It’s extraordinary how much your life can change in a few days, Happies. On Friday, I was bounding around the office, checking my emails every 2 minutes, and worrying about the stresses of everyday life. Right now, I’m sitting in a delightful hotel room in KL, Malaysia, on my first official day of International Happiness Seeker; Global Traveller; New York Editor of PRIMPED.com.au. No stresses, no emails that urgently need to be replied to, no office.
I’ve spent many hours writing about beating your fears, embracing your passions and following your dreams here on The Happiness Cocktail. And all of them have stemmed from the point I am standing in right now. It’s hard to imagine that for the next nine months I will have complete freedom to travel the globe and embrace my true passions, and I’m finding the adjustment period a little strange, if the truth be told.
But, there’s definitely something to be said about powering up your positive affirmations and truly working towards your goals – if you want them to happen badly enough, they most definitely will, Happies. That, I can assure you.
To honour that (and prove my point), I am dedicating the next nine months of my life to searching out what happiness truly means. Both to me, and to people all over the globe. From the street hawkers in KL, to the island inhabitants of Croatia, to Italians, Greeks, Turkish and finally, Americans – I want to know what makes them smile, laugh, love and live for. And I can’t wait to share that with you, Happies.
