The Measure of Happiness
I’m not quite sure how to write this blog post. I’m not very good with writing from the heart. But let’s give it a go.
So, what I really want to say to anyone reading is surround yourself with friends and family. Not any old friends, but friends that feel like family.
After a lovely evening out with some friends, the walk home allowed my thoughts to wander. I have some wonderful people in my life, from all walks of life. They are people who I’ve grown up with, people I’ve just known for a short time. People who I see day in, day out. People who I see a few times a year.
I am so blessed to have all these wonderful people in my life. Those who share my dreams and ambitions, those who need a confident, those who you have a giggle with, those who you can just chat for hours with as the world passes by, those who send you a text message, just to let you know they are thinking of you. These are all people that I can rely on to be there and they know I’ll be there for them.
I feel so blessed that I have so many wonderful friends who enrich my life in so many ways, and I hope this is a two-way thing.
I look around and there’s so many people who put time in material things and measure their worth by these things. Your worth should be measured by your genuine happiness. The quality of my happiness is measured by me by the quality of my friendships. So if you are having a down day, don’t hit the shops, don’t lock yourself away, go and see a friend. Improve your quality of life by investing time in friendships. It’s the gift that keeps on giving.
To all my friends, near and far. Thanks for being you, thanks for being my friend. May we always look out for each other, no matter where our paths may lead.
