Pick Me Up Fridays – What is Happiness to You?

It’s Pick Me Up Friday once again and today I thought I would put out some random thoughts on happiness and hopefully, get input from my lovely readers.

It’s kind of strange when you think about what happiness is right because it’s such a subjective thing. It can change for you in a second or be something you have secretly wanted your entire life. The thing with happiness is that it’s not one of those things that you “know” is happening to you in the moment. I think true happiness can be fleeting as well, something that comes and goes within your life cycle.

I guess for me, happiness is a few things but the biggest thing for me is life balance. Having balance in my life is one of the most important aspects of how I live and want to continue living my life which means that I have the freedom to look after my disabled parent and my partner who is a diabetic. These two things are my top priority – keeping both of them safe and loved and cared for. That is what truly brings me happiness today.

But that is the thing, happiness changes with your life as well, the older you get, the more introspective and self-aware you become. And what you thought was happiness 10 years ago may not be the same thing for you when you’re older and more mature.

So I would love to know what my readers think about happiness in their lives – what it represents for you and what you think true happiness is. It’s not as easy as you may think to pinpoint but if you can, I’d love to know!

Stay safe my readers, wear your masks, look after each other and I’ll catch you in tomorrow’s post but hopefully, in the comments!

      1. I start the online training part of the driving test tomorrow, I’m both excited and scared. Onwards and upwards as they say. Thank you for asking Julie. I like to keep happiness simple, makes it easier to achieve.

  1. Hi Julie, with the craziness of the times I haven’t really thought about or pursued happiness. I think I’m just happy if I can get my posts out each weekend, chat with all of you and do a bit of designing. The rest is survival, but we will come out of this situation on the other side, the Force willing. I just hope folks will realise what has happened here and treat each other a bit better in the future.

    1. I think this is the most important time to think about what keeps us in a positive frame of mind. I think that is very important for everyone to treat themselves well while they’re caring about their significant others and family and friends 🙂 I don’t think happiness can be pursued as such but I do think what we consider happiness to be is important if we are ever going to truly experience what it can bring into our lives 🙂

  2. Happiness is having my health, and being able to do the things I want to do. Am pretty easy to please, really. I’m glad I’ve been able to slowly wean myself from gaining happiness through materials. Thanks for this, Julie!
