I am so excited about this week’s photo challenge (again I may be a little late in getting this out but I think it’s still this week’s)! Anyway, this week’s challenge is Happy! All about things that make you happy! Yay! Since I’m such a sickeningly happy person, of course I couldn’t just pick one thing (no surprise there):
DISCLAIMER: The things that make me Happy are not only limited to the ones in this image! 🙂
First, all the pictures show one theme that makes me really happy: Fall! It’s my favorite season and I just love the changing colors!
The top right picture is one of my husband and I this past weekend. We celebrated our One Year Wedding Anniversary and that makes me Happy!
Seeing unexpected wildlife makes me Happy (see Turkey!)
This last picture, the wedding one, also makes me Happy. Seeing two people, who are perfect for each other, make this kind of a commitment to each other, and in such a beautiful way-makes me SUPER Happy!
There are so many other things that make me Happy: my family, sunny days, animals, coconut ice cream, pictures, home videos, campfires….the list could go on and on (like I said ‘I’m a sickeningly happy person’).
What makes you happy?!
So I’ve been on a bit of a quote kick recently and wanted to share some that I found that really resonated with me. (I found them all on Pinterest).
Things that I have seen in others that have made me change myself: complaining (actually straight up bitching), negativity, being judgmental, talking bad about others. Learning from others has actually helped me be a better person…at least that’s what I hope.
Nothing is perfect but yet it is.
People often say to me “I could never do that” but the truth is, you can. It’s easy once you know what you want and believe in.
It’s so funny to think about this. I know I’m still pretty young but it’s amazing how much life has passed and how much I still have to look forward to.
These last two quotes represent me the most. I feel that it’s not good to dwell on the negatives; it’s not going to change anything, so why not deal with it and move on (and I’m talking about those little bumps along the road). Life is about dealing with issues as they present themselves. Not everything can be great 100% of the time, but the true test is how you handle it.
So Smile, Love, and Laugh.
What are your favorite quotes? Are there ones that help get you through the tough times or ones that inspire you?
