5 reasons why I'm happy right now


'The happiest people don't necessarily have the best of everything, they just make the best out of everything that comes their way.'
In a bid to try and beat the 'It's-January-and-it's-back-to-work-and-reality' blues, I thought I'd write a bit of an upbeat post and share with you guys 5 reasons as to why life isn't so bad at the mo, and why I should be feeling more happy than sad that the Christmas break is now well and truly over!
Number 1 || I am loving blogging.  I think I mention this quite a lot, but I am having an absolute ball over here! Not only do I love blogging myself, being able to let my creative side out a little bit with the blog design, photographs and Instagram, but I'm really loving reading everyone else's blogs, and being part of the whole community! Everyone's blog is different and everyone creates such great content to read, that I'm pretty sure there's no two blogs, or bloggers that are the same! It's also given me some fab ideas for new make-up, fashions, books, and general things to try.
Number 2 || Family.  I have a lovely, albeit slightly bonkers, family. In fact, the same words could describe most of my friends also! It's so important to have these people around you, whether it be for help and support, or just to cheer you up if you're having a fairly rubbish day!
Number 3 || Tea and cake.  Okay, who doesn't love a good cup of tea accompanied by some cake. Honestly not sure if there's anything else I'd love more right now. After a mega long day at work, this, quite frankly, sounds perfect! And this is not the only scenario, I'm a firm believer that a brew can solve almost anything. Okay, maybe not solve problems, but it will certainly make you feel a whole lot better about them afterwards! Next time you're feeling a little down, just try it, trust me!
Number 4 || I have goals and aspirations.  I know this one sounds properly cheesy but just bear with me here... Whether these relate to where I want to take my blog, what I want to achieve at work, or just generally where I'd love my life to be in a few years time, having goals and aspirations is kinda what makes me get out of my extremely comfy and very warm bed every morning and drag myself into work! Because I know that if I didn't, I'd have absolutely no chance of achieving anything! It gives you something to aim for. And even better, once you get there, it can be the most amazing feeling, especially if you know you've worked so hard for it!
Number 5 || Someone smiled at me today.  Whether it be a friend, colleague, or a complete stranger, someone today made the effort and gave me a smile! This may be a strange one but I saw this somewhere years ago and loved it. I think it's such a lovely thought, and one which makes me smile when I think about it! To smile doesn't take very much, but it could genuinely make someone's day, so why not pass on a smile today :)

Why are you guys happy?



  1. Tea does definitely help!! The first thing I do when I get in after a long day is put the kettle on...before I take my shoes or coat off..yes, I am in fact a tea addict. Throw some cake in and you have perfection :)!!

    I agree, someone smiling at you does give you such a nice feeling :) especially if it's a stranger!!

    May the happiness continue into the rest of 2015!!

  6. Honestly, blogging has been making me so happy! I can't express this feeling to my non-blogger friends, but I love how I can have conversations with fellow bloggers on Twitter and even in the comment section of my blog. It's such a unique experience, and I love it so dearly :) Waking up in the morning, the first thing I'll check is Twitter, and I'm overjoyed when I receive notifications from fellow bloggers!
