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.
