    Liked seeing your tweets too, but as someone who always feels like deleting her account, I can understand. I want to do this exercise here, it will be the first time I’d put such thoughts down but I’m shy because many people will see it. Lol. Maybe, I’ll do it in my journal instead. Thanks for sharing!

      Do it where you are comfortable, The important thing is that you do it! It feels good 🙂

    Before i read your list, i said to myself “i dont think i have that many things that make me happy” this made me kinda sad. But then i saw your list and realized a lot of the things on the list- with some minor changes- make me happy. I guess,its the little things combined with the big things.

    • Reply Sabirah June 20, 2012 at 2:49 pm

      exactly! I make a note of really appreciating the little things in life so writing this list was easy. it also helps general happiness 😀
      Thanks for stopping by
