Since Gabriella was born all my stress & depression seemed to go out the door. I no longer found myself anxious for another baby or stressed because of money or sad about family & friends who put no effort towards being apart of our lives like they once were. My expectation level went down & I have found contentment. I stopped caring so much about everything & I started being so thankful for what is.
It wasn't just having Birdie that changed my outlook but having my completed family. I think it was a lot of things that changed this we were able to have a sibling for Shiloh, a second child to love & adore, a husband who stress with work was subsiding & money matter's seem to becoming to an end that at one point seemed never ending. I looked at all I do have & the family & friends who do put in effort & I started to be thankful for them. I have slowing made every day changes to improve happiness all around & I couldn't feel better about my choicesStephen & I just celebrating 3 years of marriage on May 10th & I feel so lucky to have meet & married the most amazing husband, father & best friend. I remember as a child wanting so badly to find love, to get married & have babies & now I look at my life & I can say my dreams have come true. I never wanting anything more then to have what I do at this exact moment. I love my life, my husband my girls & all we have been blessed with. I think finding someone to be your life long partner who is not just a husband but your best friend is the most important aspect of any marriage. I truly am a blessed individual & thank the man above for all he has shown me & given me.
The other day while at the Magic Kingdom I looked at Shiloh laughing & her excited eyes, Birdie's smile & happy scream & Stephen watching both of them with so much love in his eyes & I said to my self.. "I am so blessed". I know vacationing for most is not something that comes easy let alone to have the ability to take their children to theme parks. Most can't afford to even take them a few hours away for a mini vacation & that is what I tell myself when we are able to do these things "Embrace this moment! Savor every second because most will never have this experience but in their dreams".
I love my life & I feel so fortunate. I am done with any negative that once tried to creep its way into my happy bubble & I am going to live each day being as thankful as I can & to make sure I don't take a second of it for granted. I just thought I would share in happy thoughts that are streaming through my head :)
