If You Don’t Follow Lua Yet, Start Now

Seriously.  She is wise beyond her years.  I’ve been following her blog for two, maybe three months now, and she always has the most profound, yet entertaining, posts.

This Monday’s post (which I just read today) was all about finding happiness in the little things in life.  I know that this isn’t a new concept, but it was something I really needed to see in print.  She listed all the little things in life that make her happy and since my birthday has really gotten me down, I think it’s something I should do, too.

So here you go, little things that make me happy.  I’m going to try and conclude every post with one from now on, but here’s a list to get me started:

1. The first sip of an ice-cold sunkist, straight from the bottle.

2. Geico commercials

3. Christmas traditions with my family

4. Writing my name and the date on the title page of a recently read novel

5. Seeing my freshly painted nails flying across the keyboard of my laptop

6. A perfect stranger asking me where I got my laptop because they’ve never seen a purple laptop before

7. Anyone telling me they’ve enjoyed something I’ve written

8. The minister announcing “I now pronounce you man and wife…” regardless of who’s getting married

9. Dancing with the Stars

10. Quoting lines from Friends

And to conclude this post properly, a little thing that made me happy today: A kid from the ortho’s office brought the whole staff churros from Costco because I had never had one.  And they are delicious!

  1. Ok, fist of all- I know this is probably something you don’t want to hear but I’ll take my chances- HAPPY BIRTHDAY! I’m right behind you my friend, making my way towards 25 so I know you don’t feel young, free, full of life and happy-shiny-glittery…
    But still… You will feel that way once you get published so happy birthday Rachel! 🙂

    And thank you so much for your kind words, if my little list helped you feel any better, then it’s all worth it…
    #4 is a good one but boy- #7 can send me straight to moon and back! 😉

    1. Thank you Lua- I don’t think I’ll ever be published, I don’t have the stomach for all the rejection it takes to get there, but it’s fun to dream.

      Your list did help- so much- so THANK YOU!
