Where All My Happiness Grows

When I moved away for University and started my journey towards a career I loved. I spent a lot of time thinking about happiness. I was meeting new people, started my youtube channel, then started my blog. I was for the first time taking classes with people who had similar life goals and dreams as I did and who strived to share how passionate they are. I had time to sit and think about things, this is something I never had time to do in high school. I started to think about being happy and what would bring more happiness into my life.

It wasn’t that I was unhappy but more to the idea of wanting my life to only be filled with people and things that made me happy. I wanted to remove the unhappy people and things to give me the best quality of life. I believe life is way to short to keep people in your life who don’t make you feel the best you can be.

Needless to say 2 years later here I am getting ready to start my third year of university. For some reason saying third year makes me feel accomplished, older, wiser and excited. I can honestly tell you I am so happy with my life. Sure I have bad days where I don’t feel happy or I feel mad, sad, and not thrilled with myself. But that is just a day I wake up the next morning with the intent of making happiness my daily goal.

The little things make me most happy like meeting my Mom for lunch, talking to Justin after work about our day, having dinner with my family, and this one I just love, wearing my glasses makes me happy so I have started wearing my glasses more than ever! Reading my kindle has always made me happy, and seeing my sweet dog Libby each morning makes me happy.

All of these things are awesome but when I do move back to University I lose a lot of them daily and I need to replace them with things in Nanaimo that make me happy. A few are, waking up and going for a walk around campus in the morning, yoga, mid-week spa nights with a hot shower, shea butter moisturizer, painting my nails and a cup of tea. I  don’t like to go out to a club or drink it just is’t what I find fun. I love to come back from my Friday class and clean, I clean everything and it takes me about 2 hours. Then I have a shower eat dinner and I let myself relax watch a movie or TV with my tea and it is honestly the greatest feeling. It is my me time.

A few things I have noted that I want to incorporate this year are going to the movies, exploring Nanaimo, hiking more, and taking more photos. It is a never ending journey to finding things that bring you happiness.

These photos started out with being a regular fashion post and showing off my new glasses. But I felt so happy when I saw these photos and I felt I was so happy in them. I changed the topic but I am still linking the outfit here for those interested!

    I love the message behind this post. I figured out a couple years ago that I didn’t need to keep people around that were negatively effecting my mood or life. It’s an important lesson to learn.

    Lovelovelove this! So true… we need to find the little things that bring us happiness and hold onto those. Especially when life gets tough, those are the things that get us through. 🙂
