in her shoes - a feature with positively positive!

it's wednesday, which means it's time for a lovely in her shoes feature!  today i am featuring one of my favorite gals, danielle of positively positive!  she is a breath of fresh air, always looking at things on the bright side and inspires me every day to be a better person!  here is a day in her shoes!

what motivates you to get your day started?

That certainly depends haha. My quiet time is what motivates me most of the time. It seems that this is the only time that I get to myself, since the hubs and daughter are big sleepers. I sneak out of bed and grab a glass of OJ and awake the computer to start my morning blog hop. Another thing that motivates me to start my day is my darling little terror Evangelina! She is very much a cuddle bug in the morning and I look forward to my cuddle with her.
(please pay no attention to the lack of make-up and damp hair.) haha

what part of your day do you most look forward to and why?

Nap time? haha Just kidding. I really look forward when my hubs gets home from work because then we can have family time. We dance, we color, and we share laughs. Its out time to goof off and enjoy one another. i miss him so much while he is at work. I also love bed time because that's another cuddle time for us all, We all cuddle beneath our warm blankets and read a book together and share some laughs. It seems as though we never sleep well if someone is missing. 

what do you like most about where you live?

I love the history and the seasons that this area has. I grew up in this area most of my life and it took me moving away and experiencing other areas of the United States (such as St. George, UT; Charolette, NC; and Washington D.C.) to really appreciate where I grew up. I live in Marietta, Ohio. Many people haven't heard of it and it tends to get over looked, but it is a beautiful city and filled with history. I love to travel and I would love to eventually live elsewhere, but Marietta, Ohio will always be my home. I will always be that small town girl no matter where I live.

what part of your day is the most difficult and what do you do to overcome that?

This is actually a difficult question for me to answer. I think I actually wrote this out several times and then erased it because I didn't make sense. The most difficult part of my day is when I let my insecurities get the best of me. It tends to happen when I am exhausted and I let my mind wander. I try to hide this part of myself as much as I can. I try to keep that positive front in check, but we are all people and we all have our moments of negativity. The best way for me to overcome this is to remind myself that I am doing the best that I can, that I have two very wonderful people in my life, and that they love me for who I am even during my blah moments.

It also helps when I blog about it and read all the love and support from some amazing friends in blogland.

what do you love most about yourself today?

hmm...Another difficult question. I am trying my best to love myself for all that I am. For all my curves and for my temper, but I know one thing that I absolutely love about myself and that is my ability to share love to all that I meet. It is something that I pride myself on because even if my day is a bit blue seeing a frown turn upside down from a stranger is so beautiful. I think that a lot of people forget that smiles are contagious and that the world would be much kinder if we all learned to smile a bit more.
