Happy things

It’s day two of Journaling July and I’m running out of time to journal. Worse, I don’t really have anything to journal about. So, I thought I’d look at the photos on my phone for inspiration. And that’s when I saw the folder “happy things” where I store photos of random things that make me smile.

So today, you get a list of happy things! And I’ll give you 31 of them, since there are 31 days in Journaling July. Ready? Let’s go!

31 happy things (in no particular order)

  1. 13 cookies in a 12-cookie pack
  2. Googly eyes on statues (like in the photo with this story)
  3. Flowers growing in the middle of a rock wall
  4. Finding a pretty bottle of glitter nail polish on the sidewalk (losing it was probably sad for someone else though)
