Leslie’s ‘My Happy List’ seriesΒ inspired me to create a hashtag about…being happy-introducing #TheHappyGrams.

What makes you happy? Show us by using #TheHappyGrams on Instagram.

Finding or taking a photo that works with my Instagram aesthetic is a huge happy list item for me. Hence this hashtag (I also have another hashtag! Read about it here).

Tag your photos with it for posts about what makes you happy, bright colors, anything fun, food, clothes, pets, whatever!

Of course I use #thehappynow created by the @happyhunters, but it’s time I struck out on my own. Okay with inspiration from Leslie and her series.

Over onΒ Peaches and Willow a.k.a Leslie’s blog I shared 6 things that make me happy. FYI-she has a great ‘My Happy List’ series that YOU can and should participate in.

I’ll check this hashtag daily, post favorite(s) on my Insta-stories weekly and once a month I might feature YOUR post on my page!

So what puts a smile on your face? Use #theHappyGrams to show the world.

    I think this question is a positive one to remind everyone to be happy. Actually, being happy is one of my ongoing goals throughout my life because it is that important. I personally think I get happiness from the smallest things. For example, if someone says something nice, or if I sleep well, or if I got a good result and more. Even when the food tastes good I get happy hahaha. So simple, right? http://www.clairebearblogs.com

    • Yes! The simplest things are the most happy.

  • Miss ALK
