Happiness is …

How do you fill in that blank?  I found that asking this question is very interesting when learning about others.  I asked this of a friend and she honestly replied I have no idea. When I asked what she would do on a Saturday if all the chores were done and the afternoon was free for her to do anything.  Again, she replied no idea.  Meanwhile, our other friend was bouncing out of her seat with all of her ideas of how she would spend an afternoon on her own without kids, chores, errands, etc.

I hope you aren’t just thinking about what you would do.  Making time for yourself and your choices is just as important as making time for your family, friends, and tasks.  For those less touchy-feely people, this is the act of self-care. It is not selfish! Remember Randy Pausch’s words about his learning from the airlines – put your oxygen mask on first in order to then assist others with theirs.  Hope you are doing the same!
