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?

3 Things I Love To Do: Outdoors

3 Things I Love To Do: Outdoors

These three things make my heart full! These are three things other than my family, boyfriend, and cat who I do love dearly (but they’ll have their own post).

Amidst the crazy busy, stressful, and anxiety ridden days I need an escape; that doesn’t leave a lot of time to do so. I would love to have the flexibility to cancel my schedule for that day and head out to where the sand meets the salty water but that isn’t always the best option especially if I’m expected to adult that day.

Motorcycles // This love that attached itself to me was one I knew I never wanted to give up. On a long day a little two wheel therapy is great for clearing the mind.

Riding with a crowd or all alone feels so amazing. The fresh air coming through the face shield, the sun on your arms and back on sunny summer days, and the fear you come across when a car gets too close or you see gravel in the road way. It’s a balance that tugs both safety and security.

Archery // When I was little I would watch my dad practice with a bow & arrows. He did it to stay conditioned for hunting but it fascinated me and I had to try it. I actually didn’t try it until my birthday (2017), I love the laser focus it takes, the sound of the arrow as it leaves the bow, and the noise that echos when it hits the bag.

I won’t be doing any hunting because I try to save all the animals and not kill them. I like using the bow because it helps me focus and is helping me learn to quiet my brain; which is a daunting task. I’m starting to get really good at it, plus – it’s a workout for my shoulders.

Adventure // As a Sagittarius; I love adventure and It calls me to each direction I turn. There isn’t a day that goes by that I don’t crave some sort of adventure but I don’t always get it. Womp womp womp. I am the only girl on both sides of my huge family so I’m so use to doing things outdoors and getting muddy.

If you’ve ever taken 3 hours out of your day to trek a mountain side up to 2,000+ feet on a sweltering 95 degree summer day then I salute you because that’s not for the faint of heart. You’ll find strength propelling yourself by rope up the side of a mountain and courage when you dive into some of the freshest water on earth that instantly chills you to the bone.

What’s something you enjoy doing outside? I really wished I liked camping more because I’d love it if I could just let go of the idea that I’ll get eaten by a bear (thanks anxiety).
