Gratitude Life

30 things that make me happy

It’s been so long since I wrote a post here. Oh yes, #fictionmonday posts do appear here. But I am missing out on the old blogging action. Also, I have been lax on writing my monthly gratitude post.

In an effort to revive the old writing habit on this blog, I am choosing to write a list of things that make me happy. You are welcome to write your list and share it with me. I would love to read yours.

This list is not complete. There are a lot more little things that bring happiness in my life.

But I find writing this down is helpful in reminding myself of all the good things in life. Especially now, when things are different. What I like about my list of happiness is that it comprises of all little joys. There are some big joys that I get to experience occasionally. But the value of little joys is immeasurable.

What do you think? Would you like to list a few things that make you happy in the comments? Or write a post and share the link with me. 🙂

    1. Isn’t it wonderful that our lists expand as we continue to practice gratitude? Your lovely list is promoting me to write one of my own. Thank you for the inspiration, Vini.

  1. I liked your list, Vini. It’s indeed the little things that matter more, but we rarely understand it! ;P
    Some of the things that make me happy are right here, in this post: drinking my fav coffee, talking to friends, doodling, clearing my book/stationary drawers, my me-time, reading, yoga, walk…sometimes sleeping, too!

  2. Lovely list and its certainly therapeutic to jot things like this down. I anyways find making a list very therapeutic – it takes away a lot of my stress, leaving me very happy 😉

    I love sleeping or just lying in bed- one of my happiest things to do, then there are the morning walks in the forested areas of gurgaon that I can go to and my morning cuppa makes me a very happy person!

    I have been spending a lot of time on audio books and pinterest these days- both are huge stress busters for me too.

What do you think? Please share! :)
