Happiness. 9 simple letters, which add up to a big word. But what is it? Is happiness something easy to define? Does happiness mean the same for every person? And most importantly: Am I happy? I’ve been thinking about this question a lot lately. It’s no big secret, that most people don’t value their happiness or luck enough, you only realize how happy you could be, the moment you loose it.
But do you really want to loose something before valuing your life enough? Or have I already lost something, which is why I am thinking about it now? So many questions and I honestly don’t have any answers. I’ve always been thinking a lot about anything and everything, mostly too much. But still, isn’t it a good thing to think about such things? Me and my best friend often realize how incredibly happy we can be. We already achieved a lot for our age, I guess, however I don’t think it’s bad or something like that to not run your own business at the age of 20 or 21 or even 25. Sometimes I even think I might be happier without all of this. No matter how many clothes I have in my closet, bags in my shelf or shoes in front of my door, happiness isn’t about stuff like that. Of course I am really happy about all of these things, but still really deep inside of my heart, there are other things which make me happy.
Things like jumping into the water of a swimming pool after a really tiring day, knowing that swimming will relax me a little bit. A coffee date with a friend of mine, just talking about anything and everything, cuddling with my cats or visiting my grandma. As different as these things might seem, one thing they all have in common is: those are all experiences, not material items which make me really happy. However I of course know that happiness isn’t measurable in designer bags or work-related success, I often recognize how I loose sight of this. I often forget how happy these moments and experiences make me, I focus all my energy on work-related success. Yes that of course makes me happy but looking back most of the things which had something to do with my job and made me happy were experiences as well.
It’s really hard putting everything which is in my head right now into one blogpost, but I just wanted to share my thoughts with you, to remind you, that happiness is not build on material stuff but on experiences. So no matter what you have on your wishlist right now, just ignore your wishlist for a day and do something which makes you really happy and lets you shine from the inside. I’ll spend today with my Mom in Prague and I am super excited for that. Btw I took these pictures a few days ago with a friend of mine when we went for a coffee date and you know what? I was so happy at this moment, also because I love these pants so much. I’ve always been a true jeans girl and these type of pants never were my thing, because I thought they didn’t suit me very well. Well this one showed me that there are actually some pants which aren’t jeans, which can look really cute an flattering. Best thing about these pants? They only cost 20€, the feeling of ultimate coziness makes me happier than any designer bag, haha.
