The Little Post Of Happiness Quotes!

10th January 2018

Hey everyone!

I hope the first week or so of the year has treated you well. If it hasn’t, let’s hope the rest of the year will be 10x better! I don’t know about you but I usually get really down and de-motivated in January. I feel particularly plumper after indulging at Christmas, the come down from the festivities sets in and getting through the cold days and dark evenings seems that extra bit harder as the joys of Summer and a holiday seem so far away.

My lovely Jake got me a book for Christmas called “The Little Book of Happiness”, It’s full of cute little tips and quotes to help cheer you up and keep you going through hard times. I thought now would be the perfect time to share some of my favourite ones and my own interpretations of them for anyone suffering the January blues, like me. Here are my 10 favourites!

I love this quote a lot and I feel like everyone could take something from it. To me it sort of epitomises the fact that we as humans naturally take things for granted and it’s quite sad when you think about it as it’s so easy to do. I can’t say I look at EVERYTHING as if it’s the first/last time but I certainly appreciate my time with people I love a lot more nowadays .

I know it’s not as simple as the quote implies but I think it’s trying to tell you that no matter what gets in the way, do whatever you possibly can to become that person you envision yourself as.

As funny as it sounds, I always think of the song The Climb by Miley Cyrus when reading quotes like this. You should definitely try not to see happiness as a destination. People tend to think “when I get this job/this house/a partner/whatever I’ll be happy” but it doesn’t work like that. You need to learn to find happiness in the process of life.

This is pretty self explanatory, take joy from everything you possibly can and go with it. Every cloud really does have a silver lining as cliché as it sounds. Revel in the happiness that you have in your life no matter how simple it is.

I just thought this was a really cute quote. I’ve seen it quite a few times before and I think it’s true that a smile from the right person or even a stranger can change your day.

This is one I really need to take note of myself, I am a huge worrier. The quote is so right though, if you can’t actually change the outcome of the thing with your actions then there is no use worrying. “Worry is the greatest thief of joy” as they say.

I am anything but a religious person but I do surprisingly believe in karma. Treating people the way you want to be treated is also something I believe in (in most circumstances, sometimes people don’t deserve it).

I’ve never heard this quote before I read this book but I think about it every day now. It really made me think as we wander around as people looking for something that will apparently just one day click into place and we’ll be fulfilled. This quote made me realise that doing that is actually completely pointless as we need to build ourselves not just wait around for life to happen to us.

This goes hand in hand with the last quote, you have to create your own happiness. I believe that good things come to those who WORK for it.

And last but not least, don’t give up on simple things or “little” things as they’re often the parts of life that end up being the most important or memorable. 🙂

Well I hope you enjoyed todays post, It was a little different from normal but I hope it’s helped to motivate you/cheer you up a little! What is your favourite quote to keep you inspired or motivated?

’Til Next Time,
