What’s made me happy

candyfloss hairIt’s time for a look back on the month to see what’s made me happy, and my main happiness creating thing has been my pink hair! I blogged about my new look before, but the long and short of that post was that I’m finding having pink hair has made me feel like me again. I feel like my outside represents my inside much more now thanks to the wonders of hair dye and piercings!

Speaking of piercings, something that has started making me happy over the past day or two is my plan to get either a daith or rook piercing. In fact I spent my many waking hours last night pondering which to get and getting more and more excited about it! I probably wont be able to afford to get a new piercing until just before Christmas but I am already psyched for it!

My weight loss has been making me very happy lately too; I’ve lost my first stone! Woohoo! Go me! I look in the mirror now and I can see the difference, my clothes either fit better or are too loose, I am getting my shape back, the hourglassish figure I used to have. Sure, it’s hard work and it’s something I’m going to have to keep up forever (the healthy eating, I’m not doing a set diet), but it’s worth it.

And finally, Samhain (Halloween) is making me happy! Well, excited! It’s my favourite sabbat, I adore the atmosphere and feelings that surround it. Somehow the thinning of the veil makes me feel safe, protected, maybe because my lost loved ones are that bit closer. I have no plans, as usual, for Samhain, but it still feels special to me, even just sitting in my room I feel connected to my spirituality and my ancestors.

What’s been making you happy?
