Inspiration. There are days when it is hard to find, times when it merely blinks from across the room, mysterious and elusive. One way to find yours is to seek out others who do the same. I find that whenever my inspiration level is low, I spend some time with people who choose to make their lives about pursuing their dreams. Whether in real life or in articles I read online, these folks give me that extra dose of motivation I need to remember my path, embrace my passion, and find my happy place.

Carla De La Cruz is one such person. Starting out as an architect, De La Cruz realized her “happy place” was making jewelry and gave herself permission to pursue it. (This is the key, don’t you think? Letting ourselves pursue such things.) Carla De La Cruz Jewelry is simple yet unique, sophisticated and whimsical, elegant and carefree. These pieces make your outfit, let me tell you. I’m pretty sure that wearing a piece from Carla De La Cruz Jewelry guarantees finding your “happy place.”

    My happy place is the beach…it’s beautiful, far from school and normal life stress, and the smell of the sea is a breath of relaxation for me. 🙂

    My happy place is wherever there is so little light pollution that you can clearly see the stars on a warm summer’s night. It’s hard to find these days, but I could just lay on a blanket with my man and dream as we stargaze. Such happy perfection.

    My happy place is a small beach in Florida on the Gulf of Mexico. What happens there? Relaxation, rejuvenation and peacefulness.

    My happy place is home. All the fun, love, madness and cuddles happen there with my two little hooligans and my wonderful hubs.

    my happy place is with my hunny either in the warm sun light, by water, or under a blanket of stars. I love a cool summer’s night with a nice glass of wine and memories of a great summer.

    My happy place is sharing and creating experiences with family and friends. Exploring the night sky, breathing in the ocean air, smelling a new opened blossom, working in the garden, cooking a delicious meal, and giving or getting a hug 🙂

    My happy place is with my boyfriend (who is also my best friend) on this area of beach near my parent’s old house. We bask in the sunshine, laugh and look for sea treasures washed up on the beach.

    My happy place is the Kimball Art Museum in Ft. Worth, TX. I’ve loved it ever since I first visited it probably 20 years ago, and as an undergraduate at TCU I would go there to study and give myself a little quiet time. As a 35 year-old now, I love to go there to share the beauty of the art in its permanent collection with people I love.

    My happy place can be almost anywhere, as long as I have a great book to read.  I’ve had the same happy place since I was 6!

    my happy place is…and i feel a little silly saying this…disneyworld. i go there with my bestie, to hang and relax and it really is as if they know you and want you to be happy there. it feels like a vacation from the real world in a way that exotic vacations (also wonderful) can’t offer. and i don’t have to worry about cars, or translating languages or…it’s just happy. they mean it when they say “the happiest place on earth.”

    My happy place is Kapalua Bay in Maui, Hawaii. It’s a cute beach that has a cove so the waves that come in are calm. The snorkeling is fantastic and there’s always somewhere to lay your towel out and lie under the sun. It’s my happy place because my family always visits that beach when we vacation in Maui, and it’s the beach we always spent time at when I was little. The water is comfortable, there are tide pools, and the trade winds are so calming….I wish I could go there right now!

    A field. Any open and quiet field where I can let everything go and smell the grass. I would love to just go and sit for hours but I have small babies and getting away is rare.

    My back deck – with the sun shinning, a good book and a glass of wine!! Who wouldn’t be happy.

    I found my happy place in a library when I was 8. I can go anywhere, do anything and be anyone when I read. It built my imagination and self confidence and I still find today (some 20 years later) that a good book can take me instantly out of any situation and to my ‘happy place’.

    Nikki says:

    I have told my husband of 17 years too many times to count, “you are my most favorite place on earth”.  With my head tucked into where his shoulder and chest meet, I feel safe and loved and utterly content. He feels good, and he smells fantastic, and no matter whatever else is going on around us, or wherever we physically are, I am never happier than in his arms.  Often I am being listened to share what is on my mind and in my heart, sometimes I am being reassured of my worries and anxieties, and always I am feeling supported and cared for–and I am also giving him love and support and encouragement. Lucky for me, being in the circle of my arms is his happy place too!

    My happy place is my bedroom at the end of the day. I love getting into bed at the end of a long day knowing I’ve spent the last several hours getting things done and now I finally get to rest. My whole body relaxes and by mind finally clears and its just calm happiness until I drift off to sleep.

    My happy place is with my best friends who I only usually get to see once a year, but when we do get to see each other it’s the best part of my year.

    Home, because that’s where I’m most comfortable, where there’s no one else but my family.

    The park with my husband and puppy. I love being outside!

    EB says:

    My happy place is the quiet living room in the evenings after I’ve put my kiddos to bed. I sit on the sofa under the warm lamp light and I knit with soft wool yarn and, stitch by stitch, re-organize my mind and let the stress of the day slip away through my fingers.

    Suzi says:

    My daughters bed. She’s 2.5yrs old and finally, I’m through my post natal depression. I can enjoy her company and she can enjoy mine. We lay in bed at the end of the day, she makes sure I’m covered in blankets and I do the same for her. We do “round and round the garden” on each others hands and then we read lots of books. She kisses me goodnight and the love just beams around us like some sort of computer game, perhaps the Sims.

    Anywhere she is, I’m happy. She is my happy place.

    Lauren P says:

    I’m at my happiest in my car with long stretches of road lying ahead. It started when I was 16: I’d pick up my best friend, Jen, and we would drive around the entire county. We talked about everything 16-year-old girls talk about, and when I came to a stop sign or light she yelled out either left, right, or straight. I’ve kept this happy place through college and grad school. Even now, my husband and I take long road trips (Michigan to Florida and back again). I just love being in the car with nothing but possibility down the road.

    my happy place is anywhere my mom, dad and brother are. my brother and i both “moved out” to pursue our careers and adulthood and it’s rare that we’re all together now. we are a very close family and have so much fun when we’re together. we won’t be together for easter this year, but we’re hoping to spend some time together in the summer!

    Sara Moulton says:

    My happy place is the beach, especially in the summer when the sun feels warm.  For the rest of the year, my happy place is my room, specifically my bed.  I really enjoy laying there and relaxing.

    Home in my pajama pants. That means it is time to relax, work on my own projects, and get comfy with my husband.

    My happy place is the top of a mountain, after having spent hours hiking up it. There is no better feeling of accomplishment and love of life than after climbing up a 14,000+ ft mountain and seeing the world spilled out around you down below.

    My happy place is my childhood neighborhood in Boston.  While my family moved away  about 20 years,two of my oldest and dearest friend still live there.  I love going back to a place that, while completely different now,  still feels the  way it did when I was a child.
