On My Happy List #04

This week feels like it's taking forever and I've got a ton of work to get through at the moment, so I thought I'd take a break and write a happy list before I submit to complete negativity and refuse to get out of bed tomorrow morning! Before I start, can I just do the generic thing of expressing my shock at how quickly February's gone?! It started with snow, included my birthday, and now mocks, so it's been a bit of an up and down month but it'll be March in a few days which means spring is *finally* nearly here and I can put February to rest for another year. On with the list...


1. Mantras like the one above. I truly live by quotes like these and they really help me to keep positive and remember what's important. I especially love this one as it captures two things that I really believe will make you the happiest you can be; laughing until your stomach hurts with your friends because something is so hilarious, and getting a good night's sleep when you're exhausted. And, as my Mum always said to me, things always look better in the morning after a sleep. Aren't words to live by just marvelous?

2. Changing seasons. In the past couple of weeks the sun has put his hat on and it finally feels like winter is on its way out. I do love winter, particularly when it snows, but I'm so ready for spring now. It made me so happy the other day to see some beautiful snowdrops and bluebells beginning to poke their heads out of the ground; a true indication that spring isn't far off and soon the trees will be blossoming again. There's something remarkable about witnessing one season departing and one arriving so I'm loving this period right now. 

3. Getting a good night's sleep. I don't want to jinx it or anything, but for the past few nights I've been sleeping really well. It amazes me that this is the case considering that I'm still in the midst of a full-blown cold but I'm not complaining! I've also managed to go to sleep, lights out and all, by 10pm for three nights in a row - I've really never felt better... apart from this cold that isn't budging.

4. New jewelry. I was very spoiled on my birthday, particularly with some beautiful new jewelry. I'm loving wearing a new necklace from my sister, earrings from Harry, and a bracelet from my favourites; they somehow manage to make every outfit feel special and that is something to be celebrated!

What about you? What's making you happy currently?
