Everyone Wants Happiness But Not All Of Us Know How To Get It

Everyone Wants Happiness But Not All Of Us Know How To Get It

Come on, I know you need this talk.

The one thing everyone wants is happiness. Whether we know it or not, we are always looking for it. Whether it’s in money, or a job, or a person, happiness is the main goal. But, how do we find it? And will we know when we have it?

The thing about happiness is that you can either wait for it to come to you, or you could sprint towards it and never stop. True happiness isn’t ever anything material, because material things can be taken and destroyed and be gone forever. No, happiness is a feeling. I have found happiness through working on myself. Through positive thinking and trying my hardest to do what’s best for my mental health and my body. Some people find happiness through joining clubs or volunteering, or the hardest of them yet, letting go.

Letting go is arguably the number one thing in the way of happiness. Letting go of old feelings, memories, material things, or anything that is dragging you down is a large step in the direction of happiness. Guaranteed. Don’t let yourself stay stuck in the past and wondering why. You deserve to be happy. In fact, everyone deserves to be happy. So, don’t wish bad on those that may have hurt you and gotten in the way of your happiness. You won’t be truly happy if you do.

We know that we have happiness when we fall asleep at night with that warm feeling hugging us. When we wake up and want to do whatever we had planned that day. Happiness sometimes takes a whole lot of effort, and that’s okay.

Something important to note is that happiness can also be accompanied by sadness or hurting. Just because you aren’t 100% that day or week, it doesn’t mean that your happiness isn’t there. We’re all always works in progress.

Happiness. Let it in.

Dreading This Day All About Love

Valentines day blues


I have never enjoyed Valentine's Day.

Even if when I was in a relationship it was just an awkward day of "hey I love you, give me gifts and lets make out." But this year, I am just not feeling this thing at all. Since the relationship ended last June I have just been dreading the time when February came, because you know that on the 14th you are going to see all these love post and all us singles are like "welp this is just not my day.", and honestly you feel defeated. I personally asked other singles friends (like the three I have) if they wanted to come and watch Netflix with me and dread the day, but sadly they either had school or work. So here is my plan of getting though this day of love:


Yes Netflix how else am I supposed to get through this day? Usually I have Greys Anatomy playing all the time but that has love in it, and I am not in the mood for that. My plan is to watch all the crime shows I can because watching TV crime series or documentary about serial killers just seems perfect for the 14th.



Yes sleeping. I don't have anywhere I need to be why not catch up on some zzz's


Yes I am going to eat my feelings with chocolate because why not? if I could I would get a giant slice of cake and live off that on the 14th but sadly I am stuck with the normal Heresy's chocolate and Reeses which will do their job.


me :)

This is my wonderful cat Kimber and she will be my partner in crime on the 14th. She will sleep, snuggle, cuddle, all day with me because I need that moral support of my fluffy cat.



If I am able to fit reading a book into my schedule of everything listed above then reading will go into that open spot. I always loved reading but with school it is hard to find the time to read for enjoyment. so this day will be the perfect day.

This is my plan for the 14th of February and hopefully this will help me get though this dreadful day. And if you are also single try this out :)
