If you don't already know, I am a big fan of lists. I'm a list maker. My notes app on my phone is filled to the brim with random things I want to remind myself about. I have a list of summer goals, and list of Instagram captions (guilty), and list of baby names (Catalina and Aiden are at the top of my list :p), and a list of reminders, and a list of songs I want to listen to, etc, etc.
These lists not only keep my on track and organized but they keep me motivated and keep my eye on the prize. I wanted to make a list of the things that making me happy. From little to big. Some things that are hard to miss and some things you have to really have your eyes open to see.
Creating this list really made me happy and thankful for how wonderful life can be. I truly believe that it is the little things in life that can make a big difference. Just counting your blessings can really improve your mood just like that.
And obviously some of these things are personal to me and not all of them will bring happiness to everyone, but I do believe that some of the things will bring a smile to your face. Everyone knows what happiness feels like and everyone describes it differently and in their own way and that is A-oh-kay.
To me happiness is a smile you can't get rid of. Its this feeling in your chest that won't stop growing. Happiness is contagious. And like sadness, it demands to be felt. No ifs, ands, or buts about it.
And without further ado here is my list.
I wish I could write a longer list but my brain is bugged out from this long day, but I hoped you enjoyed this post.
And just for kicks and giggles here is a pic of baby Heav when she was really hardcore smiling.
