20 Reasons Your Mom Will Always Have A Special Place In Your Heart

20 Reasons Your Mom Will Always Have A Special Place In Your Heart

When it comes to our moms, the relationship we have can be complicated by a mix of unconditional love and moments of contempt. Whatever your relationship was, she will always hold a place in your heart. She is irreplaceable in our hearts for good reasons and although you never knew what she was thinking on the inside, she always had your best interest at heart.

1. She gave you life

Your mom decided to give birth to you and with that took on the responsibility to love and support you.

2. She would hold you any time of day or night when you needed her

When you are afraid and vulnerable, your mother’s caress will make you feel safe.

3. When you were vunerable as a baby, she was your protector

Your mom spent all of your baby years keeping you safe so you were free to grow through experiences.

4. She offers you as much security as possible

Your mom’s sole job in the first years and maybe even still is to ensure you’re taken care of and safe.

5. She is selfless: if you need something your mom will go without to give it to you

Your mom puts you before herself with everything and is dedicated to you.

6. She loves you even when you don’t love yourself in the adolescent years

There are some tough years where we don’t even know who we are anymore but our moms stabilized that feeling with her love for us.

7. She listens to you when you need someone to talk to

To have an ear and a shoulder to cry on makes us feel better and moms are great at that.

8. Her tough love is only to make you better

Anytime you felt like your mom was hard on you, you will look back and see that it was to your benefit.

9. She passed her life wisdom on to you

Your mom teaches you valuable lessons in life that you wouldn’t have learned from anyone else.

10. She nags you for all the right reasons like taking an umbrella or wearing a warm jacket

Although you may find her nagging a bit frustrating, it is always for your greater good.

11. She will always have your back even when you’re wrong

You make mistakes but your mom always takes your side.

12. She supports all of your ideas and endeavors

Your mom is happy when you have passion for something and she does everything in her power to help you reach your goals.

13. She lifts you up when you’ve been defeated and takes the time to build you back up

When life gets you down, your mom will be there to pick you up.

14. She has loved you even through the hardest times

Life can bring on some harsh experiences that leave you feeling left in the dust and this is when your mom gives you the loving kindness you deeply need in these moments.

15. She made it possible for you to experience many things in your life even if that meant her taking on an extra job

The sacrifices your mom makes often include financial backing so even if it means getting a second job, she makes sure you can achieve your dreams.

16. She watched you in competition and cheered you on even if it meant waking up at the crack of dawn or standing on the sidelines in the rain

Your mom supports you in your activities and  always thinks you’re the greatest player out there (even if you aren’t),

Your mom believes in you and that belief makes you a better person in many ways.

How to Quit Your Boring Life and Start Living an Interesting One

How to Quit Your Boring Life and Start Living an Interesting One

Think you have a boring life?

The definition of boring is dull or not interesting. Maybe you’ve been doing the same thing and living the same life for too long, or maybe your daily routine is limiting your growth and happiness. Whatever your reason is, the following list of 20 things can definitely make any day more interesting. Some of them are silly, while some are more meaningful, so hopefully just reading the list makes your life less boring and sparks your creativity.

Let’s dive in the list to quit your boring life and start living an interesting (and meaning) one!

1. Channel Your 7-Year-Old Self

What would he or she want to do right now? Color? Paint? Run around outside? Play dress up? Eat with your hands? Play that instrument hiding in the back of your closet that you haven’t touched in years?

Just because you’re a grown up doesn’t mean any of this stuff will be less enjoyable than you remember it. Give yourself permission to play.

2. Go Play with Kids

Speaking of little kids, if you have your own or access to any (in a non-creepy way, like they’re your niece or your best friend’s kid, you get the idea) go play with them!

They didn’t create an entire show called Kids Say The Darndest Things because kids aren’t hilarious. They also keep things so simple, and we can really stand to be reminded of this and stop allowing ourselves to get bogged down in boring details.

3. Order a Hot Dog

While you’re eating it, Google: “What’s in a hot dog?” You decide whether or not you want to finish it.

4. For the Ladies: Wear Your Sexiest Lingerie Under Your Work Clothes

Your “little secret” will leave you feeling anything but boring all day!

5. Play Cell Phone Roulette

You’ll need at least one buddy for this. Scroll through the contacts in your phone, stop on a random one and call the person.

You could spark an incredible catch up session or be incredibly awkward. Neither are boring.

6. Fill out a Pack of Thank-You Cards

Give them to random people who probably don’t get thanked too often for doing what they do ever day.

Ideas: police officers, librarians, servers, baristas, cab drivers, sanitation workers, teachers, people behind any check out counter, receptionists, your friends, the guy at the falafel stand, etc.

7. Sign up for a Class in Something You’ve “Always Wanted to Do”, or Something That Makes You Really Uncomfortable

Ideas: pole dancing, salsa lessons, improv, pottery, cooking, knitting (yup, there are classes for this, too!), karate, boxing, something techy like the workshops they run in Apple stores, get Rosetta Stone and learn that language you’ve always wanted to speak, etc.

What’s good about joining an interest class is that you will also meet new people!

8. Interview Your Grandparents About Their Lives

You can bet they’ve had some crazy experiences you probably never knew about.

9. Get up on Stage at an Open Mic Night

Whether you’re funny or not, get up on stage and just talk funny. And if you’re not, memorize a few of your favorite jokes and tell those!

10. Do Something for Someone Else That You Wish Someone Would Do for You

We all have a few ideas on this list. I promise you will feel amazing after and anything but bored.

11. Start a DIY Project in Your Home

It doesn’t have to be super complicated. If you need ideas, there’re plenty on Pinterest. Or you can also check out these 30 Awesome DIY Projects that You’ve Never Heard of.

12. Plan a Weekend Trip or an All-Out Vacation

This will give you something to look forward to.

Even if you don’t have the time or money to go on a vacation, plan for a staycation, which is same fun and relaxing!

13. People Watch

Find a bench in a crowded area (centers of transportation like airports, bus stops and train stations are great for this!) and just observe.

People are infinitely interesting.

14. Eat Something You’ve Never Eaten Before

Bonus points if it’s a random fruit or veggie.

15. Dance

You can get your friends together for a night on the town or just pull up a video on YouTube and bust a move from your own living room.

If you’re feeling extra brave, you can even dance in public and get other people involved.

16. Go to YOUTUBE and Search “Funny Pets” or “Funny Babies”

This is also a great quickie ab workout as you will be laughing hysterically.

17. Pick up a Book and Start Reading

Check out the NY Times Best Sellers lists and grab a new book you can get lost in.

18. Step Away from the Computer and Go Get Some Time with People You Care About in Real Life

Facebook stalking doesn’t count as real social interaction. You can even share this post with your friends and vote on which one you’d like to do together!

19. Check out a Museum You’ve Never Been to Before

OK, depending on your interests, this one might actually be boring. If you love learning, art or different cultures though, this one is for you!

20. Write a List of Things You Desire and Truly Want

This is a great way to help you figure out the real reason why you’re feeling bored about your life. Maybe you haven’t really done things that you truly enjoy? Maybe what you’ve wanted to do all the time has been left behind?

Think about the list of things you really want to do, and ask yourself why you aren’t doing these things (yet). Then start taking your first step to make what you want happen.

Now go make your life interesting and live your dream life!
