10 Things That Make Me Happy

So this short post was written in preparation for Blogtober, but I didn’t realise that I had enough posts scheduled already!

I didn’t want to delete my content, so figured I might as well share this one with you guys. Things at work are not what they used to be and the struggle is real. I haven’t gotten round to spending enough time on my blog and reading others, but I’m trying my best to keep up. We tend to get so caught up in the here and now, that we forget about the things that make us happy.

Do more of what makes you happy

Nothing in life is permanent and happiness takes work. Hard work. Sometimes it’s good to just sit down and list things that make you happy in order to reflect and re-center ourselves. It’s also great to read some blog posts about The Most Common Causes of Depression if you’re trying to identify the root cause of your emotional struggle.

Sometimes, when I’m down, I try to find little things that make me happy. Even if it’s just taking my favorite pen to work or drinking coffee from my favorite mug! Sometimes I just go on to Pinterest and look at positive quotes to brighten my day.

Here are 10 general things that make me happy!

  • Anything blush pink, rose gold and sparkly. Just looking at pictures of it makes me feel warm inside.
  • Pitbulls and Pitbull puppies
  • Cuddling and going on adventures with my girlfriend
  • Spending time with my daughter
  • Writing and creating content for my blog
  • Wine, Coffee and Cigarettes
  • Books and Sudoku puzzles
  • That feeling just after taking a shower
  • Social media
  • Watching TV, listening to music and shopping

Long term plans that make me happy when I think of them

  • Working for myself in the future
  • Studying Social Media Marketing
  • Travelling
  • Having a more relaxed lifestyle
  • Being able to spend more time with my daughter
  • Growing my blog
  • Freelancing
  • Marrying my girlfriend

I feel better already now that I’ve highlighted the things that make me happy. Now I can focus more on that instead of dwelling on the here and now! What are some things that make YOU happy? Let me know in the comments!

    Aw I love this. Short and sweet. Maybe I’ll blog about this topic too! Being with my daughters makes me happy too. Especially cuddling with them and watching them draw because they are amazing artists. Finishing a cleaning or organizing project and stepping back to admire how clean and organized everything is. Writing on my blog; finishing up a blog post I am really proud of. And chocolate. Definitely chocolate.

      Haha, chocolate is never left behind! Thanks for taking the time out to read my post xx

  • The Frozen Mind

    I absolutely love this post! It is so important to know what makes you happy but I love that you took it further by listing your plan to stay happy.

    • Multipotentialite

      It really does help to try and have a plan and long term goals that make you happy. Thank you for taking the time out to read my post! xx

    This post is amazing. I love it. Work can be tough and focusing on what you love really does make your day even on bad days. I love finding a good book and just curling up with a blanket and a hot chocolate and reading for the day…usually with some nice candles burning and my cat snuggling me. Taking a walk through the park on a trail when no-one else is there, the smell of the trees is calming to me. Finishing a blog post makes me really happy as I know I’ve been true with what I say so I’m proud of myself even if only 3 people read it. Always make sure to do at least one thing a day that makes you happy. I’m glad you shared this post even though it didn’t make it to Blogtober, looking forward to reading more next month.

Just the fact that you’re proud of it regardless, tells me that you’ve found your passion. I’ll be checking out your latest posts soon! xx

    This list is great and it’s so nice to hear that somebody else loves Sudoku because I’m a Sudoku freak and I rarely meet other people who are lol

    • Multipotentialite
