Top ten things that make me a happy mama

Hey readers,

I am feeling a bit low after new year and there is that feeling of emptiness properly from all the built up and then the comedowen of it all. Therefore, I thought I would focus on some good and positive things that make me happy as a happy mama. Here are my tpp ten things:

  1. Sleep is everything once you become a parent and it is the backbone of functioning. Getting a good night sleep is so important as a parent and to my own wellbeing. 
  2. Laughter in any shape or form I find important in my life.I know for me enjoying something with my partner such as watching a stand up comedy show is a perfect way to Chill out and feel good.
  3. Having some ‘me time’ whether thast be in the form of a bath, a bit of colouring in or even blogging all can help reduce tension and feel better within myself.  
  4. I don’t know if it is just me but as a parent the guilt is a killer particularly with comments like, ‘enjoy them when they young’. sometimes it leaves me so uptight that I don’t enjoy anything as I am so on edge. I have learnt to just go with the flow enjoy what you have got and don’t worry about the ‘what ifs’ as it is important to be just in the moment. 
  5. Sitting back and appreciating the small stuff. Sometimes I can get bogged down with comparison what with the internet etc. Keeping it simple really makes me happy just enjoying rather then feeling negative about being unrealistic.
  6. When setting goals making them realistic. I can’t always do what I want to do, which is fine. As I appreciate that I can’t have them standards makes me more accepting and happier. Changes are I have learnt that if I a relaxed I tend to get more things done anyway, sods law.
  7. Making sure I get fresh air even if it just found the block. I find it helps clears my head, gives me a break and a new scenery to enjoy.
  8. Be nice to myself, it is dame hard being a parent and sometimes I can be my own worst enemy. As I try to find perfection probably because I have disability that interferes with my parenting I judge myself too hard. But I am doing my best and that us what counts. 
  9. I am more happier in life when I stop trying to find the answers to my questions that I cannot find the answers to. E.g. how to be a perfect mummy? It’s just not going happen and accepting that has made me much more happier. 
  10. Nothing beats a hot tea and biscuits a perfect way for me to relax and be happy mummy! 
Cheers for reading X

  1. Ah, yes, perfection. It simply doesn't exist, despite people's superficial Facebook posts. My mum is always telling me how much of a patient parent I am; so much more than she was. This is particularly ironic, as I have very few memories of her losing it, and she obviously hasn't heard me screaming at both kids…often! I take comfort in the fact that my mum thinks she made mistakes, but I don't remember any (well, not many!) and I think I'm pretty normal…ish! xx

  2. So many of these ring true for me as well. I was just thinking the other day I should book a massage and get some “me time”. And the perfect mommy comment – I tried for so long and it only brought frustration so I'm with you on that – just accept it and it's made things much better. #justanotherlinky
