Motivational Monday #5

I just want to make pretty things and get enough sleep.

The key to a happy life is to just be. Cups of tea, baking a cake, making your own organic soap, having an early night, cooking a good hearty meal, having a giggle with your friends, smiling so much that your cheeks hurt, planning an adventure, exploring on that adventure.

Life can be too gritty, disappointing, hard, dark and demanding sometimes so we must fill it with lovely, cosy, inspiring, pleasing and delightful things to balance it out. Let's all turn the television off, light some candles, wear a cosy jumper, put some soft music on and read a real feel-good book. Let's plan a great adventure for the new year, let's bake a cake, let's make life better. Let's just live.

Be free. Be alive. Be happy.

  1. Love this post. Just what I needed to read. I tend to be so hard on myself all the time. Being a mum of four (three of whom are ages five and under!), I always put everyone else before myself. Need to do everything that you suggest!

    1. It can be hard to see the positive sometimes when you're feeling a little down or it's been a long hard day at work- trust me I'm guilty of this. So you need some down time... I promise after a bit of chocolate and a warm cuppa tea in a bubble bath with some lovely music you will feel loads better. It honestly is the little things that can bring you out of that down mood.

      I hope you feel better soon x
