Why Happiness Matters (+4 Quotes To Get You Through The Week)

Hey guys!

As of tomorrow, I'll be on a week long road trip exploring Alberta, and I can hardly wait. So for the next few days, I won't be able to reply to comments or read your tweets and there won't be a new post until I get back. (sorry!) But besides that, here are my thoughts on why happiness matters!

Recently, I had one of those days- where you continue to compare yourself to everything and everyone... However just yesterday, I was with a close friend of mine and we did absolutely nothing, yet, still had the best time!

Even though I've only known her for 2 years, it feels like a decade. She's able to make me laugh when I don't feel myself, I can act like a crazy 3-year-old, and I can look my absolute worst around her and she won't care- if anything, she embraces my craziness!

Now that I think about it, she's like a human diary where I can tell her my secrets and be 100% myself.

My best friend is also kind of like a diamond- bright, beautiful, valuable, and always in style.

I would think we're hilarious- I kind of feel bad for the people who don't to listen to our conversations, and enjoy the hilariousness! Not to mention the bad puns I come up with, haha.

These couple of hours I spent with her reminded me why happiness matters.

With one of my old friends, we felt like we didn't fit anymore- like my pink dress that I grew out of when I was younger (You can read the post about OUTGROWING YOUR BEST FRIEND HERE).

But instead, when you surround yourself with positive people like her, you can bring happiness with you. (and that does not mean kidnapping your best friend... haha!)

Oh, and thank you all for the touching comments on my post, LIVING SURROUNDED BY ANXIETY. I might not have gotten the most response on this blog, but for those who did comment,  you made me cry... But in a good way!

So keep posting about your anxiety HERE, and remember to not let one bad day ruin your tomorrow.
