10 Things That Make Me Happy

Good surprises
I haven’t quite figured out why I LOVE surprises, but I just do! I suppose that’s why I always enjoy a good mystery/suspense film. If I could get a GOOD surprise everyday of my life, I think I’d be the happiest person in the world.

Good friends
I LOVE my friends! There’s almost nothing that I wouldn’t do for them. I’ve always known what kind of people I want to have around me, and I spent the majority of my life waiting for them to enter my life. I’m very proud to say that NOW (at almost 30 years old!) I am surrounded by those people 🙂

Good food
Y’all KNOW I love to eat! Flavorful food with the just right everything makes me so happy. I consider myself to be somewhat of a food critic, so I believe I have a good idea of what good food is. I also love to COOK good food!

Good weather
I haven’t lived in too many other parts of the country, but from my experience, I believe that there is no better place to be in the fall and in the spring than Atlanta, GA! It is beautiful. If I wake up late, and things aren’t going so well getting ready for work, if the weather is nice out, once I step foot outside the biggest smile comes across my face and I forget all about the previous shenanigans. And now that I have a car with a sunroof, I get an extra dose of the weather all the way to my destination!

Nice outfit
I used to say it’s hard for me to find clothes I can rock, but the truth of the matter is it’s hard for me to PAY for clothes I can rock! It’s out there, but I just have to shell out the money for it. Either way, I LOVE buying an outfit that I look absolutely awesome in. It doesn’t look too big, too small, de-accentuates places I don’t want highlighted, and overall is just plain trendy. It gives me a confidence boost, and feeling confident makes me very happy.

Uncontrollable laughter
I LOVE to laugh! When I was a teenager, I swore I spent the better half of my life laughing. Good times. Since I live alone and spend most of the day in places where laughter seems to be taboo, I don’t laugh too much anymore. Not that I watch much tv, but there’s almost nothing hilariously funny on anymore. So, in the rare instances when something funny does happen, I milk it for all that it’s worth and am a very happy person at that moment.

Seeing “him”
Don’t act like you don’t know what I’m talking about ladies!! Y’all know what it feels like when you see that dude–whether he knows you exist or not. And if you actually talk to him…HOOOOOOOO!!! That’s extra happiness right there.

Nice drive
I love to drive through midtown slowly with the windows down (that implies excellent weather) listening to jazz at night. I feel so grown-up and classy. It doesn’t have to be midtown though. I love driving slowly down any pretty street with a nice view–especially the ones with the multi-million dollar homes on it. Don’t act like y’all don’t still play “that’s my house!”

Fruitful labor
I love seeing the fruits of my own labor. Whether it’s something I taught someone and they’re teaching it to someone else, or something I created that turned out to be successful, I am overjoyed and happy to see that people appreciate my work.

God’s will
I am a very happy person when I know I’m doing something that God told me to do. That’s why, although I have that one dumb, boring class, I’m very happy to be in school right now because it soooooo was not my idea! I’m happy when God is happy with me.
