50 Happy Things for 2015: Bloggers Unite in Flood of Gratitude

50 happy things for 2015

2015 is just about over, and I am taking stock of my year and getting ready for 2016. Today I’m joining a group of bloggers who are uniting to blog about 50 Happy Things for 2015 – and we would love for you to join us! If you’d like to join in, here’s how it works: set a timer for 10 minutes; timing this is critical. Once you start the timer, start your list. The goal is to write 50 things that made you happy in 2015, or 50 thing that you feel grateful for. The idea is to not think too hard; write what comes to mind in the time allotted. When the timer’s done, stop writing. If you haven’t written 50 things, that’s okay. If you have more than 50 things and still have time, keep writing; you can’t feel too happy or too grateful! When I finished my list, I took a few extra minutes to add links and photos. Dawn has a linky you can join on her blog if you decide to write a post!

  1. MaryAnne, SO happy you joined us, and happy to find your blog. What a wonderful list, filled with happy things and good energy!

    I’m hoping you see this, as your link didn’t work on the InLinkz. Try again, or message me and I’ll help you. I googled you to find this! Thanks again for participating!

  2. Hey Mamasmiles! I overanalyzed my list and only made it to 34. I’m fond of my dishwasher as well. It’s the little things right! Wishing you and the fam well.
