10 Reasons to Be Happy

  1. The sky. It’s a constant show, it changes from light to dark, clear to foggy. The elements play in it. It can be scary, it can be sunny, it can make or break a day, but it always changes, and there is always a calm after the storm. Just like our minds, the sky is influenced, we just need to sit out the storm, make the best of it, get out the candles, blankets and crayons and wait for the sun to shine.
  2. Food. Yes sometimes life can be so sad and grim that even the comfort of food is lost on us. But to be honest, the thought of food is sometimes enough to give me enough hope in the day. Making food can be such a positive and fun thing to do… plus there’s always a treat at the end, unless your a shit cook of course, in that case maybe just order a takeaway?
  3. FILMS. Oh my goodness, whats more enthralling than getting lost in the world of films. You can go anywhere. My personal faves are Harry Potters, Shrek’s and i always have time for ‘The Holiday’.
  4. There’s always this moment. This moment now, you are reading this, here we both are connected in pixel time. Isn’t it magic? Breath and look around, go for a walk or listen to some music, we are here!
  5. Because you are trying. That is enough reason to be happy. if you are reading this, if you are feeling unhappy, there is a reason, and you are obviously trying your very best to work on it, isn’t that a reason to be happy? You care. You feel. And mate, you can.
  6. We can dream. Wow. How amazing, when you really think about it, is dreaming? As odd, scary or fun your dream is, it’s like a little magic movie inside your head. I can’t believe we evolved into creatures, from little specs of whatever we were before monkeys, that can have such vivid images in our minds.
  7. One day the sun might shine, you might go for a walk in the wild and smell the flowers, blow dandelions and watch the seeds scatter. You might have a BBQ, or a picnic and old fashioned lemonade. You might listen to Otis Redding and watch the clouds in the sky pass over the sun, giving you moments of cool breeze.
  8. Christmas. Winter. Snow. Cosying up. Even memories of it, the season where their is an excuse for saying how you feel, for getting drunk at office parties and kissing Scott from floor 2. Magic exists at Christmas.
  9. Being born. Already we are blessed to be that lucky little egg that just so happened to get born-ed instead of the others. How lucky are we man? We are the chosen egg! We get to experience life, no matter what shape, flavour, smell our life is, know we have the power to change it, and mostly that we can create it ourselves. We are the strong eggs guys, don’t ever forget it.
  10. LOVE. I am lucky to have a family that loves me, so so lucky, i wish it for everyone. If you are loved, wow, how amazing is it that people care so much about you that they just want to protect you and make you happy? If you don’t feel loved. I love you. You have the capacity to love, and i wish for you that you find it. Please don’t lose hope, you are loveable. Love is just lush isn’t it.
