23 Things That Make Me Happy

“Happiness is not something ready made. It comes from your own actions.”¬†

I can really relate to the above quote. Over the past few years I’ve had to really work hard to ensure my own happiness, and I know many in similar situations.

For today’s post I thought I’d share a few things that make me happy. I’d also love to hear what little things in life put a smile on your face.

  • Catching up with friends I don’t get to see often. There is no better feeling than seeing someone who you’ve not seen in months or even years and feeling like you were with them yesterday.
