Things That Make Me Happy

HEY Y'ALL!!!!!!!!! Ayyyy look who's posting on time!! MEEE!!!

So earlier today, I was mowing the lawn, jamming out to some music, when a post idea hit me: what makes me happy. 'Cause through all the stress in life, it's important to recognize that not all of it is bad, and there are many things that you can do to chill out, and be happy. Finding those little things that make you happy is a good thing to do, cause then you can do them more often!! SOO. WITHOUT FURTHER ADO, LET'S GOOOOOO!!!

1) Music!

Music is super important to my every day life, and no matter where I am, it comes too!! You can usually find me plugged in with my earbuds, listening to some of my favourite tunes. So I thought I'd list some of my fave artists, with my top 3 fave songs by them for each one!!

Fave songs: Through The Dark; I Want To Write You A Song; If I Could Fly

Fave Songs: Our Song; A Place In This World; Hey Stephen

Fave Songs: Patience; Believe; Show You

Fave Songs: What Makes You Beautiful; Okay; A Thousand Years

Fave Songs: You Need Me, I Don't Need You; The A Team; Lego House

-THE YOUNG DUBLINERS!!!Fave Songs: We The Mighty; The Leaving Of Liverpool; The Rocky Road To Dublin

Fave Songs: San Fransisco; Permanent Vacation; Money

Fave Songs: Canadian Kid; I Didn't Fall In Love With Your Hair; I Can Play Guitar

Fave Songs: Back On The Ground; Southern Belle; California Moon

AAND I COULD KEEP GOING BUT I'MA STOP RIGHT THERE OR ELSE THIS WOULD BE WAAAAY TOO LONG. (I mean it already is so cheers if you got this far!!)

OKAY. Now I'm just gunna list random things that make me happy!!

2) Blogging/The Blogging Community!!
Seriously, when I log onto my email and see that someone has posted a comment on my blog, I get so freaking excited and this warm feeling that someone cared enough to read and post!! So can I just say, a BIG WARM THANK YOU to EVERYONE who has ever read or posted a comment on my blog!! You guys rock. And you make my day, big time. Love you all <3 (BTW. If you ever want to collab or just get to know someone new, shoot me an email!! I LOVE talking and getting to know new people, so don't be shy, friend!! Email or comment, and our non-friendship will end!! :P)

3) Cuddly Things!
By this I mean, anything cozy. Scarfs, hats, mitts, big sweaters, blankets, curling up by the fire, cuddling with my cat, the list goes on!!

4) Friends/Family!!
When I hang with my friends, have good conversations with my family, or just fool around with them all in general, it really makes me happy. Just chatting with my friends (over text or in person) always makes me happy :)

5) Jamming Out!!
This ties into music, but jamming to music on my own time, just dancing to the beat - even though I can't dance!! It's just super fun and makes me super happy :D Jamming to music that I make as well. Like singing and playing the guitar?? MY FAVE. And singing and playing the piano!!

6) Making People Smile Or Laugh :)
This is a big one for me. When I smile at someone (which is like 24/7 lol) and they smile back, it cheers me up a whole lot. Or when I tell a joke and they laugh, or when I just say something and someone laughs, it just feels really nice, y'know? Like, THAT WAS ME!! I MADE YOU LAUGH!! or, I MADE YOU SMILE!! Even if I don't know them. It's still really nice.

That's it for today's post peeps!! How about you?? What makes you happy? Also, have you heard of/listened to any of the artists/songs I talked about? Comment down below! Thanks for reading, love you all!! Till next time!!

  4. What a wonderful post idea! It's so important to take a step back and focus on the good because it's so easy to forget especially when you're under a lot of stress! I also share your love for cuddly things ! My girlfriends kitten is my salvation when I'm feeling down and another thing that makes me smile is seeing cute old couples because who doesn't love the idea that love lasts :)

    lots of love, Marianne xxx
