Reasons to be cheerful! xxxx

Reasons to be Cheerful at Mummy from the HeartThis week I came across a lovely cheerful blog hop started by Mummy From The Heart. This is my first ever blog hop but I can't think of a better one to start off with.
 1. I am lucky enough to be very close to my big sister and her beautiful little babies and I am looking forward to spending some time around the smiley faces of my sisters happy family-always a guaranteed to make me smile!
2. I'm looking forward to my lovely boyfriend taking me out for some "us" time next week now we barely ever have the opportunity to spend time together anymore. We decided to make a list (like a to-do or promises we have to keep) to help us continue feeling as happy and as close as we do. Spending some time together-whether it be having a coffee (or hot chocolate in my case! yummy!) or going to the cinema once a month- was on our list. There is also an added bonus as we are celebrating being together for a year next month!!

3. After getting a C in art in my GCSE's I felt very down as I worked hard for my favourite subject despite the fact I do not enjoy being told what to draw. I put all my effort into it and still people who only took it as a filler subject gained higher grades. I stopped drawing for a while, I found myself missing the freedom of a pencil and paper. As I began drawing again my friend noticed my work and asked me to design not one but two tattoo's for her! One in respect for her Grampy which I am determined to make perfect. My art shall forever be on someone's skin and viewable to the world.

4. That simple moment when someone says something that makes you feel amazing about yourself! Whether it's a simple compliment of "I love your top" or someone close to you saying how nice you look-after much effort trying to be healthy! (Despite how much I love my snicker bars!) Or when comparing myself to a scarecrow being told I'm "beautiful" there's always that heart-warming moment that makes you feel on top of the world for the world for the rest of the day!

5. Having the thought that someone may see this and write their own list-honestly once you get going you feel so much better. That's coming from someone who was extremely grumpy half hour ago! So please give it a whirl and brighten your day.
