Happiness In The Chaos

Did you see that go fund me page I posted last week?  If not, check it out here. It has been difficult for me to find something to write about because I just wasn't feeling it.

Now you know my life is in a bit of turmoil you can see how it may be difficult to find time to write, much less topics that are audience appropriate. I could not possibly be pushing out any kind of happiness.  Guess again.

One important life lesson, I am definitely trying to learn as fast as possible is that there is always something to be grateful and happy about.  

There are so many things that are going to happen to you in your lifetime.  
These things are definitely going to happen to you.  
They are definitely going to hurt.
Sometimes it is going to feel like your whole life is being ripped right out from under you.  
That is okay. 
You still have to find happiness.  
For your own sanity, you have to find it.

I am going to share with you some the ways that I find happiness in the chaos.



If you do any kind of research on happiness, you will almost hand in hand find service.  If you are lost.  If you are unhappy.  Find yourself a group of people who need your help.  I personally found that there an overabundance of places that need exactly what you have to offer.   I personally have signed up for election inspection.  If you have never done it, I highly recommend it to be on your bucket list.  That, however, is not the only thing that you can do to bring a little sunshine into your life.  Service brings happiness.

Surround yourself with people who love you.  This is one thing that I know will brighten any dark time.  Everyone has someone who will love them without judgment.  My favorite people to be around when I am feeling down are the kids.  It doesn't matter if it is my four-year-old or a pack of preteen girls, these priceless little creatures create happiness without effort.  Trust me that if you think life is taking its toll on you, talk to a group of preteens.  Braces, boys, periods, school, and their cell phones.  Hang out with them.  Listen to their struggles.  They love the attention.  

Talk with the people who are there to listen.  Communicate your thoughts and let them help you.  I think no matter how old we are there is something that makes us scared to share.  Tell people what you are struggling with, do not hide because you are ashamed or worry what people will think.  Speak out loud.  I find that the more I speak about my struggles past and present, the more people I find who struggle with the same battles.  

Fight your battles with your head up and your face forward.   

When the chaos comes, there is still happiness.
