50 More Things That Make Me Happy

A few weeks ago I shared a list of 50 random things that make me happy here on the blog and it really got me thinking about what genuinely makes me happy. As someone with a severe mental health illness I suffer from depression regularly and when that strikes it is awfully hard work trying to find things that bring my spark back. I wanted to share with you, but to also document for myself when I have dark days, 50 more things that bring that smile to my face.

  1. That’s a great list! I have to go back and double check but I may have written something similar or I may have just written a 10 random facts about me or something. I also did 50 things to be thankful for, which I wrote for Thanksgiving. I deal with depression too as a symptom of PTSD and this past Winter was a bad episode of depression that I had a really hard time working through. Now that I’m out of it I can focus more clearly and I agree that making a list of things that make us happy is definitely a great start!

  2. There are so many things on your list I agree with. There is nothing nicer than the cold side of the pillow, especially on warm nights. And oh my, bubble wrap. It’s THE best stress buster ever!

    1. I think I gain so much from the blogging community these days that it has become a very important part of my life now.

    1. I think it’s just nice to have something positive to look at when the days are difficult too.
