Things That Make Me Happy

There are a hundred and one reasons and perhaps many more reasons behind the happiness in a person's life. I may only enumerate those I have in mind though I'm sure you can add many more to my list and be surprised that life after all, is worthy of that smile.




I smile at the thought of:
- spending time with the people I love
- sipping a cup of coffee
- blessings from our Lord
- window shopping
- having a lazy day and procrastinating
- playing with my nephews and niece
- knowing that my clients are satisfied
- my clothes getting loose
- being lulled by the sound of the rain


Seemingly, I would like to share some inspiring movies I have gotten from my subscription with Blessings Experiment. I have collated them for sentimental reasons and I find them valuable too. My heart yearns to be a better person after every view. I am moved by the potent words depicted in every plot. I am compelled to strive harder, to give my best in all my undertakings. It gives me the force and the energy needed to start anew as I am consoled to stand up, pick up the pieces and to courageously welcome change in my life.


I go through different phases in life like the seasons do. Along with it comes the outburst of emotions, impulsive or careless decisions and hurting words I may say recklessly. I am reminded to explicitly welcome such occurrences, to learn the lessons in every situation, to understand what it is trying to unfold and to be prudent in the process.


As I intently watch every short movie from time to time, a portion of me is transformed into a better being... and I smile.

  14. What makes me smile? People. Children. My dogs. The sun shining through the trees and washing over me as my day begins. The sounds of the birds as they wake the world. My husband when he comes home and hugs me telling me he missed me all day. Laughter. I could go on forever here. :)
    Thanks for swinging over and reading my nonsense.. Please know that I am legally blind which makes if very hard to find other peoples blogs unless they leave a comment I can click on. Hope to see you (No pun intended haha) soon and to be able to get to know you better. I loved this post. Oh as for the beastie that bit me I'm thinking it was a spider. I just couldn't see it to identify it. Grr
