September was a spectacular month for me. Realising what I want out of my career, and heading towards the right direction in my life, I felt unstoppable. I felt happy again. I lost my job of over two years in July and was on an instant downward spiral of uncertainty and sadness. I didn't know what I wanted, what I was doing and where I was going. But now, I feel so much more optimistic about my future and I can tell that the positivity is shining within what I'm doing everyday.
To top off a great month, my boyfriend of ten years and father of my only son finally proposed to me, asking me to marry him. Everyday I literally feel like I'm on a cloud because of how happy I am these days. I finally realised that happiness is a feeling, not a destination, and I'm okay with that. As Julian Baker in One Tree Hill said to Brooke Davis, "Happiness is not a destination. It is a mood, it is not permanent. It comes and goes and if people thought that way then maybe people would find happiness more often." And I can positively say I have found happiness so much more lately. In big things, in little things, in every aspect of my life.
So without further ado, here are a few things that made me happy throughout September.
I hope you all find inner peace and happiness someday.
