Welcome!

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
