“The art of being happy lies in the power of extracting happiness from common things.”
— Henry Ward Beecher
We are always in search of happiness. It can easily be attained by appreciating the simplest things in life. It is the common things that bring us true happiness.
Here are some of the simple things that make me happy.
(P.S. – Some stuff might seem a little weird)
Watching the sunrise is pure bliss. – The beauty of mornings is divine. I love to listen to the birds chirping in the morning and the rising sun.
A cup of Coffee or Tea. – My day always starts with a cup of tea or coffee. I love drinking tea made by my mom and coffee made by my brother.
Watching it rain and the smell after it rains. – Just wow!! Sitting in a room, watching the rain from a window and dreaming is a feeling that cannot be described in words. And once it stops raining, the smell after that is just amazing.
Spending time with family and having light hearted conversations are the petty moments that I cherish the most.
Puppies and dogs. – Though I don’t have one but I’ll surely adopt a dog some time in the future. So, I just watch their videos on Instagram for now. They are so cute and the best part is that they love you back thousand times more than you do.
Walking in nature and sitting under the trees.
Reading. – A good book + coffee + music = Happy me!
Fridays. – I don’t know why but I love Fridays. Not because the weekend starts from that day but just like that. I really have no reason to like Fridays more than any other day of the week. (But this doesn’t mean I’m sad on other days.)
Talking to friends. – I can talk and gossip for hours with them.
Staying in bed doing nothing. – This is one of my favorite things to do and it makes me really happy. I’m the happiest person when I’m doing nothing.
Watching F.R.I.E.N.D.S. – I’ve already watched the whole series at least five times yet I manage to watch two or three episodes daily, even if I’m loaded with work.
The day I shampoo my hair. (I have no words to explain this!)
Popping Bubble wrap. – So satisfying!
Music. – Listening to good music is a must for me!
Sleep. – I aim to sleep for at least 8 hours each day.
And…. This notification just made my day! Thank you so much everyone. ❤
Also, I would like to thank Top Tamil Talk for tagging me in Small Joys Tags. I’ve done it in a slightly different way (without any rules or something like that). I hope you don’t mind that. 🤗
