Happiness is key

We often hear people say ‘balance is key’, and I am guilty of charged for saying that phrase too! However, I think that the only way to have balance is to have happiness. After all, to be happy in life is the ultimate goal, in my opinion of course. Without happiness, what have you?

I know I have things that I genuinely enjoy, but I am still seeking overall happiness. I’m not sure if anyone ever really reaches the ability to enjoy life at every moment, but it’s not a bad thing to reach for. Just as with mostly everything else though, don’t let it get out of control – don’t allow the goal of reaching the ultimate place of happiness and joy with your life control it. In fact, don’t really think about it. Just do it. Just live, have fun, go out with friends, throw a party, run a marathon, go fishing, get a tattoo. Honestly, whatever floats your boat and puts a smile on ya face – don’t you want to show the world those pearly whites anyways 😉

I’m one to get caught up in the curveballs that life throws but you know what, not anymore. I’m sure I still will but I’m going to try my hardest to just live. Let go and not care. Move on from the negative and focus on what matters, living MY life how I want to live it. Doing the things that make ME happy.

Really though? SO TRUE.

Do me a favor, take a step back and ask yourself ‘what do I want out of my life’. Once you have that answer, ask yourself if you can achieve it without happiness.

What makes me happy? my friends, the beach, hiking, reading, baking, dancing, crossfit, lifting heavy items, jammin’ out, coffee, sunshine, rollercoasters, vacation, my tumblr obsessions, kayaking, blogging, photography and many more. senior picture

So not worth moping around in boredom and sorrow all day–I’d rather be having fun and being crazy! 😀 You keep on doing what you love girl, I love your positivity!!

    YES why do all the little things have to get in the way of happiness?! I love the Eleanor R quote, I feel like I pass up alot of things that I know would make me happy just because I’m scared of being judged/criticized or whatever else, and that does not make me happy whatsoever. Thanks for making me think girl!

    • Sarah / Aug 10 2011 12:34 am

      Of course, anytime! Gotta listen to your gut my dear 🙂
