H is for Happiness

One of the big things that was on my mind at the beginning of this year was how to be happier.  I was very unhappy with how things were in my life and I was really searching for a way to change that.  It was something that I thought would be a lot harder than it turned out to be.   
Turns out all I needed to do was stop stressing about all the shit I can't control and enjoy the little things.  (I'm not so good at that not stressing thing)  I am however getting fantastic at finding the joy in the little things in life.
Friday movie nights with my kids, impromptu coffee meetings with friends, mastering a new crochet stitch, all things that bring more happiness into my life.  A 5am workout, an hour spent studying for my course, a page written for my novel or a blog post written is another step towards a happier, saner me.
Everytime my kids want me to teach them something, make them something, do something with them is another chance for me to spend quality time with them.  Once I changed the way I thought about things I found myself a lot happier and it feels great.


  1. Excellent advice. I think many people think that "the world" has to change to bring them happiness...so much easier to just enjoy the good things within you!

  5. I've found that it's truly the little things that are the "big" things that can bring happiness. Glad you found some!

    I was complaining about how I disliked getting bills sent out to my customers. A friend said, "look at it another way--those people are happy customers and when you send bills, you're getting paid for your hard work! Tell yourself you enjoy it!" Sounds corny, but it really changed my attitude.
