10 Things That Make Me Happy

Happy 101 Award!

Ugh, I feel lousy. In the middle of the night I came down with something, slept horribly and was running 101 temperature this afternoon. So it’s a little ironic to be writing about this “happy award” I have here, because I’m not feeling too happy right now. Perhaps it will cheer me up some.

So, a little off the beaten path here, but I couldn’t resist….I read this yesterday on a really great blog, Roni’s Weigh, and decided it would be a fun post to keep going, so here we go…

The rules are to copy the award image and display it on your blog, list 10 things that make you happy, try to do at least one of those things today and then pass the award along to 10 bloggers who brighten your day.

Here goes!

. . .

10 Things That Make me Happy (in no particular order)

1. Eating
2.The feeling I have after working out
3. My family – I love my husband and kids more than anything in the world
4. Blogging – it is such great therapy for me
5.. Relaxing by a beach or pool on a warm, sunny day, preferably in a tropical location
6. Reading
7. Watching movies – I like comedies and romantic comedies.
8. A good back massage.
9. Laughing
10. Giving and receiving a big hug.

I pass this award on to these 8 bloggers (I’m new, I don’t follow 10 yet!) who make me happy with their posts:

Tales of a Disordered Eater
Inner Pilgramage
Enlightened Bodies
Yum Yucky
Bookish Penguin
A Weight Lifted

Pass it on, have fun with this! If you don’t feel like doing that, maybe just write back with some things that make you happy. 🙂

One day at a time. Nurture myself. Awareness. Letting Go.

    I definitely hear ya on #2 😉 I love reading these things because so often what makes people truly happy are the seemingly simple things- like hugs. It shows that we don’t need that much in the way of MATERIAL objects in life. What we need are positive relationships, both with ourselves and with others. That is happiness.

    Thanks, I’ll definitely do this. There are some days you just need to think about these exact things.

    i know, at first i thought it was silly to post this, but then i realized that i needed to think about these things and make myself to look at the things that make me happy because i so often lose sight of them.

    I like your list, laughing would be one of my top things I think and also that feeling you get when you stand on the scales and you think you have had a really bad week and put weight on but then you have lost 2lbs
