Finding my personal happiness is a never ending journey of mine. It ties together all aspects of my life. My first big girl lesson was that I must find a way to be happy on my own in order for all of life’s downfalls to be worth pushing through. Religion, self-confidence, self-worth, parental approval, I’ve worked to find my own happiness in many of them. However, even when I found what I was looking for, the daily to-dos and responsibilities still made it hard to keep that happiness in sight. So, to stay moving forward, I make it a point to remember the little things that make me smile to remind me of the things that are worth the toils and struggles of life:

  1. That first sip of coffee in the morning
  2. The smell of the morning dew
  3. An organized work space
  4. Waking up to a good morning text from your SO
  5. Finding a lucky dollar in your pocket
  6. Cutting into the avocado and it’s perfectly ripe
  7. The taste of perfectly cooked fresh white rice
  8. The cold side of the pillow
  9. The first blooms of spring
  10. Climbing into bed after a long day

It’s important to appreciate the little things in life. There are too many things to bring us down, so count your blessings, smile at life’s little pleasures, and create your own daily happiness. What do you do to find your daily happiness?
