1.) Waking up to no alarm clock on a day I do not have to be at work. The sun is shining, all is quiet.
2.) A hot cup of coffee in the morning.
3.) Finding cute clothes on sale for under $10. I refuse to spend $20 on a shirt. You’d be surprised what you can find at places like Goodwill.
4.) Getting out of town. Going on an adventure. Just leaving the area makes me so happy.
5.) Customers complimenting me at work. Telling me I look pretty or that I’m nice. And customers who have known me since I started and always talk to me when they come in, like we’re old friends who haven’t seen each other in a while. It’s like everyone knows me. Some don’t make me so happy, but there’s a good amount that do.
6.) Pets. Animals in general. They make me happy. Every time I see a dog walking, or I come home to my cats.
7.) Feeling like I accomplished something constructive during the day. Cleaned, worked on things I needed to get done, or did something fun like write or paint or read.
8.) Blogging. Blogging makes me happy. Between writing and reading other people’s posts, it makes me happy. I wish I had more time to just invest in it.
9.) Being with my friends. I miss my best friends, it always makes me happy to be with them.
10.) Last, but my favorite, being with Ray makes me happy. It’s been 3 weeks since I’ve seen him, but we talk every day and we’re making it work. We’re trying to see each other real soon. And I have this sense of comfort while I talk to him – like he’s in this. He’s talking about taking me to a party with his frat (it’s an academic frat) at the end of next month. It’s the weekend before Halloween so it’ll be a fun weekend of dressing up. But he’s introduced me to his friends already, and he’s met my mom. So to me, he’s worth the wait. And waking up to a good morning message from him everyday makes me happy. Being cheesy with him and him saying cheesy things back makes me happy. Laying with him at night makes me happy. Just being with him makes me happy. I don’t care about the distance because we’re making it work, and that makes me happy. So happy.
What are some things that make you happy?
