to “create.” Basically, any things artsy and right-brained is my favorite.
When I cut out that “creative thinking,” I feel like it cuts out on who I am as a person.
Sounds crazy, but it’s true.
SO I ask YOU, what makes you happy?
Maybe it’s a hobby, or traveling, or cooking or running or studying the scriptures…the list goes on.
But all I can say is don’t neglect those little things that bring you pure joy.
Because in those little moments of “joy,” life truly feels fulfilled.

Can’t totally relate to this post I myself loved being a stay at home mum but as my youngest has started school IV started to ask myself what does make me happy I have always been a “creative” person but seems all the stuff I did try or create a good few years ago before tik tok Instagram the usual I was called “crazy” lol like my small ideas ment nothing but seems these small ideas are the big money incomes these days so I was all ready to go before the hype but now it m sitting wondering if I am just a mum u know because that’s is what makes me happy lol xx
Being a mom is the best thing in the world right?! And I feel being a mom brings so much happiness but I eventually realizes it was good for my kids to see what my hobbies are as well. And maybe you have lots of hobbies within being a mon which is great but I say if you have a creative side with some great ideas.. go for those too:)
