And Friday's have an extra little bonus because it is fun to "bare my soul" with Glamazzon and Mamarazzi. Usually I use this chance to rant and rave a bit and just lay out all of the crazy thoughts in my head at the moment. Today I am going to confess about things that make me happy-this isn't to be confused with my Ten Things to Smile About Lists-but just those random things-and so well speaking of my Ten Things list:
#1- when people link up to any memes I do. Let's be honest-after all this is a confessional-it makes me so giddy when more and more people link up, I feel sort of validated as a blogger and happy that people enjoy reading what I write.
Some may say they blog to keep a journal or to keep a record of their life-and while this is part of it-admit it, we all blog for the ego stroke, the validation. If it was just to keep a record of our life or even share with our family we would just have a private blog. We all want to feel connected and like we aren't on this crazy ride alone. Some of us need a little more validation than others-but we all want it.
Which is why sometimes I will put a picture I love on FB and when I don't feel it gets "recognized" enough, I will come post it here as I know you all will throw me some love.
So validate away-how cute is this! Ryder was determined to get that balloon from his sister. Couldn't have posed this moment if I tried.
#2 Cheese- slices, chunks, stringed, the cream variety I love it all. Whether it is all by itself, on crackers, or rolled up in a piece of meat. Mmmm I love cheese.
#3 Making little videos, taking good pictures, creating some awesome craft or project-- especially when I actually finish it, which with the craft thing is often not the case. There is something powerful and wonderful about creating something beautiful-which is why moms are so darn proud of and think their kids are always the cutest-we created them!
#4 Good Food--hmmm I already said cheese--I think I am getting hungry, after all it is breakfast time, so before this post totally becomes about food as that is all I can think about it right now, I am going to end it here and go eat breakfast.
What are some things that make you happy?
