The Happy List Project 01

The Happy List is currently my longest standing series on my blog, the first instalment was posted back in November 2014. They've been few and far between this year though, a side effect of my depression and my The Sunday Post series. A while ago I was feeling a little down so wrote an impromptu happy list, focussing on the more trivial and general things that make me happy as opposed to events that have happened to me. I didn't think much else about it and it sat in my notebook alone until one night recently I was sat in bed with Luke and I asked him to write a list of his own. From there I had the idea to ask other members of my family & then a few of my blog friends and today I'm here to share a few of their lists with you! I'm planning for this to be a little series & I hope it'll bring a little bit of happiness into your day. Each time I'll be sharing a list of my own along with three of four lists I've collected from other people.

  1. I absolutely love this idea! It's such a good habit to get into, recognising the little things that make us happy and brighten our day! I agree with you - cold days (without the wind or rain) are the best, so Autumnal and beautiful. And kittens, sunset and lush bath bombs are incredible, not to mention Zoella's videos!! I'd love to take part in this - such a brilliant idea, Thanks!
