As someone who has previously had depression it is important to me to think of the things that make me happy. It is important to not take things for granted however I found that thinking of 50 things was difficult. But once I got into it I found it easy, there are so many things that make me happy and I am so lucky to have all these things in my life!
1-My baby brother makes me so happy, being a big sister has been the best blessing I’ve ever had.
2-My mum honestly makes me so happy, whenever I am down or needing advice she is the first person I turn to and my true best friend.
3-Jordan makes me happy- of course- having the support of such a wonderful boyfriend, he is such a sweet soul and I constantly feel loved and appreciated. In recent weeks my confidence has rocketed and because of his support about things and especially my writing, he has helped my writing. I could honestly go on about him constantly but I won’t.
4- Despite work sometimes stressing me out I am so happy I have a job, the customers I deal with daily are usually lovely and working in a jeweller honestly is so fun and lovely. You see so many men trying to find the perfect ring for their partners, happy couples looking for wedding bands together and families buying gifts for one another.
5-University makes me happy- the fact that my hard work all those years amounted to something makes me happy and believe in myself more.
7-Food makes me happy-mostly chocolate
8- Writing makes me so happy, especially when I write from my soul which I find so cathartic
9-Lists, which is odd but they really help me organise which takes me to my next point:
10-Organising things- clothes/underwear/shoes/paperwork! Anything that I’m able to organise I will do it and be so happy about it.
12-Doing my makeup/hair
13-Going on cute dates with Jordan, I love the whole experience, getting ready to go, planning the date and actually being out with him too
14-Watching football, even when my team loses!
16-Puppies, especially French Bulldogs

18-Seriously I really love chocolate-like a lot
19- Watching my favourite Tv programme after a day at work
