This post is inspired by the lovely Zin at Books and Feathers – it really cheered me up just reading her post and I think that writing my own version will make me feel a lot better too. Sometimes after having a bit of a rough day we need to remind ourselves of all the good things in life. I’m a hopeless pessimist – I find it hard to be optimistic about most situations so something like listing all the things that makes me happy really does help! If you’re not feeling the best right now, you should do this too and *fingers crossed* it will make you feel a lot happier. πŸ™‚

  • Sunsets
  • Talking to my internet friends
  • #Teenbloggerschat (an awesome weekly Twitter chat for teen bloggers)
  • Writing good blog posts and making graphics to go with them
  • Doing arty stuff
  • Making artwork for other people
  • Going camping
  • The sea
  • Photography
  • Finding good books and falling in love with them
  • Giving gifts to people and seeing them be happy
  • Listening to the radio
  • Looking at old photos
  • Looking through old notebooks/school books (as I did this weekend and found some very funny things – consult my Twitter feed if you’re interested)
  • My bedroom (which you can seehere)
  • going to theatres
  • Going to concerts
  • Speaking/writing in French
  • Cycling
  • Playing/watching cricket
  • Barbecues
  • Kind people
  • My friends and family
  • The blogging community

Okay that’s quite a lot for now! I’ll be continuing with things that make me happy on Twitter with the #thingsthatmakemehappy hashtag so feel free to join in and help spread happiness all over Twitter! All you have to do is tweet a list of things that make you happy and use the tag! πŸ™‚ Again, I – and I’m sure Zin would be back me up here – would highly recommend writing a list of things that make you happy whether it’s on a blog post or on Twitter or just on a bit of paper, it really does make you feel a lot better so thank you for Zin for coming up with this lovely idea! πŸ™‚

  1. You have no idea how happy this makes me feel, Em! I’m so glad that you’ve done it and I also hope a lot of people would take a part in it too. Thank YOU so much for encouraging others.πŸ’™
    And yes I have to agree that cycling and sunsets bring so much joy and calmness but I still can’t ride a bike! I know how ridiculous that sounds but I really don’t know how to, hahaha. :’]

        1. Yeah I hope you do! It’s hard to learn when you’re older but I’m sure one day you’ll do it – you’ll just have to get people to hold the bike for you whilst you’re still getting used to balancing! πŸ™‚
