On being happy



January blues. I know people suffer from these, or SAD. I know that depression is a medical condition.

Some people aren’t happy unless they are unhappy, and I wonder why that is.

I know this blog of mine is (mostly) all happy and rosy, but that is how I want it to be. And that is how I want my life to be, therefore it is. (Mostly)


I haven't made any New Years resolutions, never really do. I’m not going to sit around checking days off on the calendar to change something about my life I’m un happy with.


Sometimes I’m knackered, grumpy, irritable, but that doesn't mean I’m unhappy, it just means I need to sleep.

So, if you think you want to be happier in 2013, then do it. Be it. It’s your choice.



  1. Wonderful post and so true! Hugs xxx

  2. Such a great post! And that image is so right-2013 doesn't have to change-we do! This is going to be a great year-I can feel it in my bones.

It would drive my partner crazy..hes an English teacher! anyways...i digress! Wishing you a happy, healthy year full of love, light and laughter xxx

  4. Love this post! I tend to be a bid sad on the cloudy days and I embrace the sun when we see it.But for now I sit by the fire,close my eyes and dream of summer!

  5. Well said Claire! I appreciate starting off my morning with these words. Wishing you a happy 2013 :) And thank you for the Christmas card! So sweet of you to send me holiday cheer xo

  6. I'm really hoping for a happy year and I'm working to make it that way. Happy 2013 to you Claire!

  7. January is a wired month, I feel tired all the time!

  8. I've noticed a few people in the Northern Hemisphere talking about the January Blues - I wonder if it's because of the cold? I've never felt it before.

    I do agree with you though, I know some people who are happiest being unhappy (as odd as that sounds).
