Back to finding your happiness after family trauma

Back to Finding your happiness

First you have to make your own happiness a priority.

Your happiness matters. We tend to put other people's happiness before our own and make excuses for the reasons why we neglect our needs.

If you don't value your own happiness then no one else will. It is NECESSARY to look out for your own needs and you can still care about your friends and family. If you are happy, you are more likely to spread happiness and care for those around you.

Think about what makes you happy.

Now what would make me extremely happy would be to wake late, drink a cocktail with lunch while , spending the day sunbathing somewhere on a cool sunny and 75 degree and beautiful beach. That's not realistic at this point in my life as I think my toddler would have something to say about it!

But what realistically makes me happy is a hot shower, sweet coffee, watching a comedy, talking to a good friend, ice cold iced sweet tea, cuddling with my three dogs and four year old in the same chair, a good time with get’s the small achievable things..

There are a LOT of things that make me happy that cost little or nothing and those things I make time for. It's easy to neglect your own desires but so important that you don't.

What’s next?? Spend time with people that make you more in my next post
