What Makes Me Happy



As you know from my quarter life crisis post, I have been struggling a little lately. I can’t seem to get myself out of this funk. I even tried to blog this weekend and what do you know, I couldn’t. I stared at the 52 drafts I have right now and couldn’t find a single word for any of them. Sometimes when you’re having a bad day (or week) you forget all the thing you have to be grateful for. In life, I believe you have to CHOOSE to be happy, to overcome the things that get in the way of your happiness. So in an effort to get out of this funk, here’s a list of 30 things that make me happy.

  1. Tom – how could he not be first on the list, the kid is amazing
  2. my dogs
  3. my family… should I be concerned that I put my dogs first?
  4. sunshine
  5. slurpees from 7-11
  6. dancing to Taylor Swift in the car
  7. actually, dancing to Taylor Swift anywhere
  8. WINE
  9. my birthday
  10. the first pool day of summer
  11. writing
  12. running/working out in general
  13. hockey
  14. Grey’s Anatomy
  15. good friends
  16. weekend getaways

  22. Skype dates with my best friend who lives in New York City
