I’ve been doing a lot of thinking lately, and today I found myself thinking about things that make me the happiest, so here are
10 things that make me insanely, insanely, happy.
- Pretty skies. If you know me, you know this. The second I see a sky painted in pink, blue, orange, or purple, my phone is coming out. Can’t really explain why but it just brings me a lot of peace, happiness, and gratitude. In short, they make my heart reallllllllyyy happy.
- Long hugs. There’s nothing quite like a long embrace with someone you really care about. It’s probably where I feel the most loved & the safest.
- A good book. Again, if you know me there’s no surprise. To me, books are better than tv or movies because in my mind I get to envision it my way.
- A fire playlist. It’s essential. Music for every mood. Happy, sad, hopeful, in love, heartbroken, vibing, or turning up. If you’re around me enough you’ll know the music is always on, & playing from my playlist entitled “shìt I been listening to.” (Side note, I’m making my two best friends listen to it with me right now as I type).
- The sneaky eye contact with someone you really like. Come on, you guys know what I mean. I don’t even have to explain. THAT look.
- Quotes. Nothing I love more than a little motivation to keep going. To keep your loving yourself & those around you. To serve as a little pick me up right when you need it.
- Chips & salsa. So simple, but so true. I will literally never, ever, EVER, say no to Mexican restaurant date.
- Making my people proud. I’m convinced there are no better words to hear from the people you love and respect most.
- Deep conversations. With anyone. Let’s talk about your goals, your dreams, your tribulations. Let’s talk about relationships & heartbreaks, & what love means to you. Let’s talk about the world & why we need to do better. Let’s talk about how much Donald Trump fucking sucks. Let’s talk about everything.
- Achieving a goal (no matter how small). I especially love this when it’s a goal I’ve been working towards for a while. A goal I might’ve almost given up on, or a goal that seemed to knock me on my ass time and time again. There’s nothing a little passion, & discipline can’t get you.
These are all fairly, small & simple, but really some of my favorite things. So if I were to ask you what’re 10 things that make you insanely, insanely, happy; no matter how big, or how small, what would your answers be? Think about it.
