If You’re Happy And You Know It

Happy!  Its hard to know you’re happy… until you’re not.

I definitely lost ‘the happy’ at the beginning of this year. Life got hard!

Then I was made redundant and although that should have been the unhappy bit, it was actually the start of me finding a lot of ‘happy’.

Along with being made redundant the other great source of ‘the happy’ was my niece coming into the world.

One look at that face and I get an instant boost of ‘the happy’.

She lives two hours away though and has a lot of sleeping, playing and generally being cute to do so I cant expect her to be at my beckon call!

I took the time whilst not working to think about how to be ‘happy’ and the results surprised me.

Expensive things, grand gestures and cake make me smile but they are not the source of my happy.

I am a messy person, hugely messy, I can make mess anywhere! DO you know what makes me happy….being tidy! I know, the irony! Having a tidy home, organised wardrobe, cupboards and drawers makes me happy. I can get this feeling for free admittedly, however I do like to throw money at a situation therefore a lovely cleaner and some new storage have given me my base layer of happy!

In thinking about how to get happy I started reading the NEOM organics blogs about mindfulness, being kind to myself and how to find happiness and you know what they are wonderful. Intelligent, grounded, stylish and simple.

Anyone that knows me or has ever read anything I have written will guess the next bit….yes I then did some shopping. NEOM have a wonderful range called HAPPY and it does just what it says on the tin! The soothing yet invigorating scent of Spring – white neroli, mimosa and lemon combined with fresh grass notes – relaxes me, helps me shed any unnecessary worries and gives me an uplifted, positive state of mind.

It is also a very HAPPY coincidence that they currently have a gold plated version of the wonderful candle designed in collaboration with the designer Jenny Packham……everytime I look at it twinkling on the table in the hallway I laugh to myself….it’s a little daily reminder of how important it is to know what makes you HAPPY – shiny things that smell nice with a big dollop of fashion on the side….oh yeah and to be mindful and kind to myself!
