80 Reasons to be Happy

“La felicidad para mi consiste en gozar de buena salud, en dormir sin miedo y despertarme sin angustia”

Happy International Day of Happiness!

All too often, we forget about the little things. These things that make big moments. Things that would be lost. Things that make you feel better inside. Sometimes, things get difficult, so difficult that we forget about all of the happiness that we once felt. We must not forget.

Perhaps things are difficult right now. Perhaps it seems like everything is going wrong. Perhaps you’re having a constant struggle with your mind. So, in case you have forgotten about them and need a boost of happiness. Here is a list of beautiful little things that make my life better. I may have thrown in some big moments, because it is the day to feel happy, after all.
