Happiness quite unshared can scarcely be called happiness; it has no taste. (Emily Brontë)
The holiday season is officially over and I am slowly returning to a more regular blogging schedule. But the last days have been gloomy and dismal and it was painful to see 2015 commencing with such sadness and insanity. I was aggrieved by the latest terror attacks in Paris, a city I call my second home for quite a few years now. But then yesterday I could see the sun rise again: millions of people stood up in France and expressed their voice against terror and racism. And then again I could feel the happiness returning to my heart. Slowly but surely.
I've had enough time to think about this new year that has dawned upon us. It is still a young year and yet we've seen so much craziness that has made me feel adrift in the unpredictable waters of this planet we call home. To be honest, it reminded me how small we are and how fragile our world can be. But it has also reminded me how much power and goodness lies in all of us and that we can unite for the good cause.
In 2015 more than ever before I want to contribute to share more happiness for we all deserve a happy place to live and thrive. Even though writing this blog is anything but significant for the happiness out there, it is my mission to bring happiness into the world through my everyday being - here on the blog and in my offline life as well.
For the blog 2015 will be a year of change. I've been working hard with a small and fine team of creatives over the past months to bring Happy Interior Blog to a new level. I feel like after more than 3 years this blog has grown and matured, a little bit like myself, my sense of style, my appreciation for design and also my expectations from myself. This natural process of growing older needs to be visualized as well and very soon I will be launching a new Happy Interior Blog, that will be a platform for interiors, travels and plants. A platform with a mission: to share happiness through visual beauty. Please let me know if you have any suggestions or wishes for Happy Interior Blog in 2015 in the comments, I am happy for any new idea or impetus.
With the new blog I will also elevate my standards - I want to share genuine, authentic content with better photography, better texts, with more value. I will not focus on quantity but quality. I want to inspire you to reinvent your homes, to travel and see the world, to love and cherish plants. I want to make you discover the happiness that lies all around us in our daily life. More than ever in this year 2015 that has started with so much negativity and terror. We all deserve a better and happier world. Let us all work on that. My humble digital contribution will be a better Happy Interior Blog.
