50 Things That Make Me Happy Tag!

Today we have a post that isn’t really related to books. I think it’s important every once in a while to focus on the good things in our lives, and not put so much pressure on ourselves. November is proving to be a busy month for me – trying to keep up with blogging alongside participating in National Novel Writing MonthΒ (you can check out my prep post here) and working in retail (picking up more shifts due to the Christmas season approaching) is taking its toll. But, I’m trying not to let anything drop and am here with another post for you! Yay! πŸ˜‚πŸŽ‰

Thank you so much to the wonderful Kelly (from Paperback Adventures) for tagging me in this lovely post! If you’re not already following her then you definitely should be. Kelly is such a fantastic book blogger who also posts about mental health and is a blogger to watch. πŸ’–

Here are 50 Things that Make Me Happy:

  1. Climbing into fresh bed sheets
  2. Taking my shoes off after a long day
  3. Having a long-awaited catch up with a friend

    My cat, Cleo
  4. Making my nan laugh
  5. Seeing someone I love after a while
  6. Cuddling my cats
  7. Watching horror movies with my mom
  8. Getting my hands on a book I’ve wanted for ages
  9. Christmas – and everything about it.

  21. Finding someone that you just instantly click with
  22. Finishing a good book
  23. Cleaning out a room – so satisfying.
  24. Baking
  25. When someone suggests a takeaway
  26. When something I’m nervous about goes well
  27. Blogging
  28. Buying new books
  29. Getting advice from my dad
  30. Being able to have a lie-in
  31. Watching a David Attenborough documentary
  32. When a new episode of a TV show I like comes out
  33. Getting flowers
  34. Planning surprises
  35. Elephants

    Exploring Thailand
  36. Playing with dogs
  37. Wearing pyjamas that have been warmed up
  38. Snuggling into a cosy blanket
  39. When it’s cold enough to have the fire on
  40. Fairgrounds
  41. Having an excuse to get dressed up
  42. Receiving a parcel
  43. Visiting new countries
  44. Walking through the woods in the summer
  45. Having a cheese night 😍
  46. Napping on a Sunday afternoon
  47. Going to pilates
  48. Cinema popcorn
  49. My older brother making fun of me – I don’t know why but I can’t help but laugh.
  50. Being trusted with a secret

That wasn’t as difficult as I expected it to be πŸ˜‚Β I like to think that I’m generally quite a happy, smiley person but we all have those days where all you can think about is what went wrong or what upset you. Now, those things are legitimate and feeling down because of them isn’t something that we should ignore, but instead, we should acknowledge it and then try to move past it. This can be hard, depending on what’s happened or the extent of its impact on you but is something that can give us a helping hand in the long run, however small.

What makes you happy? Even if it’s a huge list or just one or two things, I’d love to know.

  1. How adorable is Cleo! 😍
    What a great list of things! I love reading these because, even though I’ve already done my list, I still see things that I missed out from mine and it’s a reminder of even more things to be happy about. And is so nice to see the kinds of things that make other people happy as well. I love that you put making your nan laugh on yours. I think that’s so incredibly sweet.
    And thank you so much for your super sweet and kind comments about me at the beginning of the post. You’re so lovely, thank you!
