How do you measure your happiness?

I was having a chat with one of my performer friends recently and she said she’d recently had a realisation. She has become aware that she measures her happiness on how successful she is at the time.

We’re ENGAGED!

So as many of you are most definitely aware, on the 22nd February 2019 Bobby asked me to marry him and I said YES! What a weekend that was!
