HAPPIE THOUGHTS :: Educating Yourself on Your Own Time

Hey, guys!ย  In today’s world, there are so many opportunities to learn, grow, and educate yourself! I once read a quote that said “successful people never stop learning” and it’s so true! Even if you think you’re an expert on a topic, be it cars, medicine, politics, fashion, hair, photography, or anything, you can always learn more. Keeping an open mind around your area of expertise is the only way to grow and eventually be one of the best! If you read a whole book and only learn one thing, that is one more thing you know! There is so much room for self-growth with that mindset! You may or...

HAPPIE THOUGHTS :: Living your Best Life

Hey, guys! Today’s super quick post is about a trending phrase I have been hearing a lot of lately, which is “Live your best life.” “She’s living her best life” “He’s living his best life” “I’m living my best life” I LOVE this phrase because it’s so broad and it can be applied to anyone in any situation (that is, anyone who is living their best life). I think it’s the perfect one-size-fits-all statement because there are so many different versions of success and how to define when someone has “made it”, and not everyone strives for the same things. Everyone’s goals are different so “Living your best life” is...

HAPPIE THOUGHTS :: Be the Reason a Stranger Smiles Today

Hey, guys! It’s been a minute! Yesterday while I was driving, I passed a store front with a sign that said “Be the reason a stranger smiles today.” and I loved it so much I knew I had to write a blog post about it! Today there are so many hateful things going on in the world, we need to make our own positivity! Making a stranger smile is so special because you don’t know what they’re going through, and they may have really needed that smile. So how the eff do you make a stranger smile?? Give them a compliment! There are a million ways to make a stranger...

HAPPIE THOUGHTS :: Embracing your Qualities, Not your Flaws

Hey, guys! Today I want to talk about embracing yourself and embracing your best qualities, instead of focusing on your flaws! We live in a weird society where everyone is constantly spreading the message that “everyone is beautiful” and that we should “embrace our flaws”, and yet no one follows the rule for themselves? We’re all spreading this great advice, meanwhile, no one is listening to it for ourselves!! I’ll be the first to admit that I don’t like my flaws -that’s why they’re called flaws. I know no one else views them the way I do, but it’s hard not to notice them when it’s a part of you!...

HAPPIE THOUGHTS :: Finding your Community

Hey, guys! Today’s post was sparked by a conversation I had with my best friend about a week ago, and then randomly again with my boyfriend just days later. We were talking about how every hobby or profession comes with its own little world, as long as you dig deep enough! For example, there is a massive “beauty” community on Instagram, and we all share products, hashtags, ideas, inspiration, and even certain terms that someone who wasn’t involved in the community wouldn’t know about. On the opposite end, there’s a kayaking community of people who know everything about kayaking, from obscure apparel brands to the rules of the water, and...

HAPPIE THOUGHTS :: I Hate the Rain but the Flowers Love it

Hey, guys! All I have to say about all of this rain is UGH. Where did the sun go???? I’m all for a nice romanticized summer rainstorm- the kind at the end of an extremely hot week when it starts down-pouring even though it’s still hot outside and it sounds #SoZen, but this!! It’s been raining for 40 days and 40 nights. I’m ready to be tan, to start wearing shorts, to go to the BEACH.ย  Everyday I’m so annoyed with the weather…and then I remember, it’s not just humans living on this earth. The plants, trees, rivers, they all need this rain. The rain is more than some picturesque...
