Happiness....

Lately I have been doing a lot of thinking... what really makes me happy, smile, feel good? What can I change so that I am happy more often? Stress has been one constant lately and I hate it. I know as we get older we change, life changes, our responsibility changes. I miss being the happy caring person I used to be. I hate that stress weighs me down. I miss the laughs, smiles, innocence of life. I miss finding happiness out the small things in life. I need to find a way to have happiness be something that is a constant not a every now and then state.

Sorry don't mean to be a drag today this is just something that has been on my mind almost constantly recently. Any suggestions?

  1. Life isn't easy and it does get harder as you get older. Life was so easy has a kid. No worries at all. I think you might need a break -maybe sometime away. :))) I am going to do a post about this soon but I made myself a JOY JOURNAL. Every night I write down three things that have brought me joy that day.

  2. I'm sorry you're feeling down lately. It is definitely not a fun feeling to have a bunch of weight on your shoulders and it being hard to find what makes you happy. I hope that you find joy!! I like the idea of the above commenter to start a joy journal... I might even do that myself!

  3. Thinking of you friend, hope you find your "happy" again. I find that the gym makes me happy and gives me a rush and I feel better after just an hour of working out :-)

  4. I can definitely relate, sometimes you can't even help the amount of stress your dealing with. I find myself missing those days when my stress was so ridiculous its comical.

  5. "being happy" is really difficult to grasp as we get older. I accomplish it through just making myself "be" it... I have days in the dumps, but I actively pursue things that are good for me (exercise, fun movies, etc) and throw out what's not (junk food, bad friends, etc.)

  6. Every morning, I wake up, pray, and thank God for all He has given me. I read my Bible. I listen to Christian music. You would be amazed at what this does. It's a heart thing. Jesus is our joy. I feel like a different person than a few months ago :)

This is the random everyday of my life. I live in a small town in VA with the husband and 2 furbabbies (Bo the dog and Toby the cat). I love makeup, reading, country music, Scentsy pinterest, blogging, and spending time with my family.
