“Our greatest happiness does not depend on the condition of life in which chance has placed us, but is always the result of a good conscience, good health, occupation, and freedom in all just pursuits.” Thomas Jefferson
Feels like ages ago since I wrote about happiness, don’t worry I’m still always happy just that my life has taken over my life in a massive way! Mornings start early and nights end in the morning so having time to actually stop and look at how amazing my life is, is difficult. I think by now we all know that I feel so strongly about the little things making up an amazing life. We all know by now that happiness is something I am extremely passionate about. Happiness is one of those rare things that too many people chase, when really we all have the ability to be happy right now. Happiness can not be affected by what job you have, how big your house is or what kind of car you drive. Happiness comes from the small things that happen daily in our lives. It comes from the things we tell ourselves every day. We all have the ability to be ridiculously happy regardless of what circumstances we are in.
During my 40 new things in 40 days, I discovered Bumble BFF, an app to help you make friends and guys if I have said it once I have said it a hundred times, you need to check it out. Even if you think you have enough friends, get your butt on it because you may never know who you might find. I would say that like 90% of my happiness lately has been from growing my female relationships and really making sure I am being a good friend, after all, what we put out into the world comes back to us. So if I want good friends I better be a good friend. Anna (below) was one of the first women I met on Bumble and definitely the woman I speak to most from it, and there is no way on this earth we would have ever met in real life, our lives just would never have crossed!
With meeting all these new women and making new friends its really important to me that I don’t forget my old friends, the women who have stood by me through all the crap, tears and moaning. Because believe me I did a lot and I am still amazed they stuck around. Especially Aimee, the poor woman has been going around the emotional roundabout with me and I have never heard her complain once.
Me and my sister enjoyed an evening at a Drive-in cinema, Top Gun was showing (the only Tom Cruise movie I can stand)! For me its so important to spend time with her when it can just be the two of us, I love my niece to death but it’s hard when I don’t have a child because I don’t have that mum head and since my sister has had her she has changed a lot, she has grown into a different woman and its important that I get to know the woman she has become, ok so that was a lot of rambling, but I hope you get it!
Can I say if you can find a drive-in cinema near you this summer, you need to go! We filled the car with snacks and blankets and got cozy as fuck! There was giggling, tummy rubs and sing-alongs, such a wonderful evening!
For the time being, dating and relationships are on the back burner while I work on my female relationships, I have been in relationships my whole life and now its time to start putting me first. I want to still make more friends and work on what I already have, as well as continuing to push my career. I am very much of the opinion that I am a whole person on my own and although I have not totally ruled out finding Mr Right or closed myself off to it. I do know it would take a LOT to impress me right now!
