Happiness... it's a bit of a strange one. There will be times when I think to myself 'in this moment right now, I feel completely and undoubtedly happy' and of course there will be other moments where I won't be so happy, and thankfully these times are just 'moments'. Recently I've been thinking quite a lot about happiness and in particular my happiness.
If your new to my blog then you might not know that I'm currently study Fine Art at University, however the course I'm doing is a Foundation Degree. A Foundation Degree is the first two years of any University course, you have the option at the end of the second year to keep it at a Foundation Degree or you can do a top up year which will bring it to a BA Degree. Anyway the point I was making is I have a lot of thinking to do as to what my next move is and where do I want to be in a few years time? and of course the biggest question of all what the hell am I doing with my life? 
After a good chat with my dad, it came to my attention that very few people have their dream job but that doesn't necessarily make them any less happier than a person who does. I think the point I'm trying to make is life doesn't always work out the way you plan, and that's ok. You may have a job that you hate but the people you work with are the people you couldn't quite live without. I'm beginning to think you don't need to love your job or enjoy it to be happy.


  1. Happiness is definitely a funny one. And deciding what you want to do with your life is difficult (I'm still not sure at all!), but most things tend to just work out by themselves :) That's such a lovely illustration, by the way!

  2. This is such a lovely post you have a really nice blog i will be following you on bloglovin:)

  3. Reading this post has made me feel sooo much better about my future, I'm always so worried I won't even have my 'dream job', but your right, you don't need to love your job to be happy!

    1. Glad to hear it helped :) I was the same, I was really worried but after having a good think about it and writing this post I feel so much better/happier. X

  4. I can perfectly relate to this.. I just finished my degree and I'm basically being forced to keep studying by my parents (and boyfriend) who really want me to get a Master's degree in Library Science even though I really dislike studying, and I just really want a job. I feel a bit lost because I don't know if that's what I want to do the rest of my life but either way it wouldn't be such a bad thing if I ended up as a librarian right? At least that's what I tell myself!

  5. This was a really nice post. I agree about happiness. I also think that everyone is under the impression that once you get your dream job, you'll be super happy but that is unfortunately not always so. I don't think you can be happy 100% is any job but then again I guess it all just depends on the attitude people choose to project. :)
