So lately I have been trying to be a more positive person. A couple months ago I took an "optimism test" that showed how optimistic I tend to be. Apparently, I am a pretty pessimistic person. That was not much of a shock to me, I knew I was not an overly optimistic person in any sense. As I have been thinking about looking more on the bright side of things I realized that I can't be happy about everything. There are certainly events and things in the world that are downright sad and oppressing. However, there are still hundreds and thousands of reasons to be happy. So here are 26 of my reasons to smile.
Apples: I know what you're thinking. 'Seriously, Mary, you are starting off you're A-Z list with apple? What is this, kindergarten?' But just think of all the apple related things there are to smile about! Apple pie, apple cider, caramel apples, dried apples, applesauce, and many many more.
Bees: Yes they sting, but they also create honey. Which is yummy.
Crepes: Never say no to a crepe.
Doughnuts: Cause happiness.
