Happy Blue Monday everyone! Today is supposedly the most depressing day of the year. Its a Monday, in January, its cold and wet and dark and pretty bleak. I'm not letting that get me down though, so here are 5 things that have made me happy recently.
1. Starting a new year
Hello 2016! I am very happy that it is finally a new year. Not to be all "new year, new me!" but I am a huge fan of new starts, whether it's a new week, month or year, I always feel a bit more motivated. This year I decided I wanted to cry less and go with the flow more. Life happens and sometimes you just have to let it.
2. A new cardi
I love stripes, a lot. I could wear a different stripy outfit every day of the week I own that many striped things, so when I saw this cardi in Sainsbury I was immediately drawn to it. As I buy my lunch from Sainsbury almost every day I was taunted by this cardi daily and I eventually decided that screw it, I wanted it! So now I own another stripped item of clothing, and I am very happy about it.
3. Someone making me feel amazing
The past few weeks someone has made me feel pretty amazing about myself, and that has been kind of awesome. I feel kind of like me again after feeling pretty lost the past few months. It's amazing that someone saying a few nice words can totally change how you feel about yourself.
I've said it before, and I'll say it again. I love blogging. I'm still behind on reading and commenting on blogs and I definitely want to get back into this as it's one of the main reasons I love being part of the blogging world. I'm loving writing for me again though, its a lot more relaxed than work and I get to write about whatever I want.
5. Making a Murderer
If you haven't heard about this series then where have you been?! It's a Netflix documentary series about a man being convicted for a crime it is likely he didn't do. I'm a huge fan of documentaries and law, so this was perfect for me. I watched the whole series in a weekend! I definitely recommend giving it a watch.
