Bar my photo diaries, I’m not really one for doing ‘update’ posts or ‘diary entries’, but today I am fuelled with adrenalin and so really felt like channeling that energy into a blog post. My next post wasn’t scheduled till tomorrow but what the hell, I’ve woken up with the urge to write, and to fill you in on how Happy I feel right now. I think it may be something to do with the excitement of moving into our new flat on Wednesday *jumps up and down on the spot*
I’m super happy as I’ve never had my own place before. Okay, so it’s not just my place, I’m sharing it with my boyfriend, The Beard, but it’s just us two! It’s the first time in my life I will be without flat mates or roomies. Just me, and the love of my life, shacking up in London. Bliss. And after living out of a rucksack for the past 13 months (read more on those escapades here) we can’t wait to have our own space, and our own kitchen, and unpack our stuff, and basically have our own home.
In other news, I may soon become my own boss. I don’t want to say too much on the matter right now (mainly incase I jinx it and it all goes wrong) because it’s going to take a good few months – probably longer – of hard work, preparation and dedication, but as soon as I know more about it and where I’m at I shall fill you in. All I can say right now is that I’m really excited and feel very positive about it all.
You may have seen that in early April I started doing the 100happydays challenge. I have to say, I can really feel a change in how I feel on a daily basis. I’m not going to get all cheesey on you and say it’s made me the happiest person alive, or that I feel happy 24/7, because that is certainly not the case, especially last week when I had a stressful few days and had bit of a break down (I blame that time of the month). BUT, despite the downs I’ve had so many more ups. I have noticed that I am waking up in such good moods. I find myself feeling grateful for more things than I normally would, and I can tell I’m having a happier and more positive outlook on things. Even on the days that are stressful, I’m always cheered up by one of the many wonderful things or people in my life. Basically I’m finding the challenge easy because I’m never at a loss to snap up something that makes me happy, in fact the only problem is sometimes forgetting about the challenge because I’m too busy (too busy being happy of course).
To sum up, and if you hadn’t guessed – I am happy. Today is Monday, in theory I should be all moody and gloomy because the weekend is over, yet I’m super happy and excited; I have so much to look forward to and so much to be happy about and so much to be grateful for.
I hope you guys are all well and I hope my Happy Post has inspired you to be happy too. If not and your suffering Monday Blues, here is a little exercise for you. I suggest before you go asleep, you take out a pen and paper and jott down three things that made you happy today, or made you smile. Whether it was giggling with some work mates, a program on TV, going for dinner, or something as simples as your cup of tea in the morning. Then put it somewhere safe, and next Sunday night/Monday morning, if your suffering from the blues again, take out the notes and read it.
Happy Monday guys!
