If you ask me what I want from life, my answer will always be 'to be happy'. 

I didn't realise the importance of happiness until someone once asked me 'hey, what makes you happy?' & I didn't have a clue. We spend so much time with peers and friends, or scrolling through Instagram & comparing our lives to everyone else's, that we sometimes forget to look within ourselves. 

For stability, growth and wellbeing, its important that we all know what makes us happy - because thats what life's about.

From teeny tiny silly things, to hopes and plans for the future, do more of the things that make you smile. What fuels you? What motivates you? What makes you wanna get your butt out of bed in the morning?

I love helping people, putting outfits together, seeing my baby cousins smile, dipping biscuits into tea, going to dinner with my friends, duvet days, ticking things off my to do list, walking along a beautiful beach, listening to music.. the list goes on. 

Although we can't be happy all the time, we are only human after all, but its fulfilling and empowering to do things everyday that make us feel good. If you're having a bad day, write down how you feel and then work on how to improve things. Take a little control because you are your number one. 

Learn to say no to situations that make you sad and get rid of people who don't have your best interests at heart. Get outside and see what the world can offer you & also, what you can offer the world.

Do more of what makes you happy and you'll be happier.
