Spread the love

Hey guys what is up?! Firstly HAPPY NEW YEAR!!!If you are reading this then I’d like us both (me and you) to thank God that we’re still both alive and I wish you all the best for 2017. Let this be your year. So yes I know collabmas is over but today I have another collaboration just to kick start the year. I am collaborating with Jessytee and we have decided to help you guys with the upcoming year.

So I’ve decide to help you be happy and have no worries.


1. Speak your mind.

I always used to hear that people who spoke their mind were much more happier and that couldn’t be much truer because if you speak your mind then you’re always worriless. You’re not holding any grudges and your mind is free. So this year learn to speak your mind and say what you want because then you’re free and you get to be who you are and people learn to see that person.

2. Cry it out.

Most of us feel like we always have to be strong and not show people our weaknesses but that’s not the case. This year learn to let people know of how you feel and don’t bottle up things because that means bringing stress and sickness. And when I say it’s okay to cru, I don’t mean actually crying but letting your emotions fall through and letting people actually see that side of you.

3. You don’t have to please anyone.

I know sometimes you feel like you have to suck up to people just because they are whoever they are but trust me you don’t. We are all human and the sooner you accept that then the sooner you can go out and know that the next person is as much a human as you are.

4. Have fun.

Fun doesn’t have to be going out with people and doing alcohol abuse, fun could be anything. Tell yourself that it’s okay to do fun things once in a while and that you don’t have to stay at home doing nothing. So go out with your friends or invite friends over and have a laugh. Also go to the fun, don’t wait for the fun to come to you.

5. Don’t expect anything.

If you don’t expect anything then you don’t get disappointed so teach yourself to not expect anything. Or if you do then expect the least because expecting the most is setting yourself up for sadness and dissapointment because you might not get anything. So live a life of non expectancy and a suprise when you do get something.

That ladies and gentlemen is how to be happy.

Okay so I’ve set up 5 things to make sure your 2017 is lit,I can come up with more and I’m sure Jessy Tee can too. Please go check out Jessytee’ post on her blog, she has a post on how to slay 2017 physically and emotionally.

Also add her on instagram @jessyteee_ she’s such an amazing person. I’d also like to thank her for agreeing to collaborate, it’s been really great and I’d really love to make friends with her.

    Fiгst off I want to sɑy еxcellent blog! I hɑd a quick question which I’d ⅼiкe to ask
    if you do not mind. I wɑs curious to know how you center yourself and
    clear your mind before writing. I’ve had a difficult tіme
    clearing my mind in getting my ideas out. I do enjoy wrіting but it just seems like the first 10 to
    15 minutes are lost simply just trying to figure out hоw to begin. Any
    suggеѕtions or hints? Thank you!

      Thank you so much for reading <3 What always works for me is doing something relaxing before writing, this can be listening to music or just making myself a cup of coffee. A tip is to always brainstorm what you want to write about, I normally open a word document and then write down the main points I would love to cover and then write little notes underneath until I know how I want to structure the post. Also writing doesn't have to be done all in one go, don't force it out of you! Write a few paragraphs, come back tomorrow edit the paragraphs and add a few more until the post is how you had envisioned it. Last one, have a purpose in your writing (answer the why), Its always hard to write about something when you have no idea the purpose behind it! I hope this helps. xo
