What Makes Me Happy..
Hello there! I can't believe it's been almost a whole month since I have sat down at my dressing table, in my little room and wrote a few paragraphs or sentences. I haven't had much to share lately and nothing significant on my mind. I have almost never forced anything when writing posts on this little blog. In the past I have written posts I have not been completely happy with and as I have grown I have learnt that it's important to be happy with the things you do. If something doesn't make you happy, benefit you or someone/something you care about then you shouldn't do it.
So instead of trying the churn out a post I don't care about I decided to take some time and believed that when I'm ready I will have something I want to share with the world. And that is more than okay. I feel better because of it. Work and daily life can sometimes be all that I can handle and everything else becomes a blur. It's not a nice feeling but it happens, we're only human, we have good and bad days.
At the weekend I had ideas and thoughts go round in my head that has made me feel inspired. They're mostly hopes and dreams for the future and they are core thoughts that keep me going and remind me that where I am right now is all part of the journey to where I someday want to be. Holding on to those thoughts and the things that make me happy help me survive every day life.
10 things that have made me happy lately..
1, Planning trips for the rest of the year. This summer I'll be relaxing in Portugal for a few days, going down to Brighton for my birthday and having a girly long weekend in the forest. And a few more trips are in the works for later in the year.
2, Two of my best friends got engaged to their future husbands a few weeks ago, there is so much love around at the moment and weddings to look forward to.
3, Working out four out of seven days last week. Not only does the endorphins make me feel good afterwards, I'm also happy with myself for making the time to do something positive for my body.
4, My love and I shared a pistachio cake with vanilla ice cream for dessert at Ask Italian and it was DELICIOUS!
5, The warm and sunny days, there's nothing better than feeling the sun on your face.
6, Buying new shoes, yoga pants and pyjamas. All girls feel happy when they buy new clothes for themselves, we can't help it.
7, Going out for coffee with my sister. It's always so good to get out of the house and spend some quality time together.
8, Seeing all the flowers pop up, my favourites are shasta daisies.
9, The Great British Sewing Bee is back on TV, I love watching it and it really makes me want to get my sewing machine out and create something.
10, Late night Skype dates with my favourite guy, I love seeing his face and the presence he has in the room even when we're miles apart.
Have a great week everyone.
