Day 46: Make My Happy 100 List

Alright so I got this idea from a website called Day Zero. Basically people use this website to create lists of their goals, dreams, achievements, future plans. One person wanted to sit down and compile a list of 100 things that make her happy. It got me to thinking, could I think of 100 things that make me happy? I think sometimes I let myself get hung up on what doesn’t make me happy or what I think I’m missing in my life. So I decided I’d sit down and make my own list. This will also give you random insights into the things that make me smile.

This is my Happy 100 list in no particular order
