I bought a candle today. And it made me happy. It isn’t really a big deal or anything. It’s not normally something to note. But today I note it because it made me happy to buy and light my candle. And as I sat and thought about it, I think everyone should get themselves a candle. And do it often. Now, I don’t necessarily mean to purchase a candle at a store. But what I mean is, do something small for yourself that makes you happy. And do those small things often.
There’s a lot in the world to make us unhappy. Be it unpaid bills, school, jobs, or rocky relationships. There’s enough negativity in the world. So in light of that, live on the offense. I believe that in doing little things that make us happy, we, in a way, speak to the negativity in life declaring that we choose into happiness. We choose into joy.
Steal your peace back. Even if it’s only for a moment. Relish that moment of peace. Bask in the tranquility. Rest in the moment that you were able to make something go right!
It may not mean much to anyone else. But the reality is, everyone else doesn’t have to live your life…YOU DO! So live it well! Take a moment to get yourself a candle. And do it often!
