When was the last time you sat down and thought about what brings you joy? As busy moms, our minds are often so consumed with all of the things that “need” to get done, we forget to think about the moments that truly make life worth living. Everyone has something they can do that lifts them up, tickles their soul and makes them feel alive- their Mountain High Moment! Maybe your’s is listening to a special song, spending quality time with your family, or taking time for yourself to do something you love…think about it!
Defining my Mountain High Moment was a lot harder than I thought it would be. There are many things that bring me joy- spending time with family, working in the garden, attending Mom’s Night Out, date nights with the dear husband, breastfeeding, volunteering, and the list goes on. How could I possibly choose just one? And then it hit me. There is one thing that brings tears to my eyes, fills my heart with joy, and represents the true meaning of life itself. Working as a birth doula, and helping a new life enter the world as gently and peacefully as possible is definitely my Mountain High Moment!
Taking the time to dig deep, reflect and define my Mountain High Moment was really an awesome exercise in self discovery. I haven’t worked or volunteered as a birth doula in nearly two years, and yet I discovered it’s what brings me my Mountain High Moment! That just goes to show how we can get so busy we completely lose sight of the things we are passionate about, and the things that bring so much joy into our lives. Now that I realize how much joy I’ve been missing out on, I’m definitely going to find time to volunteer at the birth center at least a couple times a year!
One thing I’ve always admired about Mountain High Yoghurt is their desire to help people live well. Eating yogurt filled with live active cultures, and no artificial ingredients or growth hormones can certainly contribute to your physical well-being; however Mountain High Yoghurt knows mental wellness is equally important too. Discovering your Mountain High Moment is a great way to nurture your emotional well-being, and make a conscious effort to focus on the sources of joy you may not have experienced for quite some time.
So now it’s your turn! I know you’re busy, and sure it sounds kinda cheesy, but I challenge you to take a few minutes to sit down and define your Mountain High Moment right now. What lifts you up and makes you feel good? Maybe you do it every day, or maybe you haven’t done it in years- it can be anything!
Once you define your Mountain High Moment, please take a moment to leave a comment and share!
Disclosure: I participated in a campaign on behalf of Mom Central Consulting for Mountain High Yoghurt. I received a gift card to purchase yogurt, a product kit, and a promotional item to thank me for participating. All opinions are my own.Terri
