Have you ever stopped to think about what truly makes you happy? Let’s slow down for a moment and think about it. Stop what you’re doing. Close your eyes and think.
Can you see it?
I know what doesn’t make me happy for sure. It’s back to school time so the hustle and bustle of shopping for clothes, shoes, and school supplies has begun along with the stress. Not happy. Then our refrigerator decided to spring a leak after we finished packing our suitcases for vacation the next day….need I go on?
I needed something to propel me to my happy place and knowing that I would soon be on the beautiful beaches of Martha’s Vineyard with my family for a week made me extremely happy. Two boxes of goodness showed up two days before I left for my happy place. Keep reading.
There’s something about leaving the day to day activities, disruptions, and to do’s behind while spending time in my favorite beach town.
I’m not really into Zodiac signs but I do know that Pisces is a water sign and near water is what makes me very happy. I don’t even have to get into the water. Just being near it and hearing the crashing waves is enough for me. The beach is calming, soothing, and purifying (my family name is Purify) which is the perfect state for my happiness. It helps me clear my head. We all need our heads cleared, don’t we?
What’s your happy place?
A few days before our annual family vacation to Martha’s Vineyard, I received a box of chocolatey goodness from Shari’s Berries. A box that truly helped get me to one of my happy places which helped facilitate this post.
