I've been thinking a lot recently about what it is to be happy.
There are certain points in my week where I feel like I have an almost perfect life & I wouldn't wish to change one thing, merely 24 hours i'll despise my life and wish to be anybody else other than myself.
With my Nan's passing, I've been thinking about life a lot recently. Especially the fragility of it.
I think that, i'm lucky. I'm lucky to have a family that love me - because they can't support me financially I appreciate them more for the little things they do, the repair shop they'll call for me or the length searches for an item I'm after. I have a roof over my head and a cat that sometimes loves me. I have James to look after me and a job.
So why do I always want more?
I think its out human nature, to want a holiday or a designer bag. I think that we always want more than we have and can never quite reach that "perfect life" -Simply because there are no such thing as the perfect life.
But all we can do is try, I work two jobs and a degree so that I can aim for a better life when I graduate,
I'm on that road to happiness and that's where I want to be.
Follow your heart, aim for the career you want, the house you want, that new bag.
Aim to get on this road to happiness, you never know... Maybe one day we'll reach it!
SO what I say is, lets be grateful for what we have today.
Lets be grateful because so many people suffer so much more than we do.
& for that road to happiness we need to get ourselves on.
