Sometimes all you need to do is relax, unwind and appreciate what you have. Look for something positive each day, even if some days you have to search that extra bit. Being positive in a negative situation is a step to success. It’s the little things in life that you need to latch onto and appreciate. Like the cold side of the pillow at night, or getting offered the last slice of pizza. It’s the smallest things that are always mean the most.
A big dose of good vibes are gonna be thrown your way. I read positive stories all the time and I’m a sucker for those sob stories where a community will come together and help to make something amazing. Happiness is spread and me being a loser on the other side of the screen with teardrops falling off from my chin.
Sometimes you need a little reminder of the small things making you happy, here’s the 5 things that make me happy at the moment;
Experiencing Summer Abroad
I’ve always wanted to go abroad for Summer and experience a different culture whether it walking the streets of Rome, eating croissants on our balcony from Paris or lusting over the design in Stockholm. Or what I’m doing now, I feel lucky to be able to travel to the beautiful Berlin with my other half. I wrote a blog on the Berlin Style. Berlin is one of those cities that is so different from what I’m used to. Mesmerising to say the least. Smiles on most faces, graffiti and street art on every wall, a falafel stand at every corner and a party just around the block. Not to mention great weather. (Well, soon I hope.)
Nothing major, on this front. But, I have been experimenting a lot lately with certain ideas for the blog. Giving a more creative insight to Aesthetic Mind and maybe expanding and updating. (You’ll need to stay tuned on this for now) I’ve gotten serious inspiration and my mind is racing full of ideas ready to explode and I’ll soon be putting them into action. Follow me on Twitter for live updates.
A Style Refresh for Summer Clothes
I have been doing the transition from Winter clothes to Summer clothes. Which hasn’t come quick enough, to think I’ll be experiencing a summer this year in comparison to the 4 season summer in Ireland. I’m looking forward to having the option to wear warmer clothes. Time to break away from the neutral colour palette and experience embroidered clothing, try mesh & different patterns.
I never thought the words would come out of my mouth, but more exercise is releasing all those endorphins and I feel great. Cycling through the city streets to the final destination and back. Finding new shortcuts & roads each time we set off. There’s something so thrilling about just getting on your bike and going. Berlin is so big in comparison to Dublin so more walking just comes naturally. Not to mention, the four flights of stairs I have to take up to my apartment every day.
Finding new restaurants
Eating is one of my favourite things to do. There’s just something so peaceful about experiencing a new restaurants. Breakfast dates, brunch or dinner. I’ve become obsessed with falafel & halloumi. Your mouth dances with the flavour and textures when you eat in a good falafel joint. All over the streets of Berlin you can find outdoor stalls that serve up cheap and good quality food. And no matter what time of the day it is, there’s always food available somewhere.
I’ve had so many reasons to be happy lately, but these are my top 5. Have any of you had the pleasure of visiting another country for the Summer? What are your top 5 things making you happy right now?
