#100: A Hundred Happy Things

Sunday brunching in the sun * Chocolate eggs * Blooming trees * Holding hands with Boyfriend * A feel-good film * Picnic in the park * Finishing my work-out routine * Getting top grades for a test * Hearing good news from people I love * Singing out loud * Skype with my little brother * Smiling * A good glass of wine * Taking beautiful pictures * 80s and 90s anime * Meeting new, interesting people * Cake at work * TENERIFE * Clean and crisp bed linen * Lavender scent * A Guiness for St Paddy * Dreams come true * An unexpected present * Nicely shaped clouds * Long weekends

Strawberries for breakfast * Cherries * Strawberries any time * Swimming in the ocean * Star gazing * Travel plans * Daytripping with the perfect companion, usually my boyfriend * Sundresses * Dancing to anything Usher or Cheryl (Cole) * Late evenings with great friends * Open-air cinema * Watching The Simpsons' oldies but goodies * A fresh summer parfum * A gorgeous sunset * Well-behaved hair, which is rarely the case * Painting my toe nails * Mountains (they remind me of my home island) * Speaking a foreign language * A first kiss * Treasured memories * Blue skies * A 70% off label in the summer sales * Walking barefoot * Early sunshine on my window * Nature wonders 

Walking over fallen leaves * Watching the rain pour from my window * A good lie-in in the weekends * Ice-cream when it's chilly * A hearty home-made meal * Looking at old photo albums * Bellydancing * A warm cup of tea with a biscuit * Autumn's thousand colours * Pumpkin cream * Learning something new * Writing * Rainbows * Coming back home * Any painting by Magritte * Piano playing * Hiking * Childhood friends * A stranded beach * Me-time * Hearing the waves crashing * A listening ear and a shoulder to lean on * Watching my favourite football team score and win * Series DVD sets for rainy evenings (Friends anyone?) * The smell of the countryside

Hot chocolate * The first snow of the season * Christmas decorations * Wrapping gifts * Homemade biscuits * Ice-skating * A good book * Meaningful conversations * Receiving a letter or postcard from friends * Sending Christmas cards to friends who are far away * LOVE * Baking cupcakes or brownies ...  simply baking anything *  Knitted scarves * Scented lip balms * Dim lights in a cosy room * Roasted chestnuts * Waking up to a white landscape * Staying in * Movie nights with Boyfriend * Winter coats * Sci-fi stories * Lenghty dinners in good company * Thermal baths * Feeling accomplished by the end of the year * Wishing for an even happier new year

Wow, writing a hundred happy things! This has been quite a difficult task but a very rewarding one! I've been struggling for a week to reach humber 100 but at the same time I've realized that there are many simple things that make me happy on a daily basis. I've also learnt that food makes me considerably happy and that I'm more and more drawn to all the beauty mother Earth has to offer. 
Writing down a hundred happy things has been a good challenge for my creative writing skills, so maybe you'd also like to give it a try. Let me know if you do so and share you link on a comment.

Have a happy Wednesday!
