happiness

went for a jog, washed my hair, shaved my legs, used a fancy body scrub, challenged myself somewhat, vacuumed the entire house, dusted the majority of the surfaces in the house, did the groceries, packed away said groceries, cooked japanese sweet potatoes for the next few days, put the rubbish out, tidied up my caterpillar-esque eyebrows, read some articles that i’ve had open on tabs for days… feeling accomplished today. this might seem like everyday things for most of you, but for someone who struggles to even contemplate anything apart from hiding from the world and staring at her ceiling for endless hours, this is a huge deal. i’m proud of myself right now. 

Laugh your way through life. Laugh at everything, laugh at the mistakes, regrets, good times, bad times, haircuts, clothes choices and friends. Find happiness in the hardest things you went through and find a way to make it something you can smile about. Life is only as difficult as you make it, make the decision to have a laugh and a giggle at what is happening and see where it takes you.

I never wanted tbings to end but my heart couldn’t take it anymore.

Sometimes I like to hold on to things, and not speak of or post them, and just keep that memory pure and filled with warmth and safely tucked away inside my heart, like my own little ray of sunshine 💓

Your job is to love as much as possible every day. If you can just love and adore everything you possibly can today, look for and feel the things you love, and turn away from the things you don’t love, your tomorrows will overflow with the untold happiness of everything you want and love.
