Happiness is… Micah’s freckles, Hannah’s squeeze hugs, Peter’s smile.
I’ve just started shooting a new film in Vancouver, and leading up to my departure, I had a lot of anxiety about leaving my fam. I was afraid that this was going to be the new norm for me. Time away from my family. This summer this has been my routine: Every morning, I wake up before my kids and have my coffee and do my journaling out in our backyard, and when they wake up, they come out, plop on my lap and tell me what they dreamt about and we hang out and look at the clouds and listen to the birds for a few minutes, and then head in for breakfast. It’s been so sweet. (Just keeping it real- sometimes they come out yelling and screaming at each other- it’s not always so lovely 😬😂😳)
So, while I’m away, in the chaos of being in every scene, learning tons of lines and being surrounded by amazing new relationships, I’m trying to take little moments to just close my eyes and bring to mind the things that make me happiest.
Micah’s freckles, Hannah’s squeeze hugs, Peter’s smile 😊. Instead of feeling guilty or sad about being away from my family, I’m filling my mind with the lovely things about them and allowing them to bring me joy even while I’m missing them.
If you closed your eyes for a moment today to bring to mind something that makes you happy, what would it be? Tell me!! #tagsomeonethatmakesyouhappy
