The title of my blog is called True Bliss, which means true happiness.
I believe taking the time to stop and look at all the little things that made you smile or just generally happy, is valuable. Everyone is so caught up in the moment, that sometimes we don’t give ourselves the chance to reflect back on those acts of happiness.
This past week I gave myself the challenge to write down anything/anyone who made me smile or just generally happy. This gave me the chance to focus on that specific moment of happiness and to understand why it made me happy.
1. My Grandparents Came Home from Vacation
If you know me personally, you’ll know just how close I am to my grandparents. I visit them as much as I can and love being in their company. So when they came home from their vacation, you could say that it definitely put a smile on my face.
2. Surprise Visit From A Special Somebody
Early last week while at work, I got a surprise visit from a special somebody. (Yes, this person is going to remain anonymous-sorry) They brought myself and a coworker our afternoon caffeine rush and we got to do some catching up. Needless to say, that definitely made me happy.
3. Got Myself Organized
Again, if you know me personally, you know I have the constant need to be organized. I took some time during my day off to do some mental/physical organizing. You could say it was a little bit of ‘spring cleaning’ that was in desperate need.
4. Found A Hair Product That I Cannot Live Without
I have very curly hair and if you are someone who also has curly hair you know the struggle. Living with curly hair is dealing with the constant battle of Frizz. Well, months ago I finally found a product that really works for my hair. I was in need of a new bottle and when I went to go purchase a new one, there was 0 on the shelf. So, I had a little bit of a freak out as I thought that maybe discontinued it. I checked back a few days later and the shelf had been restocked. (Yes!) My hair was really thankful for this one.
5. Finished Another Book
To me reading is an outlet, where I can escape my mind and give myself a break. I set a goal for myself earlier this year to read 15 books by the end of 2017. This past week I was able to finish my 8th book of the year, which made me very happy. If you haven’t already read my post on “Book Challenge 2017” I will link it below for you to check out!
6. Watched A Childhood Movie
Growing up I was a total Disney child lunatic. Especially, when it came time to watch all the Disney princesses movies. One of my best friends and I went out and saw the remake of Beauty & The Beast and it was amazing! I highly recommend it if you haven’t already saw it.
I really believe that it’s the little, simplest things that make me happy in life. I challenge you to give this a try this week or comment below what made you happy last week!
