Day three of the #31daymarch blog challenge prompts me to talk about What Makes Me Happy.
These days, I am not quite sure what makes me happy. I am self-admittedly in a funk which, unfortunately for me, happens every so often. I can drum up a full list of things which DON’T make me happy and I am working on removing those negative things – whether it be toxic relationships or an uninspiring job. If you are messing with my happiness project then you are out of here. Buh-bye.
Of course my husband and my children make me happy. Not in a fake, always happy sort of way but in a genuine, feel it my heart kind of way. They keep me going and keep me focused on the positive things. If it wasn’t for my husband and kids, I’m not sure what my frame of mind would be in these days.
Most of the time, it’s the really small things which make me happy. A cozy blanket, putting on my pjs after a long day at work, cuddling with my dogs, finding a great item on sale, relaxing at the beach, eating a really good brownie or ice cream cone with sprinkles and when I get to enjoy a perfect cup of coffee. I find much happiness in music and signing along with my favorite songs, watching my favorite television shows and movies and when I cook the perfect meal.
I am wise enough to know superficial things like money, nice cars and a beautiful home don’t really make you happy. It’s the little moments and I try to remind myself this everyday even when I am having the worst day ever (I’m not always successful).
This blog challenge is really interesting. It’s forcing me to do a whole hell of a lot of self-reflection. Not sure how I feel about that (wink-wink). Make sure you check out the rest of the my blog challenge posts and come along for the ride. xoxo
