What Makes You Happy?

Being a 22 year old girl in this day in age can be very stressful.  With school, work, friends, homework, family, etc.  It’s not always easy to look at the positives in life; to just relax take some deep breaths and be grateful for everything you have.  Every night before I go to bed I enjoy writing down all of the good things that happened during the day and everything that I am grateful for.  I’ve decided to share my top 10 things that make me happy, whether they are big or small, it’s what makes you happy that matters.

This list is in no specific order

  1. Doing my makeup – I know some girls feel the struggle of adding makeup to their faces everyday, but this makes me happy.  I love getting ready and trying new eye shadows on, it calms me before I go out.
  2. Sunsets/sunrises – Like almost every girl, I love watching the sunset and sunrise.  Waking up early with a cup of coffee watching the sunrise is something everyone should experience once in their lives. That being said..
  3. Coffee– I am a massive coffee addict and I am not afraid to admit it!
  4. Game night with my family– Coming from a very loud Italian/Puerto Rican family, game night gets a bit crazy (in the best way possible). By the end of the night, we’ve all cried from laughter at least twice if not more.
  5. Drives down PCH– Living so close to Pacific Coast Highway, I take full advantage! I love stopping to get coffee (haha) and blast some Bobby Darin up and down PCH.  The ocean air helps me de-stress. Bobby Darin for those of you who don’t know of him.
  6. My Friends– I have had the same three best friends since I was in the 6th grade.  Although our lives get busy, we always try to find one way or another to catch up and be our weird selves without judgments.
  7. My Sister– Being an identical twin, my sister is more than a sister to me.  We laugh, we cry, we sing loudly (and off key) to the songs like Gilmore Girls theme song.  I couldn’t ask for a better sister.
  8. My Dog– My cute little Yorkshire Terrier, Biscotti is the most adorable thing ever! She always puts a bright smile on my face when I see her little face.
  9. Reading– I didn’t start really enjoying to read until senior year of high school, all thanks to my english teacher, Mr. Brendan Powers!  He helped me love the written word, and now I can’t seem to put a book down! Thanks Mr. Powers!
  10. Hugs– Anyone who has ever met me knows that I am a big big hugger.  I absolutely adore hugs.

Those are my 10 things that make me happy, what are yours? And as always..
