I’m back, with another feeling inspired post, yay! It has been a while….
Anyway, I’m obsessed with little reasons to smile. For those of you that don’t know, it’s a tumblr account where people submit things that make them happy and the account owners create cute little images and woooooow. My happy place.
“But the most beautiful things in life are not just things. They’re people, and places, memories and pictures. They’re feelings and moments and smiles and laughter”
Here are 15 of my favourites:
taking a relaxing bath when you’re stressed
I think it’s super important to find things that make you smile, and to prioritize them over the bad. If you can’t find things to make you happy, create them. After all, it’s in the little things, right?
What makes you smile?
When purpose is a ‘thing’
I’ve seen so many posts on this in recent months, while trying to decide what I’m going to be doing for the rest of my life. I’ve read posts talking about how you need to find what you love, and then find a career that makes use of it… But once you’ve achieved your purpose, what more is there for you to do? You could basically just die now.
I don’t want that. So I’ve change my mindset. Purpose is now less about what I’m doing with my life, and more about how I’m doing it.
Putting my 100% into everything I do is so much better, I’m quite literally pouring my heart out. Our purpose is inside of us – in the way we give ourselves fully to a task.
So if you’re struggling with your purpose listen your heart’s desires, ask yourself – what is my heart wanting me to do next, and then do it wholeheartedly. Keep listening to your heart, and what it wants – because when your heart & soul are in the right place, you’ll find your life filled with colour.
Purpose is less about what you’re doing, and more about how you’re doing it.
I’ve always wanted a tattoo. Something small & dainty with meaning to me. Ankle tattoos fascinate me; all of the ones I have seen so far are beautiful and gorgeous. Which of the below is your favourite?
I love this: it reminds me of the quote “Have courage and be kind”. In my day to day life, I find myself in so many situations where I need to be brave and have courage.
This next tattoo – an anchor – reminds me to never sink. It’s free floating & not attached to anything & that’s where I envision myself in a few years time – free, independent & not tied down to any one thing. I want to be able to embrace my freedom.
Elephants are amazing creatures. They live in herds & are so close to the other members of their herd that they actually mourn when one dies. The mothers are so caring & protective of their young & for animals of their size they have a wonderful way of moving and just arghhhhhhh. Anyway, I love this tattoo because it represents my love of the wild & wild animals.
Which is your favourite? Are there any other ideas you’d suggest? If you could choose a symbol to have tattooed, what would it be and what would it represent?
