200 Things To Make You Happy

Happiness is...

Happiness really is an attitude... a perspective if you must. Somedays are good and somedays aren't so good, but, it it is the way that you think about it that will make all the difference.

Being happy is up to you. Looking at the different things in life that brings you happiness is a great way to improve your mood.

For my 200th hub, I wanted to do something special. Therefore, I have come up with 200 different things that have either made people I know, or myself happy. I can't stress enough how happy my husband, my kids, my family, and my wonderful friends make me on a daily basis. However, in this list, I tried to spread out the joy and put other things in there that aren't always mentioned.

I hope you enjoy this list and find a little bit of happiness in it!

Smile - it looks good on you!

Smile's are contagious... so pass one on!

The world is bigger than us

The world is a big place, and frankly us humans are small in comparison. Sights like this really put into perspective how small our problems really are.

Grace Whites from Manalapan, New Jersey, USA on May 10, 2012:

I certainly agree with your ideas. I'm happy reading your hubs. I hope that you can post another hub that will make me happy again. I will wait to read your next hub. Keep up your good work.

@cabmgmnt - Sounds like you have plenty of good reasons to be happy and keep on smiling! :)

I kicked my melanoms's @ss and just meet my brand new 8 hour old niece for the first time yesterday. They both made me very very happy and this hub made me happy, too! Thanks!

@Ruchira - Ha ha - I had so many good suggestions after it was written I really should do a second part!... Might have to wait until I get to 300 hubs to make it another milestone hub! :)

Ruchira from United States on May 09, 2012:

@poisonx3girlx3 - That too is one of my favorites. I was playing with my son the other day and just hearing him giggle made me happy! It is like instant endorphins. Glad you enjoyed this! Thanks for stopping by! :)

I love that you included the idea of putting a smile on a child's face. I know that my son's giggle is contagious and can make me smile, even when I think there is no reason to be happy. Just hearing him giggle makes me want to laugh along.

@thinbythirty - That first hub is always daunting... even getting to the 10 mark seems like a task, but the more you sit down and write the higher the numbers get. So when you are at 1 wondering how in the world will you ever get that many ideas, soon, you are looking back realizing it is possible. Thanks for stopping by and glad I could give you some inspiration! :)

thinbythirty from Brandon, FL on February 15, 2012:

Congrats on your 200th hub! I hope to get there soon. Today is day one and hub #1 for myself! Thanks for the smiley inspiration!

@iiimusicfreak27 - Glad you loved this. I think it is super important to spread smiles and spread happiness. It definitely brightens up the day! :)

Stephanie Rivera-Rios on February 02, 2012:

Absolutely love this! Definitely put a smile on my face:D

@pooilum - Thanks for stopping by. Hope it brought a smile to your face. Then I know that I did my job! :)

@Marellen - Meeting Real was so much fun. We had a blast and it definitely was way to short. She is just as great in person as she is through here. It was kind of an impromput trip but they went to Vegas and since I am only a short 4 hour drive away... I just couldn't pass up the opportunity. Thanks for stopping by and I promise to keep them coming!

Stacy Harris (author) from Hemet, Ca on January 30, 2012:

@Sunnie Day - I will give you the Saints... but only in the comments ;) Glad that you enjoyed this and cheers to many more! :)

Stacy Harris (author) from Hemet, Ca on January 30, 2012:

@Jangaplanet - It is never too late.. especially when it comes to something that makes you think of what makes you happy. I am glad the older you get the happier you become. I think part of it is the social pressures drop some and you have found out who you really are. If you like that person, happiness comes naturally. :)

marellen on January 29, 2012:

Great list and I didn't know you and Real met. That is awesome. I love your hubs and can't wait for the next 200. Keep them coming.

Sunnie Day on January 29, 2012:

Congrats on your 200th hub!..I have sure enjoyed reading them I love your lists..of course I would have to change Packers to Saints..but its okay..:) I hope we enjoy many more.

Hug,

Sunnie
