Someone asked me about 2 weeks ago am I happy and without question I replied yes. As I contemplated on what that happiness consisted of I questioned myself if that is really happiness. Now I know I don't get too deep or too personal here but every now and then its good to be relatable.
As I thought about my happiness and what made me happy, I came to the conclusion that when I make other people happy it makes me happy. I posed the question to myself is that happiness for me or a temporary happiness..I came to the conclusion that it was the most temporary feeling no matter how often I put the smile on the face of a loved one or a stranger for that matter. Am I saying that I'm unhappy, of course not I have a great life. What I am saying is I can do more to fulfill my happiness and I have to learn to put me first!
If you saw my last post on IG you saw that I needed to give myself a little attention and I needed it back from my loved ones. A special someone said " Lauren I want you to do only what you want to do for 1 week" and I did just that. Within that week I traveled, I took a much needed trip to see my Bestfriend in LA ( before I got in trouble for not coming...especially since she's been there since July) and it was a constant reminder that its the simple things in life we forget. This past weekend I was reminded that its okay to treat yourself as often as you can, especially when you deserve it!
To my Bestfriend, thank you for having me in your new home this weekend and really taking us back to those high school days.
