Happy List

Does anyone else write lists of things that make you happy? Just me? Really? Well, fine then, I’ll share mine with you, so maybe you can see how nice a cute little “happy list” can make you. It’s scientifically proven that thinking about things that make you happy, and taking the time to reflect on happy things at the end of the day will make you a happier person. I don’t have an actual scientific research report to back up my claims, but I did take a “Psychology of Being Happy” class, and it was all about tricks and tips to being a happier person. One of the assignments was to write down 3 things at the end of each day that made you happy. I don’t do that, but I do make lists every once in a while. So yea, here’s my latest one:

  1. Cupcakes
  2. Dappled light
  3. Puppy kisses
  4. Baby giggles
  5. Getting text messages
  6. Pen pals
  7. Letterboxing
  8. Geocaching
  9. Handmade rubber stamps
  10. DIY projects
  11. Milk and freshly baked chocolate chip cookies
  12. Minions
  13. Things on Jeremy’s head
  14. #henrysconcepts (if you haven’t seen this Instagram series, you are missing out!)
  15. #whiteboardbaby (my Project 365 on twitter and flickr with Blueberry)
  16. Foraging for lunch
  17. Hot tea for breakfast
  18. Sweet tea for lunch
  19. Wind chimes
  20. Collecting seashells at the beach
  21. Suspenders and bow ties
  22. Corsets and garter belts
  23. Little girls in tutus
  24. Bowling
  25. How peaceful babies look when they are asleep

What are the little things in your life that make you happy?
