100 Little Things That Make My Heart Happy

I simply remember my favorite things and then I don't feel so bad.

100 Little Things That Make My Heart Happy

As I created this extensive list, I discovered two things. Number 1: It was almost too easy thinking of 100 things that make me happy, which honestly surprised me a little bit.

In the world that we live in, it can be difficult to remember the raindrops on roses and whiskers on kittens.

My Ethnicity

Hispanic is not a race... it’s an ethnicity. The term Hispanic describes a group of people whose common thread is language and/or culture. I’m a Hispanic woman born in Argentina to Korean parents. I self-identify as Hispanic/Latina and my personal experiences can’t be summarized by the color of my skin or the languages on my tongue. That is because every single person in the universe has a unique experience. Whether someone labels me as Korean or Argentine or American, that will never change my experiences as a Spanish speaker, immigrant, child of divorced parents, Californian, college graduate (Go Bears!), omnivore, writer, or any other label I choose for myself.
