10 things that make me happy

Sometimes we all have those days where you just feel a little rubbish! At the start of this year, I decided I was going to start my own positivity jar to help on these days, so every day I try and jot down something good that has happened on a little piece of paper, and place it in the jar. This jar will stay sealed until New Year where I will take out all the slips of paper and celebrate everything good that happened over the year!

I think it's really important to remember all these little positive experiences that make us happy, and in a bid to encourage you guys to do the same, I would like to share with you the 10 things that make me most happy (in no particular order). Sounds corny, but sometimes we need a little reminder!

1. Music: My favourite place to spend an evening has to be at a gig with friends. Live music and a few cheeky drinks, I can't imagine anything better!



2.Socialising/friends: My friends are the ones who make me laugh, and without a little bit of laughter where would we be!? I love spending time with other people, it's much more fun than being by yourself!

3.Teaching drama: I love to share my skills and watch kids grow in confidence. Knowing that you have helped that is just the best feeling!

4.My Camera!: I love having the ability to capture the world and show people what is important in my eyes. Having a voice via images is such a brilliant feeling.


5.Family: I annoy my mum something rotten and me and my brother don't always see eye to eye, but I suppose without them who would I have to torment!?

6.My hamster: She is just SO adorable. Whenever I've had a bad day, I just give her a cuddle and her cuteness just cheers me right up!

7.My bed: Bedtime is definitely the best time of the day! !Who agrees with me!?

8.Coffee: I literally cannot get through a day without a coffee! Don't be surprised if you catch me chillin' out in Starbucks or Costa several times a week! I swear half of my wages goes in there!

9.Chocolate: Of course. Who isn't happy with a lovely bar of Dairy Milk in their hands!?

10.Unexpected Politeness: A simple smile from a stranger walking down the street, or someone stepping aside to let you off the tram first. All these little things have such a positive effect and make me feel happy for hours afterwards!
