Hello, friends! I am currently loving life right now as I am writing this post. I am currently sitting in my local coffee shop, sipping on an iced caramel macchiato and munching down on an everything bagel with cream cheese. Life is good, y’all, life is good.
I was tagged by Storytellingcook from Recipe in a Bottle to do the “Happiness Tag”, in which you list five things that make you happy and encourage others to do the same. Here are five things that make me happy:
I love discovering new things, whether it may be hobbies, like photography or blogging, or new places like the amazing brunch place I discovered the other day. It’s always nice to take a break from the same old routine and spice things up a little bit.
I am a self-proclaimed foodie. I watch The Cooking Channel regularly, am always on the lookout for new restaurants, and love to cook. I’m always inspired by the chefs that I see on The Cooking Channel, because they’re so passionate about their food. For them, cooking is more than creating tasty dishes. It’s about connecting people with each other, memories, and different cultures. For me, the bagel that I’m currently eating is just a bagel, but it’s definitely reminding me why I love food so much.
#3: Spending quality time with friends and family
Some of my favorite days are days when I’m hanging out with my friends and family. Especially now that I’m going to college, it’s important for me to stay connected to the people that I love. Whether that be through a coffee date where my friend and I talk for hours or a board game that my whole family gets into, there’s nothing better than this time.
I don’t think I could ever be happy in an environment where I’m not able to be creative. I once heard a quote that says, “Creativity is intelligence having fun”. Creativity is definitely a relative term that is used differently by people. For me, creativity means being able to have fun and put a bit of myself into what I do. When I’m creating a character on stage or creating a painting on canvas, I love being able to make the final product what I want.
#5: Chill time at the end of the day
Every night, after I get ready to go to bed, I sit in bed with either my laptop, my phone, or a book and relax a bit before I go to sleep. Let me tell you, hunkering down with an episode of Friends and a cozy blanket at the end of the day is pure bliss and it definitely keeps me happy.
Alright, you guys! I hope you enjoyed this post! I am going to leave the people I tag to do this tag below, but I encourage you all to recreate this post and reflect on what makes you happy. Let’s spread the happiness, people! If you’re not into writing a whole post on the Happiness Tag, tell me: What makes you happy?
