My Happy List

I firstly apologise for my very neglected blog. I guess I used to blog quite a bit when I was really poorly as it's an easy thing to do from my bed, but since making improvements other things have taken over. Not a bad thing, just a change, and here I am, writing my thoughts to the world again.

I thought I'd start blogging again this evening, I'm not sure why, although I know my friend Alex has had quite an influence on me. I have so much I want to talk about, I miss sharing my thoughts and ideas, and I guess blogging helps me sort them out in my head too, kind of therapeutic ey.

I've been feeling a bit sorry for myself today, too much stress & not a good enough immune system. But after having my casual breakdown I managed to think of all the things which make me happy. Hence, my happy list. People forget with their busy lives to appreciate the things which mean the most to them, and I think it's important to try take a minute to show your appreciation for people, places, feelings.. whatever you have to be thankful for.

My happy list
I have narrowed this down to 10..

  1. Family. Can't even tell you how much they mean, that's all that needs to be said.
  2. Health. Although it seems a bit hard to be thankful for at this very moment in time, I looked at my posts from beginning my blog and I've seen how far I've come. One lucky thing. 
  3. Friends. Today I felt alone and that everything was happening around me. I started getting messages to say get better soon, and then I received a box of donuts (and who cannot be cheered up by donuts?!) from Alex and Vic, what beautiful people.
  4. Learning new things. I absolutely love learning. I'm one of these people who wants to learn, to gain new skills, and to be the best I possibly can. Today I started to learn 'Let Her Go' on guitar and it was amazing. So thankful for all the people who widen my knowledge.
  5. Teaching. Linking to the one above I love to help people gain skills that they never knew they had. Dance teaching has always been my dream job and how lucky I am to be able to do some now. Just seeing improvements in technique and confidence gives me my own boost.
  6. Singing. I love to sing. Getting my uke out and having a bit of a sing song session tends to happen once a week. Occasionally the piano gets played too. Music is magical. 
  7. Driving. I think it's mainly to do with where I live. I totally love to go out on a drive with my music on and windows down. I guess it's the freedom which comes with it.
  8. The unexpected. I guess this can be seen as a bad thing, but sometimes I love unexpected results. Today my best friend called out of the blue and it was lovely to talk to her. I love unexpected post, and bumping into people. 
  9. My camera. Whether it's my DSLR or my iPhone, I love taking pictures. I like documenting things which have happened, whether it's just on Facebook or in a scrapbook. One day I'm going to get a polaroid camera ..
  10. Plans. Yes, I do get stressed by plans most of the time, but I like making plans to see people or do things. I always think it's important to have something to look forward to every month, which I tend to do. 
Bit of a cheesy blog this one, I'm sure I'll share some of my deeper thoughts eventually. As for now, it's time to sleep.. I'll try make this a weekly thing!
