100 Things

This isn’t a list of 100 things that make me happy—it’s a list of different experiences, feelings, and small moments that ignite a strong, positive emotion from me.

Many of the things listed do make me happy but there’s so much more to it than just that one emotion.

Like every person in this world, sometimes I feel sad, doubtful, or ungrateful. By writing down these 100 things (specific and random) I have something to remind myself that I have more good things to say or write than bad things. It’s to give myself a lesson that comes from my words when I refuse to believe advice given from others.

This list inspires me to become a happier person.
