Focus On What Makes You Happy

Despite the fact that it is my favorite month out of the entire year, October has been a pretty terrible month. The Las Vegas shooting and the California wildfires have had everything to do with that. My in-laws unfortunately lost their home and everything inside, as did their neighbors.

As a society, we spend a lot of time looking at how sad the world is, without taking into account that to every yin there's a yang, to every down there's an up, etc., etc. This post is to focus on the good that has come of October. So without further adieu, I present to you, a list of things that have made me happy this month.

If you're like me, you love everything about the fall season. The changing leaves, the breezy air, the indulgence in sugar and alcohol until you basically give yourself diabetes and develop alcoholism. It makes me happy to walk into Target and see the first signs of Halloween, the employees unpacking boxes of fake pumpkins and Halloween costumes, and to see the orange bags of candy piled up on the shelves.

My baby turned 8-months yesterday (unbelievable). It makes me happy to see how much she is learning every single day. She has two teeth, is currently getting into everything, and says 'mama' and 'dada.' That, makes me so happy.

It makes me happy to have a huge cup of coffee in the morning, to smell it brewing and know that THAT is literally liquid energy.

It makes me happy to pick through Granny Smith apples at the grocery store, knowing they'll soon be turned into caramel apples or apple pie (because seriously who eats Granny Smith apples by themselves.... okay, I know ONE person who does).

NBA, NFL, planning a Thanksgiving menu, flannel sheets, less shedding from my animals, cinnamon brooms, clove candles, pumpkin picking, warm vegetable soups, spiced (and spiked) cider. There are so many things to make us happy, I challenge you to write down (or think of) five of your own.
