People say there is more to life than happiness, but happiness is all I want, and it’s what I strive for every day. This blog is my road map to joy and happiness, I’m so glad you’ll be joining me!
Hi! I’m Ani, a coffee guzzling, wannabe overachiever, prone to rapid mood swings, bouts of depression followed by productive stretches of hypo-mania. Sounds fun, right? I’m a writer, full time safety professional, and a mother who is in a constant balancing act, trying desperately to get it all right.
Life with two kids, two dogs, and a stay-at-home husband can be stressful, heck it can be downright exhausting, but it also provides a house full of love. I strongly believe that when we focus on the love and beauty around us, we have a shot at keeping our sanity! It’s not always easy, and sometimes it’s so hard it’s almost impossible, but it is doable.
I’ll admit, I am not always the most positive person. Sometimes I want to rip my hair out or just sit in a corner binge watching Gilmore Girls. But my ideal state is one of positivity and joy. These are the life tenets that help me stay positive, and joyful:
1. ORGANIZATION IS THE KEY TO SUCCESS
2. EXERCISE AND NUTRITION WILL CHANGE YOUR LIFE – EVERY TIME
3. CREATING AND CRAFTING GIVES YOU CONTROL
4. NATURE WILL BRING YOU HOME
5. THERE IS NOTHING IN THE WORLD MORE IMPORTANT THAN FAMILY
