{Outfit}: Finding Happiness in the little things

Wednesday February 19, 2014

As most of you know, I am by nature a very peppy and cheerful person who likes to joke around and be silly. The secret to my happiness (as I have mentioned before) is to find joy in all the little things in life; like drinking a cup of hot tea while listening to piano music, for example; or waking up in the morning to my kitty's soft licks that tickle my toes. 

-- En Español -- Como la mayoría de ustedes ya saben, yo soy por naturaleza una persona muy alegre y positiva. El secreto de mi felicidad (como lo he mencionado antes) es encontrar la alegría en las cosas pequeñas de la vida; como beber una taza de té caliente mientras escucho música de piano, por ejemplo; o despertarse por la mañana al cosquilleo de mi gatito lamiendo mis pies.

I have learned throughout the years that it is so important to not take the little things for granted. I must admit that the past couple of months have been really stressful for me personally and workwise; but trying to enjoy the little things is what keeps me centered and happy. Hopefully you can find a little bit of happiness as well in each and every day ;)

Con los años he aprendido que es tan importante darle atención a las cosas pequeñas en la vida. Tengo que admitir que los últimos meses han sido bien estresantes para mí personalmente y en mi trabajo, pero disfrutando de las cosas pequeñas en la vida es lo que me ha mantenido balanceada y felíz. Espero que ustedes también pueden encontrar un poquito de felicidad en todos y cada uno de los días ;)

How do you stay happy? Do you also enjoy the little things?

¿Y tú cómo te mantienes contento y alegre? ¿También eres de disfrutar de las cosas pequeñas de la vida?
