My Unofficial List of Happy Things

There are some things that make me feel like I have my life together. Little, simple things that probably don’t make that big of a difference in the world at large, but make me feel like dancing for joy.

This unofficial list includes things like:

  • Having my fridge full of lunches for a whole week, so all I have to do is grab a little baggie or two and stuff them in my lunch bag each morning
  • When I follow my daily routine
  • Feeling energized enough after work to get things done instead of just zoning out
  • Reading a nonfiction book early in the morning that makes my brain have to fully engage to understand
  • Having my Bookstagram feed line up (which might be why I posted two pictures today – simply because I was craving order) 😉

  • Checking things off my to-do and/or goals list
  • My plants when they grow and thrive and actually live 
  • When everything is organized and where it belongs
  • People using my name when they talk to me and being able to use other people’s names while talking to them (name tags are a lifesaver with this when it comes to meeting tons of new people at once)
  • Bouncy, happy music
  • New babies
  • Finally feeling like I’ve got the hang of something new
  • Random texts from friends asking how life’s going
  • Bright yellow curtains, fresh flowers, and having my dreams match up with reality

What are some things that make you want to perform a happy dance?

    A new, good book would be number one on my list of happy things. Speaking of which, have you ever read any of Carolyn Miller’s Regency romance novels? They are amazing, very Christ centered, and the characters are some of the best I’ve ever read. ‘The Elusive Miss Ellison’ was pretty much the first ‘romance’ novel I read, and I couldn’t have asked for a better, cleaner, lovelier…ok, sorry, I’m fangirling. Suffice it to say, they make it onto the happy list too.

      Haha, thanks for mentioning those books to me! I actually have read a few – two I think? They didn’t end up being my style, but I’m so happy that you were able to find some that were fangirl worthy to you! 🙂
