Keeping it real for Mother's Day

This post brought to you by New York Life. All opinions are 100% mine.

This video made me tear up a little because the message is so true.  No matter what may be going wrong in your life there is still good to find to be happy about.  This is something I have been thinking a lot about lately.

My name is Jessica and my life is not perfect.

Sometimes life gets hard.  Sometimes I struggle.  I cry.  I worry.  I get tired.  If I let it, my struggles can take over my life, leaving me with an overwhelming feeling of hopelessness.  But like this little girl, I need to remember to live in the positive.

I was talking on the phone to my mom this week who pointed out that just because a few aspects are hard doesn't mean everything in my life is.  I have been trying recently to notice the beauty around me and let myself be happy in it.  I love smelling the lilacs on the way to my pick up my daughter from preschool.  I love watching the rain.  I love cuddling my sleeping babies.  I love singing Frozen with my girls at the top of our lungs in the car.  I love talking walks in the sunshine.

The hard things don't go away.  They are still there but they are bearable when broken up by sweet, precious and sacred moments with the ones I love most - moments like dressing up for a mid-afternoon tea party with my tinies.

So this Mother's Day I am going to try a little harder to be The Happiest Daughter.  I am going to try harder to spend my day Celebrating Good and recognizing the beauty around me.
