People Who Add To Your Fun Jar

Today was an exciting, whirlwind of a day.  First I attended my board meeting for the Governor’s Economic Development Board that I serve on for the State of Utah, and then I ran over to attend the Women’s Tech Awards where I was humbled to receive their Impact Award at a large luncheon.  Next I had to run over to tape a television interview for KUTV which will air in a few weeks.  Finally I had to run to meet with my builder, and now I am finally back home to hang out with my daughter and my husband and to write my blog to all of you :).

As I sat down with my daughter to chat about her day she was sharing different activities that occurred in her day, I asked about a particular person who I knew had been known to be negative and cause problems.  Ashley immediately responded “Mom you just gotta choose to hang out with people who add to your fun jar!”    Instantly I knew I had my blog title for tonight’s blog – People Who Add To Your Fun Jar – I love it!

Nothing is better than hanging with people that add to your fun jar!  I have been SUPER lucky in my life to be surrounded with people like that – starting at home with my kids and my husband, then spreading to my workplace, I have been surrounded with amazing friends who make me laugh and who lift me up when times are tough and who always remind me that there is always time to have a little fun in life.

Let’s face it – Fun people make the world a happier place!  They can turn doing the worst task into a total party.  The make you laugh and celebrate and they spread joy to everyone around them.  Yes, choosing to hang out with people who add to your fun jar is the best way to ensure a happy journey in your life.  Fun people are pure enjoyment, and who doesn’t like pure enjoyment?!

This weekend I am super lucky to get to hang out with great friends who continuously add to my FUN JAR and I feel incredibly blessed for that.  I turn 42 years old this Saturday and I can’t think of a better birthday gift than having a life that is full of amazing friends and a VERY FULL FUN JAR :).

Love to all and wishes for an amazing weekend of people who add to your fun jar,

    With havin so much content do you ever run into any
    issues of plagorism or copyright infringement? My site
    has a lot of completely unique content I’ve either written myself
    or outsourced but it appears a lot of it is popping it up all over
    the internet without my agreement. Do you know any techniques to help
    prevent content from being ripped off? I’d truly appreciate
