My Happy List

 

It all started when I was going through PMS and badly needed a happy pill.

I asked myself, “what makes me happy?”

I  decided to jot down the things that make me happy cos scribbling on my chalkboard itself makes me happy.

This list made me happy instantly and changed my mood in a jiffy.. best pick-me-up idea ever!

This is MY Happy List.. silly and peppy.

Not sure if you could relate to any of what I’ve mentioned above(it’s OK,I’m unique like that), do share the list with me if you make one.
