Share on FacebookTweet about this on TwitterGoogle+Pin on PinterestEmail to someone

If there is one topic I am more interested in than traveling, it’s HAPPINESS. I seriously think that’s our reason to be alive, to be and share it with others. Lately I have been filling up my Five Minute Gratitude Journal with the things I am happy about/grateful for. Today, I looked back at it and decided to share some of it with you. I hope it inspires you to create a similar list of your own and keep it close with you whenever you need a secret shifter or just to feel good. Here is my 50+ things that make me happy:
