Long, long walks alone
Finding the balance between motherly direction and allowing my boys freedom to do as they please
Knowing where my vegetables are grown and by whom when I pick them up from the farm
Writing a blog post
Feeling in control of my finances since following Dave Ramsey’s advice
Spending time listening to/watching nature (especially near water)
The contentment I feel after a fight with hubby that turns productive and we both feel heard
Just being around my family. The more of them around, the better.
Stand Up Paddleboarding
Giving hugs, but even better getting hugs
Sprinting the last distance with everything I have in me after a 3+ mile run
Accepting and beginning a challenge I was afraid of/thought I couldn’t accomplish (even if I don’t complete it)
Often these things that make my heart sing are messy or have moments of frustration, even anger. Underneath those basic human emotions my soul is telling me I am on the right path. I am staying true to who I am despite the challenges presented. Not allowing my emotions (or society) tell me which direction I should follow is freeing and reminds me that I am capable of anything.
What makes your heart sing?
Please accept this blog as my virtual hug to you.
