Happy Days Brighten the World with Kindness.....

Life is every changing and ever moving in every which way, soaring to the highest highs and sometimes going completely south. I daresay most people have felt both extremes at some point in their life, whilst others face many on going challenges on a day to day basis.

I've been in quiet thought lately about life's extremes and ones ability to navigate through them. Sometimes we get thrown blessings or heartbreaks for a reason, a season or a lifetime, but it's often the latter (the heartbreaks) that have us lost and grappling at life.

There are several people in my community that are dealing with monumental challenges at present and I'm also conscious that we are all dealing with "something" that is big to us personally. But sometimes we allow our "something or something's" to overshadow one thing that can do ourselves and others facing challenges some good.


I'm talking about showing some kindness, lending a hand, offering a shoulder and some support, running an errand, lending an ear or more to give someone a happy day and some hope. I've been very mindful of this recently and how it feels to be a giver of good amidst my own "something's".

It only seems appropriate to wear this simple joyous frock that is of course known as my Happy Days frock around here. It's a homemade frock from vintage printed cotton that I bought from eBay, a fellow vintage lover alerted me to it on eBay and thought it was exactly something I would like. That's pretty kind and thoughtful huh?


I know this is not what I would normally write about within a style post, but it is very close to my heart, especially at the moment as things happen around me to a few close friends. I know life can bog us all down sometimes with the "something's" we are walking through. But by rolling up our sleeves and helping someone else with or through their "something" for a while will give both you and that other person an injection of hope and positive energy.

By lending your support or help you will be rewarded with calm clarity and a clearer perspective about your own challenges. You will see your blessings more richly and inspire your own hope as well as someone elses. Make it your style to create happy days for others with a little kindness.
