Things that make me happy

Have you ever been stressed or confused and it just totally brings you down?

It's like you're brain is static on a TV.

Well I'd like to assume that I'm not the only one feeling this during these long winter months. So that's why I'm taking responsibility for my happiness and listing the 10 things that make me happier than anything else in the world.

I'm leaving out all of the obvious stuff - such as my family, boyfriend, friends, and dog. Not because they don't make me immensely happy, but because I feel they are obvious statements that need not to be addressed.

Here I go! The top 10 things that make me the happiest in the entire world. (In no particular order)

Little Talks by Of Monsters and Men
Call me crazy but I feel I have a special connection to this song. Not only do I never get sick of it, but every time I start to get anxious it always seems to play. Whether it's in the car, at a store or even just sitting at home. When this song comes on is when I tell myself "you'll be fine" and I actually believe it.

Chocolate. I'm a girl, need I explain myself?

Flowers. Whether they be in gardens or fresh bouquets I love them. My first few jobs were at flower shops so nothing makes me happier or more reminiscent than smelling and working with fresh flowers.

My heated blanket makes me cozy on the cold winter months when the Minnesotan seasonal depression starts to kick in.... Snow... *sigh*

And although my heated blanket suffices when I need it to, I would rather take a sunny day at the beach. It just melts away all and any problems.

The Londoner 
Reading this makes me want to cook and have adventures. 
She's my blog idol - I could re-read her posts hundreds of times. 

This kind is my favorite of the moment.

Pinterest! I like it all the time but when I'm feeling down I especially like to sit in the kitchen with my roommate Holly and laugh into the wee hours of the morning.

This picture is going to double count because I took this while on a sister get-away weekend (which will be a separate blog soon). First favorite thing in this photo: Sister weekends. They make everything better - plain and simple. Second favorite: Pizza. It also makes everything better.

There's my pick-me-ups! I hope you enjoyed getting into my mind a little bit. You now know how to cheer me up with your weapon of choice.

As you read this I hope you realize that YOU are responsible for your own happiness. 

You can make your life what you want it to be, all you have to do is take a little initiative and make things happen. 

So think about it... what kinds of things make you undoubtedly happy?

Till next time
