Within the deep breath I took before going back to work, was a resolve that I wouldn't dread the busyness of the day-to-day. I didn't want to rush through the week, living only for the respite of the weekend, I want to be excited for each day.

It's a bumper sticker, but it's a bumper sticker that I'm wholeheartedly embracing right now. Reminding myself of the things that I have to look forward to in each normal day has been the most successful way to foster happiness and contentment in my life. That way, my life is not just defined by the milestones and big and exciting things, but the small and indispensable every day things.

One of the biggest mental shifts I made was to make mornings something that I look forward to, and that has helped enormously. Here are some of my other small gems: 

1. Good coffee
2. Snuggling Logan and seeing her smiling face. Watching her beaming at Ken whenever he looks at her.
3. Conversing with Sloane
4. Listening to good podcasts and audiobooks during the day
5. Writing and checking off my to-do list in my bullet journal
6. 5:00 PM - the end of a work day!
7. Crossfit
8. Winding down with my babies and pattering around the house in the evening 
9. A hug and kiss from Ken, regrouping with him.
10. Any sort of reading time I met get
11. My bed
