There are many things that I have thought about blogging on the last few weeks but finding the time is just something else, during the week I don’t the chance because I either finish work late or I am at gym and by the time I get home I am just too tired and too lazy to bother. My weekends are spent having a blast, at some sort of sporting event, music concert/festival or floating around.
The first few months of 2014 have been amazing, that said there have also been a couple of challenging moments. Both on the personal and professional side.
People that know me well, and probably not even that well know that I am very bubbly and happy individual. It takes a lot to upset me or make me sad, I sometimes wonder if it’s even possible and even real that I am happy so much?! Yes I said it, and I know there will be a lot of *side eyed* glances at that because you cannot just be happy all the time. When I do get upset it usually doesn’t last very long, and I’ll tell you how I manage to get this right, because it’s no secret and it’s also not that difficult.
When I get angry, upset, sad, hurt or put into a position where I am in a negative frame of mind I make a very immediate and conscious decision to get over it, because why? Happiness.
Sometimes it’s not all that easy; my heart got a bit sore for a short while, it lasted for all of two weeks before I could get back to that happiness and sense of self security in myself again. After all, I am still human. I also need to start protecting my silly little romantic heart a bit better with my brain and strong exterior.
Occasionally I get pushed to an “almost breaking” point at work, but I always manage to pull myself towards myself when it comes to this part of my life, I have always been a very focused person when it comes to my career, and because of the industry I work in there is no compromise as to how you should treat people and the attitude you should have.
I love, furiously. There is no half hearted effort when it comes to this. And I recently discovered this part of myself; someone told me that it’s got to do with my “star sign”, being a Leo and all… I laugh, because I have no clue about that kind of thing. But if that be the case then I have a big lion heart and I will protect people I love 🙂
The best part of anything this year is that I continue to learn more about myself and I also realise that as I grow I am becoming a stronger individual.
So this article wasn’t really about true happiness, but I encounter a true happiness feeling for about 23 hours a day, the other hour is spent not thinking on a spinning bike or running so I can’t even tell you what I am feeling then, it is most likely happiness I am feeling anyway though 🙂
