I think it’s an understatement when I say it’s been one hellish year. This time of year can be hard for people, for many different reasons, but life prevails and we must find a way to push forward, finding happiness where and when we can.
Personally, I try and take care of my own happiness, rather than rely on other people to make me happy. I find ways to make life joyful for myself, whether it’s doing something that makes me feel good about myself or treating myself or doing something nice for someone else, just doing things that make me feel good. I believe that happiness begins with self love, as much as I hate terms like that. If you can find a way to love yourself, whether it’s how you look or how you behave, feeling good about yourself as a person is so important.
There is always someone or something that will make you unhappy in some form or another so it’s crucial to take care of your own happiness when you can. So whilst we focus very much on buying gifts for our loved ones at Christmas, I also think you should take care of yourself and put your own gift under your tree.
