The Best Gift You Can Give Is Your Own Happiness


I think especially as moms we often think the opposite idea, "I have to sacrifice my happiness for my kids." That's so backwards! When we sacrifice our personal happiness for others, what we really end up doing is blaming them for our unhappiness. This doesn't actually help anyone and only fosters resentment. I'm not saying we don't make sacrifices, but let's only make ones for others that increase the love and joy we feel personally. Own your life and your decisions. You can't give what you don't already have. Happy, fulfilled people are the ones who help everyone around them the most to be able to feel the same way! So figure out happiness for you first, then you can go help everyone around you do it too! Sorry for the rant, I really believe this is true and often misunderstood! 😂
