15 Reasons To Be Happy

image found via Google image

Every morning I receive a message from Tut.com called "Notes From the Universe." Each day I feel as if the author is speaking directly to me.

Yesterday's message was this: Every single minute of every single day, they're there, Tabitha.

They may be hidden behind circumstances, people, or light poles. Challenges, closed doors, or lost keys. Camouflaged, dovetailed, or whispering. Purring, kissing, or hissing. But more often than not they're laying about in the open, under a clear blue sky, in plain view. Absolutely. Guaranteed. You'd throttle me otherwise.

10,000 reasons to be happy.

Jumanji, baby -
The Universe

Immediately I was inspired! I came up with my list of reasons to be happy, but there was no way I could do 10,000 in one day. So, I opted to go with

My 15 Reasons To Be Happy :

1. I am alive
2. I am loved by God
3. Sunshine
4. Rain
5. My daughter
6. My husband
7. Because peace was given to me
8. Hot chocolate on a cold day
9. Cold ice tea on a hot scorching night
10. Smiles from little children
11. An abundance of blessings
12. Talents given from above
13. Blooming Flowers
14. Beautiful art
15. My Health

The air date for the Project Uplift podcast show will air on July 20th, instead of Aug 1st as first stated! The response already is overwhelming, so I didn't want to make everyone wait that long. :)


  1. Yr podcast idea is brilliant. You are so tech-savvy!

    I like your 15 reasons for happiness. I can add this to my list: #16: Visiting uplifting blogs like Tabby's!

  2. You know, I bet you actually could come up with 10,000 ~ sure it'd take you a few days, just time wise, but you are that joyful and optimistic. That's why we love you.

    Yay for bringing the podcast out early!

  3. You forgot:

    The color orange!

  4. Tabitha, you are always so inspiring! Love your spirit and your leadership and your can do attitude. You are such a gift!

  5. Tabitha, please come to my blog to accept an award with no strings! You deserve tons of awards! xoxoxoxo

  6. Reason #16: you live in global village: one blood-one tribe.
    Isn't it wonderful? You don't know me, I live thousands of miles away from you, in a different culture, with a different language.
    But I'm there!
    That's my everyday miracle and www is my reason for happiness everyday.

  7. Love the list. Project Uplift sounds very encouraging and positive. Way to make a difference! I know God smiles over you :) Stopping in from SITS to say hi to a fellow sister in Christ!

  8. Very, very cool!

  9. Olde Dame Penniwig beat me to it - I was going to say blogging as number 16! It is always good to reflect on all the good things we have. It reminds me of a song called 'Reasons to be Cheerful' by Ian Dury. If you don't know it - Google it. It really is good fun!

  10. Tabitha, I also get the Tut email daily and that one you quoted also spoke to me!

  11. Oooh I'll have to make sure to put that on my calendar.

    Hey I got something for you over at my place on Saturdays post. Hope you like it.

  12. Blessing to you Tabitha, we do have so much to be thankful for. We just have to make ourselves climb out of the devil's glum into God's light to see them.
    Have a God filled weekend

  13. Great list. We should all have many reasons for being happy. I try to always count my blessings.

  14. Awesome! I've always loved making "happy" lists...also known as gratitude lists, joy lists, love lists.. whatever I'm in the mood for. :) I always feel refreshed and grateful afterward.


You bless me with your presence! Tabitha♥
