The Pursuit Of Happiness.

Screen Shot 2015-07-23 at 7.21.28 pmI always hear people saying they want to be happy. I hear people complaining they’re not happy. I wonder what happiness is. I wonder if I will ever find happiness. Is happiness even a thing. The whole idea of happiness is so confusing so I’ve come to the conclusion that happiness isn’t a choice. It’s not a right. It’s not something that can just happen. It’s a combination of different things that make you feel good.

Happiness is confidence. Happiness is companionship. Happiness is music. Happiness is movies. Happiness is sport. Happiness is acting. Happiness is a multitude of things. The possibility of your life being full of happiness unfortunately isn’t very likely.

Don’t be sad that you can’t be eternally happy. Don’t be sad that to day you might not feel happiness. Have hope believe that tomorrow will be a happy day. While today might be a happy day cherish that happiness remember that happy feeling enjoy it while it lasts make the most of evey minute of it. Life is full of ups and downs ins and out twists and turns. The only thing that we can rely on in life is that the future is unknown so we just have to make the most of today.

Whether it be something simple like a smile. Doing a random act of kindness for a complete stranger or maybe even just staying inside and watching movies all day because you’re exhausted you can make today a happy day and if you can’t make today happy there is always tomorrow. Honestly don’t dwell on things.

I’ve wasted far too much of my life worrying about silly stuff. Let go of everything that is holding you back. Free yourself from past relationships. Free yourself from the mistakes you’ve made. Don’t allow the voices of yesterday shape your tomorrow those voices are no longer relevant.

If someone asks you what happiness is you don’t need an answer. Just make sure you know the feeling and make sure it’s a feeling you experience more often than not. My happiness is completely different to yours which is completely different to your friends.

Similar to the fact that the future is unknown no one truly actually understands you and your thought process. People might think similar to the way you do but it isn’t possible for someone to think exactly the same way that you do all the time.

Live a life that you’re proud of! Live a life that makes you feel positive. Be as happy as you can be and remember everyone has bad days, bad weeks, bad months and sometimes even bad years. Try not to worry to much. Just look for the next possible opportunity to feel positive and grasp onto that feeling and try not to let it get away!

<3 Have a great end of the week! x
