Think of the happiest things, it's the same as having wings

A few things I like, snow globes, acorns, Princess Leia, this dog figurine.

I was watching this episode of Parks & Recreation last night and there was this funny bit with the character Craig where any time he got annoyed or angry he would name three things in life that made him happy, the joke was of course that his three things were always so random and funny, but I really liked the idea! When I get sad or angry or annoyed at life, I want to think of things that make me happy. I started a list today, I think it will be an ongoing thing for me.I thought sharing them might make someone else happy too!

Some things in this world that make me happy:
wind chimes
the smell of old books
the smell of fresh coffee
crushed ice
swing sets and teter-toters
a light wind in the trees
birds chirping
babies laughing
racoons washing their food

What are some things that make you happy?


  1. I love all of those things too! Especially the smell of old books! I love to walk into a used book store and just breathe in the smell... it is sort of sweet, isn't it?

  2. I love this list and must agree on whales and coffee. The raccoons washing their food made me think of this book I recently read. The lady writing the book had a koi pond and said she observed raccoons washing their hands so intently that she felt the need to leave them a bar of soap!


I detest those pesky spam comments, so it may take a bit for your comment to appear, don't despair!
