So I’ve learnt that happiness just doesn’t happen because you want it so bad. It’s not something that you can force upon yourself. In the process of healing myself and finding out who I am, I’ve learnt that you have to let happiness come to you. It comes to you in the smallest ways and its up to you to see it and receive it. For me, happiness is in the light rain, the salty breeze by the ocean and the dusky sky. Happiness is a good book on a gloomy day with a glass of chilled iced tea at my favourite t lounge. Happiness is receiving a text from a close friend asking if I am ok and and laughing together at silly thing. Happiness is finding an old momento of something you cherished years ago and finding ways of how you can make use of it today. Happiness is a little bit of retail shopping and finding something you’ve been looking for, for a very long time at half the price. Happiness is your best friend leaving behind all her work and coming over to spend some quality time to be with you. I could go on but you get the just of it… It’s nothing forced upon and so there’s no point in you and I pursuing it oh so constantly. Besides, the best kind of happiness is the unexpected kind 😘 learn to embrace and cherish it.

Reposting a quote that I found online for this post. I found it to be really simple but also extremely helpful in keeping a good and healthy lifestyle 🙂 As you all know, the past few months have been a rollercoaster ride for me but I am not one to give up all too easily either so I’ve been keeping myself going with positivity and good energy. Like in the quote, I find that letting go of what you cannot control is somewhat a way of showing and proving you are a lot stronger than you think; not just physically but mostly mentally. It takes a lot of self control and understanding to do this but with a bit of practice every day, you’ll definitely get there. Keep in mind to let go of what does not serve your purpose in this world like negativity and bad attitude. These are just two things that I cannot personally stand (also not forgetting disrespect) so if you there is something that does not make you a better person or make you feel valuable and special, then just get rid of it!
As much as there is bad and negativity in the world, there is also a lot of good so learn to embrace it. If you’ve got a roof over your head, clothing to keep you warm, food to fill your stomach and family and friends who are important to you in your life, you’ve got to accept that life is good and be blessed. Learn to appreciate the small things in life and in turn you’ll learn to appreciate and value bigger things that come your way. Life is all about giving and receiving and if you want to receive all things good, know that you need to be giving out some good and positive vibes too.
Before trusting others, I suggest you learn to lean and trust in yourself. You have only one life to live and if you don’t live up to your own expectations, no one else would. Learn to appreciate yourself and value who you are. Be a friend to yourself and most importantly find your soul mate in you. Lastly but definitely not the least, learn to breathe. When the going gets rough, breathe. When you’re overly ecstatic, breathe. When you’re scared, lonely and panicked, breathe. When you’re on a high and feeling free, breathe.
Much love! Xoxo

Questions that make you think!
Look what came in the mail today! Goodies from Bath and Body Works and NYX Cosmetics – Butter Lipsticks and lotions from the aromatherapy bath and body line.
I’m loud. I’m quiet. I love hanging out with people. I love being alone. I’m talkative. I shut down. I’m forward. I’m shy. I’m conservative. I’m outgoing. I read. I write. I listen to music. I dance. I love attention. I love not standing out.
I have my moments. I’m fun and then I’m boring. I’m boisterous and then I’m meek. It’s normal for me to go through so many emotions and phases. I makes me all the more colourful on a personality note and also one of a kind. If you can’t handle me at my worst, then you seriously do not deserve me at my best. I am all this and more. Shutting down and being a bit low is a phase and a part of human life. Accept me. If you can’t, then get the hell out of here. It’s nothing personal really.
I am more awake and aware at night…right now for example. Yes, my thoughts also pour in at night. This is not unusual though…. I know others who feel the same way. My creative juices pour out at this time of night and I’ve actually written some of my best pieces at dead of night. I guess it’s the peace and quiet that gets to me. I find it comforting and I find myself open and more confident. This is my happy time 😊
