“It is possible to live happily in the here and now. So many conditions of happiness are available—more than enough for you to be happy right now. You don’t have to run into the future in order to get more.” -Thich Nhat Hanh
I have so much to be happy for this week, I know I go on so much about looking for the little things in life, but if you miss the little things than you are missing out on your life. So ever time you smile or giggle just take a second to remember that feeling and what made you feel like that, then fill your life with it.
Finally after more than three weeks suffering with vertigo I finally felt well enough to live my house, although I’m still having some dizzy spells I’m feeling much better and almost back to my normal self. I can’t tell you just bad it was not to be able to leave my house, needing help to get dressed or having only partial vision. It certainly has made me appreciate my health more now, there are so many people for whom this way of life is normal and they don’t have the chance to get better. I will never ever complain about having a sore throat or cold again.
I freakin love Frozen, in fact it could be my second favourite Disney movie ever ( after the little mermaids, naturally ). With having so much time at home lately I have been getting cosy. I must have watched Frozen 500 hundred times now, I know it word for word ( I may or may not have the soundtrack in my car, who doesn’t love a cheesy sing along ). So all tucked up under half a dozen blankets with all my favourite sweets and singing along ( extremely badly ). Nothing cheers me up faster than a good old sing along.
I think I must be part mermaid because I’m pretty sure I could spend my entire life living in a bubble bath! And every bubble bath I take becomes a event, candles are lit, I spend more on bath products than I do on clothes and I’m in there for at least a hour. Nothing makes me happier than be covered in bubbles and reading until the water goes cold. Have you read The girl on the train, how amazing is it?! One of my favourite books this year.
I freakin love Halloween almost as much as I love Christmas, what’s not to love about a holiday where you can dress as whatever you want and get sweets off strangers?! I have been spending all my free time practising my spooky make up ( how bad I am at it is pretty scary ). Acting like a big kid has made me pretty happy, how often can you paint your face bright colours and play with fake blood.
My baby girls make me so happy, they are big balls of fluff. I could happily live in a zoo or at least turn my house into a petting zoo. Next on my list is a couple of guinea pigs and maybe a goat ( I have a lot of love to give ).
What’s made you happy this week?
