Pursuit of Happiness


Blehhh, it's Monday! I'm sitting here, sipping my second cup of coffee of the day and feeling very unmotivated. There's something about Mondays that just makes me generally unhappy. I guess I'm feeling a little bit of the monday blues. I hate having to say goodbye to the weekend and hello to the week. Uhg! Play time is over and I have another week of school and work ahead of me. Hurray! NOT.

Now that it's 2014, one of my new years resolutions is to think more positively and to be happier. One way to do this is to reflect on the things in life that make me happy instead of focusing on the negative. If you dwell on all the bad that is happening in life, you'll end up feeling sad. It's all about attitude. So to start out my weeks on a more positive note, I will be posting 5 things that make me happy, every Monday! Hopefully this will help me to develop a better attitude throughout the week, while inspiring others to be happy as well.

I was inspired to do this post from a wonderful blog I came across the other day called Sofia's Journal. She has a whole series called "100 things that make me happy." If y'all haven't seen her blog, I'd recommend that you do so! I love her style of writing and her posts are very fun and original!

#1 The smell of rain


#2 Burning candles


#3 Popping bubble wrap



#4 Adorable babies


#5 Panda's
