It’s been a while since my last blog series, so I’ve decided to start a new one. ‘9 answers’ – just a short and sweet one that can’t descend into ramblings as my posts so often do. Starting with ‘I am happy when’. Wanted to start one a chirpy note. 🙂
I am happy when I wake up early and the sun’s shining in my room. Just one reason I love having an attic room – I can leave the roof blinds open at night and wake up with sunshine. I know that even a sliver of light can drive some people mental but I like it. What could be more motivating and happy-inducing, really?
I am happy when reading the thoughtful, personal comments people leave on my blog. I’d still write even if nobody commented, but the fact that the same people have been reading and commenting on my blog for literally years makes me so happy. Forever grateful for you guys!
I am happy when I’m surrounded by old friends and new friends, it’s late, we’ve all had a drink or 6, nobody’s thinking about college or work or the future and everybody’s just smiling their face off and dancing around. Those ‘OMG life is all about the people’ moments when inhibitions don’t exist are happy times. (Then go for a hangover run in the morning).
I am happy when I’m enjoying someone’s company and just that in itself is enough. No need for fancy activities to keep you constantly occupied – sometimes it’s nicer just to appreciate the company and enjoy the person.
I am happy when there’s no drama between my friends. Even if it’s nothing to do with me, it’s not exactly nice knowing there’s bad feeling going on. Having no drama is the best!
I am happy when I make a really good choice from a restaurant menu. Foodie gal right here! Big smile on my face when my plate arrives and I know I chose THE best option.
I am happy when I’ve completed a really tough workout and genuinely enjoyed it. Well, enjoyed the pain as much is possible. Getting a serious endorphin high after boxing atm!
I am happy when I have a trip to look forward to. Will forever love spontaneous getaways, but counting down the days to something set in stone is so exciting.
I am happy when my family just get me so well and I realise that I got lucky with this lot. Sometimes I think my mum and I are actually the same person; I can just say ‘you know what I mean’, and she knows exactly what I mean with zero explanation. My dad and I can talk about the most random of topics, and I can pretty much always rely on my dad to find a solution. My brother and I get on loads better these days and (whilst he still, and probably always will, annoys me) he’s a genuinely nice lad who wouldn’t hurt a fly. Makes me happy when I notice these little moments.
Which little things make you happiest?
