Today I'm celebrating happiness and all the different sneaky little ways it has of finding us, because suddenly I find myself truly happy, despite the fact my life has not changed drastically. I've finally realised that true happiness comes from inside yourself, not from the siuation you're in. It's how you react to the situation that makes the difference. Nothing is ever as bad as you think it is, and man are we lucky to be alive!
So here are a few things making me smile lately...
♥ making bacon and egg pie for the first time ♥ sitting infront of the fire on chilly nights with a cup of hot chocolate ♥ snow on the mountains ♥ wiping the snow off my car on monday ♥ making a snowman on the bonnet of my car ♥ driving out into the country to take photos of the snow, watching it get thicker as I go further out ♥ putting an electric blanket on my bed and wondering why I never bought one before ♥ roast dinners at the parents house ♥ seeing everyone in my family succeeding and being happy ♥ baking muffins ♥ singing along to the glee soundtrack in the car with the boyfriend ♥ hearing about my sister and friend's adventures overseas ♥ dreaming of owning a house and planning what colours to paint it and how to decorate ♥ getting to the part in pride and prejudice where elizabeth falls in love with mr darcy ♥ looking in the mirror and smiling at my gorgeous clear skin for the first time in eight years ♥ snuggling my warm boyfriend on cold winter weekends
"Happiness is like a butterfly; the more you chase it, the more it will allude you, but if you turn your attention to other things, it will come and sit softly on your shoulder." - Thoreau
