Recently, I have been hurting for a lot of things I don’t have or haven’t achieved yet. Feeling crushed by the stress of everything I have planned and the timeline is getting shorter and shorter but I feel like I am not getting any closer. It is so easy to get wrapped in the negative part of life, which is unfortunately why I have spent a lot of my time there. Luckily for me, I can remind myself of all of the good things I have in this life. While it is important to acknowledge that not everyone has this luxury and it cannot fix everything, it is a great tool to utilize to ground yourself and recognize the balance between the good and bad. Even in the depth of rock bottom, there can always be one little thing that you enjoy. In case you, too, need a reminder of what these little things look like, I have compiled 100 of things that make me happy. I hope these things remind you of the little things you enjoy as well in this tough time of the semester!
