Happy Monday Everyone!
Just a simple phrase has been stuck in my head this weekend that everyone knows but not everyone thinks about all the time. Don’t Worry. Be Happy. It’s so simple and sweet, but also a perfect reminder to just enjoy the moment.
The holidays are just around the corner which is always an exciting time with a lot to look forward to, but before then we have to get through this waiting period. Where day light savings ends and it gets dark, fall slowly fades away and winter starts making a stand. Also for us, the wedding and honeymoon are in the books (and one for the books), so we’re coming down from all the excitement and getting back into everyday life.
At this point, it can be easy to get negative and not see the good things in life. It’s easy to focus on just the negative, to get in the habit of complaining, and to forget about all of the little blessings that sneak in our lives everyday.
I just want to remind everyone that this time of year, be simply happy. Don’t let the little things get you down, don’t forget to notice the beauty in the small things and the moments that make life great. Life will happen no matter how much you worry or stress, just be grateful for the good and the rest will follow.
If you need help figuring out what these moments are, I definitely suggest reading a couple posts about journaling, getting out of your funk, and bliss. I hope you can use these to find what makes your life wonderful, because there is always something out there that can put a smile on your face, no matter how bad the day.
5 Things That Make Me Happy This Morning
1 – Fall
It’s been a beautiful season with great colors, great weather, and great apples. With the wedding I haven’t had as much free time as usual, but I’ve still soaked up my favorite time of the year with hitting the apple orchard once or twice, fall walks, and of course our trip up north for the wedding.
2 – Great Candles
I know, it’s the simple things! I just got one of my favorite Mahogany Teakwood candles from Bath & Body Works and it makes me love this season even more. Sometimes the smallest things can change your mood, like your favorite scent, and turn your day around
3 – Good Friends & Family
We’ve had some great times since coming back to reality, playing euchre, going to the apple orchard, and making great plans with friends. I’m thankful for the people that put a smile on my face and keep me going when I need support.
4 – My Husband
Still weird saying that, but this crazy man keeps me smiling and happy every moment possible. Having my best friend to fall back on when I need it most puts a smile on my face.
5 – This Life I’ve Built
Things aren’t perfect, but it’s the imperfections that make each day special. I’m proud of my hard work, ambition, achievements, and dreams that have made me who I am and who I’m becoming.
What makes you happy this Monday morning?!
