10 Things That Make Me Happy Everyday

I’m not going to lie, some days are better than others. I’m trying to be more mindful as I go about my day, doing so I’ve picked up on things that make me happy. I can enjoy these thing that make me happy almost everyday if not everyday. 

It makes me happy to be in nature too, I don’t do it nearly enough though. A trip to the beach a few weeks ago reminded me of that. Since summer is drawing to a close maybe a few hikes will be in the books for the fall/winter, I do love going to the beach during the winter too though. It has such a different feel, I just love it.

Anything i can do to put a smile on my face or have a moment of calm in the anxiety driven mind I have; I’ll take it. 

10 Things That Make Me Happy Everyday #life #happiness #happy

  1. Watching my kitty sleep – and boy does he sleep a lot, he is pretty much level expert. 
  2. Seeing all the beautiful colors in the sky from dawn to dusk.
  3. Gazing at the moon and stars – if I didn’t know any better I’d think I was an alien.
  4. Reese’s Pieces – need I say more?
  5. The love I have in my heart – it’s full and I try to be kind and spread it around all day. It takes 2 seconds to say “thank you” or give a compliment.
  6. Practicing mindfulness everyday – it really helps to keep you grounded.
  7. Having a sense of fulfillment in my life – it’s been awhile if ever I’ve felt this. I started a new job September 10th, I have a loving family and friends.
  8. Fluffy blankets – I love getting lost in all of its puffiness.
  9. Crystals – I have my favorites that I carry around with me daily but I love them all. I’m currently carrying around a tumbled Rose Quartz.
  10. Sleeping in – I absolutely love to sleep so on the weekends I do take advantage.

What makes you happy everyday?

  7. #1 is definitely one for me too–Muffin’s good at taking her naps! 😛 I’m all for fluffy blankets and sleeping in too! Spending time with friends and family always tops my list because I rarely get to see them!

  8. I have to say, I don’t really aspire to “happiness.” Happy Moments have been such a rarity in my life…I feel like if I keep striving for that I’ll be constantly disappointed. I do strive for PEACE. Moments without anxiety or pressure, when things feel calm around me and I feel settled. This year (sigh, and last year, too) has been tough…I’ve lost some big things recently that brought me peace…and even happiness…so I’m still trying to sort that out. But things like…an afternoon at a quiet beach, comfortable temps and changing skies…that brings me peace….getting into bed at night and finally totally relaxing…hearing hard rain outside my window at night…the cat snuggling against me on the sofa…the first bite of some really good food…

    The anxiety-free moments are rare, but I do always watch for them and I notice and appreciate them when they come.

  13. Thank you Leslie Nichole for putting a huge smile on my face this cool Autumn morning in Las Vegas, NV.
    Your list makes me rethink my gratitude list that I have been keeping daily with a great free Android app called Gratitude.
    Thank you for loving the things I write and share on TotallyInspiredMind.com and CookingUpaStormWithMissPolly.com.
    I had 2 cats when I was first married to the rocket scientist many years ago in 1986. Unfortunately, when we divorced in 2001, both of them touch the face of God and let’s just say 2001 was a pretty sucky year. But I love animals and especially cats because you can hold them and they’re like sweet little babies. My one cat muffin very precious cat tabby cat but sit on my lap I swear all day and we got her when she was just weaned. My other black cat with golden eyes Midnight was a boy.
    Both of them were my kids since I never was able to have kids I love kids I’m talk piano 25 years to kids 6 to 86.
    God bless you my friend. We have so much in common And I’m originally from Southern California and my dream is to go back there then get a place out there one day in the future so I can live close to the water and see my beaches in my ocean where I find Serenity and peace every time like clockwork.

    Thank you again for being you!

  15. 10 things that make me happy? Such a great thing to ponder. well:
    1) My apartment. No one bothers me here, and everything is just how I like and left it.
    2) My bath tub. I soak daily as part of moy routine to rest the body I’ve beaten up over the years.
    3) Cooking. I run a steakhouse kitchen these days, and am learning to cook very well. I love food.
    4) Wildlife documentaries. They take me back to better days.
    5) My favorite band, Eluveitie. Celtic folk metal to either awake or relax me.
    6) My laptop workstation. I love having my special mouse, and all my software setup just right and creating things freely.
    7) Anything outdoors, especially cycling. I’m tempted to do some winter camping at this point.
    8) Only working part time. For 12 years now, I’ve known nothing but full time work. 3 day weekends are amazing.
    9) The people in my life. They’re as awesome as they are varied.
    10) The freedom I am earning. I will soon be free to travel the world as I wish.

    Love the post, hope you are well
