I have spent the last couple of weeks pondering happiness. And by happiness I mean that perfect feeling of contentment when you just know everything sits right in your world.
I do not have any rules to live by. Just like anyone else I bumble along trying to do my best. Social media has lots of steps to happiness…. most of them saying the same thing.
Here are the things that make me happy.
My partner in crime, aka Gman or Graham if we are getting formal. He really does make me happy. We are struggling at the moment to put 2 kidlets through good schools, but he always makes it OK. He stands beside me, quietly I might add, and gently nudges me back into the game of life. Being with my true love makes me happy. Waking up to someone that accepts me in all my chaoticness, this is pure happiness. And as you can imagine – the crazy red haired lady can be chaotic.
My kids make me happy. I was told once I could not have any and now I have 2 of them. They both ground me and help me to understand who I am. Last night I had a meltdown, finally falling to bits over the weight I have gained. Both came along and said to me they loved me for me. Pretty cool huh? My own cheer squad when things get tough. Hayley and Jamie make me happy. How astounding that I had my hand in creating two amazing humans.
My best friend makes me happy. We have been friends for over 33 years. Our kids are family. She is that one other person who makes everything OK. We have shared much of life’s ups and downs including both losing our Dads. But she just seems to be there. I would also say she rocks the job as a second mumma to my kids. Hanging out with her makes me happy
My home makes me happy. As you can imagine it is a little crazy. But I can come home after a long night gigging and just love that I walk in. It’s warm and filled with family.
My Music makes me happy. It runs through my veins. I love my music passionately.
I guess the main rule for happiness for me is to surround yourself with love – from family and friends, in your home, in the things you are passionate about. Love yourself and everything you bring to this world. How then can you go wrong?????
Here is to all of us leading happy lives.
Namaste lovelies until next time
