Happiness is... finding time to unwind

The month of October has been a period of relaxation and like the hubby said, a well-deserved break from work. Sure, you might argue, what work do I mean when I don't have a job and all I do is look after the kids and manage a house?  Well, I'm not going to repeat it again but you can read more about the truth of being a SAHM here.

We found time to visit Legoland, the Singapore Zoo and went on a vacation in Gold Coast (more to come on that soon, I promise!). Most importantly, I found time to sit back, unwind and simply enjoy some bonding moments with my loved ones. Wait, I'm not saying that you need to travel far in order to take a breather, nor do you need to spend a bomb just so you can relax.

Sometimes, it's all about stopping in your track, admiring the nature and appreciating all the goodness that surrounds you. Join me as I reminisce some of my favourite moments this month and ask yourself the same questions too.


When was the last time you...

...played with a ball?

...sat down doing nothing but relaxing?

... let yourself get all wet?

... listened to the sound of the ocean waves?

 ... took a jumping shot?

 .... or two?

 ... sat on a kiddy ride?

 ... and felt like a child at heart?

 ... looked at the beautiful colours of the sky?

 ... built something out of nothing?

 ... said these three words to someone you hold dear?

 ... blew the seeds of a dandelion?

... lay down on the grass and watched the birds soaring by?

 ...went barefoot and walked in the sand?

 ...stopped to look at your shadow?

 ... made your own special sandcastle?

 ... took time to smell the flowers?

 ... admired the lush greenery?

 ... sat down in the shade of a tree?

...paused in your track and thought for a moment: Am I living the life I want? Am I doing the things that I love? Am I happy?

When you get a chance to do that, I hope the answer is yes. Because life is too short and too precious to be wasted otherwise.

Let's all give a big smile today.
