I am happy. I realised this last night, just before I went to bed. This may sound like something a bit odd to suddenly realise or something odd to state, but maybe we should all be shouting about being happy. It's precious. So why am I happy?

I'm happy because I just spent 3 weeks at home. 3 weeks being fed yummy food by my wonderful dad. 3 weeks of a peaceful house to work in. 3 weeks of unlimited careers/life advice.3 weeks of being able to put my slightly broken self back together. 3 weeks of being within 100 miles of The Guy.

I'm happy because I saw my best girl Mel this morning and managed to get coffee and catch up with her too.

I'm happy because I decided to start going to the DW gym again as opposed to our university gym. I stopped going to DW because it takes 20 mins to walk there and back on top of my work out and the university gym is next door to my flat and therefore eradicates travel time and means I can justify a short work out if I was struggling for time. With exams upcoming, the extra time out will benefit me and the better facilities (hello swimming pool, steam room and jacuzzi) are a big pull.

I'm happy because I went to the gym and enjoyed it for the first time in a long time. And I didn't come away in pain.

I'm happy because as I post this, there are just 29 days left until I finish at uni and just 39 days until I head off on my holiday.

I'm happy because I'm eagerly awaiting the arrival of a few little purchases. The first clothes/accessories I've purchased in aaaaages, including a couple of things from new places.

I'm happy because I have a couple of things that I'm planning, and I can't wait for the results to come good. I can't say too much now, but I'll enjoy showing you the outcome.

I'm happy because Gossip Girl is back.

I'm happy because someone commented on how much healthier and happier I looked today, compared to before Easter.

I'm happy because I can be, I should be and because I'm lucky enough to have all of the above.

I'm happy because my box of Bare Minerals goodies have arrived from QVC (more on that later)

I'm happy because although noisy, they're cutting the grass outside my window, and I love the smell of cut grass (yes, cliché I know.)

Sometimes life is tough, we get dealt a tough hand or things don't go as we want them to. Sometimes others impact on our lives in a less than positive way, but sometimes it's good to be happy and good to remember why so you can hold on to it for as long as it is possible.

And I'm also happy to be wearing this little outfit

Martha Jeans, Topshop
Racerback Vest, ASOS
Cardigan, Primark
Necklace Accesorize via giveaway
 It might not be special, but it makes me happy.

What's making you all happy? Agree that it's good to remember these things or think I'm wandering around a delusional cloud?

Happiness is something I don't think we celebrate enough. The world can be such a gloomy, cynical place and it is lovely, heart-warming posts like this one that makes things more cheerful. So glad to hear that there's so much making you smile at the moment.

I had a moment of sheer contentment the other day and it was bliss to just lie there and think "this is how it should be".

I'm sorry to be a moan but it really does my head in when you write a beautiful post like this and someone comments saying nice outfit :/ Uuuugh! I mean, you are BLOODY gorgeous, and your outfit is nice :) But, I am so happy that you are happy. Reading this post (and what alex said above) made me feel all warm and fuzzy inside, and 'human' if you get what I mean? I can relate to that little burst of realisation and contentment you speak of, I only get it now and again but when I do it reminds me how glad I am to be on this earth :) xx
