Things That Make Me Happy

Happiness comes from you. No one else can make you happy. You make you happy.
— Beyoncé Knowles-Carter

What makes you happy? This is a simple question that can be difficult to answer.


My sister challenged me to write down things that made me happy. "It's harder than you think", she said. She was correct. It took me a whole day to come up with a list.


We all want to be happy, right? My main goal in life is to be happy. Because life is too short to spend it any other way. We control our own happiness. It's so important to do things that make us happy and keep a positive mindset. We shouldn't depend on anyone else to do it for us.


In order to manifest happiness into our everyday lives, we must first figure out what makes us happy. That's the first step. What makes you smile? What brightens your day? What can you do right now to make yourself happy/happier?


I am sharing my list of things that make me happy. I left material items off of my list. I also did not list any people because that could be another list by itself. But yes, I love my family and spending time with them makes me happy. Beyoncé would also make that list. 





Things that make me happy:


1.  Seeing progress and personal growth in myself or loved ones

2. Things that smell good

3. Food/sweets - cooking, eating, and finding new recipes
