5 Things To Be Happy About | Blogmas 3

Hi guys!

I’m so glad to see you all engaging with this Blogmas. My last picture on Instagram has 1000+ likes (whaaat?!). You guys are the best, really!

Today I want to talk about 5 things to be happy about. Full disclaimer: Today was kind of a rough day for me. I don’t know if I’m just hormonal (God damn it 😂) or what but I was feeling really down.

Now you know I always do my best to stay positive so here you go, 5 things to be happy about (at least, for me).

1. Travelling


Oh the feeling of getting to know a new place…! It’s just like when you fall in love for the first time. Everything sounds so exciting! Even the simple everyday tasks sound so great just because you’re in a new place. Last time I travelled was 2 months ago, so I feel happy because travelling exists and because I have a life that allows me to do it.

2. Makeup


I know that this is such a futile thing to say, but I’m so happy makeup exists. You see, I’ve never been good in drawing , painting or anything related to crafts. I just wasn’t good at it and maybe because my mom is like *really* good at it, I just always wanted to be able to draw someone. Well, it all changed when I discovered makeup. I was finally able to completely transform myself or anyone into someone or something completely different.I know it sounds shallow to say this but I’m happy that makeup exists because it allows me to create art.

3. Music

vrr9a2roobi-patrick-pilzI’m grateful for music because it’s something that can lift my spirit, that can calm me, excite me, that makes me feel sexy and sad and fearful and strong and powerful. I’m happy for music because it gave me a floor when everything else failed me.

4. Jokes


I’m happy for jokes because they light up the mood. Because it can be the best of the ice breakers. I’m happy that jokes exist and that I’m able to make them almost everyday. I’m happy for jokes because jokes make me happy – does that make sense?

And finally

5. Love


Love from friends, from your family, from your other half and most of all, love from and to yourself. There’s nothing better for you to feel happy than just loving and letting yourself be loved. I think I’m not great at the last one, but I’m doing my best to change that.

** I just read this post before posting it and omg guys, I’m sooo emotional today. I’m sorry! But I hope these little things made you feel a little more happy? 

What about you? Why are you happy today? 


See you guys tomorrow

    There’s nothing wrong with being emotional, and it looks like you’ve channeled it really well. I think this is a great list

    Great post. What am I happy about. I don’t know where to start I am so blessed. I have a great family, faith and career. And about to get my first bit of writing published. Live could not be better.

    Lovely post. I love your last one. I like make up too, it can make you feel happy when your feeling down. Just a bit of bright red lipstick can make you feel brighter 🙂

    I think that everyone should stop and think about what 5 things to be happy about as life is so fast paced now that we just take all these things for granted. Maybe if we realised on the rubbish days that we do have a lot of things to be happy about we would realise how lucky we are as not everyone has the what we have.

    Nice post, very emotional indeed! I believe that someone can only have happy moments. On the other hand, a person can be grateful every moment of his/her life. I’m happy after a walk by the sea and I’m grateful that I live close to the sea! More happy moments! 🙂
