Just Living Life

I haven’t been posting on here as much lately, and this is due to several reasons. I can certainly make excuses- I’ve been busy, it was Nick’s birthday, I’m trying to transition the blog to a new site- but the only true reason is that I have been busy just living the normal, everyday life I have gotten used to over here. Along with this, over the past several months (even years, to be honest) I have seen an abundance of posts circling the internet on “10 things you need to do to be happy right now”, “25 things every 20-something should know”, “20 things to make you happy in 5 years”, and the list goes on. I’m sure you’ve all seen posts like this. 

Well, lets be honest- if we all spent our entire lives reading these posts, how are we ever supposed to be happy? Because there will always be somebody out there, telling us we need to do this or stop doing that in order to be happy. 

You know what makes me happy? Having the freedom to do what I please, and not being told constantly I need to change what I’m doing. I will admit, I’ve read a fair amount of these articles circling the internet. The message I receive from all of them is to focus your time on doing what you love, spending time with the people you love, and just plain focusing on being happy.

So lately, I’ve been doing just that. I have spent an extraordinary amount of time curled up on the couch with Nick. I’ve been reading (and re-reading) some of my favorite books, in preparation for their movies to be coming out in the next several weeks. If I haven’t felt like doing something, I simply haven’t. Which may be why I haven’t posted here as much- I do enjoy posting on my blog. But truth be told, not much new or exciting (that I can tell the entire world about!) has happened in the last week. 

With that being said, off I go! I promise I will post, as soon as I have something relevant to say. In the meanwhile, I’m just going to focus on making myself happy by just living life, plain and simple.
