Things That Make Me Happy


“Things That Make Me Happy” is one blog post I never get tired of reading. I love being happy, I love making others happy, I love talking about what makes other people happy. I know it’s only natural that we’re not happy 24/7. But, whenever negativity creeps into my mind, I try and think of these things and focus on how blessed I am. My hope is that this post will make your day a little brighter.

These are some things that definitely make mine brighter…


Yes. Something as simple as coffee can make my day so much better. I have one cup every morning, and sometimes treat myself to a second midday pickup 😉 I love everything about coffee. It’s yummy, warm and tastes amazing. Also, I love collecting cute mugs, although my mug cabinet is getting quite full… 


I love reading! I don’t get the chance to read as much as I would like (due to having a fairly busy schedule). However, I try to set time aside each day to “hit the books,” that aren’t for school. I love reading everything from classics to science fiction. I love reading about worlds others have created, and seeing what it’s like inside their creative minds. 


A picture really is worth a thousand words:




These photo’s are heartbreakingly beautiful. I love how photography has no words, just an image. Yet, it can send a message so much more powerful than words ever could. It reaffirms my belief that if you close your mouth and open your eyes, you’ll learn so much. 



Family is such a blessing! I am so grateful God placed these awesome people in my life. We’re a little crazy, but there’s never a dull moment 😉

I love exploring this big world. It’s so vast and diverse! I love going new places and experiencing new things. Things like going to Disneyland with my family when I was seven, or visiting the mountains of Tennessee for Christmas are memories I’ll always treasure. There are so many places I hope to go in my lifetime. I’m so excited to see where the future will take me!



My relationship with God is my main priority. I am so grateful to have such a gracious and forgiving Father who loves me in spite of all my failures. I love reading my bible, and learning more of God’s word. My faith has helped me through so much, and I know that with faith I can do anything.


Okay, I’m pretty sure animals make everyone happy…? Everything from dogs to giraffes; any animal (except a snake or insect, eww!) I love. Whenever you’re feeling down, Google cute animal pictures! You won’t regret it.

Those are just a few of the many things that make me happy. I hope you enjoyed this post and have a lovely week ❤


Question time:

What is something that makes you happy?

Are you a bookworm?

  1. I’ve been craving to do a post just like this lately. So important and so beautiful to remind ourselves of all the things – even the smallest – that truly make our hearts sing. I love how sometimes we don’t even know why exactly they make us happy, but they just give us that little butterfly in our tummies. This is the best feeling in the world.
    Coffee and photography also do this for me. Having a hard week so this gave me many smiles! Thanks!
