Falling in love with my life

To be able to live a happy life you have got to love your life. I have said this before about loving yourself. It doesn’t just happen overnight, you aren’t born with the attitude to love your life. You have to learn how to create the life you want. Two years ago I realised I wasn’t happy within my life , so I decided to make a change. I wanted to understand what made me happy and could I experience enjoyment in everything I did. I worked on myself for quite a while and trying to work out what made me happy and what I got a buzz off. After taking the time to reflect on how experiences made me feel I can now say I know myself and have a clear understanding of what I want.

Everyday may not be good, but there’s good in everyday.

At the start of this year I decided to start a gratitude journal and every morning I would write down 5 things that I felt grateful for. The main reason I wanted to do this is so I could appreciate the small things in my life. I think sometimes we don’t realise what we have until it’s taken away from us. Being in Greece made me so much more grateful for what I have in the UK. Being grateful makes you feel a whole lot happier and you can value every single person in your life.
For years and years I wasn’t happy within myself. From my looks, my body, my ambitions and my mind. However sometimes we live in a bubble and all we end up focusing on is the problems or what we think are problems. This then leads us to a very unhappy life, you can either go through life worrying about these things and making yourself unhappy or you can move on from it. I knew I had to accept the fact my toe nail wasn't going to grow back! Hahahah. It's so important to understand you don't need to change for anyone you are as you are. Accept yourself. For so long I was doing things just to make other people happy I was doing things just to make other people happy, always treading on egg shells. It wasn't until I learnt that it's my life so I have to do what makes me happy. If there is something I want to go and see or do I will do it. I knew from the age of 16 that I wanted to have my own business and help other people. I haven't let anyone stand in my way because when you let that happen it's a lot harder to succeed.

Putting my focus into the right things is so important! 
You can easily be distracted by new friendships, partners, breakups and fall outs. We waste so much energy worrying over the little things and don't put our energy and focus into what matters. You have to realise that those who are worth your time and energy will be the ones that make an effort with you, will give you a call to see how you are doing. Don't put your focus into negative situations , just remove yourself from them. You can't be happy if you are focusing on something that is draining the energy out of you.
In order to fall in love with your life you have to be able to be happy, I know sometimes it's not that easy but you just have to learn what makes you smile, what makes your eyes sparkle. It is different for everyone but you just know in yourself what energy you want to surround yourself with.
