Happy things:

falling in love, laughing so hard your face hurts, a hot shower, no lines at the market, a special glance, taking a drive on a quiet road, hearing your favorite song on the radio, lying in bed listening to the rain outside, hot towels fresh out of the dryer, chocolate milkshake, a bubble bath, giggling, the sounds of a church bell in the distance, the sound of a train whistle in the distance, a fresh breeze coming into the window, the smell of a fresh cut lawn, planting flowers and helping them grow, helping others, a genuine smile as you pass a stranger, getting a "quick note" from a friend or loved one, just saying "hello", they miss you, or that you have moved them in some way.

a good conversation, the sea, laughing at yourself, looking into their eyes and knowing they love you, running through sprinklers, laughing for absolutely no reason at all, having someone tell you that you're beautiful, family, religion, laughing at an inside joke with friends, others supporting what you do, accidentally overhearing someone say something nice about you, giving your time to others for no more than "just because", volunteering, the sound of an instrument playing softly, sailing, someone doing something sweet for you for no other reason, other than they care.

waking up and realizing you still have a few hours left to sleep, your first kiss (either the very first or with a new partner), making new friends or spending time with old ones, playing with a new puppy, having someone play with your hair, sweet dreams, hot chocolate, having best friends, being able to love others in good and bad times, hearing that a close friend loves you the way you are, seeing a gesture from a friend that makes your heart smile, a walk in the rain, sharing an umbrella.

road trips, swinging on swings, holding hands with someone you care about, running into an old friend, watching the sunrise/set, getting out of bed every morning and being grateful for another beautiful day, knowing that somebody misses you, showing the people around you how much you care, a good book, when someone REALLY gets your joke, making sweet things for others, supporting others in what they do, never judging, giving advice, letting them make mistakes, and being there to celebrate if they succeed, or to lift them up if they fall.

getting a hug from someone you care about deeply, a walk in the woods or along the beach, the rain, a good cup of coffee, a quiet smile, nature, feeling good in your heart, laughing so hard with a friend, someone making something nice for you, being silly, and knowing you've done the right thing, no matter what other people think.
