'happiness is...' - each week we'll meet two lovely ladies to find out what happiness is to them.... if you'd like to take part please drop me an email :)
What makes you happiest?
Feeling fulfilled. Whether it's through a job well done, or knowing I made someone else happy, that feeling of "I'm doing something right" really makes me happy.
Do you have a happy place?
Absolutely! I actually have several, if we're talking physical place, it's probably with the Mr or holding a puppy... there's also a really beautiful drive that I like to take that no matter my mood will always make me happy. If we're talking more in the mind, then it's in my room, with the music turned up real loud.
Do you have a favorite happy song?
I have too many! But I suppose that's not a terrible thing, as they all make me happy.
What gets you past a bad day?
Prayer usually, just getting alone with God. Also, being with friends or family, or sometimes being alone and crafting - kind of depends. Usually if I can crank some tunes, take a drive and get alone with my thoughts for a bit, I can move past anything.
what makes you happiest?
Definitely making things. I get such a great feeling when ever I am creating something with my own two hands. A sense of satisfaction and a bit of an ego boost. :)
do you have a ‘happy place’?
I think I would have to say it's the little town house I share with my boyfriend. This is our first home out of home so it is a very happy place for me. :)
do you have a favourite happy song?
I have a whole happy soundtrack! I have a bunch of songs that take me back to an important time in my life. They are songs that probably don't mean much to others, they are not particularly "happy" songs but they make me happy. :)
Finding something I can do well. For example. Quite often I struggle getting through my day job, I think to myself why am I still doing this, why have I not progressed, pushed myself to a higher position. Then I help someone with their project that they just can't get their head around. When that person leaves my shop feeling good about themselves and what they are making, I feel good about myself. I like to feel as though I am helping people. :)
