Reasons to be happy #2

I previously said last week, I was going to make this a weekly thing. 

"Being happy doesn't mean that everything is perfect. It means you've decided to look beyond the imperfections"

I can't remember where I read that quote. Although It did make me think, at the beginning of 2014 I set myself some goals for the year ahead. One of them being 'try to embrace new things and be more positive/happy'. That, in turn, inspired me to write this blog post. I'm always overlooking the positive things in my life to focus on the negative. Reflecting on things that make you smile, or make you happy. 

I'm so lucky to have found my soul mate, I know some people spend a lifetime searching for there's. Sometimes I do take him for granted, I forget how much I really do depend on him, emotionally more than anything. Sam knows every bad thing that's ever happened to me, or I've ever done. Yet he still loves me, and he's still there for me every day.

People always say, how do you know when your in love? Honestly, you just know! Everything feels right when I'm with him. I feel safe, loved, and secure. I'm content, I never look for more in a person. I can have a complete veg out, on the sofa, watching rubbish television, with my pj's on, no make up hair tied back. Without worrying and that's when he loves me the most. I tell him I love him - which I do, from the bottom of my heart, but those three words don't feel like they express how I feel.

Sam stood by me through my worst, when I was really down in life, he picked me up and helped me turn my life around. For that I will never be able to thank him enough, I could spend all day telling you how much he means to me, but then you would just think I'm being soppy. He's my reason to be happy, the reason I wake up in the morning with a smile on my face. 

Good weather
It seems like an odd thing to be happy about, but this week it's been really sunny. When the sun is shining through your curtains, you automatically wake up in a better mood. You want to go out, you have more energy, more motivation. I always find that when it rains, I feel like I'm confined to the house. You don't really want to go out to get absolutely soaking wet. 

Being Creative
There is nothing I love more, then going out and taking photographs. Then later bringing them home, to get inspiration for blog posts, or sketches, maybe even painting. It's also another reason I love blogging, It's nice to have my own little space on the internet, to make different headers if I please, to put my life rambles, or even just post a picture if I feel like it. Being outdoors this week, gave me a lot of new inspiration, I'm now bursting with ideas.
