Firstly, how cute is this picture!
Everybody goes through phases of being negative in their life, whether it's to do with school, family, friends, relationships... Anything, we can always put a bad spin on things in our heads if we're not having a good time in our lives. We need to start appreciating the things that we do have instead of dwelling on the things that we don't have. I for one definitely need to change the way I think about things some times.
Lorin at Curiously Lorin has set up a great idea of a Unicorn Campaign to get us to take more steps in life to be more positive in our everyday lives. The Unicorn Campaign is a symbol of happiness and will remind us to appreciate life a little more and to make us remember life doesn't always suck - It can be amazing. You just have to let it be amazing and yes, sometimes things go wrong but always try to look on the bright side.
To begin, 3 things that make me happy.
Family - I suppose we have never been the closest of families but as I've grown up I've realised they only want the best things in life for me. After making a lot of wrong decisions in my teenage years (and a few since), they have always been there, being supportive and helping me along the way.
Friends - Let's be honest I don't have many friends, I've always been a shy person so I didn't come out of school with many friends, just a small group who I don't talk to anymore. I have two best friends and they are the most amazing people and I'd rather have them in my life than lots of friends that I don't or can't trust.
My Mother - Now I know I've said family but my mom really is something special. She is the rock in our family; she can always make me smile no matter what has happened. She's done so much for my sister, my brother and I, and I don't think there is anything I could do in the world to thank her enough.
So, to join in and what to do.
