Do What Makes You Happy

Friday, October 12, 2018

Do you listen to the radio when you are driving to work?
I am not a talk radio person, but I can't help but listen to The Bobby Bones show in the morning.

The whole crew is always so upbeat.
They can definitely put me in a good mood even on the hardest mornings.

With that said, today I wanted to share a few things that bring me joy :)

It can instantly take me to a different place.
I have always had a love affair with music.
I swear when I hear a song I am transported into the most memorable time I heard it.
At a wedding, a school dance, at my grandma's house, riding in a car, etc.
There are even some that instantly take me back to a break up :/
I love the beat of the music and the story the song tells.
There are a few songs currently that put be in a good mood the second I catch them on the radio.

I also have these songs that I turn on the second I need to feel better.

This obviously goes hand and hand with music, but there are a lot of people out there who don't dance.
Not even a little bit.
I have a hard time not dancing.

My Family
As much as they can stress me out, they can make me happy.

Working out
I swear in another life I was a personal trainer or professional athlete.
I really do love working out!
A straight cardio workout isn't the most fun, but I still feel great once I did it.
I love all kinds of exercise.
I think this stems from the fact that I don't like to sit still for very long. 

Spending time with friends
I mentioned before that while I have a lot of friends, I am loner.
I never really understood the importance of spending time with friends.
Now I crave it!

I can't call myself a reader...I prefer pictures over words every day of the week!
However, I did listen to A Tribe Called Bliss and Kind is the New Classy on Audible and LOVED THEM!!!!
Keeping with the theme of feeling good about yourself,
I picked up the 52 Lists for Happiness over the weekend.

Have you heard of it?
It's from the author of The 52 Lists Project.
I dove right into List #1 this week and it totally fits with my post today :)

So now I want to know...What makes you happy?
Comment below or shoot me an email -

Hope you all have a joy filled weekend!

XOXO ~ Vanessa

Linking up with The Blended Blog, Andrea, Narci & Erika today :)


  1. I have that 52 weeks of lists book, but I stopped writing in it a while ago. Maybe I'll take it out again. I love lists though. I like 2 of the bands that you mentioned Ac/dc & Megadeth. I love being alone, but it is really great to get together with your friends too.

    1. I am four weeks in now, and it is a struggle! I just second guess my own thoughts! Lol!
      Love good rock bands!
