I don't know about you but I take great pleasure in seeing others happy. It's impossible for me to frown when met with someone with a smile stretched from ear to ear. If you ask me, happy spreads happy, it's undeniably contagious. Happiness is my drug, it's a high unlike anything else. Once happiness is obtained losing it isn't even an option. I pursue happiness on a full time basis regardless of the avenue I venture down happiness must always come along for the ride.
My trick for keeping your happy pants on? Appreciate life's little moments of happy. Truth is you can't just expect happiness to turn up knocking at your door uninvited. You need to notice it, be grateful for it then reach out and grab it. Once you've got it, hug it dearly. My favourite way to do this? Write happy lists of course. Happy lists ensure I stop & smell the roses everyday. I wrote about happy lists before here.
This is what's making me happy- full right about now...
♥House Hunting-Typing that sentence simultaneously sends my heart & belly a flutter. My body has been overtaken by equal parts excitement overdose and apprehension of the healthy kind. This memorable quotes has always stuck with me "The things you're most scared of are usually the most worthwhile" and while it may not reign true in every aspect of life, thinking along these lines makes embracing fear all the more sweeter.
♥Resigning-Confidence is oozing from my pores, I assure you this is the last time you'll catch me working in a job that isn't 100% me or or job that doesn't fill my cup with juicy, juicy self loving (damn girl, you're amazing) satisfaction. Now this is not to say I don't enjoy where I am currently employed, it just no longer serves me. To love my life entirely, I must love, support & be proud of the creativity and message that I put out into the world. Piece by piece I lay down the foundations for self employment.
♥Mama Visits-What a delight it has been having my mum visiting for the past three weeks. It's very easy to forget what a wonder woman your mum is not to mention all of the selfless "picking up after" you type things that they do. So if you're reading this mama thanks for tidying up the house, washing the dishes and cooking a killer pie that can't be replicated. I'll surely miss our late night chats when you go.
♥New Family Addition-After months of eager anticipation, Rylan Memphis greeted our world on July 3rd. Rylan is a whole heap of cutie patootie rolled into one tightly tucked 50cm bundle. If you glance quickly you'll spot that he possesses this wise, old-man knowing face which makes you think, have you been here before?
♥Miessence Products-If you're not already acquainted allow me to introduce Miessence to you, the first beauty company to ever gain organic certification. Miessence as a whole is pure natural awesomeness. Since beginning my quest to cut out all the toxic crap from life I was yet to stumble upon a company that wooed me with their vision. Then Miessence found it's way into my life and boy am I smitten. I totally get their if you're going for it, go for it all approach. All their products (health, body & home) are made to organic food standards. Yep, that means you can eat your moisturiser.Berry Radical is insanely delicious (hint: great for sugar quitters) & raging in antioxidants. Try it here! And yes this is actually food.
♥Bali Tripping & Planning-I totally rep team "live in this present moment" however, I also believe it's just lovely to have something special in the not so distance future to look forward to. There's nothing like an overseas trip to entice you to strive a little harder. We're jetting off for Bali & Sumatra in October and although our plans are still in early birdy stage, I can tell you this trip spells adventure.
What's making you happy full this week? What's your happy keeping ritual?
