Hi guys welcome back, yes yes yes. It’s your favourite blogger again haha! And lest I forget a happy new month to you . My blog headed to 2 months in a bit, I’m just going to go ahead again give myself a little pat on the back. Just a little.
..and the award of the quote of the century goes to.. you already know! . The one on every picture , the one you want to hear when going through a difficult time, Everyone keeps telling you ‘do what makes you happy’ but realistically should you?
Okay relax, I know you’re thinking ‘what is she talking about this time?’ I’m going to tell you definitely. If we were always allowed to do what makes us happy , don’t you think people like Ted Bundy would still be allowed to walk the streets freely . Sometimes what makes you happy is not healthy.
We need to realise that so when patting a fella on the back and telling him ‘go do what makes you happy’ , remember what makes him happy could be negative, what makes him happy could endanger someone. Before you’re all about reading the quote and nodding your head in affirmation, think about what makes the world a better place , whatever we do has an effect positively or negatively, now are you going to go ahead and harness your kleptomania because it makes you happy? Definitely not. You should be all about what’s positive, what’s healthy , what’s worthwhile. Dont do that which puts you and those around you at risk.
Its perfectly fine if what makes you happy are positive things, things worth doing, that’s a whole different story with a beautiful ending. But if your source of happiness becomes that which is detrimental then you’ll need to find a new source . Whatever you do, think of others, think of those who matter to you, selflessness is the key. And in that do you find true happiness.
Sometimes our source of happiness could be someone not a thing, I remember coming across a picture weeks ago with the quote ‘sometimes home could be someone else’ and it resonated with me, I have such people in my lives whom I feel at home with, there’s no need to be what you’re not. These are all factual sources of happiness , and healthy ones of course. So, Find your source and harness it.
