Happiness and a Positive Outlook on Life Go Hand in Hand

happiness and a positive outlook on life

“Most folks are as happy as they make up their minds to be.” – Abraham Lincoln

Smiling faces and upbeat conversations.

A world full of creativity and authentic people.

Everyone leaping out of bed each day and truly celebrating a new day.

People looking forward to the day ahead because they’re being a contribution, using their skills and talents in a way they enjoy whilst making a difference.

This is how I imagine the world if everyone loved life.

Can you imagine a life where everyone was happy and fulfilled?

There are two ways to view life

I know everything in life has a yin and a yang; two sides to everything and therefore two ways of looking at every situation.

I understand this, however I cannot help but wonder how much more enjoyable life would be if there were more positive people in the world. If more people were optimistic and focused on the brighter side of life.

If people were driven by their dreams rather than their fears.

There is no doubt that in life shit will always happen. We will lose people we love, we will fail at things we attempt, and sometimes we’ll just feel tired, … Read more

One day I shall dig my nails into the earth, or bury my face in the pillow, or stretch myself taut, or raise my hands to the sky and … Read more

6 Effortless Ways to Regain Your Enthusiasm When You’re Dreading a Milestone Birthday

dreading a milestone birthday

“Let us never know what old age is. Let us know the happiness time brings, not count the years.” ~ Ausonius

I thought I would have been settled down by now…

I should be settled down by now.

If I was more committed I might have been financially free by now.

If I was more organised I could have been location independent by now.

I probably should have moved house by now.

These are just a handful of thoughts that have been swirling through my mind over the past few weeks.

I turn 35 in ten days and over the last year or so I have become increasingly aware that 35 is a milestone number for many women, particularly women who have not yet had children.

Initially I was excited about my birthday, as I am every year. I planned to be away somewhere nice or at least do something significant to mark the day.

35 did feel like a milestone to me, but at first it was a positive one. Gradually however I started to feel crap about my upcoming birthday.

I started thinking about all the things I say year after year that I want to achieve, yet … Read more
