Happiness List

One of the things that I'm trying to do lately is that I'm trying to appreciate the little things in my life that make me happy.  For me especially, it is all too easy to focus on the negative, to focus on what's not going well, the disappointments in life and forget about all the good.

So I've written a list over the last few weeks and I'm surprised and delighted that this list is longer than I'd thought.  Even just writing these things down in this blog post makes me happy all over again just remembering these nice things that have happened to me.

(This photo isn't to do with anything in particular, but it does make me happy!)

An email to say 'I'm here for you if you need to talk'

A comment on a blog post that said 'what you do matters to me'

An unexpected surprise in the post that was hugely thoughtful

The realisation that the friends I have really are my friends

A compliment from an acquaintance that came out of nowhere

A hug from (my) little boy

What's been making you happy lately?


  1. Aw, what a lovely post! I might make a list of the happy things too, it really cheers you up thinking about what you appreciate in life :) Love the photo too!

    1. Thanks Zoe :) I'd love to see your happiness list!
