I was randomly browsing images on pinterest when I came across this Happiness Jar image.
I thought the idea was so cool. There are so many bloggers who write about the things that made them sad or angry, and to be honest I’m one of them. So if we write about sad things, why not write about the happy things too?
However, I don’t have a cute jar like that on the image and I don’t have cute papers too so I just decided that I’ll virtually write down the things that made me happy and drop them into my virtual Happiness Jar.
And I thought of doing this once a week, or whenever there’s so much happiness going on.
So here’s the first post of My Happiness Jar.
1. My Brother’s Pointillism Drawing
My youngest brother sent me and image of his pointillism assignment and I was really surprised and of course happy. I wasn’t really expecting anything this good from him.
My brother is a lazy boy and he never excelled in school because he never tried to. He was just always stuck in front of the computer playing all sorts of online games he could find. We thought that he will change once he starts UNI as college students would be busy with assignments, projects, thesis, etc., plus the travelling hours from Rizal to Manila already takes up a lot of time.
But amidst all these obstacles in his gaming life, he still finds his way.
Nevertheless, I am still a proud and happy Ate!
2. A Gift from My Roommate
My roommate gave me this mug as a Christmas gift. I’m so happy because I now have a pencil holder. Hence my bedside table became a bit organized.
3. Princess’ DIY Bullet Journal Post
In this post, Princess shared photos of her DIY Journal and the thing that caught my attention is her To Do List which included – Start the 21 Day Fast. We had a small conversation on her comment section about fasting and I thought she just gave me the answers to my questions. I am happy and grateful to see her post.
4. A Verse
I have to be honest this time, and it really hurts to say that I’ve lost my connection with Him for quite sometime. To tell the truth, I haven’t visited any church for a long while, not that I’m not a believer. It’s just that here in Maldives, obviously there’s no church for me to go to and when I was in Dubai, some of my friends asked me to attend the Bible Studies and stuff but the minute I hear their Pastor speak, I knew that I know better than him/her. Not that I’m being arrogant, I just know who knows and who doesn’t.
That I haven’t been able to visit any Church for a long while didn’t make me lose my connection with Him for I read the Bible and I pray to Him directly.
However, somehow I got lost in between.
Today I opened the Bible, didn’t search for any particular verse. I just opened it randomly and this is the present that I got from Him.
I’ve been a very naughty child and I got lost. But He led me back to Him. I am happy and grateful for that.
How about you? What are the things that made you happy recently? Would you like to drop them into the Happiness Jar?
I’d love to hear from you!
