In this world, it can be a struggle to find happiness, to find loveliness and to find gratitude. It is a problem that is far reaching…stretching beyond cultural, racial or socioeconomic boundaries. We can find that no matter our situation, setup or circumstances, it can be difficult to arrive at contentedness. I believe that life is special – a gift – that we are lucky; and that it is beautiful.

I believe there is power in positive thinking and choosing to dwell on the good. Each of us are on our own personal journey towards happiness; some fraught with more obstacles in their way than others…but all encountering their own. I propose happiness. I propose that we light our eyes on the wonders and goodness that happens our way, that we stumble across in our path. That we chronicle and remember the beautiful. That we remember the flickering moments of blessedness. This is my quest to share my happiness with those around me; to find beauty in this amazing life. Join me on my journey in this sweet life – finding beauty, thankfulness and treasures in my life. I hope that it sparks and buds something within you.

This is a blog about beauty, positivity, mental health, happiness and truly anything that makes me smile. I hope the beauty I find in my life inspires you to find and remember your own.

  1. Happiness is truly a choice. It comes easier for some, but nonetheless, it is a gift that we can all receive. I believe it starts with the eye and how we want to view all things. Ultimately what we take in and what we store resides in our soul. If our soul is “full of light” our eyes are just that wonderful window! We see things in a perspective that looks for beauty and goodness and this fosters contentment and happiness. It doesn’t white wash sorrow and difficulties. It sustains us and gives us deep abiding peace. For me it is my faith which is the anchor and the author of this happiness, contentment, and peace. Love your launching this, Lizzie!

    • Love this, E. Wow.

      Beautifully written. I want to frame “Remember the flickering moments of blessedness.” on my wall.

      I adore how you propose your happiness project so preciously & delicately. You’re so earnest & sincere, that your thoughts continue to resonate with me. Deeply. Love it.

      Oh, I also totally agree. You choose happiness. I like how Connie said that happiness doesn’t whitewash sorrows & difficulties. That’s been true in my life too. We have to choose to surrender to contentment & happiness.

  2. Go Girl! Love it!

    Lately I’m trying to stay in bed a few moments before rising and breath in and out “Thank you” a few times until my spirit and heart agree with the words of my prayer. . . Cuz you know your Mama doesn’t wake up that way naturally!
