We were both tired after a long day and a sleepless night with our daughter. My partner went upstairs with Miss Little Munchkin aka Jumping Bean first, I followed after. When I got upstairs I saw them both sleeping soundly. I stopped for a moment and let my heart fill with joy and happiness of seeing two people whom I love with my whole heart relaxing and resting.

What does make you happy?

I often find out that people feel happy when they surround themselves with materialistic items or money. They forget the importance of emotions and feelings which doesn’t cost a dime.

Stop for a moment, forget about the money and materialistic items and ask yourself what’s really important in your life.

  1. Yes, happiness is something most of us chase all our lives in all the wrong places. And when we come to a certain age or incident we reshape our idea of happiness where it really boils down to the simple things like family, friends, a bee flying around in the city, the blue sky after a dark period etc.
    I think as a little step for me to describe happiness is already the thought to be able to think about it consciously as I could be chasing all the wrong things in pursuit of happiness…
    I saw your support page with links to mental health organizations. I can recommend two more if you want to have a look? Both charities work with people who are suicidal, one is a house the other is ambulant, both in London.

    In Pimlico, ambulant face-2-face support started in 2016 by Samaritans: http://listeningplace.org.uk/
