Happiness (A Series – Part 1)

Happiness is something which, over the past 2-3 years, I have discovered the importance of and have also struggled with. From just a little bit to a lot.

The most important thing to me in my life is that I am happy.

All that matters to me, no matter what I’m doing with my life, is that I am content and making myself happy. Honestly, it’s really all that I’ve ever wanted. I want to wake up in the morning and automatically think “I am happy today”, no matter what my day involves.

As well as being the most important thing, it is always one of the very hardest things.
Of course, I am only young. And happiness isn’t in all areas of my life, of course it isn’t.
I am currently on a gap year, working part time, trying to get into a university.
I have my fair share of issues at home and with people I love the most.
I am not in any relationship or involved with anybody. (I’m good though, no worries there)
I’m still going through life trying to love and accept myself and make myself a better person.
I’m also trying to figure out my place in this world and the reason for me being on this planet, as I believe that everyone has a purpose.

Not being happy about certain things can leave people feeling sad and even depressed. I am most definitely one of those people. I find it an incredibly tricky task to find happiness at times in my life. When I am happy, I worry that it is only because of a temporary reason, like a night out, the weekend, seeing my friends etc. This is something which I will post more detail about in the future.

So many people are unhappy. I know the main reason why I am unhappy at this current point in my life, but I choose not to reveal it as I don’t want to step on any toes.

But, I also want to say that I think it’s ok not to be happy all the time. This too, I will elaborate on in the future.

This is something I feel is so important to address. We need happiness. I most definitely need happiness. I envy other people and their happiness. I look at them and realise that they are so grateful for everything. That’s what it is.

We need to look past the negative side of life, find the positive and realise that we are here, now, on this planet, which is a giant floating rock in the middle of an endless black space. There is so much to be happy about.

We just need to find it.

I’d like to end this post with a few videos that make me happy. Also, check out JEROME JARRE. On vine, Instagram, Twitter & YouTube. This guy is the happiness person I’ve ever seen and he has recently publically announced that he went through depression in the last year, but got through it.

Hope you’re well
