I really enjoyed reading Michelle’s 3 Lovely Things post back in March, and have been wanting to do my own version of it ever since, so here it is! It’s super important to take time to reflect on your life and all the good things around you, and that’s exactly what today’s post is all about 🌞
3 lovely things in my days
Ever since I first watched what would become one of my favourite movies, The Perfect Man, back in 2005, I have wanted to bake. I was 9 at the time, and I finally started to give baking a proper try last year. I have already learnt so much since then, but the best thing I have learned so far is how much I absolutely love baking. I love it so, so much. I spend every single weekend whipping up something in the kitchen, and I can’t believe it took me so long to finally take it up. I can’t wait to see what else I end up creating in the future.
Another hobby of mine that was influenced by The Perfect Man was starting a blog. Once again, it took me quite a few years to actually start it, considering The Small Adventurer has only been around since August 2016, but I am already so in love with everything about blogging, and I can’t imagine ever not having it in my life again. Whenever I’m not baking, I’m blogging, or doing something that will somehow correlate to blogging, and I love every second of it.
I truly believe that we play a big part in our own happiness. I went from being a sad, bitter, and angry teenager to a young adult who is in love with life and looks forward to waking up every single day. I never thought that was possible, especially not for me, but it is because that’s exactly what happened.
There are a lot of things that are out of our control and sometimes you’ve just got to ride them out, but certain things we can control, yet we choose not to. In hopes of helping someone else out there who is exactly like I was, who despises the world and everything in it, here are three very simple ways that you may be sabotaging your own happiness without even knowing it.
Tomorrow – March 20th – is the International Day of Happiness, and with all the happiness I’ve acquired and built for myself over the last few years, there’s no way I could let this day pass by without writing a post about it. As someone who once thought life was awful, unbearable, and not worth living, but is now head over heels in love with living and is so grateful to wake up every day, happiness and positivity is something that I love talking about because I know it is achievable.
This post is all about perspective, and how a simple change to the way you think can drastically affect how you feel about life and the world around you. Sometimes it really is the littlest things that can create the biggest changes, so here a few simple ways to try and turn a negative situation around ✨
