101 Things That Make Me Happy

I'm an excitable person. Maybe it's the autistic side of me, but I tend to get highly excited over a lot of things. I've been like that since a kid. Peep this picture of me:


It's my philosophy in life that you can find joy in just about everything; there is always a silver lining to situations. I may not always look at things realistically, but I say that it's better to be an optimist than a pessimist.

I surround myself with things that make me smile daily. Take it from me, it's not easy to be happy all of the time, but it's easier when you identify things that make you feel all warm and tingly and surround yourself with it.

So without further ado, here are 101 things that make me happy.
