I recently read an article on happiness which pretty much states that people tend to be happier when they live a more meaningful, fullfilling life. While I am fully behind that, I also believe in those small daily pleasures that put a smile on our faces and make us happy, even if it is only momentarily. Here are some things that make me happy:

  • My boyfriend’s smile
  • A new pair of shoes
  • The sound of waves
  • Playing with my dog
  • Freshly dyed hair
  • Giving love to stray animals
  • Catching up with friends
  • A cool breeze in a hot summer day
  • A good meal followed by dessert
  • Knowing that I have made someone happy

What makes you happy?
