What makes me happy..

Not long ago one of my closest friends asked me a simple question... "what makes you happy?". This question got me thinking a lot about the things that make me happy and yes, I went straight into my journal and wrote it all out. I guess this post will be more of an outward journal for you all to get to know me a bit more and also make you think about what makes you happy.

Before I get into it, I always used to say to myself and other people, "I just can't wait to be happy". I genuinely used to believe that happiness is a destination but the older I get, the more I realise this isn't really the case. I'm sure you've all heard the quote "happiness comes from within" and honestly this couldn't be more true. 

My manager actually made me believe this even more after a conversation I had with her, she said that happiness is made up of moments, it's not a final destination or a continuous feeling. After looking back on all my happy moments so far I realised that I'm actually a happy person.

I can think of a lot of things that make me happy, from the little pleasures like watching my favourite series whilst having a glass of wine, to a day trip out in London! Happiness to me isn't just about the things you do that make you feel happy, it's also being around people who make you feel happy.

"Surround yourself with like minded people" - I used to hear this a lot and once again, I agree with this even more know that I'm getting older. When I look at the people in my life, not just anyone but the ones I have strong relationships with, I truly believe that they are like minded people. These are people I feel pure joy and happiness around, those who uplift me and inspire me to do better. If anyone in your life right now is doing the opposite of that then you've got some revaluation to do. I could get into more detail about "the type of friends you have" but I'll save that for another post.

In a nutshell, what makes me happy is being present in the moment with the people I love. As well as being with the people I love, I also really enjoy the moments where I'm in my own company. I can't tell you guys how much I love some me time.
