Make Me Happy

Do you ever think about the little things that make you happy?  I love the simple, unexpected moments that happen on ordinary days.

  • Receiving a handwritten card in the mail.
  • Having rainbow sprinkles on my ice cream.
  • Getting a text message from Nick with a “❤️” in it.
  • Hearing an old favorite song on the radio.
  • Finding out something I want is on sale when I go to buy it at the store.
  • Driving toward an intersection just as the traffic light turns green.
  • Running into an old friend at a store and catching up.
  • Finding money in a pair of jeans I haven’t worn in a while.
  • Checking my DVR playlist and find a show I forgot I set to record.
  • Winning a couple of bucks on a scratch-off lottery ticket.
  • Waking up before the alarm clock.
  • Even better… Waking up and thinking it’s time to get up, but it’s only midnight or 2am.
  • Learning that I have something in common with Nick that we never realized before.
  • Getting a message that I sold something from my TeachersPayTeachers store.
  • Being completely surprised by the ending of a suspense novel.

Questions to Consider:

  • What are everyday moments that make you happy?
