I started out writing my journal
every day almost daily since 2016. It was all to keep track of the small little things of happiness happening left and right while hassling through life and being a responsible bill paying adult.
So for #internationaldaofhappiness I figured why not combine some of those things and do a post and get all the happiness out of me. Making a list and what better way to make a list than do it in order. So here is my alphabet of happiness.
A … ASPARAGUS season because it is one of the few things you can not get year round and I always look forward to it. Same with strawberries!
B…BERLIN. When I see the tv tower my heart skips a bit. It’s where I belong.
C…COUCH DAYS. Because you can’t run around all the time.
D… DRAWING because if I’m lucky I slip in a mind of total concentration and forget time and space. Also happens with some other crafting.
E…E♥︎♥︎♥︎ aka Mr. ♥︎ somehow he manages to make me laugh even when I’m in a really crappy mood.
F… FRESH AIR to breath.
G…GRAVEYARDS hardly any other place were you can feel so much love and appreciation in the world, were I get grounded and get a feel for the important things in life. It is so peaceful and quiet.
H…HUGGS. Because it’s just nice.
I…IDAHO I fell in love with the landscape at first glance, some of the people as weird as they may be and I made some of the best memories there. Coming back now feels a bit like coming home.
J… JEWELRY mainly my handmade things. It always makes me feel complete wearing earrings.
K… KEKSE & KUCHEN ok I have to cheat and put some German in here but cookies & cake can’t be missed. It’s my go to when being sad (I know bad habit but still better than smoking or drinking), baking is fun and I love to try new recipe and combine different ones. So yes, happy!
L… LOVE I mean who doesn’t like to be loved and appreciated.
M… MARATHON of binge watching a new series.
N… NO MIGRAINE need I say more?!
O… OUTDOOR activities. Unfortunately I do them not nearly often enough. But the fresh air when taking a walk, the wind in my hair when riding the bike, the smells…
P…PEANUTBUTTER and that is a huge surprise. Because before 1999 I didn’t even know that existed. That is when I first set foot to the USA. I despised it my entire stay there. Only when I got homesick I bought myself a jar and was hooked. Crazy how that goes.
R…READING. New found old hobby. Lets be friends on Goodreads.
S…SNOW Fluffy, white and beautiful. What is not to love about it. And yes I believe I can smell snow just like Lorelei Gilmore. And I do get out when it happens, At four in the morning if need be.
T…TRAVEL. Because it is always nice to discover new things and explore. Makes you so much more tolerable.
U… UN-INTERUPTED sleep. Not waking up every time there is some sound outside – magic! Sleeping past 7am even better!
V… VALET. Usually I use the public transport or my bike to get places. But ever since last year when I started working in Düsseldorf part time Mr. 🖤 is always picking me up at the train when I arrive close to midnight. Makes my heart jump.
W… WATER. I realized in the last couple years that water makes me happy. So I would love living at the water front. A lake or a river or a bay or whatever tiny bit of water. It just has immediate calming effect. My plan: win the lottery. Move to a waterfront home. Totally manageable.
X… XMAS what else. Everyone reading along longer than one post probably knows it is my favorite time of year. If you happen to be new here. Stay and enjoy. And if you need to get into the mood go check out my advent & christmas collection.
Y…YOGA. If I ever get around to do it I feel good afterwards.
Z…ZEN TEA. I just discovered this new tea and it is to die for. Seriously.
Now who thought that wasn’t fun. Feel free to join in the in and share your list. Link back so I can read along.
Happy day to you,
