What makes you happy?

What makes you happy? 

I have learned that in life, it doesn’t matter what it is, you should do what makes you happy. 

I went to the Goodwill today and there was the most ugly purse. It had red picnic blanket straps, a green yarn fringe around the top, and the base was a fabric that had apples all over it. I know for a fact that it is not a pretty purse, but it made me smile. So I bought it. I know that people will think it is ugly or silly. I used to live my life trying to gain the praise and approval of people, but I know now it doesn’t matter what they think. Honestly, I don’t give a single fuck what they think. I’d rather be surrounded by colors and patterns that make me smile or turn my head than ones that are deemed acceptable for me to have. 

What makes you smile? What is something that makes you happy or excited?

A lot of time people think I am odd or judge me because I get excited over everything. Like everything! I get excited when the telephone rings. I get excited when I get to go somewhere. It doesn’t matter how often that phone rings… each time it is someone new to talk to, something new to say, some new way to provide a person with what they need. 

I think they are just jealous. There is nothing better than feeling happy or excited. When you let the excitement leave your life you miss out on a lot of things. 

So just for tomorrow, spend the entire day with only the choices that make YOU happy. Whether it is wearing a shirt you love, but others think is too loud or doesn’t go with your skin tone. Eating the food that makes your breath stink. Listening to your music too loud in the car. Whatever makes your soul feel alive.

Here’s a popular song to be your anthem!


Lots of love,
