Article: My Happy Place


When I saw this photo it immediately inspired me to write something about my happy place. My blog is positive only, which means I'm trying to go for a happy atmosphere. I want my visitors to read it with a smile on their face. It's also something that is within me. I choose happiness and for that I'm working hard every day. Happiness is usually not something that will come your way without any effort. It's a place within yourself and even if your life is filled with bad luck and obstacles you can be happy.

Don't ever wait until happiness will come your way, go and search for it. Life is short and you're the only one who can make it happen for yourself. Look for the things that will cheer you up and surround yourself with them. That doesn't mean you have to spend huge amounts of money, you don't have to buy a lot of things, it means looking at the small things that will cheer you up. Wear clothes in your favorite color for example and make an effort with your appearance. Even if you have to stay in all day you can look nice and if you look good on the outside you'll feel automatically better on the inside. Do it for yourself. If a certain type of music cheers you up, play it. And maybe make a little dance around the room if you can. If you like a certain type of food, treat yourself. Don't overdo it, but make it a regular (maybe weekly) thing to look forward to. Save a little bit of money each month to do something nice for yourself. If you don't have any left over, you can try to win it. If you persevere it will work. Write down the things that make you smile and do them for yourself. Allow yourself to be happy, it isn't something you should feel guilty about, you're entitled to some wonderfulness in your life.

It's easy to say you have to do something and then expecting that it immediately works. Don't be disappointed if it doesn't do the trick straight away. If you're being good for yourself on a regular basis and if you're actively striving to make your life more fun it will be. That doesn't mean it will take away all the sadness or the difficult things life will throw at you, but it will help you to be more prepared. If you feel better in your own skin you will feel better, you will look better and you'll have a happier life. I don't have an easy life, but I'm making sure I'm having as much fun as I can every single day. I write, I blog, I surround myself with wonderful stories and beautiful trinkets and I look at happy pictures and art online. If something makes me smile I cherish it and I try to share it. I do happy dances, I treat myself to some chocolate and I wear what makes me feel good. Hopefully by sharing the things that are making my days I'm creating a happy place that will also put a smile on your face.

  2. I'm agree with you that your blog is a happy place. I truly enjoy spending time reading posts and entering your giveaways. I'm in the middle of my second divorce and, unfortunately, still have to interact with my husband about once a week. Today was one of those days and he literally makes me sick(er) than I already am. I have a couple of chronic illnesses. Anyway, this was a very short marriage because he completely took away my happy place and doesn't believe in surrounding oneself with the small and beautiful things in life. Today, although I'm just starting to feel better, I'm proud that I made the decision to take my life back and each and every day I'm remembeingr and experiencing the things that keep me centered and joyful. :)
