100 Things That Makes Me Happy…


On 30th March 2017, a dear friend of mine Ama Nyakoa, sent me a link to her “100 things that makes me happy” and I thought it was very creative, ‘cos I now knew 100 things that made her happy, which was pretty cool. But I was a little sad because my favorite brand of car wasn’t part of her 100 things that made her happy. I thought the 100 list was pretty long but to my surprise she actually came up with 150, but managed to cut it down to 100. Point is, once you start writing, you realizes a lot of things make you happy.

On that note, she dared me to come up with my “100 things that makes me happy”, she asked me to start with my favorite food if I happen to struggle with coming up with the things that makes me happy. It’s been six months now, I guess I’ve had enough time to come up with 100 things that makes me happy, I hope you enjoy my list, in no particular order 🙂
