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.
