A simple truth in life is that if you are looking for things that make you happy you will think your life is good. If you're looking for the misfortunes in your life, you will think your life is bad. People who have nothing have been happy and think they have everything, even when extremely terrible things take place. On the other hand, those that have everything have often been unhappy. Look for the good in your life and count your blessings. Don't compare your life to anyone else, you can never measure up above everybody in every way. You often don't know what struggles others face and another's happiness or success should never diminish yours. Success, money, possessions and opportunities don't determine happiness; gratitude, perseverance and a cheerful heart do. So have sunshine in your soul today because there is always something to be happy about!
A company I found recently that I felt like I just had to wear on my blog is Noonday Collection! I love finding companies that work to give back instead of just working for profit. Not only is Noonday a great company, but their accessories and jewelry are absolutely gorgeous and each piece is so unique. They use fashion to "restore dignity to abandoned women in Ethiopia, empower communities in Ecuador, and create business opportunities for Ugandans". It's so cool that you can even see where your item was made and how it is benefitting and providing dignified, well-paying jobs to locals. That's definitely a company that embodies the idea of having sunshine in your soul! (P.S. Don't forget to scroll down to enter to win a $200 Nordstrom Gift Card!)
