We humans always seem to focus in on the negative. On the news there’s stories of wars, rapes, murders, and many other horrible things that bring us down. Among family and friends, we talk about who hurt our feelings, who broke our hearts, and the events that just bring us down in general. We tend to forget to look at the good things in life. Not everything is terrible. If only we stopped to think about all the things that are going right, the things that make us happy, then we’d be less stressed out than what we allow ourselves to be.
With that being said, here are some things that make ME happy:
Soaking my feet after standing on my feet all day
Cold Mountain (the book AND the movie)
Mountains and woods
“Take me home, country roads” by John Denver
“When You Say You Love Me” by Josh Groban
Bookstores (Barnes and Noble in particular)
Looking at tintype pictures
Stand up comedy
Water for Elephants
There are many and more things that make me happy. Maybe I’ll do some more happy lists in the future. What are some things that make YOU happy?
