LIFESTYLE: MY HAPPY 100 - ISH

poses.moda Easter is a beautiful holiday. It marks a new season, and life. Things start turning green, flowers start blooming, people walk with a pep in their step! People are just plain old happier. It's also a time for gratitude for me. Whenever I think of this, my number one is my HEALTH. I can't put into words how valuable, and precious your health is.

I also like to think of alllll the little things that make me happy. I'm blessed with many things, and never, ever take a n y t h i n g for granted. I express my love and happiness in every step. To me it's the little things that make me happy.

So as we embark this new season aka 'Happy Season' write a list of all the things that make you happy. This is SO good to have, because when you have lower days, we ALL have them!!! Re-read this list. I promise you, you will, smile, your heart will warm, and you will be gracious for all that you DO HAVE.
