Happiness Matters

Whether you’re just starting in life or you’ve been around the block a few times, happiness matters. 

A lot of us spend our days stressing about everything going wrong in our lives, but instead we should be counting our lucky stars that we are surrounded by amazing people who love and care about us.


Okay, so you didn’t get that promotion this time, doesn’t mean you won’t in the future! And, you like your job as it is anyway – so relax.

So you didn’t do anything this weekend – you’re going to that incredible festival next month, so look forward to it!

Your partner is being moody with you – but the other day they cooked you a lovely romantic dinner, things can’t be that bad.

What I’m trying to say is: we shouldn’t take our lives and our happiness for granted because one day it might all change. We should enjoy the lives with have and love the people that love us.


Life Lessons from ‘Friends’ Episodes


Never betray your friends.  Friendships are beautiful relationships in your life. Your friends are important to you and you are important to them.

Technology isn’t important. When do they ever focus on the latest technology? Never. Technology fads will come and go – but life is still there when the internet connection goes.

Fashion isn’t everything. We see so many fashion changes throughout the show, and none of them stick (except the little black dress.)

Don’t judge people by their past. Episode one – Rachel shows up in a wedding dress and seems like the most spoiled little rich girl in the world. By the end of the show, she is a mother, in love and pursuing her dream career. Forgive your past trespasses and forgive others for their past. People can change.

Finance sucks.  They are always broke and manage to cope. They thrived in fact.
