The Happy List #5

For the past two months my family and I have been through a lot and it seems that it drained almost all the positivity in me and that sadness have succumbed me. And I think it's about time that i'll do my happy list because listing down the simplest joys - I believe can bring back some positivity in my life. 

"But I believe good things happen everyday. 
I believe good things happen even when bad things happen.
And I believe on a happy day like today, we can still feel a little sad.
And that’s life, isn't it?"
