Sometimes I feel like I use the word "happiness" a lot. But there are so many little things in life that I attribute to that feeling. I don't need a big ole fancy house or a ton of shoes in my closet to make me happy, a puppy kiss when I get home or a super yummy ice cream sandwich is just fine. I started this year with a new resolve to focus on these little bits of life that can easily slip by if you're not careful. And also to live my life in a simple and more kind way, which can be accomplished *i think* by letting go of worries that you can't control and negativity that isn't necessary. Not everyone is out to get you or talks about you behind your back. Not everything is the end of the world or worth twelve phone calls to various friends to vent and complain. I'm not saying I've necessarily thought or done all of these things, but I'm observant.... I've seen it happen often around me. I couldn't keep up with it all! I've found in just these few short weeks I've been able to sleep better and face some of the things in my life with more positivity, simply by having a better outlook for each day. It's not always easy, looking at the bright side or finding happiness when the day starts to just pull you under, but bringing myself back to these few principles eventually makes a difference. Life it too short to waste time on things that don't matter in the end and quite frankly I'd rather have smile wrinkles than frowns!! Haha:)
And there you have it. My ten cents. All rolled up in a little blog post.
