I haven’t posted much lately because I’ve been busy loving life and enjoying my family. (Fortunately nobody seems to have noticed, which is one of the things I love about blogging – it’s okay to take a break!)
I have a job outside of this account/blog, plus two amazing and very demanding little kids. And once work is over for the day, taking food photos just hasn’t been as much a priority as enjoying a warm fire, cooking dinner with the family, learning the ukulele, having a glass of wine with my hubby, and just generally being happy.
A few months ago I decided to be more positive and happy in life – not because things were going wrong, but because our country is super fucked up and the amount of anger and negativity is just unbearable. I was sick of feeling like many of the frustrating and stressful aspects of my life were not under my control. So I’ve been trying to be the best person I can be and infuse joy and positivity into the lives of others.
At work and home, with family, friends and coworkers, I’ve tried to identify big and small ways to improve my world and the world around me. And I must admit, it’s working and paying rich dividends. People around me have noticed, and it has inspired them to be more positive. Best of all, I’m a happier person at the end of each day.
I hope I’ve inspired you to get out there today and BE HAPPY & SPREAD JOY. And if you can’t be happy due to your circumstances, think about how you can make someone else in your life happy – I think it will ultimately have the same impact.
