Sunday, March 20th was International Day of Happiness and sometimes you don't stop to think about the trivial things in life that make you happy and bring a smile to your face.

They could be so simple yet bring so much joy.

These are the 10 small things in life that bring us happiness:

  • 1

    Cleaning Your Ears

    This is the last thing that made me happy. Nothing compares to the intense feeling of cleaning your ears with a q-tip, especially right when you get out of the shower.

    Finding Money

    Finding money is always exciting but I'm talking about when you find that $10 bill in the laundry, in a pocket or anywhere you didn't expect to find money.

    It almost feels like whatever you spend it on, you got it for free.

    The last time I found money was in the pocket of a jacket I hadn't worn in a long time. I found a $100 bill!

    The Cold Side of the Pillow

    Because it makes bedtime that much cozier.

    Catching Up on a Show

    It gives you something to do for the rest of the evening, or maybe the weekend.

    Sometimes, I'll miss an entire week of General Hospital and catching up on a week's worth of episodes can make for the perfect Friday night.

    Waking Up Thinking You Have Work But it's a Weekend

    It's so relieving when your alarm goes off or you randomly wake up thinking it's a Monday only to realize that it's actually Saturday. Best feeling!

    It's almost worth waking up early just so you can go back to sleep happy knowing you have an extra day or two before going back to work.

    Getting a Great Deal/Discount

    Whether you find a great sale or have a coupon, realizing you just saved money makes your purchase that much more exciting... and less guilty about spending money.

    Having a Jam Session

    No matter what your jamming song is, it's always fun to blast the music and belt out as loud as you can.

    The Feeling of a Clean House

    Everything looks, smells and feels clean. It gives you a sense of relief knowing your house is dirt and clutter-free. It's one less thing you have to worry about.

    Light a few candles and relax.

    Going Pee After You've Been Holding It In

    Crisp, Fresh Sheets

    This is ultimate relaxation. It's so comfy and cozy and you have no trouble falling asleep, specifically when the sheets are straight out of the dryer.
