100+ Things to be Happy About

I don’t know about anyone else, but as winter drags on and spring seems to take forever to get here in Montana, I start to feel the effects of lethargy, frustration and even depression. I started keeping a journal of things to be happy about to not only help myself remember even little things matter in life, but there are so many little things that are absolute blessings!

In an effort to share my happiness with my readers, I want to share 100+ things off my list to be happy about. I recommend bookmarking this page to come back to when you need a boost in happiness!

  1. I love this! I am a firm believer in living a “Glass Half Full” kind of life and trying to find the good in everything, so this does my heart good to know that I’m not alone. Sometimes, all we see is negative and pessimism, so I applaud you for taking the time to be happy! Great Post!

    1. Thanks Niki!
      I have not always a “glass half full” person. I struggle with a heart of bitterness a lot and it is something I am really trying to change. Making a change in your attitude is so hard, but I know that it will make my life so much better. No use in being miserable! 😉
