Hello Beautiful People! 😊
As a society, I believe that we aren’t grateful enough for all the blessings we have. We’re always SO focused on what makes us sad, angry or disappointed. We’re always SO centred on what we don’t have, rather than thanking God for what we do have. We find it difficult to create, recognize or maintain our happiness. What I find surprising is how easy we give in to worrying, compalining, stressing, and over-thinking. Sometimes, we honestly can’t help it. Other times, we should honestly be choosing happiness – or at least trying. We should never ever give up. Why? Because happiness won’t come looking for us. We have to create it – Usually by looking after ourselves, our needs and our health.
(There’s nothing wrong with being selfish every once in a while, right?)
Today, I decided to do a lovely tag (that nobody specifically tagged me to do), and share with you what makes me happy! I seriously encourage every single one of you, to do this tag – it’ll make you much more grateful, hopeful, and happy.
50 Things That Make Me Happy
1 – My Mum: An Infinite Never-Ending Source Of Happiness! LOVE YOU, MUMMY! ❤️
2 – Spending Time With My Mum: This might seem as if I said the same thing twice, but trust me, they are 2 completely different points. My Mum, as a person who knows everything about me, makes me happy. Then spending time with her, also makes me happy. Whether it’s chatting together, hugging, or just being in the same room together – I’m always happy! My Mum always make any activity much more enjoyable, fun and amazing! Spending time with her is, honestly, the BEST!
3 – Blogging: I truly enjoy it! I adore writing posts, reading & replying to comments and all the tasks & feelings that come with having a blog!

6 – Discovering A New Talent & Passion: It’s such an amazing feeling! Can you relate? Like, when I discovered that I like photography & that I’m talented at it. Or, when I took the decision to start my own blog – which is definitely a source that provides a significant amount of happiness.
7 – Shopping: Yes, Yes, Yes! I totally enjoy buying new stuff (which mostly applies to fashion items), especially if I’m doing it with my Mum! We always have such a blast!
8 – Sleeping: YASSS BABE! Add soft pillows, sheets & blankets (when they’re clean & fresh) to the mix, don’t set an alarm and we’re all set for the perfect night.
9 – Singing At The Top Of My Lungs While Doing Chores At Home: Chores aren’t the most entertaining, but do them while singing and life gets much more interesting!

35 – Reading Hilariously Good Jokes: Never fails to bring in so much laughter!
36 – Making An Achievement: Accomplishing something great, that you probably worked really hard for is an awesome sensation! You become: Proud, Happy, and Excited! Because (let’s face it)…You took the risk to try, you’ve put in the effort, you’ve probably faced a couple of challenges, you might have experienced failure – but when you actually reach your final destination (aka Success), the feeling is BEYOND words!
37 – Having Generous, Understanding, & Jealousy-Free Friends That Don’t Judge You.
38 – Feeling Comfortable: I will define this as sitting or lying on a cosy plush sofa or bed, surrounded by a couple of nice soft pillows, doing one or all of the following (relaxing, watching TV/YouTube, listening to music, internet-surfing) and maybe accompanied by a close family member or friend! #GOALS

46 – Being Motivated/Challenges: Feeling powerful, determined, and spirited to do something is a great feeling. When I say things to myself like “I can do it” or “I’m capable of achieving this” or “Nothing is going to stop me” – I feel happy & hopeful. When I’m motivated by anyone or anything in general, or maybe challenged to do/achieve something – I feel happy & hopeful.
47 – Acting Silly Or Playful: Marilyn Monroe Once Said “It’s better to be ridiculous than to be boring” which I totally agree with. Goofing around sometimes makes me (and others) have a good laugh, at times where we really need it!
48 – Maintaining & Spreading Positivity : Thinking on the bright side of life is 1 simple thing that makes anyone happy. Whether I’m being optimistic, learning from my mistakes, remembering past successes, pushing back, or just encouraging myself to never give up…
