I’m happy when

I’m happy when I eat fruit

when I burst out laughing and can’t contain it, when it gets to that point where it actually hurts to continue laughing

when I discover a new song

when I wake up and don’t feel tired, but relaxed and motivated

I love seeing the seasons change, like actually witnessing the changes

really hot showers, really long ones too

just the idea of traveling, planning trips, setting goals of places you thought you could only dream of seeing

when people smile back at me or hold the door open for me and knowing how those little things can make a mark

I’m happy when I’m making memories that when they happen, you know you’ll remember for ever

or even simply falling in love with special moments with people, not necessarily those people, but those moments

when my coffee is perfect, the perfect amount of cream, the perfect amount of sugar

nights when the stars are so bright that its almost impossible not to stop and reflect

late nights, in the car, when your singing your heart out at the top of your lungs with absolute no care or worry in the world or thought in your mind, or anytime in the car really, with the windows down, thats when you really feel it

I like dancing in my kitchen when I’m home alone and just laughing by myself

watching tiny things sleep, puppies, kittens, babies, just wait there and watch them sleep

RAIN, I love rain, dancing in the rain, running through the rain, the sound of rain, the smell of rain, before the rain, after the rain, all of it

waking up on your birthday, or Christmas, or any holiday really

peeling dried glue off your hands, weird but try it and tell me it doesn’t make you feel some type of way

buying a sweatshirt from a place you were just visiting and wearing it on the ride home

reuniting with people, hugging someone you’ve really missed, and seeing your best friend after being apart for too long

waking up after being asleep on the beach all day long, and then taking off your swim suit to find a wicked tan line

getting nervous butterflies

when your airplane finally lands after a long flight

being warm and cozy inside, when its really cold outside

realizing your happy

and making your parents proud

There are so many things that make life so simple and easy. Sometimes we get stuck in these routines and cycles where it seems like were almost not even living, but just going through the motions of life everyday. I’ve been putting together this list on my phone for almost a year now of just things that make me happy or make me feel good and I think more people need to hear them, and maybe try a few. They’re small things and things you can incorporate into each day if you wanted to. We have every reason in the world to be happy, so lets be happy.
