For some reason, I was having a blah morning. Have you ever had one of those? So I decided I better nip that in the bud real fast. I gave myself 10 minutes to list some things that make me Happy. It’s in no particular order:
I like baking cookies chocolate cookies with my family and eating as many as I want.
I like the feel of sand under my feet and waves lapping against my legs as I look for shells.
I like when I coach someone and there’s that click when you know they ‘get it.’
I like the concentration it takes when I’m coloring within the lines.
I like looking at paintings and drifting into the world inside the colors.
I like walking around the neighborhood discovering something new each time.
I like the sound of the crack of dawn.
I like watching romantic movie marathons on a lazy Sunday afternoon
I like being surrounded by pillows.
I like to sing to myself as I walk down the aisle of the grocery store and watch other people smile
I like looking at pictures of my parents and remembering all my childhood fun
I like watching a little baby watching me and wondering what’s on their mind.
I like the smell of a flower shop with the wonderful combination of aromas.
I like how red lipstick makes my Smile ‘pop.’
I like speaking to strangers and being able to say something that brightens their day.
I like doing “The Cupid Shuffle.”
I like throwing parties for people and watching them have fun.
I like taste of eating freshly popped popcorn at the movies.
I like sending cards to friends to let them know I was just thinking about them.
I like the excitement of finding a card in the mail from a friend who was just thinking about me.
I like singing and dancing in the car when one of my favorite songs comes on the radio.
WHAT MAKES YOU HAPPY?
