Several years back, my best friend gave me a copy of 14,000 Things to Be Happy About. She kept one for herself, and we spent the day reading the list out loud to each other. We decided that we would highlight the ones we relate to.

Whenever I’m having a really crappy day, I tend to look at the book right before bed. Not only does it help me sleep, but it helps me feel at peace.

And to this day, I still find more reasons to highlight.

So, it’s about time I decided to make my own personal list to reminisce on things that make me happy on a bad day.
