This is the first time I have taken part in the 52 Weeks of Happy challenge, started by Jen at little birdie. Quite a few other bloggers take part in this too and it has been really nice to see other people's happy things.
I'm keen to try and find little happy things each week as a focus for positive thinking. I'm a carer and it can be quite hard work and negative at times so, I think this positive focus will be good for me. I will definitely try to do a post every week but if I miss a week, that's ok! I've really been looking forward to starting this challenge but it has been overshadowed this week, I'm in a lot pain from my wisdom tooth and even painkillers aren't really working. I'm due to have it out on Friday so hopefully it will still go ahead. Fortunately, all these happy things happened before my pain started.
Here are my happy things for the first week of January.
1. Frosty mornings. Seeing everything glisten and hearing the crunchiness.
2. Rudolph Christmas socks. I bought these in Tesco and I love them!
3. Celebrating News Year Eve. I went to my sisters, in the end and we played the Wii.
4. Essentials magazine subscription. My mum bought this again for me this year, using her Tesco Clubcard vouchers so it only cost £12 for the year.
The happiest people don't have the best of everything, they just make the best of everything.
Hope you've all had a happy week!
