100 Things That Make Me Happy // MHP


You may have read in my post called Deep Thoughts, that I haven't been feeling very good lately. Honestly, its like the Somme (the battle of....) in my head sometimes. But I'm trying to get better. I have told people about it now, and its working so far. Then when I was *mindlessly* browsing Pinterest over the weekend, I saw something called 'The Happiness Project' and I thought it might cheer me up to make my own 'Happiness Project'. Some of this project I will share with you, but some of it I wont, I might make this into a series if it goes well, let me know if you'd be interested in that! If I do, its shall be called MHP, because I am too lazy to write it all out. #noshame

But to start off my Happiness Project, I thought I'd write a list of all the things that I love and that make me happy. These are in no particular order by the way. Here goes:
