20 Things that Make Fun People Smile

I don’t know about y’all but the things that make me happy are not-so-stereotypical. (Well, most of them) So I wanted to make a list of all of them so I could come back to this post whenever I wanted to feel better and turn my frown is upside down. So this post won’t be your typical “Things to Smile About” post, that is bombarded with photos of children blowing bubbles, hope for world peace and avocados. Instead, feast your eyes on these smile-worthy photos and thoughts that will put a little bit of some sweet and sparkly light in your life.

1. Butterflies

Yeah the first item on this list is butterflies. Why? Because the first thing I thought about when I thought about happiness, is the joy i get out of seeing a butterfly following me while I am on a stroll in the park. Sounds cheesy as hell but hey, it makes me smile and if makes you smile too. (Well, unless, of course, you have a heart that is darker than my coffee).

2. Glitter

I know what your thinking: “Why isn’t this number 1!?” Well, my friends, that is because this isn’t an “in-order” ranked list, and secondly, that would have been WAY too predictable coming from me. πŸ˜‰ Now about that glitter…

6. Singing in the Shower

We all do it. If you don’t, you need to, because it makes you smile so big! Particularly when you get really into it. You gotta grab the shampoo bottle and use it as your mic, pretend your other bottles are the audience and the water coming down is a spot light! It is magical and your voice always sounds better in the shower. πŸ˜‰

7. Disco Balls

Oh, yes. Mr. Disco Ball. He has been so good to me the past decade. I grin every time I see one. Not just any grin, but the kind of grin that makes your eyes sparkle. Kind of like the face kids make when they get told they’re going to Disney World.

8. Packages at the Door

The smell of happiness is equivalent to the sweet, sweet scent of that Amazon Prime cardboard box. New candle scent anyone?
