47 Happy Things.


I encourage all of you bloggers, readers, friends and weirdos to write your very own happy things list. It made me smile thinking about writing this, giggle while I wrote it at my computer and cry when I realised how silly some of the things that make me sad are. There are so many more important things in life than what holds us back and sometimes those things are just the simplest of all.

Here is my happy list, a collection of the little things in life that make it worth all the heartache and sadness.
