Why Choosing Happiness Is Not As Easy As You Think

Thank you Frost Bank for partnering with me on this post! As always, all opinions and review are my own. 

Good morning, friends! If you remember from THIS POST when I first began the 30 Day Optimism Challenge, it’s slowly wrapping up and I’m here to sift through my feelings about the challenge. It was an invitation to choose happiness. As I typed that, it sounds silly. Right? I mean, why would anyone shy away from choosing happiness? Here’s the honest truth for me and most people: It’s easier and more comfortable to choose worry, guilt, anxiety, frustration, sadness, and resentment. Those are easy, effortless feelings. View Post

The Best Way to Satisfy Cravings

Dallas in the middle of summer can get a little hot. That might be a bit of an understatement… it gets REALLY hot. When we moved into our home 6 summers ago it was above 100 degrees for the entire first month! If we’re not spending our time hiding from the heat indoors with the air conditioning blowing full blast, we’re outside and in the water. Pools, splash pads, backyard sprinklers…. as long as water is involved, being outside is still an option! And the kids absolutely love it! BUT with their love for water comes the many, many scary experiences we’ve had around pools with my little ones falling/jumping/being pushed in the water. View Post
