25 Ways I Know I Have Had a Good Day | MommyWifeLife.com

Life as an adult gets overwhelming. Whether you are single, married, with kids or without, life can be draining. I have caught myself many times complaining about all of life’s responsibilities, but I want to change that. I want to commit to focus more on the positive moments of life. Even when things don’t seem the greatest, there is always something positive to reflect on.

Sometimes our day’s positive moments are small and silly, but if we make the choice to focus on those instead of failures or discourse, we can guarantee ourselves to see better days. Whatever we decide to focus on is indeed what we will see in our lives. If I decide to focus on what I don’t have and what I haven’t accomplished due to mistakes, I will never be able to move forward. However, if I focus on the ways I can obtain the things I would like to have and accomplish, then I will see those things come to fruition. 

I spend a lot of time with and around my children. As a stay-at-home and homeschooling mom, there is pretty much no way around it, which is not a bad thing. Trust me, I totally enjoy my parental duties; however there are days that most would call “bad days”. I have made a list of things most would consider small wins and moments. When experiencing “bad days” these small wins help me to see the day as a good day. Remember, we are looking for positive moments to focus on! Let me know if you can relate to any of these moments.
