My happiness journal

from here


For the last month i have recorded my happy moments in a single sentence each day, the lovely Naomi over at Seven Cherubs had this great idea (thank you so much for hosting this lovely little link up). I am oh so happy i joined in!

It has been a wonderful way of highlighting what i appreciate in life: Relationships with all the people dear to me and food (hehe), food + friends/family/my love are the happiest days!!!

Here is my month of happy:


Day 1 – 10th April

I am happy for forgiveness and the weight that has been lifted off my shoulders by letting go of the anger and sadness.

Day 2 – 11th April

I love how positive I am feeling and it is so nice to finally be getting things done.

Day 3 – 12th April

I adore morning snuggles with my love, what a great start to the day.

Day 4 – 13th April

Wandered the city on my lunch break, it was so nice to just be, look around and take in the world.

Day 5 – 14th April

My camera is making me so happy and I am loving photography.

Day 6 – 15th April

Dinner date and a catch up, I love my friends.

Day 7 – 16th April

Memories of dad: they make me sad and happy at the same time... I am grateful that I have them to think about... to remember how much he loved me.... and to remember what a great man he was.

Day 8 - 17th April

Happiness is: Vegemite on toast with my love.... and watching Wizz, Cos and Pen run crazy like around the house.

Day 9 – 18th April

Today I much love the people in my life that can get over the little shit, and see through the weird/strange/rude/depressed/not so great moods i have been in lately.... stress and anxiety can do strange things to a woman (lucky my assignments got handed in today....YAY).
