Here's to Happiness Part Deux

Almost one year ago I posted a list of things that make me incredibly happy.  Well, hanging out with friends today, and talking to both my parents tonight made me want to do it again.

1. My favorite yoga pants.  Seriously.  They are way too big and I have thought of replacing them.  But they are so incredibly comfy from being worn in.  Nothing could replace them.

2. Finding new blogs to become obsessed with.  This week?  Across the Pond and Nishaantishu.  Check them out.  They are incredibly charming and written by beautiful ladies.

3. Chocolate cupcakes.  They seriously solve any problem that any person may have.

4.  Friendship.  Really, what would we do without it?  How is it that the mere presence of someone or lack of their presence can have such an affect on you?  These people that God has put in my life.  These people that he planned all along to be the ones to lift me up, encourage me, and make me laugh unconditionally.

5. Swimming.  This incredible sport has been a part of my life for a very long time.  After a break from it in my early twenties I've realized these past couple months with Masters how much I missed it.  And, how much I love it even more now that I'm doing it because I want to, not because I have to.  I love that feeling of gliding through the water which gives me the feeling that I'm invincible.  Flying even.

6. Running.  I can't believe I just typed that.  But it does.  Now that it's not incredibly painful, it's exhilarating. It's like the faster and farther you go the further your worries are left behind you.  I've found that both swimming and running are great times to pray and reflect.  (more so running because with swimming I'm usually counting laps) And the feeling you get when you're done?  Even better!

What makes you incredibly happy?  See that comment button below?  Give it a click!  Happy (almost) Monday.


  1. You! You make me happy! Seeing how much the Lord is doing in your life and the faith you have to follow Him makes me very happy! I hope you have a wonderful week friend!
