100 Things To Be Happy About

You're feeling empty. Had a routine grey day, and you just want to come home sleep. You aren't too sure what there is to look for, you're hoping someone is going to come along and fix this cardboard sadness but you don't know what is missing. Remember that you are the ONLY person that can make yourself feel better, in all honesty no one can fix you but yourself. Being sad is not a good thing, yes it teaches us lessons - but to crave and glorify sadness, is the unhealthiest thing of all.

These little things won't fix your problems. They will just create moments where your dimples will show, and maybe you can giggle a little quietly, only if you want. Life is about those little moments, no one can feel happy all the time.
