Things That Make Me Happy

Things That Make Me Happy -1

Life can be so draining and stressful for the most part. It’s so easy to focus on the bad and forget about what exactly makes us happy in life. Today I thought I would share a random post and list the Things That Make Me Happy.

“If I can lead a happy life, touch the lives of others in a positive way, win the respect of those that I care about – and make a few million along the way – then I have been successful. “- Bill Rancic

Such a random post I know! I have made it my mission to share more lifestyle posts with you guys and to share more personal posts too.

So, what does make me happy?

Lilly | I have to mention our newest addition to the family. Lilly has brought so much frustration, yet so much joy to our lives. Being able to come home to her every day, has been a highlight for Justin and I. I have also recently shared a post where I mentioned how Having a Puppy Changed My Life.

Justin | Another obvious point is that my fiancé makes me extremely happy. When it comes to finding love, I have honestly hit the jackpot! Justin and I will be getting married by the end of this year.  I honestly can’t express how happy that makes me. It’s rare to find the one person you know you are meant to be with and that’s how I feel about Justin. Never have I met someone who makes me feel the way I do. He supports me and has been my rock for these 4 years we have been together.

Blogging | Blogging has really brought passion to my life. I’ve always felt lost, not knowing what to do with my life. Living a life with not having anything you are passionate about it, not a life I would want to live. Finding something that I am really passionate about. Blogging has been a life jacket for me. I wasn’t able to study or to find what I am passionate about career wise. Blogging has given me something to work and it’s something I really love doing.

Pizza & Wine | My love for pizza and wine is unreal! I could literally have it every night if it was up to me! Netflix, wine, and pizza. What more could a girl ask for?

Raining Days | If you aren’t from South Africa, then you might not know that Cape Town is experiencing a major drought. It just happens to be the city I live in and has become a major concern for its residents. Cape Town has sadly not received the rain it needs to supply to all households. It’s been really tough trying to save as much water as we can. I haven’t been able to take a decent shower in weeks. I am a total homebody, nothing makes me happier than spending a raining day in bed with my loves, watching Netflix, having wine and pizza!! See what I did there?

I would really love to know what makes you happy? Let me know in the comment section below.

    Ah this is such a lovely post and it’s so nice to see what people enjoy and what makes them happy – congratulations on your wedding at the end of the year too, will you be sharing pictures?

    On another note, I didn’t know that about Cape Town – it’s meant to be such a beautiful place but we rarely hear things that are going on like that and you wouldn’t think that in this day and age there would be a water shortage – hope it all gets back to normal for you soon! 🙂

    Hope you’re well and cannot wait to see more posts – might get a pizza tonight after reading this hahaha 🙂

    I loved this post Candice. It’s so important to surround yourself with things & people that make you happy. We just recently started getting some rain. I wish I could send some your way. You really miss it when it doesn’t rain. It helps so much. Things that make me happy is my mom, watching Netflix, traveling, blogging, walking (exercising) and learning new things.

    I want to thank you so much for your comment on my post. Thanks for sharing your story. I find that sharing what we’ve been through may help others. It’s important to do so. It helps heal. It helps encourage.

    I’ve read about the problems with the water shortage in Cape Town – that must be so challenging! I love rainy days too, although it feels like I’m in the minority here in England because it rains so much and it really annoys people!

    Aww, this is such a lovely post – really brought a smile to my face!
    I definitely think getting a pet can change your life for the better – I’ve been so much happier since I got mine!

    I’m with you on pizza and wine – I could have those every day and never get bored!

    Not really wine but pizza and netflix, those two things I could definitely have every day! Actually, Netflix in general makes me happy.
