Hey guys! Welcome back. I hope you are having a great week. I have been thinking a lot lately about how I have been feeling and about how my emotions tend to be all over the place. And I was really thinking about how much I try to remember everything I have to be grateful for and how I really shouldn’t feel as badly as I do. But I think there is a part of me that holds on to the past and makes me feel down on myself. So sometimes something that really helps me is doing things that make me happy or help me feel better. So today I thought I would share the things that make me happy just because I always think it’s fun to share different things about ourselves. Feel free to share yours in the comments and here are mine!
It is no secret that I wouldn’t be where I am without them. In many ways I am who I am because of them. They have taught me so much and helped me grow along the way. They bring me so much joy because I know I can always talk to them and be open with them about anything. They are so welcoming and always make me feel loved no matter what. I love that I have built such strong relationships.
My weighted blanket.
If you don’t have a weighted blanket, here is your sign to go get one. Like go get one right now. My weighted blanket has literally changed my life and I couldn’t imagine sleeping without it now. I sleep so much better and I fall asleep faster which is always a good thing. I love my weighted blanket so much.
If you have been around for a while you know that I really love bubble baths. I don’t take them super often, but when I do it’s a real treat. It’s just very relaxing and I love the Dr. Teal’s bubble baths. They have great benefits and aromatherapy which is very calming and helps me relieve some stress. I love a really nice bubble bath every once in a while when I’m feel super stressed or overwhelmed.
Maybe it’s because I don’t get to have road trips very often, but I really do enjoy them. I love being in the car (with people who are also having a good time of course) and just going somewhere. Even if we aren’t going anywhere super important, I just love being out and getting to go different places and see new things. It is really fun for me.
Cooking and baking are two things I really love and that always make me happy. Any chance I get to cook or bake something and really enjoy the process is really fun for me. Cooking and baking both bring me so much joy and I always love trying new things are learning how to make different recipes.
This probably goes with saying, but The Office makes me really happy. That show just never fails to make me laugh and help me feel better if I’m having an off day. The Office is just a really lighthearted way to end my day and it’s always a go-to when I need a pick me up.
If you have been following for a while you probably also know that it’s no secret that I love candles. And in any situation where I am stressed or have a lot going on, like when I’m working, it helps to have some warmth and nice scents going to keep me relaxed and calm. I always have a ton of candles to choose from so I really just pick one based on how I’m feeling that day or what scent I am the most drawn to.
I love shopping. I don’t get to do it super often, but when I do it’s a really good time. Even if I’m not buying anything I still love the experience of looking at things and just seeing what’s out there. It’s so inspiring to me and I love shopping for just about anything. I even love grocery shopping.
I have been blogging for almost four years so it would be kind of weird if I didn’t love this and it didn’t make me happy. I have had to change things and evolve over the years to make sure it continues to make me happy, but I have never had any doubts that I wanted to continue. I love writing and I love creating content so this is naturally something that makes me really happy and brings me a lot of joy.
I absolutely love sleep and nothing makes me happier than a really good night’s sleep. Sleeping gives me a lot energy and really motivates me which is really important. Sleep helps me mentally, physically, and emotionally, so it’s something I have really prioritized over the years.
Who doesn’t love chocolate? I mean I guess there are some people, but over here we really love chocolate! Chocolate makes me really happy because I feel like you literally can’t be sad or upset while eating chocolate. It really helps lift up my spirits and changes my whole mood.
I love game nights. I love board games and card games. I love playing games with other people. It’s probably the thing I find the most fun. I also really love movie nights, but I think game nights are really fun and they are definitely my favorite. I always look forward to them.
I am definitely introverted, so having that quiet time to myself is definitely important and something I really look forward to. During that time there are a ton of different things I like to do. I like writing, going on walks, listening to music, reading, devotionals, watching something, or thinking sometimes. Quiet time is an essential for me and I literally don’t think I could function without it.
I love helping other people. I love giving to others and sharing with people. I love being able to give to others in ways that I have been given and also in ways I haven’t necessarily been given. I just love that I have opportunities to be there for others and help them in any way possible.
Anything that allows me to be creative and think outside the box makes me really happy. I love creating anything through writing, craft, painting, etc. I love cooking because it allows me to be creative in some ways. I love makeup because it allows me to express myself. I love writing because it allows me to create something that I can openly share with others. I just love anything that allows me to be creative.
And that is my list of things that make me happy! I could go on, but I won’t keep you. These are the pretty big ones though and hopefully it allowed you to get to know me a little better. Thank you so much for stopping by! I really hope you enjoyed this. Please like it if you did. Let us know in the comments what things make you happy.
