THE THINGS THAT MAKE YOU TICK

FEBRUARY 4, 2015 LEAVE A COMMENT

Have you ever sat and thought about what makes you tick? The things that make you love living the life you live. It could be a variety of different things. They could be tangible, or they might be something that you cannot see with your eyes, but they make you feel good. Most people don’t really take the time out of their day to just sit down and think about what makes them happy. I think that you should. Because when you do sit down and think about those things that make your life worth living, it boosts your mood.

One of the things that I think is essential to my life is love. It could be love from my family or friends. Love is one of those things that is great to have because whenever you are feeling lonely or down, those that love you will always be there. Mostly, the things that tend to make me tick are the little things, though. Like hearing a song that I like. Music is an important part of my life. Whether I’m dancing to it or just sitting on the couch with my headphones in, it tends to make me happy. Dance is also a very big part of my life. It would be weird if I was not dancing. Honestly, I am not really sure what I would be without dance.

After I sit down and think about all these things, it makes me so happy. I feel very blessed to live the life that I do. As people, we tend to get caught up in this crazy world. Sometimes it’s good to step back and look at all of the little things. We might lose sight of them in life sometimes, but they are there. You just have to look for them.
