And I'll cry if I want to
Happiness to me feels like an internalised sensation akin to a warm embrace, felt most often in the company of my loved ones, especially around Miss Ada. I’ve learned many little things in this life but the most important is to cherish every moment and don’t take anything too seriously. An amazing piece as always Belle!
Happiness to me feels like floating on air and butterflies inside my stomach! So far in life I’ve learnt many many things, but most importantly I’ve learnt not to take life too seriously! Do what makes you happy and fuck what anyone else thinks! Be honest be bold and take those risks that not many people will take!! ❤️❤️❤️
Such beautiful writing darling. Your writing takes me places and it’s gorgeous! I get lost in your words and I absolutely love it!
Happiness feels like a lucky strike, when you wipe between your cheeks and there’s no shit on the toilet paper.
What I have learnt in life is to feed my soul with an enriched diet to create the perfect poo, to then clench my rectum tight for a clean snap, wipe and strike another moment of happiness! For when shit happens it doesn’t always have to messy!
Happiness to me feels like space, time to stop and stare into the distance - quiet contentment. Gratitude for me has been the key - gratitude for all the blessings in my life - including having a wonderful daughter who sits on my back deck writing and another beautiful daughter doing brilliant work for some of the most disadvantaged people on the planet.
And in the end it all comes down to your attitude to life. Focusing your thinking on what’s good, what’s working, what’s possible, what’s beautiful - and those good things and people and places and moments are everywhere and all the time.
Love your writing Belle!
I'm not very sure what happiness feels like, I know it's fleeting and that's not necessarily a bad thing. The contrast between suffering and happiness is important to highlight the presence of either. I'd settle for contentment, but some moments of joy I know happen when I'm listening to music, dancing or trying on vintage clothing. There's something about the promise of a rosy future in those moments, the freedom that hope provides glints a little there. I've also noticed the anticipation of an event is often much more exciting then the real 'day', just like your birthday blues. Thankyou for your words, they once again have me wondering.
It starts with a feeling of peace, hope or thrill, and once savoured my happiness is gratitude.
Love you and love your writing ❤️
Beautiful words Bella. Happiness, for me, is that warmth you feel as the sun peaks through the window and hits your face, when you curl up in bed, sip on your tea and know the day ahead is filled with opportunity. I’ve learned to surround myself with people who provoke thought, share experiences and make me feel valued.
