My Happy Place

Published / by caroline@myfriendcaroline.com / Leave a Comment

I have a new happy place to go to at the end of the day and it is my new rocking chair. For Christmas my husband bought me a rocking chair. I am a “Grammy” and enjoy rocking my grand-babies whenever I get a chance and I remember rocking my little ones. I am not sure what exactly makes rocking so comfortable. It is so relaxing to just sit there and rock. The rocking motion is very soothing. I don’t know if it is something in our memory bank, That feeling of being rocked when we were little. Some say for babies it represents what it felt like in the womb when “mommy” was walking around. People talk about growing old and sitting on their porch in their rocking chair. There could be so many reasons why, but to me they all don’t matter. I just love the relaxed feeling I get when I am able to end my day in my rocking chair. This is my happy place. I hope you have a happy place that makes you feel and good as I do when I am rocking in my chair.

Each New Year starts as a New Bud. How it blooms depends on you. You can water it with positive attitude, self-love, and compassion for others. On the other hand you can choke it out with self doubt, complaining and judging others. The choice is yours, not any other person’s. We can be so quick to blame others for our defeated feeling. You are the only one who can change your life. The beginning of a New Year is the perfect time to start watering your bloom. Make that choice today. Surround yourself with positive people and start positive thinking are just a couple of things you can start with. You can make this year filled with many beautiful blooms…start it now!!!
