My Guide For Achieving Happiness

Hello lovelies, today I was feeling quite emotional and I was thinking about ways I could be happier in the long run and hopefully it might help some of you.  So that's what I'm going to write about today.

1. Accepting your self

Accepting yourself is really difficult, especially when now everyone is trying to be like each other and the standards have gotten so much higher. This is something I have struggled with for a long time. I used to get so down about the fact that I wasn't like other people. But really I am glad that I'm not trying to be someone I'm not, I'm still so weird but at least I'm not trying to be someone I'm not. Accept yourself. For me that took like four years and I'm still not halfway there yet. But I will get there eventually. You have to accept that you have flaws and learn to love them. 

I look so pale here. 

2. Writing 
This of course depends on the person, I love writing just because it feels really freeing, and it's something so private. It's just between you and your thoughts and I love it. 

Bonus points for anyone who can read it. 

3. Wear something you feel comfortable in 

I can't stress this enough! I feel like now, everyone wears things just to fit in and feel accepted. Wear something that you like, wear something that you feel comfortable in and wear something that you feel brings our your personality.

This just happened to be what I was wearing today!
If you follow my Instagram (@http.lookitsfifi) you will
know for fact that this shirt suits my personality.
I purchased this in NewLook. 

4. Do something you love 

I have said this in so many blog posts, so sorry if it sounds repetitive! But this can be really good for boosting your happiness! My hobbies are photography, listening to music, reading and blogging. So find what you like, and do it!

4. Stepping out of your Comfort Zone

This is so important! It allows you to feel much more confident and happy because it tells you that you can do things that you never thought you could do! This of course depends on what you find difficult to do, if you're scared of something just try to do it! Because it is the best feeling in the world, when you beat your fear. 

Even something as small as wearing a dress can be 
challenging for me. Especially without tights. 
But like I said everyone has different limits.
Also, please excuse the fact that my stomach looks 
masssssssive here!! But, what can you do! 

5. Be yourself 

This is kindof like the Accepting Yourself one, it has the same concept. Don't change yourself to fit in, I hate when someone so nice changes to fit in and literally becomes an ass. If you choose to be mean that's your decision, but don't change just because you want people to like you. I'm weird like, so weird but I've accepted it, and it doesn't even bother me anymore. Just be true to yourself.

6. Have some alone time

By this, I mean having some time to yourself, without talking to people and without the internet and your phone. This is easy for me because I am an introvert and like having time to myself anyway. This is again a personal preference and depends if you like spending time by yourself. I love going for walks or runs just to clear my head, I end up feeling so much better emotionally and physically. It can really turn a bad day to a really good day.

These are all my tips! I hope you enjoyed reading this, and I hope it helped! Stay true to yourself and last but not least stay happy! I love you all.

Lots of love,
