Life of Hayley has been a little depressing as of late. I was talking to my husband, Brett, the other night and he said I should make a list of the things that make me happy so when I’m down I can read the list. So here goes nothing!
By the way, this list is not in any kind of order.
- Our cat, Lucy
- Summer nights by the bonfire
- Hanging out with Brett
- Being at the Lake surrounded by family
- My parent’s dog, Megan
- Shopping with my mom and sister
- British candy
- Road trips
- A clean car
- Freshly baked cookies
- A completed to-do list
- Sunday afternoon naps
- Getting a good deal (on anything)
- Summer in Michigan
- My grandma’s banana bread and zucchini cake
- Traveling (especially around Europe)
- A good ol’ cup of tea
- Reading before bed
- Helping someone when they need it
- Writing (this blog, a book, who knows?)
- Boat rides
- Walking the dog
- Nice people
- An unexpected “Thank You”
- A clean house
- Fresh sheets
- New skin care
- A full tank of gas
- Clothes that I feel comfortable in
- An empty e-mail inbox
- Coke Slushies
- Putting my pajamas on after work
- Christmas Eve
- Summer car rides with music blaring
- Reading book reviews
- Fresh flowers
- London, England
- Our wedding video
- Collecting vintage tea cups
- Harry Potter!
- Art Shows
- People watching
- Trader Joe’s
- 90’s music
- Sour candy
- Going to the beach
That was easier than I thought it would be! I could go on and on but I won’t bore you with the details. Making a list of my favorite things actually did make me feel so much better! Next time I’m feeling down I will come back and read through this to remember my happiness.
And as the saying goes – “It’s a bad day, not a bad life”
Thanks for reading! What are your favorite things?
