Tigerlilly Quinn: a happiness list

a happiness list


It's been ages and ages since I've done one of these posts but I have so much (so much!) to be thankful for I always love thinking about all the positive things in life. It's even nicer to read back on old list's, especially when I was pregnant.
So here are then things I'm happy about right now:

1, Spending more than two days in a row with my little family, running around the garden and playing 'piggy-in-the-middle' until we are laughing so hard we are all snorting like piggies!
2, Feeling inspired and excited about my work
3, Making new friends, keeping in touch with old ones
4, Oil pulling, the difference it's making to my teeth is making me happy!
5, When Wilf say's 'lets take our socks off and dance!' and we all do
6, Little hands around me neck as he nuzzles into my hair and tells me 'you are the best mummy' and I tell him 'you are my best boy'
7, Ridding our house of so much junk, I am feeling more zen for sure ;)
8, Cava wednesday's with my mama friends, parents, I recommend it
9, Coffee, always coffee
10, Date nights with my boyfriend, holding hands, planning the future, our hopes and dreams all together with my favourite people

What would go on your happy list right now?

I love your list and hope that you achieve all of it soon.

I adore this idea, it's just too easy to concentrate on negatives rather than all the positives we have, a lovely list of happy.
I've been reading up on oil pulling over the weekend, sounds interesting!

Claire Toplis said...

I love your list, you are wonderful

Fiona Naughton said...

This is such a lovely post Fritha. Your boy telling you that you're the best mummy is the sweetest, I can't wait for these moments with my little one, for now I'll take his 'awwww' meaning that he loves me! :)

That is a lovely list and I agree it's one of the best feelings ever having little arms around your neck and listening to the tell you your the best or simply saying "love you mummy!" x

Eleanor (thebristolparent) said...

Would love to know what oil pulling is! Really like your list, especially the family dancing.

Kerry Louise said...

What a lovely list! I'm also wondering what oil pulling is x

Chez Mummy said...

This is a great idea. It would certainly help me to focus on everything that's good in my life when other little (often insignificant) things cause me stress. Smiles from my children are something that always make me feel better - pure heart-melting stuff

Wild & Grizzly said...

Such a good list, I've been struggling these last two weeks to be positive so this is a nice reminder on how to do so. Drinks soon please. x

Never heard of oil pullig before, sounds interesting! Super list, I have so much to be thankful for lately!

sonya said...

Lovely list, and it is always good to find time to acknowledge the good things! I keep meaning to try oil pulling- I read about it during a recent root canal problem and it sounded like a really good thing for your teeth- it's the 20 minute but that is putting me off!

Helen said...

What a fab list, I hope you manage to achieve everything. Could you please explain what oil pulling is please?

Nayna Kanabar said...

Oil pulling, what is that I have never heard of it.

Oana Chirila said...

Love the idea, inspired me to write my own list! Oil pulling, heard about it before, good to hear it actually works and it's not only a trick you read about on health sites!

Kathryn (Kat got the Cream) said...

Lovely list Fritha. I've been blogging a Happy List every week for over a year now and it's really nice to look back on them and remember all the simple stuff that made me smile. As they say the little things are actually the big things in life xx

pinkoddy said...

What a great list. I have so much to be happy about right now and am doing the #embracehappy - which I think helps. Mostly it is to do with how lucky I am with my family. No I haven't heard of oil pulling either.

Jess@AlongCameCherry said...

I can't believe the difference oil pulling has made to the colour of my teeth! Can totally do 20 mins without even realising it now too! x

Oh love your list, small and simple pleasures are what make up the day :) Oh what kind of oil do you use for the oil pulling? Coconut. I love the relaxing days in the garden, slowing ourselves down and enjoying the moment
