Do What Makes You Happy | The Positivity Diaries

I really hope you're all doing good and have had brilliant weeks. Even if they haven't been brilliant I hope that you managed to see all the tiny little good things that I promise were still there ! Here's my positivity diary for this week :)



Monday : Me and my best friend went to the cinema and I had such a brilliant time ! I haven't been this happy in ages and the film was brilliant ! If you get the chance to go see " Daddy's Home " then go, it's an hilarious comedy .

Tuesday : I got an my results back for my psychology mock exams and got an A !

Wednesday : I decided to make the changes necessary to make my life something that makes me happy by getting rid of everything that makes me miserable. So today instead of doing to debating after college I went to the new creative writing enrichment and had a great time and even made a few new friends , which was one of my goals for the new year so wooo.

Thursday : We started discussing the next book we're studying in English Literature , I always love hearing how even interpreted the book. At the minute we're studying Atonement and It's such an interesting book, I'd recommend it to anyone !

Friday : I spent a couple of hours with my best friend re-watching episodes of Orange Is The New Black :)

Saturday : I've cleared out loads of my stuff to send to the charity shop and have finally got a moving date !

Sunday : Finished off making the smartie filled cupcakes me and my best friend started making yesterday , the taste SOOOOO good .

This week I've really focused on getting rid of the things in my life that just don't make me happy because I've realised that I ( and everyone else ) deserves to live life feeling happy, strong and determined but most of all, full of enthusiasm . I'd love to hear all about the good things that have happened to you this week in the comments ! I really enjoyed reading through our little communal positivity diary in the comments of last weeks post :)

Stay Strong <3 Stay Smiley :) 

Lots of love, Marianne xxx

  2. Funny how I was also thinking about getting rid of things in my life that are pulling me down. I was remembering some episodes from years ago which seemed really important at that time but were making me unhappy. And I thought how good it is that it's in the past now.

    As for my week, I've baked a banana bread on Monday and another apple pie today, and it turned out even tastier than last week. :) And we've celebrated Ukranian Christmas, it was nice seeing my relatives. Oh, and I've finally finished reading Gone with the Wind which is probably the longest book I've ever read. :)

    1. It's strange how people end up doing these things around the same time, it's such an important thing though and I'm determined to make myself happy now :) That sounds yummy I LOVE apple pie it just tastes all warm and homely :) I hope you had a great Christmas I always forget people have it at different times <3 How was gone with the wind I've been thinking about reading it ? :)

    2. I loved the book, although some parts were a bit hard to read and the ending was not quite what I expected, but still it was a great read. =)

    1. I just thought that if I shared my positivity diary with the blogging community then we could all use the comments to talk about the good things that happened to us in the week and build up this big collection of happy things :)

    I have heard mixed opinions of Daddy's Home - so it looks like I'm going to have to go see it and make my own mind on it :)

  14. Go Marianne! I think it's so important to get organized and clear things out that you don't either love or that don't have a place in your life anymore! Way to go, your week sounds wonderful, productive and full of love and happiness, which is everything you deserve! I hope you are doing well my beautiful friend! XO -Kim
