Haven’t written in a while, but I’m back! So I started writing this blog to pen down what made me happy each day, so that I would take the effort to find one happy moment in each day. And the more I begin to actually seek happiness, the more I realise that it’s in the littlest things where I find the most joy. And the more I try to find these small happy moments, the more happy moments I actually create for myself!
It could be anything, finding the first flower bud on your plant, cooking a hearty meal you’ve always wanted to try, calling an old friend and catching up on old gossips or even just playing a favourite track and looking at the stars.
Sometimes we wonder where our life is taking us, will we actually achieve everything we’ve wanted to, and will we ever be happy. But we tend to forget that being happy is a process, not a goal to achieve. No one knows where you’re going to end up, or what you’ll end up doing, so just enjoy the journey! Enjoy those lazy days, soak in the aroma of that coffee you’re having with your favourite book, go get drenched in the rain if that’s what you feel like doing, because this is where happiness lies, in the journey.
So this was my happy moment today, enjoying an ice cream by the window while it drizzled, and listening to some good songs.
When you start to look for happiness in the little things, happiness just gets easier to find. So instead of finding that one big achievement to celebrate, celebrate the small stuff! I hope you find tons of reasons to be happy today.
