100 things that make me happy

A few days ago my infectiously happy friend posted a blog with 100 things that make her happy. You can read it here http://www.iaminfectiouslyhappy.com/.   She challenged everyone that read it to create there own list. I stepped up to this challenge. (it’s tougher then it sounds)  However I had no intention of sharing this list with all of you. It was a very personal thing when I started it. But after reading my friends list and numerous others by people I have never met, I decided to share the love. And I challenge all of you to create your own list. Because it’s not just about listing things that make you happy. Its about taking the time to remember them and smile with each memory. Or in the words of peter pan “remember your happy thoughts”. I’m sure you are going to learn a few things about me after reading this list. You might  see some things that don’t make a lot of sense or you might see some things we have in common.  Just know that I poured my heart out and was 100% real in writing it. This is me. And I hope I can inspire you to find your happy thoughts today.
