My Smash Book of Happiness
Recently, I’ve had some tiny bits of depression, and along with said depression, came an extreme desire for suicide. Which obviously is not good. So, in an attempt to fight my depression, and avoid having to involve medical professionals, I decided to focus on the happy, the good, and the positive things. Hence I started a Happy Book on tumblr. Which was alright and nice. But what I really wanted was something tactile, something in the real world, and possibly something private where I can record my thoughts.
Me, being the impulsive shopper that I am, bought myself a Smash Book earlier today. It was just a impulse buy, but by the time I got home, I knew this book was going to be my happy book.
The book doesn’t follow any specific theme. I have set aside a two page spread for the insane nonsense that my best friend and I get up to via Skype and Facebook chat, another spread for my love of astronomy & stargazing, and then? It’s a free for all. I’ll fill the pages as I go along. I might dedicate a page to the Venus transit, considering the astronomy folks here are making it into quite a big deal.
For Smash Book/scrapbook/journal ideas and inspiration, check out the Smash Book blog. Or just stick around here. I might share a few pages here and there.
