It’s really hard to always appreciate the things that make us happy or make us smile. These little blessings that make our lives full despite the struggles.
I’ve been seeing this idea around the Internet for the last week or so — 52 weeks of Happy. Most recently, I saw it on Adaliza’s blog and I’ve decided to join in the fun. I’m hoping that I can take this one to the end of the year too.
The idea is to list 4 things that make you happy each week. I like Adaliza’s version better — I’m going to record moments when I felt happy, things that made me smile, and unexpected blessings.
from L to R:
- Clean Eating
- Watching the New Year firework show from my living room window
- The last of the pomegranate — I love this fruit!
- An unexpected call from one of my favorite cousins — Anita. (source)
Great post – made me smile!

This week, I began seriously thinking about starting a gratitude journal. This blog by a good friend of mine is my inspiration. Despite work being fast-paced & busy, there MUST be good things about being an expatriate that I often forget/overlook and/or ignore. I’m still considering it, it may happen in the next few weeks IF I go ahead with the idea, and I may do it in a different time format (every other week or so instead of every week). Stay tuned.
There are always good things … no matter what our situation is. I find focusing on those stops us from literally jumping off the deep end. 😀
Best to you on that journey; I look forward to following it! ♥
No… thank YOU. ❤
This is such a sweet idea, I love it!
Try it!!! 😉
What a fabulous idea! It’s got me to thinking too about the many blessings, and taking a moment to recognize them. Wishing you 52 weeks of happy 🙂
And I wish the same for you too!!!
Wonderful idea! Love your list.
Thank you Andi! 😀
