40 Things That Make Me Happy

I've had a pretty rough week. No need to go into why because it's just a lot of small things that have happened on top of other annoyances and blah blah blah. It just hasn't been the best week and even though I try to always look for the good in things and find that silver lining, and generally succeed, sometimes it's hard to just keep being optimistic. So, I like to make lists of things that make me happy sometimes when I'm not in the best spirits. I don't exactly know why it does but it generally makes me feel a little better to make random lists of things that bring me joy. Which is what this post will be about. :) I'm going to see if I can get to 40.

Things That Make Me Happy:

  • Hockey. (Some days it makes me feel murderrageface but I still love it.)
  • Warm showers.
  • Music.
  • Hugs.
  • Long walks.
  • Trips to the art museum.
  • Text messages.
  • Dancing.
  • Ice cream.
  • Sketching.
  • Sunshine and cool breezes.
  • Books.
  • Paintball.
  • Comic books/graphic novels.
  • Racing go-karts.
  • Batman anything.
  • Sleeping in.
  • Cooking and baking.
  • Writing.
  • Laying in bed watching movies with Shane all day.
  • Thunderstorms.
  • Baseball.
  • Going to concerts.
  • Lazy Sundays.
  • Puppies.
  • Watching my little brother play hockey.
  • Hanging out with my siblings.
  • Doctor Who.
  • Bubbles.
  • Going to the driving range.
  • Coffee.
  • Long conversations with lots of laughing.
  • Forehead kisses.
  • Disney movies. (Aladdin is my favorite, in case you were curious. ;))
  • Ice skating.
  • Shoulder & back massages.
  • Pixar movies.
  • Swimming.
  • Playing board games.
  • Sunday brunch with friends.

That's 40!

Also, in doing this, I finally realized why this list thing I do helps me feel better. It helps remind me about all the things in life I have to be happy about. I have so many interests and hobbies. There's just so much about life that I enjoy seeing and doing. Making lists of those things reminds me that I have a lot I enjoy and a lot that makes me smile. Which makes bad days seem less awful because I know I have things to look forward to. Plus, I just really like making lists, haha. :)

Happy Thursday!

We loved reading this. We love random positivity in general, but such an awesome, clearly well-thought-out list was great. Reading what makes our friends happy in turn makes us happy. Thank you for sharing your forty things. :)

I totally agree with almost everything on the list. I mean, I would go see your little brother play hockey and it would probably make me happy, but not like it makes you happy. I hope this week is better for you...
