Being happy never goes out of style.
I completely and wholeheartedly agree! Being happy is always a good idea and a good choice even when your day is going *bleh* and your hair just won't cooperate. I see being happy as a choice. You don't have to be happy, but then you miss out on pretty much everything God has in store for you. 

I'll cut to the chase and say that my General Psychology class ended early and my New Testament Literature class was canceled! Since we had so much time on our hands, some friends and I decided to do our PSY homework together. One part of the assignment was to "List ten things that make you happy." Despite this question being pretty simple and self-explanatory, I mulled over writing a list that sounded "right" to my Psychologist/therapist professor. I finally came to the conclusion that writing "chocolate" doesn't make me a shallow person! (I dare you to say otherwise!) It's okay to say that little, seemingly insignificant things make you happy if they really do! You see, happiness is temporary and sometimes, seemingly insignificant. It's based on living in the moment and enjoying every minute of it. So long as my (eternal) joy is found in Jesus, I can smile when I eat chocolate and enjoy myself when I'm hand lettering.
Without further ado (perhaps about nothing...) here are some things that made me happy today:
  • Getting to school on time even though I woke up SUPER late.
  • A canceled class tomorrow! (Unfortunately, my professor broke his toe... )
  • Feeling {pretty} confident about my PSY quiz today.
  • Wheat Thins Toasted Chips Veggie flavor. (Thanks Debora!)
  • A class that ended early today! 
  • My PSY teaching saying how much she appreciates my punctuality. (Um... thank you)
  • Making a new friend with the girl I scared the first day of class.
  • Girl talks + chocolate with my PSY squad. #SquadGoals 
  • Group chats with my N.T classmates. (We still can't seem to find the video assignment due today!)
  • Sister time with my littlest little.
  • Planning on a healthy dinner and intense workout later tonight! #LetsDoThis
  • Treating myself! (TBA tomorrow on IG!)
What made you happy today?

  1. Without further ado (perhaps about nothing...) >I totally laughed at this. I've never read that play, but it was still prettyyy funny. Hehe.

    Loved this post :)

    1. Thanks for stopping by Aaliyah!

      You know what else is funny?! I didn't even know (or remember) that I was quoting the play!

    2. That's hilarious! Actually as I was lying in bed last night I thought, what if she wasn't even quoting the play and I'm just being the usual nerd I am? LOL!

  2. first off i looooove your blog design. and also you're gorgeous.

    what made me happy today was the fact that i got to pick dandelions, the weather was amazing where i live, and i got to see my boyfriend.


    1. Thanks so much Emily!

      Ah! It sounds like you had a wonderful day! I'm so glad you stopped by!

  3. Something that makes me happy is seeing other peoples things that make them happy! ;) Seriously, as I'm reading this list I have a happy blossom in my heart because I know how wonderful it is to have these small blessings to be happy about! Today, we visited a plant nursery and I got a package in the mail and I just feel like my cup is filled to the brim!

    Could treating yourself involve a special treat? I guess we'll find out soon!

    Also, not sure if this is happening to anyone else, but I can't see any of your beautiful images! (The post image or the popular posts!)

    1. You know, finding happiness in the small, everyday things is something I'm working on! It's so refreshing and inspiring!

      Thank you for letting me know! As I was trying to de-clutter my Google+ page (which I don't really use!) I accidentally deleted all of my blogger images. They were somehow synced to Google+. Thankfully, I was able to re-upoad all of my pictures!

      Oh! With the panic of accidentally deleting my blogger photos, I completely forgot to make mention of how I treated myself! I'll be sure to reveal it soon :)

  4. I LOVE LISTS LIKE THISSSS. Happy things just make me happy even if I'm only reading about them and now actually doing them. hehe. ^.^ intense workouts + healthy dinners are so SATISFYINNNGG. also WHEAT THINS. ♥

    hope you're having a fabulous week!

    1. Thanks for stopping by Abbiee! Yay for happy things making us happy!

  5. I totally agree that there is so much more to life when we pause to enjoy the things around us! The little things hold pieces of God's kingdom is we bend t=down to see them, and I thank you for your post that reminded me of what it's like to /live/.

    As to what I'm happy for right now, I'm happy for some time to myself this evening, time to read blogs (I've been bad at that lately), pray, and study. I'm happy that my makeup turned out nice today, and I wore lipstick! I'm happy that I ate chocolate. I'm happy that I wore a hat. I'm happy that my kitty wanted lots of love today. I'm happy to read your post!

    1. Oh, and by the way, I nominated you for the Infinity Dreams Award forever ago, but life got in the way and I (regretfully) forgot to tell you until now. Surprise!
