It seems to me, that we sometimes forget to acknowledge even the simplest of things that make our lives more pleasurable. And often we spend so much time pondering on the battles of our lives that we don't even realise how lucky, or happy we are.
I have been thinking about it a little lately. Trying to be more aware of the things that bring joy to my life. More often than not, it is the small things that make me happy. So I have made a list, for a couple of reasons... A good list makes me happy and, I have decided to list only 10 things, so I have time to go and visit everyone else's "This is" posts for this week. I hope you have all enjoyed the theme... and you have a happy Sunday.
This is what makes me happy...
A free table in the window of my favourite cafe makes me happy.
Slipping into a freshly laundered bed after a long day makes me happy.
The smell of frangipani on a warm summer evening makes me happy.
Living a creative and adventurous life makes me happy.
Summer smiles make me happy.
Using all my tiles in scrabble on a triple word score... makes me happy.
Curling up, with a good book and a full bowl of maltesers, beside an open fire makes me happy.
A walk on a deserted beach makes me happy.
Beautiful things make me happy.
BUT. ABOVE ALL.
My family and friends makes me happy. When everyone is healthy and happy - so am I. I am happy when spending time in their good company, sharing stories over a healthy meal, laughing. Being happy together. THAT is what makes me happy.
Thanks again to Angela for creating the "this is" magic
