Things in Your Life that Are Better Than Ever

Better than Ever . . . I am now a "grown up." Growing up I thought all my problems would be solved when I was a grown up, and while they aren't, I now have the skills to deal with challenges that come my way. Life is better because I have a good head on my shoulders, a great husband, and the ability to think things through. I am able to look ahead to see the consequences for my actions or words, which prevents many arguments and much hurt!

TwitterMoms and Dove® gofresh™ are teaming up to bring you a fun new blogging program! If you haven't heard, Dove® gofresh™ just got a boost of NutriumMoisture™. The folks at Dove® feel this has taken Dove® gofresh™ from good to great. That made us wonder, what in your life has gone from good to great... what in your life is better than ever? We want to celebrate how your life has evolved. Look at where you are now, compared to your life in the past. Taking time to stop, reflect and be thankful is always so refreshing!

Dove® gofresh™ is also sponsoring a Facebook photo contest that you can share with your readers. Encourage your blog readers and followers to share their photos about what's "better than ever" on the Facebook contest page for a chance to win a spa weekend getaway in Sedona, AZ, and thousands of dollars worth of great prize packages from Dove® gofresh™!
