Lifestyle | 8 Photos Of Happiness Tag

Even though I wasn't nominated by anyone to do this tag, I have seen it floating around the blogging community and seeing as I'm all about positivity and I'm a lover of photography, I thought I'd do it!

Here are the rules:

1) Thank your nominator/s and link them in the post
3) Post your 8 photos of happiness - the photos can be anything that represents a moment, object, place or feeling that makes you happy.
4) Pop in a brief description of the photo, why you chose it or just let the photos do the talking!
5) Spread the happiness and tag up to ten other bloggers!

1) This has got to be one of my favourite photos that I've ever taken. It was from my holiday to Lanzarote in April 2014. I went with my family for 2 weeks and I honestly had a wonderful time. Many precious memories were made throughout the time I was there and I shall treasure those forever. Holidays are one of the happiest times for me and I don't think many things will ever compare.
2) The boy in this photo is incredibly important to me. Not only is he my boyfriend, but he is also my best friend and my favourite person in the entire world. He is so much more to me than just a boyfriend. I have known him since February 2014 and even though we lost contact until August 2014, I'm so grateful that we met again. I have gone through many unpleasant things throughout my life and the past year and a half, but you have been there through everything. You have been my absolute rock through thick and thin. I know we have been on and off for the past 11 months, but I wouldn't have it any other way. We have so many memories and I shall keep them in my heart forever. I will always hold a special place for you, Charlie. I love you unconditionally.
3) Ever since I was a little girl, I have always loved Devon. My grandma's sister used to live there until recently and because we knew she was moving, we visited her one last time back in August 2014. We went around the town, to a carnival and to a couple of different beaches, along with a train ride through the bumpy streets. Although the weather wasn't amazing, it was lovely to be able to get a break and a change of scenery. The beach has always been something I love. I walked up to the top of 'Lantern Hill' and took this photograph at the top of it. I think it's honestly so beautiful.
4) This is a photo of myself and one of my best friends Tara. Ever since I started secondary school back in 2012, I have struggled immensely with settling in and finding true friends. I have always been very quiet and shy, so it hasn't been the easiest of times. However, Tara has been an incredibly precious friend for the past few months, maybe even a year or so. She is so lovely to talk to and she always makes me smile whenever I'm around her! I think we have similar personalities so it allows us to get on better. I really value her and our friendship and I love her very much. 
5) Sunsets are one of my favourite things in the world. I find them so fascinating and peaceful and whenever I catch one, I always end up thinking deep thoughts. I posted this picture on Instagam a couple of weeks ago, introducing my positivity project called 'Spread The Sunshine'. I thought that it fitted perfectly with the theme of positivity and happiness. The sunlight is streaming through the trees, which I thought symbolised how happiness can be spread anywhere and everywhere. The project is really important to me and I am a strong believer of positivity so it all links together!
6) Another very special person in my life is Tia. I have known this girl for many months now and she is honestly such an important part of my life. She has been there through everything and she has been the girl that I always turn too whenever I need support, laughter or a shoulder to cry on. We experienced quite a traumatic event together last year, but it just made our friendship closer. She is the little sister that I never had and I love her dearly. All of our memories are just endless and priceless too. Our inside jokes could also go on for years! Her and her mum equally mean a lot to me and they both hold a very special place in my heart.
7) This photograph represents both my love and appreciation for photography and nature. I have always loved flowers, nature and parks as I used to help my grandma with the gardening when I was little and we used to always go to the park too. Even now, I still go to the park and woodland areas with my friends and I'm constantly taking scenic pictures whenever I get the chance! Photography is a huge passion of mine and I try to capture as many moments as I possibly can.

8) No 'photos of happiness' tag would be complete without a photo of my grandma in it. She is the most inspirational, beautiful, kind-hearted, thoughtful, positive woman I have ever known in my entire life. Never does a day go by where she doesn't have a smile on her face. She is always doing things for other people and putting her loved ones before herself. She is the one person who has mostly influenced who I am today. I can never thank her enough for all that she has done. She has taught me right from wrong, hundreds of sayings and mottos, to respect myself and my body and to believe that I can do anything if I put my mind to it. I look up to her and aspire to be like her more than I do any other woman. I am the luckiest girl in the world to have such a wonderful grandma like her and I love her with every single piece of me and I shall until the day I die.
I would like to nominate:
These photographs all mean a lot to me and they all have important reasons behind them. I could have chosen many others, I'm sure, but these are my top favourites. Although I have more friends and family, these were my favourite photos that I could find. However, I do just want to say thank you so much to each and every one of my friends for being there through thick and thin, you know who you are. And a huge thank you to my family for putting up with me all these years. I don't know how you do it! Every person in my life is precious to me, and I am grateful for all of you, I really, truly am.
