1. Finding money in unexpected places

There is no better feeling than finding that five dollar bill in your back pocket, or that twenty in the old wallet you stopped using.

2. Stop lights going your way

When you see a red light up ahead and it turns green just in time that you don't have to stop is saving us that whole minute.

3. Pressing the snooze button on your alarm

Waking up to your alarm and knowing you don't have to get up makes for a better slumber.

4. Rain happens to stop when you need to walk to your car

5. In a long line and one opens up just for you

"I can take whoever is next!" Score.

6. Favorite song comes on the radio

No matter who you are I know you like either blasting the radio, singing your lungs out, or just nodding your head to the beat.

7. Text from "you know who"

Receiving that text from that special someone is always a nice feeling.
