Are you feeling happy yet?

Fresh sheets on your bed.
Someone complimenting a meal you made.
Painting your fingernails and actually not smudging them.
Helpful customer service.
Seeing a good picture of yourself.
Gift cards.
Finding something you thought you'd lost forever.

Are you feeling happy yet?

Flowers you didn't think would return this year that look better than ever!
red flowers
This just bloomed in our front yard this week, yay!
Your favorite song on the radio on the way home from a long day at work.
The first day you can break out the flip-flops.
Fun-colored pens.
Hearing a little kid say your name for the first time.
This dog enjoying a swing at the park.

Are you feeling happy yet?

My  EC planner that goes everywhere with me and is constantly written in.

Free food at work luncheons.
Falling asleep to the sound of rain.
Paydays that come at just the right time.
Dinner with friends that lass for hours because you can't stop talking.
A coworker bringing you your fave energy drink because "they were 2 for $2"
hey, crappy cell phone pic ;)
With all the negativity in the world, it's easy to let it bring you down. This no-spend month we're doing? Stressful at times. My job? Can really be a lot to handle some days. Trust me, I'm the Queen of stress and letting little things weigh too heavily on me. Cue the "happy lists" I make, regularly! Jotting down a few positive thoughts or things when you've having a bad day is THE number one way to cure those blues. It just takes a second to realize how beautiful your life really is.


Are you feeling happy yet? What are you choosing to be happy about today?
