Letter to my girl #15: You Are My HAPPY! :)

Dear Lil Pumpkin,

I think there's a lot of sites and articles teaching people how to be happy. Mummy likes to read them to find inspiration on how to make the best out of life, and be happy... especially on days when I feel like well, life sucks.

I've tried stuff like writing down things that I'm thankful for, meditation, living healthy, committing to my goals, smiling more often, being around positive people etc etc. Some work and some didn't work so well.

But, I've found that the one thing that always works for me is... being with you.

My dear, you truly, deeply, completely makes me happy :) No matter how dead tired I am, or how lousy my day was, whenever I see your cute face {and quirky antics!}, I can't help but break into a smile and be happy.

Yup, there are times when you drives me reeeeeaaaaallly crazy {like when you keep repeating the same requests over and over again when we've already replied yes or no} but there's really no stopping my love for you. It's amazing what positive effect you have on me.

Yet, I don't think it's just me, because I can see that you just make everyone around feel happy!! Yes, even that drink stall uncle that sees you once in a while when we go breakfast together at Mummy's workplace. You can see how he lights up when he meets you too. And trust me, he doesn't do that often haha.

That's quite a big achievement for such a little kiddo and really, I want to be like you in this aspect... to bring happiness to everyone I meet. Gotta work on that but really, thank you for being my little 开心果 and cheerful bundle of joy everyday.

Love always,


I Blog on Tues with Essentially Jess.

I love this so much. My kids drive me nuts sometimes, too, but I wouldn't change a thing!

Stacy said...

"You are my happy". Love that title, Ai.

For myself, I'm over the self-improvement stage (old already, or maybe just lazy!) where I read motivation stuff. Now I just try to do more of what I like - go on trips, eat at nice places, buy things, hehe. Limiting factors being mainly time (coz need to work) and energy (sometimes need to do nothing).

So, so sweet! Kids are definitely a parents "happy". Even when they are bad, my kids will always be my happy too.

Susan said...

Little Pumpkin sure is a happy going girl and I love how carefree she is with how she expresses her love for you. It's true that they can sometimes get annoying with their endless questions but I'll never trade them in the world for any other way :)

She looks so happy and quirky too.
My 3 year old was singing all the way through the supermarketing this morning and got so many compliments on how happy she is...a good lesson for me, I think.

Unknown said...

Naw, so sweet! She is a little character by the look of your photos. My boys are my happy and my "drive me nuts"! #teamIBOT

Ai Sakura said...

Masshole Mommy: Yeah! :)

Stacy: I think doing what you like requires a lot of courage too. Sometimes we tend to care about everyone else, but neglect ourselves :P

Theresa: Glad you think the same way too!

Susan: At least it shows that she's inquisitive and wanting to learn :P

Wendy: Aww I love hearing kids sing!

Sophie: You have such cute boys! :)

Little pumpkin is looking so cute with the glasses! She sure is a happy pill for you.

How sweet!

Last night I got home, and it was surreal. Daddy picked the boys up, and took them to a meeting he thought was going to last an hour. It was disorganized, and it lasted much longer than he thought. I missed them so much. The house didn't seem the same without them.

When I was a teenager, my mum would often take me to my sisters if I wasn't well and she had to go to work. My nephews always made me feel better, every time.
Some people just have the ability to light up the world don't they? :)

Grace said...

Naw, that's such a gorgeous letter, Ai. And OMG, I so know what you mean about repeating the same request over and over and OVER again! Enough already!
Cute glasses :) x
