The Happiness Project

A few weeks ago I borrowed this book from the library.

I've seen the blog before so I decided I want to take a gander at it. She had some really good ideas, but I was having trouble at times staying focused on the book. A great idea I got out of the books was to explore what makes you happy! So I decided to make a Top 10 list of things that make me happy (in no particular order)...

1. Country Music
2. Cool weather
3. Good hair days
4. Fresh flowers from the grocery store!
5. Gaudy and big costume jewelry
6. Freshly clean sheets
7. Smelly goodness of candles
8. Long baths that make me look like a tomato when I get out
9. Trashy romance novels
10. Ice cold beer (I mean where you can see the ice in it)

I can come up with a ton more to put on the list, but these are my favorites at the moment!!! So what would you put on your list?!

Oh one last thing...I didn't finish the book. Only made it half way through it and decided I wanted to go back to my trashy romances (duh, that's what makes me happy)!!! But a really good piece of advice I did take away from the book was to never ask Justin what he thought about what I was wearing. He hates when I do that! Either he's going to say he loves my outfit and I think he's lying or he'll say he doesn't like it and I get mad at him! So I vow at this moment to never ask him his opinion about my choice in clothing again! (Ha! Let's see how long that will last!) Happy Tuesday y'all!!!

Disclaimer: Of course my hubby & boys make me the most happiest, but that's a given!!!

Dreaming of Falling

This morning I woke up with the worst anxiety attack I've had in a long time. The worst part was that I couldn't really do anything to calm my nerves because I had kids to get ready for school and I'm still feeling on edge right now even writing this.

So what caused this attack?! I had a horrible dream. It started off that I got into an elevator with two women who looked like they were girlfriends and of course I've never seen them  before or recognized them. Then all of a sudden the the elevator started to jerk and come to a halt. Then it started free falling. The other two women held on to each other screaming and I fell to the floor. I started to see my life flash before my eyes, the boys, Justin and all of us having a good time laughing. Then there was nothing, my mind just went blank and I remember getting mad that here it was that I was about to die and my mind was blank. No memories, no words, nothing to comfort me. Then right before the elevator crashed it came to a stop and one of the women was able to squeeze the doors open and jump out. I was next and then the other woman followed. Then my dream was over and I woke up with this  anxiety attack. UGH!!!

What on Earth does this dream mean and why did it scare the crap out of me? Why did my mind go blank, why couldn't I recall anything? Have y'all every had a dream that caused you anxiety? If y'all have any advice about the dream or what y'all do to help your anxiety help a sista out and share!!!
