Hello World… 2.0

Dear World,

My name is Amelia, and I’m a people pleaser. I always have been and I think I’ve finally realized just how much that has hurt me in life. I don’t do anything, or almost anything, without getting some sort of “okay” from someone else.

I don’t talk about controversial or inappropriate things, I don’t follow my own style, I try to go with the flow of everyone else. I am a trained chameleon. I am very, very good at being a chameleon. Most people would describe me as quiet. Now, I have a lot of opinions, in fact my mind is a very loud place to be, there’s hardly ever any silence in there.

Now that it’s a new year, I’m going to be very cliche and reintroduce myself because “new year, new me” ya know?

Recently I died my hair lavender and chopped off about six inches, it’s now shoulder length and I love it. People look at me weird and honestly I don’t even care anymore. I’ve wanted to do this for years.

My blog has often been neglected for months at a time and a big reason for that is because I feel like I have to blog about certain things. Now though, I really want to dedicate my blog to things that I want to talk about. If I post two book reviews in a row, so be it. If there aren’t any pictures, so be it. If I want to be pessimistic, SO BE IT.

So hello world, again. I hope that my blog is a thing you’d like to read. I’m sure with all of my interests you’ll find something to read!

Happiness Is…

I got this book a while back called “Happiness Is…” with 500 different things for people to be happy about.    I love flipping through it every once in a while and discovering things that I never thought about before. All the little things that can make you happier.

This book represents only 500 things that can make people happy and each one is a unique and special thing.

This book is a great one to keep on your coffee table at home, it’s such much fun.

Today I decided to share with you ten things that make me happy:

1 A good cup of coffee to drink in the morning.

2 Clean sheets on my bed

3 A whole night where all I have to do is sit and read and watch Netflix

4 Pictures of friends, and family, and ones that I’ve taken too

5 Strawberry Kiwi Snapple

6 Hugging people I love

7 Fresh notebooks and new pens

8 Hearing the perfect song at the perfect moment

9 Getting a new book

10 Picking out the perfect present and card for a person

There are so many other things that I could list, but I’ll leave you with ten. What are some things that make you happy?

I’m thinking of making a series of posts with this topic. Just the little things in life that make a big difference day to day.

I’ll see you all on Sunday.
