This week I did something I’ve been meaning to do for ages. It wasn’t difficult and it wasn’t costly but it was one of those things that isn’t essential to living. Not working, not tidying, not grocery shopping. You know, on the would be nice list.
Except that’s where I realise now I was wrong. It was essential. Essential for my happiness. It has made me immeasurably happy.
I read an article the other day about things that make you happy at home and it really struck a chord and launched me into action.
Looking at photos makes me happy. It’s like the article points out, it’s not just about looking at a pretty image, it’s about looking and remembering a feeling and experiencing that happiness, joy, excitement, whatever, all over again.
So I’ve learnt a lesson this week to always prioritise happiness over groceries. Cheaper cheese for one week in exchange for a wall of happy every time!
The Photo Gallery theme this week is happy. Go get yourself a dose of happy by checking out the other posts.
