On what makes you thrive

This Fall, I joined MOPS, which technically stands for Mothers Of Preschoolers. I clearly don't have a preschooler, but what I do have is the desire to connect with other moms in my area who are raising their kiddos too. Although we've only had a few meetings so far, I really love the conversations we have. I also really love that we essentially get to eat dessert and drink tons of coffee and call it breakfast, but that's another blog entirely. 

A few meetings ago, we had a discussion about thriving. What makes you thrive? Not just simply survive, but what really makes you thrive in your own life? Even now, I think I'm still pondering my answer because it's such a hard question. 

Where lies your passion? What makes you excited to get out of bed in the morning? What's the first thing you want to talk about when you see people? Where is your happy place? What helps you to flourish?

My definition has changed so much in the past year. I used to say teaching, because I gathered so much energy from being in the classroom and working with my students. And before teaching, I would have said taking classes. I have always loved being a student and learning new things regardless of my age. 

Today, if I had to answer that question, there would be so many answers. Family. Motherhood. Friends. KEEP Collective. Faith. Exercising. Food. Coffee. Perfect days. Rest-filled nights. I feel like I could use more of all of these things in my life. 

I'm challenging myself to really answer this question because I want to continue focusing on the good in life - the things that make me thrive - the things that put me in my happy place. 

I'd love to hear what makes you thrive!
