Happy 101

When you least expect it, something wonderful happens and then your day instantly brightens up. This sure feels good today, happened last week but I wasn't able to get around it fast enough.  I'd like to thank Jen over at Welcome to the Jungle for this wonderful award! Ok, way too serious...
...Thank you Jen, I'm happy for the happy award! Yay!!! 


These are the award rules: Copy the award image in your post. Then, list 10 things that make you happy, try to do at least one of them today, and tag 10 bloggers that brighten your day. For those 10 bloggers who get the award, you must link back to my blog!

Easy, huh?!
Oh boy. Not so sure about that!

1. Blogging
Seriously, it keeps me sane. At least for the most part. I love to write, I love to share things; no better way to use both of these and blog about whatever comes to mind. Granted, there are times I don't feel like sharing anything but for the rest of the time I feel like I'm doing an okay job. It's me. True me, not fake me. And as I always say...writing is my therapy, it keeps me grounded, it keeps me dreaming and wishing and hoping, and it keeps me going. Plus, have I mentioned that I actually met the most amazing people on here! Yes, all of you! Awesome writers, and readers!

2. TV (online or not)
Yes, not the most productive way to enjoy life. But, again, it keeps me entertained and that's what I need in life. I used to dislike TV (believe it or not) but today this has definitely changed. It makes me stop thinking about all the bad in life, and all the bad things going on on this wonderful planet. I tend to get a bit distracted sometimes and end up watching shows until 3 am, but hey, I'm so not complaining. Plus, certain shows have been quite insightful. Others are just plain silly and so ridiculously amazing that I just have to watch. Ha! I never complain about reruns...that is for sure. Among my favorites are (and a lot more...):

 
 
 

 

3. (Southern) California
Yes, I'm pathetic! But can't stop my love for my beloved state. Now I know, my friend K. would kick me bad if she were right around here, because she wants me to move to Florida - like crazy. Can't really come to like that idea yet.Who knows, one day maybe?! :(  But until then, my heart belongs to this state...and just thinking about it makes my day!!! I'm a dork I know. Can't wait to go back!

 
 
I could go on but won't...don't have that much time to post like 456,256 pictures up... ;)

4. Breakfast (as unhealthy as possible)
I wish every Sunday would be filled with these yummy dishes...

 

5. Hot Showers or/and a very calming (Bubble) Bath
Right now I'm hooked on Kneipp products, and I found this fig milk bathoil in Germany...awesome!!!
 

6. Music!!!
No doubt, this is my way to happiness and my way to remember certain awesome and also certain terrible times in my life. Music's pretty much always been part of my life, and hopefully will always be.


7. Traveling
Yes, right. I'm sure we all have this in common. Wish I could do this for a living sometimes, but being all the time on the move isn't really what I want either...but dreaming about France, Great Britain, Turkey, Germany, Ireland, Holland, Norway, Sweden, Finland, Denmark, Spain, Portugal, South Africa, Australia, Japan, Malaysia, Singapore, The Philippines, Hong Kong, South Korea, India, New Zealand, Italy, Switzerland, Austria, Greece, Malta, Brazil, Argentina, Mexico, Canada, and so many places and cities in the US...this exhausts me already...ahhhh....I love to dream, don't you?!

8. Books


9. Coffee (flavored or not, decaf or regular, hot or cold)

10. Being alive and happy
Even though at times I feel like total crap and all, but it's part of life (more often than wanted I guess) and makes it what it is...my life. So, what makes me happy on number ten?! Just being who I am...in all my funny glory and craziness.



Here are ten ladies worth reading (if you haven't already)...oh I wish I could give this one to pretty much all my readers...so if you aren't on this list now, consider yourself on this list anyways because you're worth it! Ok, sounds lame...because you are simply awesome!

Annie @ Chapters of our life
Jessica @ Crafting Happiness...My Way
Chloé @ Sean ♥ Chloé
Katie @ The Adventures of Katie and Josh
Sam @ The Married Couple
Kelly @ Keeping up with Kelly & Co.
Jennifer @ Crazy Shenanigans
Melissa @ Serendipitous

Love reading these blogs, they inspire and lift me up! Thank you all!
Thanks again, Jen!
Happy reading everyone.

xoxo
