Of happiness and Weekly Wrapup

21.05.2012 - 16:06

Leaves of lilies of the valley on Webbygram

Last week Instacanv.as opened my gallery. In the gallery I've chosen a bunch of my Instagram photos available as canvases. If you buy one, I'll be payed 20% of the sale.

So what does this have to do with happiness? Nothing and something. One of the Finnish words for happiness is onni, which also means (good) luck. Does luck have to do with happiness?

I'm not the happiest person ever. Not even close. I'm grumpy and stressed out and I feel the weight of the world on my skinny shoulders. Now I've decided there's time to change that.

I know it'll be a bumpy road. Life tends to send obstacles in the way. Economical obstacles, obstacles in the form of things happening as well as in the shape of other people. Anyways, to start with it, I'm not going to do as everyone expects me to. I'm going to do what I want and in the way I want.

What you perhaps missed last week (the Weekly Wrapup that is)

Suomeksi (In Finnish): 

Viime viikolla Instacanv.as avasi galleriani. Sen kautta voit ostaa joitakin Instgram kuviani, joita olen valinnut myytäväksi. Jos ostat niitä, saan 20% myyntituloista. Ja mitäs tekemistä tällä on onnellisuuden kanssa? No eipä mitään ja vähän jotakin. Suomen kielen sana onnihan tarkoittaa myös (hyvää) tuuria. Onko onnekkuudella tekemistä onnellisuuden kanssa? En ole maailman onnellisin enkä iloisin ihminen. Nyt pyrin muuttamaan tilannetta. Tiedän, että siitä tulee haastavaa, elämällä kun on tapana heittää kapuloita rattaisiin. Elämällä ja muilla ihmisillä. Eräs asia mitä aion tehdä on tehdä just niinkuin itse haluan sen sijaan, että tekisin sitä mitä minulta odotetaan. Yllä myös listattuna viime viikon bloggaukseni, ne jotka saatoit missata omissa kiireissäsi.
