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.
