Today our friends made it away from the orc battlefield and into the Northern Mountains. They are starting to cross through the mountain in a forgotten city that once held a population made up of humans, elves, gnomes and dwarves all living in peace. The group is wondering why they knew nothing about a city like this and why it had been kept from them, but unbeknownst to them, a new threat lies in the distance. That threat will begin to show it’s face in tomorrow’s writing! Have a great night!
I can remember a lot of things that made me happy when I was growing up as a kid. Whether it was playing my old Nintendo system or riding a bike or playing football with my brother, I was normally a pretty happy kid. As I’ve gotten older, I have seen those things transition into something else. My happiness is less based on what I do for myself these days and more based on what I do for my family.
It’s kind of weird how things change as you get older. Small things used to make me excited like a party or holiday for instance, but now it’s the light in my daughters eye that makes me happy. I could care less for holidays or other special days of the year, but she gets excited about them and that makes everything great.
I also am finding more happiness for myself in my hobbies then I am my work. I have started looking into a new path that would excite me greatly if I could break into it. I’m not going to say a lot here and now, but I am excited for what the future might bring. My whole family is on board with this decision, so it could just be the breaking point I need to get out of my normal 9-5 and work creatively from home. I think that would make my ideal situation complete. I do enjoy my current job, but I just feel there is something more that I can do with my career then work for someone else.
I am trying my hardest this year to be a little more happy. I am seeing joy in things that I hadn’t before, simple things. I want to try to meditate, search for some peace that I have longed for.
Each person has their own definition of happiness. What is yours? What things do you do to make yourself happy?
Today I was able to write more on my short story about Dwarves making a journey across the realm. I will have more about the story as it goes on, but right now, this was my progress for today!
I’m not sure what took over me this day, but man was I happy that I was able to write this much. I think it’s single-handedly the most that I’ve done in a single day.
