7 reasons to be happier



One: You are much more valuable than you think you are. There is no single human on this planet that is the same as you. You are an intricate, dazzling creation.
Read a few verses here.

Two: Food. Food is wonderful, but you probably don't need me to tell you that, since you already know. Seriously, though. what if food was just a flavourless substance that we only ate to stay alive?
I'm currently loving this recipe.

Three: Whatever you're going through, whatever you've been through, whatever is to come, remember this: even the worst things we experience in life come to an end. Hold on, hold on. And don't be afraid to feel triumphant when you make it.
Think about things you like, things that make you feel better, whenever you're struggling with depression pangs. Like the things on this list.

Four: Jesus. He is, He was and He is to come. When you can't breathe and it feels like you're dying, reach for Him and He will resurrect you with His strength.
Listen to this song, and maybe this one.

Five: Hugs exist. And they are (usually) warm, and they are (usually) soft and they are (usually) free. Hug someone if you are cranky. It helps.
Check out this article: The Physiological Benefits of Hugging. I wasn't kidding. It really, actually helps.

Six: You are alive. You are in this world filled with opportunities and chances and people.

Seven: You have made me happier by reading this. so go ahead and feel good now.
Chin up, buttercup.

  12. Summer here always puts me in a depressing slump, and I honestly don't know why; maybe it's that I'm lacking actual conversation with people outside of my house. It's weird too, since I just got back from vacation! But thank you for this. I'm going to try to be a bit more positive today <3

    xoxo Morning

    2. Frosty White. It's gorgeous!
      And ugh I just got an email saying it's just been shipped in the 6. :( But it's okay once I get it I can exchange it for the 5. :D just silly me for not checking the sizing before paid. :P
      That's all good T! xxoo

      Delete
    3. What kind of case did you order it as? Also, I don't have a design called Frosty White, Frosty White is a case type...but I'm glad you think so!

    4. Oh I'm sorry! It's called Lacy Blues, I must have mixed up the names that were on the order sheet :)
      I ordered it in a 6, but I only have a 5s. But i am so happy because Casetify said I could keep the 6 and they are sending me the case in the 5s size for free! :D that pretty much made my year! :D

    5. And I'm pretty sure I ordered it in the Classic Snap :D I misread your question so I thought you asked what size I ordered it in, I must be super tired! :P

    6. Awh! That is awesome! And thank you so much. It's so super cool.
