50 Things That Make Me Happy

Happiness is something we all want in life. Happiness is something we all want to feel more of and never let it go. Happiness is something I felt like I could never experience again when I went through the year of hell last year. But happiness does exist and it does come back round even after the hardest times. Happiness is something I’ve felt so strongly this year and it’s made me feel so much better about living life again. 

When you go through hell and back, you grab that happiness with both hands and nurture it with all you have. You never take it for granted and you appreciate all those little moments because they mean a hell lot more than those ‘big fancy things’ that society tells us that they’re suppose to make us happy. Reality is these rarely bring us happiness or only can once. But each person has individual happiness within them and knows what or even whom makes them happy. Everyone’s is individual and personal to them. So here are 50 things that make me happy:

1. Fresh fruit smoothies 

2. Waking up and feeling so refreshed

3. Hitting publish on a new blog post

4. Morning cuddles with the one you love

5. Bike rides

6. McDonalds Mcflurry’s

7. Overcoming a fear

8. Laughing so much your belly hurts

9. Long hot bubble baths

10. Freshly painted nails

11. Baking cupcakes

12. Consuming said cupcakes

13. Deep chats at night

    Love this! This is always a good exercise to do as a blogger, I feel. It helps keep everything in perspective. That being said, playing sims and autumn leaves will definitely always make me smile. šŸ™‚ Julia | Julia in Bluhm | instagram
