Hello there, it’s been almost a month!
How are you, what’s up, what’s new, how are you holding up?
I have to say I’ve had a pretty much amazing month so far. You know the feeling of waking up in the morning and instantly feeling happy? Excited about what the day ahead of you has to offer? Yes, that! (One of the first things I think about when I wake up is also food, so that might contribute to the good mood? Haha)
No but really.
I’ve been seeing more and more pictures of the 100 happy days project all around the social networks. I have checked the whole thing out and it’s great. It’s great if you’re able to see the optimism even in the worst days. It can help you discover the pure awesomeness of life and just being here. BUT. You have to learn to see that even without having to document it each and every day for ONE HUNDRED days in a row. What’ll happen when that ends? You’ll stop thinking about what makes you happy and simply return to the dull life you’ve had before you started the whole thing. There is a high chance that you’ll be miserable because you’ll feel like there’s nothing left to hold on to. You’ll feel like there are only tens, hundreds, thousands of negative things facing you on a daily basis.
PLEASE keep in mind that life is awesome. No matter how negative, stressful and hard it can get. It’s awesome. Because each and every day offers you a chance to be the better version of yourself than you were yesterday. Do you feel like everything you’ve done today has gone wrong?
SO WHAT?! You can’t fix the things that are done already. What you can do is take a deep breath and look ahead. What can you change tomorrow? What can you do in order to see the same situation in a different way the next time it comes along?
It starts here. It starts at the point where you realise you have so many things to be happy about without having to constantly remind yourself about them. It becomes something natural. You’re happy and you don’t even have any idea why. You just are. And people can sense that, because it’s so much easier to be around people who constantly smile, than next to people who can’t get enough of the misery they think they’re in.
In other news, the weather finally improved itself! I was able to go running for the first time this week. The neighbour’s dog joined me for the whole route and the poor little thing was barely able to keep up! Haha. I also made dinner for the family and I’m super stoked to have a nice, quiet evening in.
I’m super stoked about next Friday! It’s the Friday before the last spring break we get in high school so me and my great class mates are going out for a dinner and out on a party afterwards! Such an awesome way to relax after a stressful month and prepare for a month of hard core studying for finals.
Happy Easter! I wish you a lot of awesome food and good times with the family!
