On a scale of one to ten, how happy are you right now?
I’ve been working on the whole living in the now approach to life and to be honest, I am figuring that it’s certainly the best way to live. I am a happy person all-round (other than when I am known for stressing) but I am definitely happy.
There are always going to be things that worry us but I read a meme today that said if it doesn’t make you happy is it really worth it? And the truth is, no, it really isn’t. I sat there and thought to myself, I am alive, I have good health, great friendships and family along with the biggest love of all in my life.
I know I’m not the only one to tells myself to puts things aside, breathe, and live for now. There are definitely more people out there who know what I am going about. Perhaps there are more who don’t but knowing that some people understand makes it okay. Even if they didn’t it would still be okay. Because I am me and that’s what I will always enjoy being.
Today I had one of the most chilled days and I loved every moment of it. I woke up not long before 8.00am and I went downstairs as usual like I always do and had a chat with my mum. My boyfriend had woken up because my niece came around for breakfast before she had to travel home.
Afterwards, Daniel and I found ourselves having an hour and half long nap. I was so comfortable and I can honestly say I am my most chilled self around him. Of course, he’s my go-to person when I need to rant, cry, smile – whatever it may be, he’s there. But today, I took the opportunity to see what’s in front of me. No matter what tomorrow brings, or the next day, the love and support from this man will always beat anything that happens in my day.
Isn’t it amazing what a hug can do? Anyone that knows me well know how much I love my hugs. I had plenty today and I have felt so chilled. It’s often the little things in life that we hold onto for the longest amount of time and that’s what keeps us going. That’s the way it is for me anyway.
So on a scale of one to ten, how happy am I? Unquestionably more than ten. Yes, I did say one to ten, but there’s always more positivity to life than meets the eye. I’ve spent an awful lot of time worrying about what if scenarios in my mind, that it’s time to open my eyes and make the most of what I am blessed with rather than how I’m judged or thinking negatively.
The way I see it, there’s nothing stopping me from having a smile on my face. I am going to remember that, we all deserve to be happy and I shouldn’t worry so much about the little things. There could come a day when something devastating happens – I probably won’t be anywhere near ready but for now, it’s about making the most of the happiness that life has to hold.
I’ve said it – so I have to put myself to the test! Let’s see if you can do it with me. Remember, I did say that there’s going to be more positive thinking in 2017. It’s still only the beginning so there’s much more to come.
