This Grand Adventure: Chelsa-Bea: Happiness

March 14, 2014


Some really cool things happened yesterday with work, life and the blog that I never expected. It was sort of crazy that they all occurred in one day but I’m taking it as a win. It was just the kind of day I needed to remind myself why I work so hard. I wish I could have bundle it up, hide it away, and bring it out again when I’m doing the self-doubt, insecure, feeling shitty about myself and life thing. It was pretty incredible and I’m totally pinching myself that any of it even happened.

I do need to confess something. I get really nervous sometimes when good things happen because I fear I will jinx myself. Isn’t that terrible?! I worry that if I enjoy it too much or get too excited or share it with others that it will disappear or something bad will happen. I realize this is totally ridiculous but I was almost afraid to even write this post in fear that it would make all the good things that happened yesterday fall apart. But, I did share because fears are ridiculous and meant to be concurred.

So, now that you listened to my silly tangent I will share with you this awesome Pharell song that I played on repeat last night in my living room while I hosted a little dance party for myself. It makes me so happy and I hope it does the same for you!

Hope you all have a fabulous weekend! Xoxo!

p.s. Happy Pi Day! In honor of it, here's my favorite pie recipe.


  1. Happy (almost) weekend, Chelsea! Congratulations on ALL the good things happening in one day! Isn't that amazing? I had a similar day like that this week that just blew me away... and while I was thrilled out it, like you, I'm always afraid I'm going to jinx the good that's happening in my life. So it's not silly. (Or at least you're not alone.)

    Here's to an amazing weekend!

    1. Thanks, Erin! It's comforting to know I'm not alone. Hope you had a wonderful weekend.

  2. I play this song loudly and dance around our kitchen/living room when I'm happy, or when Jack & Rory need cheering up :) so glad you had a happy day! Did you see the 100 Days of Happy challenge I'm doing on instagram/facebook? When you look for the good in every day, it makes the not so good easier to bear - xo!

    1. I love this song. I need to check out your 100 Days of Happy challenge. I've noticed it popping up around the blogosphere. Thanks again, Kristy.

  3. 1. I want to know what the heck happened. So sue me. I'm a curious lil cat.

    2. yay for the pharell song. you put it on repeat as long as you want, girl

    3. I literally never mention good news out of fear that it won't go as planned. Then I read a self-help book that said that doing so causes you to ignore your emotions and you actually enjoy the event LESS when it DOES happen, because you sort of pre-numbed your feelings.

    So.. share away.


    1. 1. I'll share soon enough. Promise.
      2. No matter how many times I seem to play it, this song still makes me smile and want to dance my pants off.
      3. It's nice to know I'm not the only one and your self-help book has some good advice. I've written it down so I keep reminding myself of this.
