YOU ARE RESPONSIBLE FOR YOUR HAPPINESS x HOW TO STYLE YOUR POLKA DOT


Lately, I am learning few life lessons that ages ago if I was told about this basic principles I would only take it at face value. One of those lessons I will share with you today and that is being responsible for your happiness. Happiness is a state of being happy often associated with contentment, satisfaction, cheerfulness, merriment, joy, well-being, etc (thank you Google). Among the list mentioned in the last sentence we often times associate with material things or money and yes money and the good things in life matter, but it does not bring you to the state of happiness. 

I have been going through a tough time lately with raising my tuition, but I have slept the best, done my school work with a clear head and have not had to worry. The bible lays emphasis on this in two books Luke and Mathew and today for this lets look at Luke 12:25-31 (NIV) "Who of you by worrying can add an hour to your life? Since you cannot do this little thing, why do you worry about the rest?" the passage goes on to explain that even the other things added to the world like flowers and bird are taken care of and how more about us created in God's image?. 

Since I came to the real understanding of that verse which took forever, I have found myself in this cheerful or happy state where I do not think so much about tomorrow because tomorrow will take care of itself.




 Today's Outfit:
The internet over the past few days have opened up discussions on being truthful about this fashion or blogging journey which people have taken out of hand, context and reality. First, I will love to add that this life isn't to please anyone but God and yourself and sometimes family because they count. Outside this group of persons any pressure you put on yourself to conform becomes a bad thing (simply put). 

Outfit:
Thrift

I was gunning for a vintage look, and what better way than to color blog in polka dot. Polka dot is always a trusted entry way to a vintage glam. what are your thoughts?

  3. Re:worrying - No truer words. Life is a stirring pot with it's ladle constantly changing direction at intervals. My anxiety has greatly reduced since last year and I'm hoping to become more verbal about my beliefs and interpretations of the word can greatly influence my reality and the people in it.

  4. You've said it all and I couldn't agree more. Anxiety leads us nowhere and Money is not the source of true happiness. I only wish people realize this more often.

    I'm starting to have a thing for Polka dots and I love how simple this look is.

    The God that made it possible for you to get to the States will help you cater for your tuition and other expenses.

    There's an article that talks more about finding Happiness that I enjoyed reading and I'll love to share with youif you don't mind - https://www.jw.org/finder?wtlocale=E&docid=102018015&srcid=share

  7. Yes, slayonce! Love the outfit as usual, and I also loved the topic you talked about. I'm understanding more that we have the power to choose, and we can choose to be joyful even when there are storms around us. Life will never be perfect, and that's why we can't be unhappy with life because we'll be unhappy almost 24/7. We have to trust that God will always come through even when it's hard to see. Thank you for sharing Grace. I love connecting with my Bible sisters hahaaa (p.s: I'm really not weird).
