I Live For A Happy Life

What comes to mind when thinking about a successful life? Is it money, where you live, who is in your life, or is it your happiness? Through my eyes happiness is the answer to a successful life. Sure you can have a job and make a lot of money and consider that successful, but are you in a happy life?

I want my life to be happy, I only want to be surrounded by happiness. Even now I have been fighting my instinct  to get rid of the unhappy things (old habit can be hard to break) and release them from my life. I am starting to get to a place where I love everyone, everything and everyday of my life. Sure school makes me want to cry, scream and runaway sometimes but thats just an unhappy day not an unhappy life. I know that I only have 4 weeks left and then I am free to go back to my amazing job for the summer.

I gauge my happiness on comparing where I was last year. After thinking I know that this year I smile more, I laugh more, I feel like my life is in a good place with amazing people. Looking at what I have planned for the summer, I’m so excited. Knowing that even just from last year I am living a happier life, that makes me proud. 

This year I have become a huge advocate for self care. It is something I really care about and believe in. Some people who see me outside school right now think I can be reserved and kept to myself. But I’m just taking care of myself.

In my program I am on all the time. I have to show I am a hospitality student, thats a job in itself. My work here on campus and networking all day long is exhausting. When I get back to my dorm I normally take that as my alone and quiet time. If I don’t take it I get overwhelmed and I feel uncomfortable. 

Since working on self care I am living a happy life. Sure I am still tired from school and come home to a full night of blogging and other work, but I take care of myself and I start my next day ready to take on the world. The point is I’m in a happy life, and all of the little things I do each day add up to that. I can’t imagine living an unhappy life anymore. Life it too short to waste time being unhappy. 

I will leave you with a question if you are unhappy. Take 5 minutes today and write down anything that you are unhappy with in your current life. How can you change them?

Anything is possible, you CAN do everything. I watched a video yesterday by one of my favourite and a very inspirational person to me. He talked about do the things you can’t. I will link the video here it is only 3 minutes and it really touched me with inspiration. 

I hope this can spruce up your Wednesday a bit and help push you to the weekend. Have a wonderful day <3

    Love this! I think it’s so important to look at what is making us unhappy so that we can remove it / fix it and focus on the GOOD stuff!!

    I’m so glad that you have found ways to make your life happier! I will say this though that some sadness isn’t bad because without the sadness you won’t truly appreciate the happiness 🙂

    I like that you compare your happiness to that of yourself last year. Comparison with others can be a thief of joy, but comparison with yourself can be a great motivator!

    Such a great reminder. While having all of those things can sometimes help, they won’t make you happy. Life is short – why waste it by being unhappy? Love this!
