My Happiness List: January 2015 Edition

My last post was a little bit down, I think, so I decided that it was time to share another happiness list. I blogged my last personal happiness list almost ten months ago, so I’m clearly long overdue. Who couldn’t use a little hit of positivity once in a while? There’s all kinds of research to show that it’s very good for you. Plus, it’s just plain fun.

Let’s get the joy party started, shall we?

My Happy List

  1. Rooibos chai tea. All the goodness of chai, none of the caffeine to make me jumpy.
  2. Comfortable new pants I bought on clearance.
  3. Really good chocolate. Always.
  4. Finishing my prerequisites for teaching school and earning a GPA of 4.06. Hooray!
  5. Massage therapy.
  6. My new seed order has arrived. Let the garden dreams begin!
  7. The teacher I’m volunteering with, who is a fabulous mentor.
  8. The students I’m volunteering with, who are more awesome than a hot fudge sundae.
  9. Living in Vancouver in January. As we like to say, you don’t have to shovel the rain.
  10. My son’s love for his new loft bed – which we scored for free from someone who outgrew it, so double extra bonus points.
  11. My daughter’s newfound love of fantasy novels. I really enjoy watching her sink her teeth into a book.
  12. My children’s teachers. Both my kids are really enjoying school this year.
  13. Singing in the kitchen in the morning.
  14. Podcasts. I do love podcasts.
  15. My husband’s piano is out of storage and I get to listen to him play.
  16. New books to read.
  17. Getting back to blogging again. This space floats my boat.

What about you – what’s on your happy list right now? I’d love to hear!

  1. Sunshine, tea, essential oils, pajama pants (ha!), seeing my daughter reading in bed this morning before she got up, and Friends on Netflix 😉

  2. Oh I love this! I need to put together one of these for myself. A few of my happy things right now are tea – I’ve been on a hunt for new flavours and boy have I found some great ones, the sunshine currently pouring in my window, new fuzzy socks, Friday Night Lights on Netflix and listening to my little dude sing the songs from Into the Woods.

  3. I am thrilled that I have been able to change up the hours I work to make my commute more manageable.
    I love that I have a spouse who pitches in and who really believes in equality.
    I am happy with a return to routine and earlier bedtimes for all of us.
    I am happy that there is finally enough snow to sled, snowshoe and ski….no point in living in a winter city if there is no winter 🙂

  4. I slipped on the ice on Monday and had my 20-pound daughter land on me and her diaper bag pummel me in the head as I skidded ten feet on my back…and not only did I escape with very minor scrapes and general aching, baby unharmed, and no clothing torn…but I did NOT get the killer headache that usually follows a day or so after any sudden spinal tension! I’m so relieved, it’s been making me happy all week.
