Woah. Hello, September. I don’t know about you, but I am getting so excited for Autumn because I’ve just had the busiest Summer of my life, and I’m looking forward to life slowing down a little.
I really want to start using my blog like a journal and continue to share things that make me happy. One of the ways I’m going to do that is a roundup after each season to document what I did and the places I went, etc.
I’m really pleased to be bringing back my happy journal weekly posts because it’s so healthy to focus on the positive things that have happened to us rather than dwelling on the negative things that do not build us up. Of course, it’s also important to take a lot of the negatives in our lives so that we can learn from them, but here at The Happy Journal, I make it my mission to dedicate a time each week to list my happy thoughts.
It’s not Monday. But right now every day feels like Monday and so publishing my Happy Journal a day late when it doesn’t feel like it is good enough for me.
Sometimes our gratitude list is not huge. Sometimes that’s it’s hard to see the good things when life is hectic or not going as we planned or nothing spectacular happens that makes us think: ‘yes, I’m definitely thankful for that’. Being grateful for the little things is so important because it allows us to truly appreciate things we often take for granted. Like my trip to the dentist that you’ll learn about below. Things matter, no matter how big or small.
Hello, friends! I said when I first started my ‘happy journal’ series that it would be every Monday from here on out… about that. It didn’t quite happen, did it? But I’m back today with a super-sized happy journal with some of my snaps and positives from the past few weeks. I apologise for being a little all over the place with it and it’s going to be a long one I’m afraid. I hope you manage to stay until the end because I would love for you to share some of your positive with me!
Another week has gone by, how is it the middle of March already? I’m getting later and later with these posts – I apologise, it’s hard finding time to blog at the moment. Nevertheless, I bring you my weekly happy update.
