My friend Kate described me in an email the other day as the queen of happiness and even though I was honoured to receive such a compliment we both know some days that couldn’t be further from the truth.
I spoke to a friend on the phone the other night she was upset because she’s not happy and doesn’t know how to be happy. As a friend you try and give the best advice you can and hope that something you have said has made a difference even in the smallest way.
It has taken me some time to be happy I guess like a lot of people I’m figuring out life as I go. I know happiness for me didn’t come overnight and it was something I had to work on everyday and still do when I’m having a bad day. I try and be positive and find the silver lining or just be around people who make me laugh and smile.
I believe getting rid of people in your life that drag you down is a must and finding out what makes you happy is essential. It has taken me a while to form my list of what makes me happy and I know this list will change but here it is as it currently stands.
*Making people laugh
*Being with good company
*Eating foods that are high in calories
*Spending beyond my means
*Getting massages, facials and my nails done
*Singing I will survive at the top of my lungs
*Trying new things that I suck at
*Writing this blog
* Making new friends
*Spring flowers and summer fruits
*When I find a pair of size 5 shoes in the sale racks
What makes you happy?
