A Journey To Happiness & Positivity

I often go through phases of feeling a bit down and sad. Sometimes there is a reason behind it and sometimes there is absolutely no reason at all! But I basically feel like I want to lie in bed all day and not really talk to anyone. And honestly, I do. I can probably go a week by doing exactly that and I definitely have done that before. However more recently, university priorities have been forcing me to get out of bed and go to uni regardless of how crappy I am feeling and just deal with whatever else life is going to throw at me.

Most of the time, when I actually leave the house and socialise with friends, I feel great. However, there are some days where I still can't see past the wave of sadness I am going through. I force myself into my own little bubble and shut myself out from everyone else. 

More recently, I've been thinking about how these phases affect me and others around me too. If I'm feeling crap, it may reflect on my friend who I am venting to and they don't need that negativity in their life. Therefore, there is one solution. 

Being positive to become happy.

Happiness is something that I've struggled with over the last few months and years, actually. I mean, I used to be a really happy person in my college days and I don't really remember going through any struggles at all. Unlike more recently where these 'down' periods are getting in the way of me having a social life and just leaving my bedroom in general. Perhaps its just life stress getting to my head mixed with other personal problems I've had but I think I can still get back to my old positive, happy and confident self. 

Until more recently, it came to my attention that I need to be more grateful and thankful for what I have. I mean, I am very grateful and thankful for everything in my life and I consider myself very blessed but sometimes the little things get to me and become the focus area of my happiness.

It happens to a lot of people, I imagine. I'm sure some of you have gone through rough patches in your life where you think nothing is going right, everything is falling apart and you don't want to get out and deal with life. But this can all be turned around by changing your mindset. Think about your life, be grateful for what you have, don't focus on the negatives and be happy within yourself.

So from today I'm on a journey. A journey to become a happier and more positive person. I want to be happy with everything in my life, I want to be confident within my own skin and I want to be positive about the future.

I think happiness and positivity is something we should all be thinking about within our own lives and see if there are any mental changes we can be making to live and breathe 'happiness & positivity'.
