Five Things That Make Me Happy

Five things that make me happy. Hello everyone, I hope you are well. In today’s post, I will be sharing a reflection on the five things that makes me happy. We all have the things that make us happy. It could be material things, it could be doing things for other people and expecting nothing in return, or it could just be within you.

Five Things That Make Me Happy

Family

I never really valued family until I had my daughter. Family is essential and should be the no. 1 priority. Now, I understand some families don’t get along; however, no matter how far you go or what you do to separate from them, a strong bond will always draw you back. It could be a childhood memory, the time a family member supported you during hard times, made you laugh so hard that you started crying, or even that beautiful smile your grandma had. Without family, you belong nowhere. Life is hard and short, as well as it is precious. It would help if you had your family.

Peace

Trust me; there is nothing better than having peace in your life. Once upon a time, my whole life was filled with so much negative energy surrounding me. There were a lot of blaming, complaining, arguments etc. I thought there was no way out. Sometimes at night, I could not repeatedly sleep because of the echoes of voices in my head. Looking back to childhood dreams and anything that represented me for who I am was my way of finding peace. Finding peace is hard, but it isn’t a better feeling. When you finally find it

Surrounding Myself With Positive People

I have learnt that you do not have to have ‘friends’. Sometimes it’s better not to connect emotionally with ‘strangers’ and then call them your friends. Sometimes it’s better to have a group of people from different activities who share the same interest with you (or not the same claim)and not have a connection with them. These people have their own life to live. Sometimes a phone call that lasts 10 mins to check up on you and make you smile and laugh is better than an hour-long call with different emotions.

Dreaming

I don’t know about you, but I dream all the time. I could sit on the sofa and pretend I am watching the t.v, but my mind is busy in a different world. Sometimes I could be watching a show or reading a book and imagine myself in it. We all have other dreams. Some sad, some joyful, some romantic. It does not matter what you dream about, as long as you can place it into your life and make it come true. If it’s a sad dream, you will find a way to prevent it from coming true. However, do not worry if you can not stop it, as it could mean you are expecting it. Dreaming helps keep the brain healthy. It also helps create a clear picture of where you are and what to do next.

Travelling

I love to travel when I can. If I could travel the world for free and feel safe, I would be the happiest human being alive. Sadly the truth is nothing comes free (except love). Everything else comes with a price. However, with proper planning and savings, anything is possible. I have travelled to many cities in the U.K but never gone further than my motherland – Nigeria.

Travelling makes you count your blessings, see things from a different preservative and also helps you recharge.

What makes you happy?

I hope you enjoyed that.
