International National Day of Happiness

Nothing like a good day of International Happiness, so I am making a list of EVERYTHING that I can think of that makes me happy. I have actually been working on this particular post for a couple of weeks, so that I can cover as much happiness as I can. There is no rhyme or reason to this list, it just is. You might even find a couple that you agree with.

What about you? What are a couple of things that just instantly make you happy?

  • When either my puppy or my partners cat tongue gets stuck outside their mouth, it’s just so cute.
  • When I’m craving something and I don’t know what I’m craving and somehow, very randomly, I eat something and it’s that something that I was craving.
  • The smell of my black candles, I don’t know what it is, but there smell is intoxicating, so I use them very little, as the shops ran out of that particular candle.
  • Cuddling up with any of my plushies.
  • Choosing “random shuffle” on my ipod and getting all the songs in a row that match my mood.
  • The funny air hugs I have with a particular coworker, since she found out with some people I get funny with hugging them. It’s turned into our little joke, we air hug, air chest bump.
  • Those nights/days that you get to yourself, you have nothing to do but veg out.
  • When I make it through an entire drive without panicking too much.
  • I love it when I can watch Twitch, Safari Live and play games at the same time. Usually only happens on a Saturday.
  • Christmas Day spent with my Mums side of the family.
  • The Christmas Eve Barbecue we’ve started having with people we’re close to but don’t get to see on Christmas.
  • Real Husbands of Hollywood, Last Week Tonight with John Oliver and Homicide Hunter. I never ever watch these shows just in the background.
  • All my favourite musicals.
  • Just sitting and doing nothing and NOT feeling guilty about it.
  • Being in a car and just having a normal conversation without feeling any of my odd anxiety issues.
  • When you buy clothes online and it all fits perfectly…Especially pants and shoes!
  • When I have more money in my bank account than I had expected.

Cravings

I really do love it when a random thought hits my brain sometimes it’s kind of like:

 Brain, Simpson

Any-ways, I was reading a few reviews on some really big movies over the weekend and I saw the same “complaint” about how, even though these movies have been proving really successful…”Hollywood can’t come up with original”.

Then seeing this over and over, and although I agree, and realising that I don’t even mind because I enjoy these movies so much. I started to think to myself, most of the movies coming out are either:

a) reminiscent of my childhood,
b) are “simple” and by that I mean, they have big bangs and bad guys vs good guys.

Then it occurred to me, maybe that’s it? Maybe that’s why these “unoriginal” movies are doing so well? Maybe we’re all craving more simplicity in our lives? A reminder of when time was more simple? I don’t know about you all, but I’ve never noticed a really annoying trend, where everything is bad these days, and on the great big grand scale of things they are really not bad things. When you think about these “bad things” you think to yourself, if that’s the biggest complaint in your life, you have it pretty darn good.

Chinese Food!

How have I NEVER talked about the magic that is Chinese food! Whether you are into Panda Express (which I loved when I was in Arizona) or your local small business family run restaurant, I think that Chinese and Asian food may be the one of the most magical foods on the planet! Just writing this is making me literally crave it.

It tastes amazing when you crave it, when you don’t crave it and then start craving it when you start to eat it. To have it though when you have a massive hangover…Oh, it makes what I feel magically go away, every-time! I think that I maybe a little bit addicted to it to be honest.
