All I want now is happiness for you and me

Carnations


I sort of have two modes.

Happy carefree girl, and negative depressed downer.
(Or good-brain bad-brain, for those of you who remember that comedic revelation from college. :P)

I mean, obviously a lot of the time I'm somewhere in between, but often I tend to go to one extreme or the other. Does that make me a manic depressive? Maybe. I'm no doctor or anything.

But the point is, when I get in the negative downer stage, I can go from being really down to straight up sobbing and loosing my shiz, which ain't good for me, my poor hubby, I mean, that ain't good for nobody.

I can fall into that pit of dispair, or I can try to find something inspirational, pick myself up out of it, and be the happy carefree girl I wish I was 24/7.

Today I found inspiration in a blog post, and in hearing a Coldplay song pop up on the radio. Yeah, I like Coldplay. And I'm not sorry about it! :P

Basically my point is, you gotta focus on the good things. I mean, as far as I can tell in my near 30 years on this planet, there's always gonna be the bad, stressful stuff that makes you feel like garbage, nothing is ever gonna be perfect, the difference is how you react to it. Right?

I've made posts like this before. And I probably will again. Because I think it's important to not focus on the negative, but on the uplifting things.

So spread the love. What are some things that make and keep your happy? Cheer you up when you're down?

We can all help each other to be happiness!

All I want now 
is happiness 
for you and me

Today's motto: Be happiness.

  1. Hey Camille, Sorry to hear you've been down, but I'm so glad to see that Ryan's post helped inspire you. He's helpful that way for me, too.

    Hopefully, we can get together soon and do something fun to cheer you up!
