I have 3 siblings. Two brothers and a sister. My fiancé, Bella, also has 3 siblings, all girls. We have spoken at length about what having children means. More importantly, we talked about why we want/don’t want children.
I’ve had dozens of messages from people telling me their ‘tricks to happiness’. I can’t express how happy it makes me knowing that there are people out there who have found some form of support in my words. But let me just say one quick thing. They aren’t tricks. Not to you. They are tools of the trade that is being happy and better yet, they work for you.
Come on, you knew it was coming. Everyone harps on about how important excercise and diet are, so I thought I would share my own thoughts on it. Firstly, I am not a nutritionist. I was a chef for a while, but really the only take away from such a career is that I love butter on everything.
I, personally, have a tendency to stone wall people. It’s a default setting for me and something I am trying my best to change. Those that know me, are aware of this and know that if they endure the wall it comes down. But they shouldn’t have to do that.
From your personal relationships to the progress within your working life, all of these have varying levels of success. The key here is to work out what they are. At what point do you, personally, put a finger on it and say ‘yeah, this is success’.
My Dad used to tell me that money can’t buy happiness. I thought he was a fool, a poor fool at that.
