“It isn’t what you have, or who you are, or where you are, or what you are doing that makes you happy or unhappy. It is what you think about.”
Usually I write a round up of my happy moments at the end of each month but have been thinking “why wait to the end of the month!” I mean I’m always telling you not to wait for the big moments embrace the small happy moments that make your world happy. Usually these are the moments we overlook because they aren’t a fancy holiday, job promotion or a new car but they are the moments that shape our lives, they are the moments that make us smile. So here are some of the moments from last week that made me smile.
Last week I went trampolining with my friend Britney and by the end we both had cheek ache from laughing so hard, mainly at me being as graceful as a elephant on roller skates!!! The second I plopped onto a trampoline I became six years out again, gigging and screaming I’m too scared. I sent more time on my bum than bouncing gracefully through the air much to Britneys amusement. By far the best bit about being a adult is acting childish!
There are very few things in this world that make me happier than when I’m out walking with Dave. Everyday he melts my heart with his tail wagging and wet kisses and when it’s just the two of us on a early morning walks with the wind in our fur it feels like an adventure. I absolutely can’t imagine my world without him in it even when he decides my head is a good place to sit ( Dave has some size issues, he thinks he’s the size of a cat ).
As a child I would spend so many wonderful days out with my family in Blackpool that it kind of a special place to return to with them. And last week me my brother and dad headed to the seaside town for some doughnuts and some plan old childish fun. My papa bear is extremely ill and now finds its difficult to leave the house for very long and impossible for him to drive any distance. But that doesn’t stop him from trying to leave the house so every opportunity I get to take him out for the day is really special to the both of us because who knows how long we have left together.
Considering that I’m 32 years old and have travelled to more countries than I ever thought imaginable there is still so much of my own beautiful country that I haven’t seen yet. And last week I took a couple of days off work to do a little exploring of our beautiful nation. And let’s face it just having a couple of days off work is enough to make you smile a little more.
A big slice of heaven in the form of cake! Enough said.
Nothing says British Sunday afternoon more than a walk around one of are many beautiful national trust properties. And for me it’s my favourite way to spend a lazy Sunday afternoon. I find walking around a beautiful English garden so peaceful and it allows me to daydream for a couple of hours.
My Thumper jumper & Bambi usually hate to be bothered but the last couple of weeks have been loving a little tummy rub and I will take their affection whenever I can get it. They are both rescue bunnies so I don’t take it personally we just give them a loving home and are there when they want us.
I freakin LOVE Autumn, I could live in a world of just Autumns, for three months a year we get to experience the most beautiful of changes, where every single colour is seen in breathtakingly beautiful soft light!
“God must be a painter. Why else would we have so many colors?” – A beautiful mind.
What has made you happy in the last week?
