It's amazing for me to see that June is almost out of the door already. Seriously, where did this month go?? I felt like weeks were just flying by in a blur. I never posted yesterday what made me happy (for "Twenty ways in 20 days" challenge) but, honestly, I'm happy that this month is almost over!!! It was a very long and stressful month. There were so many things I wanted to do and achieve but never did. I worked a LOT more than I was used to, and it just seems like my whole world has shifted. Which it did, if you think of all the changes that are coming soon.

But what was the hardest is that I love to have things under control, I love to balance my time. And now I just feel that I can't get a grip of things. Talking about getting a lesson on humility, faith and trust :) Because that's exactly where I am right now.

On the other hand (and the thing that makes me happy today!), I'm so happy that I did this challenge! It really helped me to slow down and find at least one thing every day to be grateful for. Seriously, I don't know how I would have survived through June without it!!

Even when life sucks, there is always ALWAYS something to be happy about and to be grateful for! Even when you can't see the sun, it doesn't mean, light isn't there.

With a few adjustments, I'm slowly getting life balance back. We are not where we want to be but we are where we can still thrive and be happy...

And what made you happy today, this week, this month??


  1. Even though I forgot to post my every day happy, as I forgot since I had been so busy this month, I did and do always have something every day to be happy about. Thanks for the challenge Lena, it is a life lesson we need to hold on to every day. xx

  2. In reality, the moments are rare that things are where we want them to be. That's why it is important to find the good in where ever we are. And, I can't believe it's been 20 days already.

  3. This has been a very hard month... what made me happy was capturing the final days of my nephews life, having fun, living life, enjoying time with his wife & boys. I'm thankful for those moments...

  4. It's been a hard week for me, but some of the things I've worried about don't really matter. What matters is that I have my children and husband. We have a roof over our heads and food to eat. I hope you guys can have a less stressful July.

  5. Life events and my emotions can change so rapidly. If you had asked me Thursday morning what made me happy, I could rattle off a big list, like good friends, the ability to travel with them, meeting new people, beautiful weather, discovering a new flower, finding a bargain on a sewing machine, and within an hour it had all changed to doom and gloom and why is this happening to me. I was in a really low place yesterday but I'm coming out of it today and trying to find the silver lining in my cloud.

  6. Thanks again for hosting this, Lena. It definitely helped to affirm the important things in my life.
