[SUOMENKIELINEN VERSIO ONNELLISUUTENI
AAKKOSISTA ON LUETTAVISSA TÄÄLTÄ.]
Today, I decided to do a little different version of the theme day called Wednesday Wisdom.
That means that I’m going to share my alphabet of happiness with you lovelies.
I hope you enjoy and maybe even find something to think about!

A – ACCEPT
Accept yourself and others. Because when you do that, it’s the most beautiful gift you can give to another human being; the permission to feel safe, to feel worthy,
to feel like they are enough. And you’re enough.
And accepting life itself even though it’s sometimes SO hard to just accept
for example the end of something beautiful and move on. But when you accept something,
you realize that you feel light by letting go of something that no longer belongs to you.
B – BALANCE
It’s all about golden mean in everything; eating and training habits
-sometimes you eat salad and train hard but sometimes it’s hard to even get dressed.
But the most important thing is to be in balance with yourself.
C – CREATE
Creating (styling, writing, photographing) is like air to me; without it I wouldn’t be me.
D – DREAM
Dreaming is the best food for your soul; it nourishes the whole body.
E – EVERLASTING
For those who have followed this blog longer, also knows that I’m a believer.
It’s the thing that carries me in the bad days and good days.
F – FASHION
As Coco Chanel once put it: I don’t do fashion, I am fashion.
I think that fashion is the most powerful art there is.
G – GRATITUDE
Gratitude changes everything and is the magnet for miracles.
A magnet that turns fears into faith, emptiness into wholeness,
anxiety into peace and sadness into happiness.
H – HAPPINESS
Without gratitude you can’t be happy.
Being happy isn’t the hard form of science, it’s just up to us.
And being happy doesn’t mean that everything is perfect or happy all the time
-it just means that you’ve decided to look beyond those things because life isn’t never perfect.
I – INSIDERS (AKA FAMILIES)
I have an honour to have my amazing loved ones in my life and they’re all my family because families are forever and it has nothing to do with the blood bonds only.
And every single day, I am amazed by these people.

J – JOURNEY (AKA LIFE)
Trusting your own journey and life itself. Believing that no matter what happens, it’ll be OK
because everything happens for a reason. And having a positive attitude no matter what happens because –as Charles R. Swindoll once put it
– life is 10% what happens to you
and 90% how you react to it.
K – KINDNESS
The thing is that I care. A lot. Kindness is kinda the thing I do most.
I throw it around. A lot. Because it creates magic.
L – LOVE
Love is a magical thing. It’s kinda our superpower;
we can spread it around like confetti and it still never ends.
We don’t need to search for it because it’s already inside us.
And it’s everything we need.
M – ME, MYSELF & I
The one thing that nobody else has is you. And the only thing you have to live in is your body.
So take care of yourself, love yourself and accept yourself. Stay positive.
Treat yourself like your best friend and be careful
how you talk about yourself -especially because you’re listening.
N – NATURE(L)
Within nature lies the cure for anything.
And about naturel: I believe it’s the way to go,
being naturel without needing to be something you’re not.
And in beauty too; I hardly use any make-up but when I do,
I like to look just like me.
O – OPENNESS
To be able to open your heart after everything you’ve been through is hard.
Really hard. But by opening your heart, you might find something even better.
And openness itself is the way to go;
you get to hear other people’s stories when you tell yours first.
P – PARENTHOOD
Our little boy means everything to me
and every single day he taughts me how to be a better human being.
Q – QUOTES
I absolutely l-o-v-e quotes -from the big names and also from not-so-familiar-names.
You know those words which will live inside you
-encouraging and inspiring you over and over again.
R – RELAXING
I always make sure that there’s a time for just myself and relaxing.
Because it keeps me going without getting too stressed out and makes me a better me.
S – SOUNDS
Music on, world off is my motto.
Music means a lot to me and it has a healing power.
And other sounds too; like a rain, ocean or bird singing.
T – TRAINING
To me, a movement is a medicine and that’s why I’m a lover of training
and mostly I do it because it makes me feel good instead of making me look good.
U – UNIQUE
Our superpower is that we are all different.
As Elizabeth Gilber put it; embrace the glorious mess that you are.
V – VIRTUAL WORLD (AKA WWW)
Hahah 😀 But this virtual world, Webilization, is awesome.
W – WRITING
I love to write and that’s why I’ve been dreaming of writing even a book someday.
And because I love writing, it was only a natural decision to start writing this blog five years ago.
X – XMAS
Christmas is the most magical time of the year.
Y – YUMMY (AKA FOOD)
I really enjoy eating a good, nourishing, food and feeling the energizing power of it.
ZZZ – SLEEPING
There was a time when I didn’t enjoy sleeping and that’s why I slept only a couple of hours per night.
But nowadays, it’s kinda a form of relaxing and I really enjoy it
(sometimes even a little too much, hahah! :-D).
What’s your alphabet of happiness?
Share it via comment, e-mail or on your own blog!
I’m looking forward to it!☺
