it's okay to be happy

It's okay to be happy - this is one of my daily reminders. People who know me would think of it weird, as I'm generally a happy person that's all smiles and laughs. But sometimes, I have that irrational fear that if I'm too happy now, then something bad is going to happen soon. To balance it out, to jerk me back into reality, whatever you call it, I feel like I'm constantly waiting for the other shoe to fall. So I'll find an excuse to find a flaw in things, to not let people get too close, and I'll tell myself that it doesn't matter if I'm extremely happy, at least I won't be waiting for the bad to swallow me up.

It's a safe way of living - it's also a coward's way out. I can't say that I'm about to go out and conquer the world soon, but hey, being happy is a start, yeah?

So you don't have to wait for the other shoe to fall. You can be happy, over your grades, over your accomplishments, over having that extra cupcake. You only have one life and it's a darn waste if you're constantly looking over your shoulder.

  1. Hi there! Recently I have noticed your cute blog and thought you deserved some recognition  I decided to nominate you for a Liebster Award… Read more about it on my post xx https://allisg.wordpress.com/2015/01/13/the-liebster-award-nomination/

  2. This made me feel good. And I agree and relate. Considering we'll inevitably have sad times in our lives, we should milk the shiz out of happiness. I, too, have my moments of "this is getting too good, something bad will happen" and it's the ultimate way to waste a joyful time - whatever happens would happen anyway and all we can do is make the most out of the moment. :)
