Think Happy, Be Happy Link Party

"Happiness is letting go of what you think your life is supposed to look like and celebrating it for everything that it is." -Mandy Hale

 I'm back this week with some awesome women to start off Monday on a positive note with the Think Happy, Be Happy Link Party. This link party was created as a way to create some inspiration and happiness as we begin our week. It can be hard to find the happiness in our day to day, and I believe it truly does help to take a second to find the positive. Please take a second to visit all of my wonderful co-hosts who will be sharing this link party as well!

Recently, one of my co-workers asked me if I enjoyed being married. It totally threw me for a second because it wasn't a question I expected. She is a single mother and has been divorced for a few years and talked to me about her feelings about her marriage and her thoughts about the possibility of being married again, which prompted her to start the conversation with her question. I looked at her and couldn't help but be honest.

I love being married.

There is no doubt in my mind that Matt is the perfect partner for me and there's not a single soul on Earth I would ever want to spend my life with. He is an amazing friend, husband, and father. He does so much for our family, our kids, and for me. I don't want to turn this into a big mushy love fest for my husband, but her question really stuck with me for a long time. Our relationship isn't perfect and wouldn't work for other couples, but I couldn't help but feel so grateful for him. There are so many things I take for granted because that's our normal. I went home that day and hugged Matt for a bit longer and told him how thankful I am that he's mine forever.

When I talk to newly engaged couples, the first thing that comes from my mouth is typically "you're gonna love being married, it's so fun". It makes me sad that it isn't true for everyone, but I honestly wish everyone the best in their marriages and hope that they find their true loves. Even though her question was unexpected, I'm glad that she asked so I could think about the little everyday things I'm grateful for.
