As I have grown, married, and had children I have realized that there are more important things in life than nails, fancy clothes, and high heels. Having children at a young age didn’t really give me much time in my life to really ‘enjoy’ some of the things that single, childless women my age get excited over. But I wouldn’t change any of this for the world!
I know lots of women who are my age, who are not married, and who get excited about dinner parties, getting their nails done, getting highlights done in their hair, going to the day spa, having weekly girls night out, and going on dates. While this is certainly not my life, I absolutely love my life.
For me it is the simple things in life…the new mop, a new shower gel or conditioner, new vacuum, new tires for my car, or even an extra half hour to spend with my children because someone helped me get something else done just a little early. Yes, I’m proud to admit it…these are things that make me happy. Sometimes the simple things in life are what counts. I’m not big into the roses and chocolates (although they are nice every once in a while), I don’t go for regular massages (although I could definitely use it), I’m not into the big, fancy, expensive jewelry (no need for it), and I’d rather go out for a nice dinner (not too fancy) and a walk on the beach than going out to the fanciest restaurant or even ‘clubbing’. I’m a mom and I’m proud to admit it!
Gentlemen, is the lady in your life more interested in the ‘high maintenance’ life, or the simple life? Ladies, what makes you happy?
