30 Things That Always Make Me Happy.

Often when I’m feeling a little bit down, I like to do something positive, like tell someone how much I love them, how much I appreciate their work or generally try and spread good vibes. As I’ve been feeling quite anxious recently, I thought I’d counteract it by talking about 30 things that make me happy.

Although these are little things, I find that it’s the little things you do for yourself that make the biggest difference, like sitting in front of your favourite TV show, munching on some snacks, cosy in a blanket, which is exactly what I’m doing whilst writing this post!

    Nice list. I love singing along the songs driving around alone. Unfortunately my car insurance expired yesterday so I can no longer do that at the moment. Maybe I’ll have to start singing in the shower instead? I like to look at travel inspiration when I need cheering up and also updating my travel scrapbook.

  • I feel happy just thinking about putting my Pyjamas on… Haha!
    Love Vicki ♡ victoriajanex
