Things that make me smile

In a previous post I mentioned that towards the end of last year I went through a period of feeling quite down and depressed. The last few months of the year proved to be quite stressful for me as I had a lot going on in my life and I did not feel myself at all which is really unlike me. For some reason I felt sad and alone, and I also felt guilty for feeling this way as there are people out there far worse off and less fortunate than me and I had no exact reason for why I was feeling this way. Normally I am the kind of person that doesn’t let things get on top of me or get me down – I am quite the opposite - I like to look on the bright side of life and turn negatives in to positives. I am that go-to friend that makes you feel better when you’re down and will cheer you up, and this is the way I like to be!

Any way I am back to my chirpy self now as decided to sort myself out and not let things get me down again – after all life is too short and I wanted to begin the new year as I mean to go on – positively! I decided to write a post on little things that make me happy, things that don’t have to cost a lot but that put a smile on my face! Sometimes it really is these little things that make a big difference. Next time you feel less perky than usual and need something to lift your mood, think of something that makes you happy and do it! Even better make a list and try to do a different thing each day. Share it with a friend smile and make them smile too… spread the love!
