33 Things to be happy about

I love talking about the little things that make me happy because sometimes I get in a funk and it's nice to be reminded of the things I should be thankful for, big or small, that make me smile.

1. A hot cup of tea (or coffee).
2. Planning a trip.
3. Pet snuggles.
4. Anything Disney.
5. Dancing like a maniac.
6. A nap where you don't wake up groggy.
7. Oxygen.
8. Making someone smile.
9. Things on sale.
10. Food.
11. Being excited for something.
12. A good hug.
13. A new baby.
14. A fabulous day with friends.
15. Pajamas.
16. Realising you have nothing planned and can relax.
17. Little kids with accents.
18. The sun.
19. A book you can't put down.
20. The word Serendipity.
21. A movie so good you don't look at your phone or laptop once.
22. The smell of bread.
23. When you can't help but sing along. Loudly.
24. Accomplishing something.
25. Getting paid.
26. Cats and dogs.
27. When a meal you cooked is better than you thought it would be.
28. Blogging.
29. Laughing, actually laughing.
30. When you realise you're over something you swore you'd never get over.
31. Writing lists.
32. Genuinely feeling happy for someone else.
33. Breathing.


There's lots to be happy about. Right now I'm really happy and excited for Europe. What are you happy about right now?

  2. Is it possible to wake up from a nap not feeling groggy?! ;) This is why I cannot take naps. They turn me into a bear.

  3. Haha, love this! There are so many things to be happy about! Hubs taking the poopy diaper so I don't have to change it. A great workout. Your favorite song coming on the radio juuuuuuust in time for you to finish it before you get to your destination. So many things!

  10. Totally agree that you gotta get yourself out of that funk with a list of happy things sometimes. Like Mondays. Mondays are funky. They need happy lists. I also love the smell of fresh bread, especially when my husband makes it. And coffee. Delicious coffee......

  12. have you ever read the Book of Awesome? It totally picks me up and reminds me that small things are totally awesome, like getting through the coffee line quickly or having delicious leftovers

  13. Love this positive post! Question: Do ALL little kids here have an "accent" to you?? Or are you used to the American accent enough that you don't think about it anymore? Plus...people in KY probably have a Southern accent...so even those kids would have an "accent" to me. Boggles the mind!!

  19. Naps, doggy cuddles, freshly baked cookies or brownies, #29 definitely, of course books, and so many other things on this list. It's a good idea to take stock of the things that make you happy so this idea makes me happy, too!

  20. I totally love dancing like a maniac. Sometimes when I'm alone in the house. I just pump some music and sing and dance around like I'm a huge pop star or something lol My boyfriend actually showed up at home and caught me once when I was doing a full choreographed routine haha I've been watching a lot of stand-up comedy lately and have found some good ones on Netflix that make me laugh until I cry. Love it!

  21. Hot tea is the best. Sometimes hot coffee is okay, but tea is my favorite. Always thankful for that. :]
