Many people, including myself, tend to complain at times. We often focus on the things that we don’t have and forget the things that we are blessed with. However, there are lots of little things that can make us feel happy and grateful.
Sometimes life is very difficult and unfair, but losing hope and joy is not the solution. A stranger’s smile, the pleasant smell of a delicious dish, or a warm sunray on your skin can be reasons to be happy. It’s all about the little things. This post is a part of my challenge called My Happy List. Thank you to all of you who decided to join the second week of the challenge! You still have plenty of time to share the little things that make you happy or the things you are grateful for.
Here are some of the little things that make me happy:
- Watching the sunrise and sunset
- Spending time in nature
- Cool sunny days
- Flowers and blooming trees
- Spending time with animals
- Singing birds
- Having a good laugh or making someone else laugh
- Delicious food
- Smelling an aroma that I like
- Fresh sheets
- Warm clothes in winter
- Happy children
- Receiving a sincere compliment
- A gesture of support
- Being able to help someone
- Learning new things
- Art or being creative
- An interesting book or a good movie
- Listening to my favorite songs
- Completing my tasks for the day
- The feeling after a good work out
- Visiting new places
- Touching something soft and fluffy
- Happy flashbacks
- Meeting interesting people
While getting lost in all those little things that seem so important, don’t forget the little things that matter…― Virginia Alison
What about you? What are the little things that make you happy?
Your list is great. Idea is very good.
Thank you so much, I am glad you like it!
What a wonderful long list and great soft photo. : )
Thank you very much, Kim!
Doorbells and sleigh bells and schnitzel with noodles… no wait, that’s a list of my favorite things
That reminds me I forgot to add lighthouses and benches. 😀
What makes me happy? Reference images and free resources…
Uih… Everything on your list is great!
Thank you very much!
You are most welcome, Ellie
They are a good list. Learning how to do a new skill may be another.
Thank you, Pamela! I agree with you, we should never stop finding joy in learning!
What makes me happy are great music from symphonies, seeing a slapstick comedy and music from the late Sam Spence of NFL Films fame.
This are all wonderful things to do when you need a little bit of joy! Thanks for sharing!
You are welcome ellie925.
I love your list, and I must try some of them soon.
Thank you so much, LaJenna! We can find joy in all of the small things
Wow that is a long list! I didn’t list all of mine, only a few.
The little things are so important.
Thank you for joining, Carol! Lists can go on forever, but I agree that the main thing is to enjoy the little things and the small wins.
You are so welcome Ellie and you are right!
Great list, a lot of them would be on my list too! 🙂

Thank you so much, Branka! 🙂
Never even miss the small things, because they are very substantial and can bring you something big.
I agree with you, thank you for the wonderful words!
