Happiness – A mental or emotional state of awesome (or something like that anyway).
We all try and obtain happiness in many forms, however complete satisfaction for what surrounds us is a little bit difficult to achieve. We’re always wanting that little bit more than what we have, and it’s all down to what we think we want but don’t actually need- most of the time anyway!
If more of us valued food and cheer and song above hoarded gold, it would be a merrier world. – J.R.R.Tolkien
What truly makes you happy? Like, really? Do more of it. Indulge in the kindness you can bring to the relationship with yourself. This links back to my previous post ‘Grow‘ as well as many of the others, where I spoke about it being vital to the relationships you have with those around you. Don’t let anyone tell you what will make you happy, or what is best for you, discover it yourself and hold on to it!!
It’s all from within. Focus on the good, and cultivate all those positive things! Something I think is fab for lil’ bits of happiness, is by picking out some of your favourite photos. Super goofy ones with friends and family, moments in time where you felt really good about yourself too. Stick them in random places around your house/ room. In books, drawers, cd cases- anything! I call it ‘the happiness hunt’. You’ll soon forget where you put them and find them in the future eventually.The feeling of discovering something you’ve forgotten about brings all kinds of positivity! What a better way to brighten up your future days! Pick photos or maybe little trinkets or tickets that bring back good things for you.
Go give it a go and as always, be kind to yourself ❤
