Nurture Thursday – Happiness

Nurture Thursday – Happiness

I think everyone knows within themselves when they are happy. I believe when you are happy, you are not spiteful or mean. You can’t be. When you are happy, you don’t want to lose that, so you’re not going to do crass and mean spirited things. I believe when you are truly happy, you want to spread it around. Which is why I do believe at the moment, there are a lot of unhappy people. The Right are unhappy, because they are finding their bigoted and racist ways are under threat. They can’t be who they are. Even though they are horrible, they think they can be who they are anymore. Then you’ve got the Left, who are unhappy, because they are not being listened too. By those who were chosen to listen to them.

Not only that but those who are supposed to listen to them, are now trying to make them the “criminals”.

When are you happy?

Have you ever had a moment with someone, or they’ve said one line. And it’s made you do a whole 180 with them? You look at them differently, you realise how toxic they are? Now have you been just as shock when someone has not had a problem with that person has said. I just had this happen recently, where one friend pretty much insulted another to their face and this person liked the comment made?

It did make me wonder when people are truly happy, do they allow people to speak to them like that? One of the reasons I never got unhappy about my ex-friends accusations, was because I had started to distance myself enough for me to realise how good I had it without them.

Have you ever had a situation when you are so happy with your life that it doesn’t matter when someone insults you? Or tried to hurt you?

Post 2 quotes for the dedicated Topic of the Day, “Happiness”

Unicron

Sometimes the things that make me happiest, are not quotes about happiness, necessarily. This one makes me grin every single time.

Dalai-Lama Happiness

Not only do I love the Dalai Lama, but I also absolutely agree with this quote. Suffering from anxiety, a lot of the times I have recognised that it is my own head. I have ways to get myself back together again. So sometimes yes, it is up to us and our actions to ‘get happy’. The moment you stop relying on others to make you happy. It’s freeing! It’s still nice to have people who can make you happy, but do it for yourself first.

Secret to Happiness? – Nurture Thursday

Nurt Thursday – Secret to Happiness

I wanted to started this one with saying that I believe that people individually have their own secrets to happiness and I would love to hear what it is. If you feel comfortable to share ❤

I think though a lot of us can agree that the secret to happiness comes from within, rather than something outer. (Although, if we won the lottery, that would help too).

QUESTIONS:

If Heaven exists, what would you like to hear God say when you arrive at the Pearly Gates?  If you don’t think Heaven nor God exists, you might want answer by saying something outrageous, just for fun!

“You did good kid, you did good” If God calls me a pig though, I will slap him,lol

What do you regard as the lowest depth of misery?

Is it too mean to say being in Trumps “circle”,lol

What do you think about when you’re alone in your car?

I’m usually thinking what I’m doing in the car. By that, I mean depending on where I’m going I’ll be thinking things like “Do I need to pop in anywhere else on the way.” “Did I hear about roadworks, or crashes I need to be aware of?” or on the way back, it might be more “Well that day was long”. Other than that, I usually just listen to the radio or some music.

How would you rate your memory? 

At the moment it’s not fantastic. However I did find out recently that I have extremely low Vitamin D, which can make you feel fatigued, which is what I’ve been feeling like recently. I am sure that feeling sleepy, not much goes into the brain. So hopefully with the medicine I’ve received, that will improve my memory as well as my Vit D levels!

And lastly:

What’s one song that always cheers you up, no matter how blue you’re feeling?

It honestly feels like a cliche to say this song, and I can’t even remember what I used to listen too before to cheer me up. I think it was either a Beatles (here comes the sun, pops into my mind) or Monkees song (probably daydream believer).

Do you prefer eating foods with nuts or no nuts?

It honestly depends on what I’m eating them with. Some things taste better and sometimes they make no sense!

Do you sleep with your closet doors open or closed?

They are usually closed, but it’s not because I’m afraid of some boogie monster or anything. They are just usually closed…Also sometimes it hides the mess,lol.

Are you usually late, early, or right on time?

I always makes sure that I am at least 5-10 minutes early. It gives you time to get your bearings. Especially in a new place, if you are unsure of where things are. It gives you a couple of minutes to find people and places. I used to have a friend who was ALWAYS late for our gatherings and I find that so disrespectful and rude! We used to have always wait before we could order.It got to the point where we’d lie about the time we were meeting, why should we have to do that? Surprisingly she was never late for work, just us.

What did you appreciate or what made you smile this past week?  Feel free to use a quote, a photo, a story, or even a combination. 

I am smiling because I have survived this week by myself. I haven’t been by myself for a night since my massive panic attack. I was truly terrified to spending, pretty much, a week by myself. The first couple of days were tough, but then we had this gorgeous beautiful sunny day and it just made me feel so better and then I’ve been great ever since.

Money doesn’t equal happiness

If you haven’t heard or don’t know who James Packer is (I am sure that most of probably have some idea who he is). James Packer is a very rich…VERY…rich businessman and investor. You might know him most recently from his engagement to Mariah Carey.

Recently though he decided to resign his positions because of mental health issues.

I’m sure you’ve all heard about Justin Bieber and Hailey (Hayly?) Baldwin engagement. Only a couple of months after they broke up with their respective partners. Also known as “serial daters” Does anyone REALLY believe in their love? Also #selenaisfreeparty (I think she’s already had that party).

It just went to show me that you can all the money and all the resources at your feet. Neither does money give you happiness or love. I think the kindest thing James Packer has every done for others is too resign, or take leave. It shows to a lot more people that mental health can affect anyone no matter the circumstances. You can everything and still need help. More self love.

A bit too heavy for the morning?

Don’t Worry be Happy

A couple of weeks ago I had the weirdest day I had had in such a long time. I was going for my L’s Theory test and the first thing that happened was I bumped into someone from high school and we had a chat about my ex friends from high school and that situation. Then I went and did the test and went across the road to the local mall and walked pass this girl that has never liked me and she recently unfriended me on Facebook. (I don’t know when she did it, but we both got tagged in something and that’s when I realised, because I don’t go to her page) Since I don’t have an issue with her, I smiled and she gave me the coldest shoulder (and no smile) I have ever received.

I had to laugh and shake my head…It’s ridiculous!

I’ve always had this feeling that she’s thought that there’s some sort of competition between us…and I just genuinely do not give a…

I don’t even understand it because all the guys in this group love her. She’s done these horrible things and they still love her, so that’s them, not me. I don’t like how she’s treated people (myself included) but it’s not like they don’t know what she’s done. Maybe it’s because I don’t worship her or something like that? Generally I don’t do that for anyone, not even with celebrity. I’ve never understood that frame of mind.

Anyways, I digress,

I laughed and shook my head because it made me realise something. I don’t have time or the mental space to worry about people’s make believe problems anymore. How privileged she should feel that someone who doesn’t really care about her…Doesn’t care about her, but everyone else still loves her…I would LOVE to have those problems!

I don’t hate Johnny Depp

I don’t know if you’ve all seen the latest interview with Johnny Depp. I’m all over the place with it. The interview itself was interesting, but I truly wished he would have taken more responsibility for his actions. I am tired of hearing he didn’t hit Amber in the video, so it’s not abuse. There are other forms of abuse.

Time to get personal here.

My father has never hit me, he spanked me a couple of times when I was younger, but nothing that I’d call abusive. HOWEVER, he is an alcoholic and oh my goodness the things names and text messages I’ve received over the years. If someone else saw them, they’d punch him up or be in complete shock as to why I even still speak too him. Like Johnny, I don’t think my father is evil. He has had a hard life, but it’s not an excuse to take it out on me. Also like Johnny, I don’t think my Dad is happy himself. I don’t think he gets any pleasure out of the abuse he hurls at me.

I like Johnny Depp, I just know that he could be a LOT better if he took responsibility for his actions and what he is doing. If he’s stupid fans could STOP hating on other people, because they want Johnny to do better…They can’t possibly have read that interview and thought “There’s a happy guy!”. If Vanessa thought he was so wonderful, why leave him? Women just don’t leave great guys, we just don’t, lol.

It’s okay not too be perfect. I don’t hate Johnny Depp, I don’t think that he’s a bad guy. I think he’s a lost soul and needs some guidance instead of people telling him that he’s wonderful a perfect. It doesn’t mean though he can got off.
