10 truly happy things that we need to cherish

Happiness! It changes from time to time. Things that made us happy a while back may not necessarily do now. When I was a kid, new frocks and Barbie dolls used to make me happy. When I was a teen, getting beautifully photographed and bagging lots of compliments used to make me happy. But now neither that nor this make me happy. Also, recently my dad got me a brand new mobile phone which costs a small fortune, and that didn’t make me happy either. Then I thought to myself to make a list of 10 things that indeed makes me happy so that I can know myself better.

To my surprise, none of the ten things I have listed, are related to money at all. Then I understood that much of the happiest things could not be bought with cash. Of course, we need money, but it’s not everything. The best part here is that these 10 things I have listed make everyone happy, not only me. It’s just that we couldn’t realize their worth sometimes or we overlook them. It’s high time we appreciate these little things that truly make us happy.

Ten things that truly make us happy

Here comes my list of 10 things that make me happy. This might also be your list. Check it out and comment how many of these 10 things are your happy things as well.

Also, check out 5 stupidest things we do.

1. Appreciation

Number 1 happy thing for me (even, everyone’s) is appreciation. It might be a few words like “you look good” or “you work hard” but these words definitely make our day better. Recognition will give us all new energy that will help us keep going all day.

4. When I was some sort of help to my family

This is one of my delightful things. I’m sure it’s also one of your happy things. Whenever I was of some help to my family even for the simplest of things, I feel excellent about myself. Let it be paying bills or helping in domestic chores or slapping those who try to hurt them. Lol!! It makes me super chuffed.

5. Time spent with nature

Everybody loves to spend some quality time with nature, but it’s becoming difficult in this busy times. All we do is sit in front of laptops and scroll our Facebook newsfeed. A little bird told me that if something makes us happy, we should make time for it. So, make sure to spare some time for the things you love.

6. Hanging out with my best friend

Every minute we spend with our best friend is a moment to cherish. Whenever I hang out with my best friend, we do nothing much than sit, talk and eat still; we feel if there’s little more time to spend. LOL! This is my most favorite thing to do.

7. Worship

By worship, I mean to be peaceful and calming our brains at least for some time every day. In these busy times, our minds are continuously working with jet-speed. To have the strength to go to the next day work, we need to calm ourselves at the end of the day regularly.

8. When you have support from your people

When we have a problem and our people, say “we got your back” will give us a lot of strength to fight back our problems. That support is one of these 10 things we need to acknowledge and cherish.

9. Sleeping after a long tiresome day

After a long work day, that peaceful sleep I get is so much satisfying than lazing around all day and kept tossing and turning in the night.

10. Some time with just myself

Last but not least of these 10 things is a little me-time. Whenever I feel low, all I need is some me-time. It will help me regain my confidence and boost up my spirits. Some me-time will help me work out things and plan what to do next. It’s also fun to stay alone once in a while.

10 things

These are the 10 happy things that I cherish all the time, I think you should too. Also, there’s an additional one apart from these 10 happy things; it’s F.R.I.E.N.D.S. LOL!! Clap, clap, clap, clap! You can see that in this whole article. Now it’s your turn, comment down what makes you happy.
