Do You Even Know What Makes You Happy?

  • by

Last week I was listening to a podcast and it was talking about how as women we have lost touch with what gives us pleasure.

The guest asked the host what gives her pleasure and she was stumped.

Guess what — so was I …. I literally was like WTF makes me happy!

As I sit here in living the Flip Flop Life — with my toes literally in the sand, I came up with this list.

So… in no order, here are 50 things that bring me pleasure. 😍 I’d love to hear what gives you pleasure — leave me a comment below.
