When I’m the happiest, is when everything in my life seems to be in perfect balance. I believe for myself that the first ingredient to obtain that balance, is the relationships I have with the people in my life. If I’m able to put myself second and care about the people around me more than I care about myself then everything seems to go so smooth. I also believe that happiness is an inside job. I don’t want to only rely on exterior things to measure my happiness, because it’s never enough. I find true bliss when I’m content with what’s going on in my life. This year that has definitely been a struggle and at times being content with what’s going on seems like such a lofty goal. So I’ve just had to constantly remind myself that in this very moment I’m exactly where I’m supposed to be, and that everything is going to be ok. Last but not least, I love going on a random adventure. There’s nothing better and more freeing to me than just some random trip with my fiancé. Just to be able to get out into nature, go on a hike, or go surfing. It doesn’t matter if it’s just for a day or if I’m lucky maybe even a week. That sense of adventure is special to me. It’s like my inner child, I’m able to escape and turn off my phone and just truly relax. Those moments I truly don’t have a care in the world. I wish that feeling would last a life time and never go away. But it does fade, and i pursue that feeling on a daily basis and if I reach that goal of happiness then it was time well spent.
