Happiness is…

Yes, I’m terrible… bla bla bla… I have good intentions, but have had a draining year and the blog wasn’t priority. Forgive me? 

Have recently tried to re wire the brain to find joy in the little things. Tonight it’s hanging on the couch with himself, having a (bottle of) wine or two, and getting shnugs from the fur baby. Couldn’t ask for more. Oh! Actually, an excuse to look at Chris Evans for an hour or two?! Civil war let’s be having ya! 

Happy new year yis pack of rides!! 
‘Til next time……

Mellow yellow

Recently I’ve been really drawn to the colour yellow, no idea why.

I just love the brightness of it, it always equals “happy” to me. It’s probably to do with our spring finally kicking in (although in comparison to the winter that some of ye had, we deffo got off easy here in Ireland) , the grand stretch in the evening (days being longer, if you’re wondering) and the fact that I don’t need 100 layers on me when I walk the dog in the mornings! All awesome, all spring time!

I’m not sure if I can pull off the colour yellow, would have to be a fairly strong & bright shade (without straying into the day-glo tones), and I would need to get cracking on the cocoa brown fake tan, if I’m to wear it, too.

There are some realisations that I’ve come to recently that have forced gently nudged me to wise up to the fact that life is short. I am not indestructible. This didn’t come about from one incident, this has been building in my mind for a while now & it has become my new philosophy/mantra/whatever. Life is short, enjoy it. I’m not saying to go out and spend all your money on crap, or to eat all the bad food ( ALL OF IT!) you can get your hands on. What I’m saying is that I’ve come to the realisation that sometimes doing what you want is good. But mainly it’s about telling your friends & family how much you love & appreciate them, making time for you – whether it’s sitting & listening to your favourite music, watching a beloved film, or going for a walk, or enjoying all that life has to offer.

I for one will be spending a lot more time with my parents and siblings – because they’re just plain awesome – & as much time with my friends as possible, doing things with himself now rather than in the future, jumping in puddles as much as I can, not giving a shit if my clothes get dirty coz I’m having silly fun (this doesn’t really bother me that much anyway) and just being happy in general. This is my philosophy, I’m not trying to tell anyone else what to do, but I will be doing what makes me happy as much as possible and making memories to make me smile when I can’t get away with shenanigans like this anymore.

So there.
