Day 12: The November Happiness Challenge
Happiness is a must in life. But what on earth is happiness? Some people are happy when they’ve made money, while others are happy when they’ve found their true love, As for me, I find bliss wearing stylish clothes and taking pictures in it.
Before you start wondering who this cloth freak is let me quickly introduce myself.
Hi everyone! I am Halima Mustapha, a modest fashion Influencer, fashion stylist, personal shopper and a modest fashion blogger. Guess you know why playing dress up makes her happy. Also I’m one of the great pioneer of the Omotolanie’s November Happiness Challenge. I guess I can call myself that after participating all through 2015 and 2016 November without missing a day. Clap for me guys!!!!
Everybody will have different definition of happiness and what it means for them to be happy. But why is happiness difficult to define, or rather discover and achieve? I think the major determinant lies in a person’s attitude. A person’s ability to achieve happiness is of their own free will to allow themselves to a moderate amount of the sense.
I’m a very happy person. People that know me or have met me personally know I’m always all over the place. My simple tricks to living a happy life is by WORRYING LESS. I don’t know how I came to get comfortable with this but I don’t easily let things get to me. If you worry less, you sure are going to live a happy life.
Since it’s all about Happiness this month on Omotolaniee.com , I’m going to be sharing those things I do that get me really Happy and excited. No doubt, different people have different ways of going about this task. I have two I will be highlighting below:
Wearing stylish clothes
: New clothes get me really excited, I know this might sound cliche. Everybody will be happy getting new clothes right? But In my case I’m always super happy not by just buying the clothes but putting it on, beating my face lightly and getting someone take me some great pictures. The ultimate happiness comes when I see the pictures, I get to look at the pictures for hours admiring my pretty self. Yes I’m that awkward but it makes me very very Happy!
This makes me really happy too and I don’t even club to start with. All I do is play that music, make it as loud as possible and if I don’t want to disturb anyone use my headphone, lock my room and dance till my body starts paining me, it gives me joy.
So today I would love you to try this out. You don’t necessary have to buy new clothes, dig out that cloth you love so much that is deep down your wardrobe. Yes! That one you have been keeping till President Buhari calls for a meeting.You don’t have to dress good to impress people only. Do it for you! Look good for you! Wear that cloth, have someone take your picture, if no one is available for that, stand in front of a mirror and admire yourself. Take some selfies and look through them to see how wonderful God has created you, I’m sure it will give you some sort of happiness.
That’s it guys! Catch me in the comment section of this blog every day of this month. I leave you with this happiness filled pictures of me , playing dress up and being fabulous while at it.
