“There is only one cause of unhappiness: the false beliefs you have in your head, beliefs so widespread, so commonly held, that it never occurs to you to question them.”
Anthony de Mello
For the last couple of weeks it feels as if I have been walking around or should I say floating around in my own little bubble. I am such a firm believer that what you put out into the universe comes back to you, maybe not straight away but it does come back to you. And I definitely feel that in the last couple of weeks that all my positivity and happiness is being rewarded to me in such positive ways. I share so much with you all that happiness comes from the small things in life, the tiny things that most people don’t notice are happy, such as coffee with friends. Lunch with a parent or ten minutes laughing with a partner. These little moments make our lives special so much more so than job promotions, new cars or a change of home. Just recently I have noticed all my happy little moments more than ever, and honestly I don’t want my life to change. I’m so thankful and do not take any of these moments for granted because I know how lucky I am. So here are some of the small happy moments that are shaping my world…………
Back blogging // Until recently I never released how much I took my time for granted, blogging is my absolute passion and I would love nothing more than to be able to do it full time. With changing job, house hunting, baby Alisa and the chap my time has become extremely precious and non-existent. And unfortunly blogging has had to take a bit of a back seat, which I hate but spending time with my loved ones will always come first. But I am trying different time management methods in a bid to make not only time for blogging but time for me. I managed three blog posts last week and I’m hoping for five this week, keep everything crossed for me.
Glasses // This might sound absolutely ridiculous to most of you but I know there will be a couple of people that get it. Posting a selfie of myself wearing glasses is a big deal for me. I have worn glasses since I was 18 months and although I do wear them most days I am very self-conscience about them. I detested wearing them as a child and as soon as I was old enough I switched to contact lens. For the first time in a very long time I felt comfortable about wearing them and decided to post a selfie of me in the on Instagram, although since I cringe when I look at it now. I know a lot of you are probably thinking this is ridiculous, but growing up I was bullied a lot about wearing glasses and that is something that has never left me as I have grown up, and posting a picture of me wearing them is a big deal for me
The Chap // I promise I am going to give you all a full update about “the chap” in the next couple of weeks. For now just know that he is making me smile so much and I’m very happy with him.
October feelings // I know it is a massive cliché now but I really do love October, my favourite time of year is 1st October-1st January. There is something so incredibly magical about this time of year. The world is changing and nature is dying in the most beautiful of ways. Its dark in the evening and getting cosy in front of a fire is the only thing I want to do. October is beautiful and filled with so much excitement for Halloween and the countdown for Christmas really begins.
Manchester life // I have been viewing flats and house shares across Manchester; I know I will find the perfect place soon. Until then I am continuing to ease myself in starting a new life in one of my favourite cities.
Morning with Aimee // I am incredibly happy with the support my friends have been showing me whilst my life has be going through such a large amount of change. Aimee has been amazing telling me off for not resting enough and not eating properly, she lets me rant about my live without a single complaint or a shut the fuck up Emma. Over the weekend we were able to actually get to spend some time together which was lovely, although I didn’t shut up talking about myself which I really hated but just couldn’t stop. I had so much fun and Aimee showed me all the best places to eat in her little town including Miss marmalades and their delicious freak shakes. It is safe to say I was in heaven. Thank you Aimee.
