Happiness is when you feel good about yourself without feeling the need for anyone else’s approval.
Happiness is a choice and one that I choose a long time ago. I realised a while back that waiting for someone to make you happy is like waiting for rain in the Sahara Desert. I have grown up surrounded with happiness, love, care and I have been given everything I ever needed if not more and I do not mean this in materialistic way but I mean being provided with a good healthy home. I hope one day when I have a family of my own I will be able to provide the same if not more.
January for me was an amazing month, I do not know where it zoomed off to but I am glad that I had the fun I was meant to have in it and ready for February. As always with these types of posts I will be sharing things that made me happy and things that really stood out for me blogging wise and otherwise.
This blog has taken such a back seat over the last 12 months that starting this month I will be investing more time. If I do not have content for the blog I will be spending time promoting old posts. What made my January happy blog wise was that all my Period Box posts were such a hit with my readers, they each averaged 2k views in a few hours which is might awesome.
A July Dreamer had an incredible January, my usual monthly views are just shy of 8k per month but January saw the blog hit just under 17k views, I mean what is that all about! I am still in shock but I aim to improve on that for February.
Though this blog suffered big time, A July Dreamer had more opportunities just liked December and we made just over £1000 in sponsored posts.
I live alone and most would thing I get a lot of ‘alone time’ to chill and relax but with working 9-5, trying to run to blogs plus their promotion I hardly have time to myself so I was very pleased to have had two Saturday’s all to myself and did absolutely nothing.
Just before Christmas last year a friend and I booked a girls weekend getaway to Prague and even though it was almost -20 we had so much fun. We managed to visit the famous Charles Bridge, Prague Castle and whilst wandering the streets of Prague we found ourselves in old town square another popular place for tourists.
Because just going away one weekend away is not enough I had arranged to visit my brother and he’s family at the end of January and I did just that. We had so much fun, my nephew is a the cutest list man ever, he couldn’t pronounce my name (Miranda so he kept saying HEY or Randa or Ratanda)
January was an amazing month and I am so excited to see what February has in stall. I am traveling a lot this month but I intend to make the most of it.
To be happy, you have to be your very own sunshine
