What Makes You Happy?
Yesterday was International Day of Happiness and sometimes you need to be reminded that there are so many awesome little things that happen all the time you probably take for granted!
Here are a few:
-Sharing a smile with a stranger [actually the best thing in the world, and so subtle]
-Accidentally getting an extra egg roll with your take out order
-When your favorite childhood movie randomly comes on TV [i.e. Adventures in Babysitting, Mermaids...] And I mean cable, not Netflix, for some reason it's much more exciting
-When your kid sleeps in for an extra hour on Saturday
-Netflixing all day and not feeling bad about it because you legit have nothing on the go
-A fresh pad of loose leaf [I don't know why, but office supplies are awesome]
-When you hit all green lights on your way to anywhere
-Dancing alone in your kitchen... or anywhere
-Accidentally waking up in the middle of the night and realizing you still have 3+ hours to sleep [BLESSED]
-When a dog walks up to you to pet it and you don't have to chase it down
-Peeing in the shower [don't knock it 'til you try it]
-Waking up and thinking you are late for work then realizing it's Saturday... ahhh
-Spontaneous road trips
Those are just a few of my favorite things.
What about you?
The smiling thing is legit though. Smile at a stranger and see how great you feel. Some may look at you like you have 10 heads, they just don't know what's up yet.
Moral of the story, don't worry be happy.
