18 Moments That Prove You Can’t Put a Price Tag on Happiness

year ago

We often get used to thinking that we can only achieve happiness once we have accomplished big things, like buying the house or car of our dreams. If we sit down and think about it, every day brings small joys that fill our hearts with beautiful things, even if we don’t realize it.

At Bright Side, we have compiled several images of people who didn’t need great luxury to feel lucky.

1. “My gorgeous husband got me this Beauty and the Beast-inspired Harry Potter book rose for Valentine’s Day!”

2. “I’m enjoying the new lamp I bought for my dining room this evening.”

3. “Thrifted an RCA TV into a fish tank”

4. “Went to the Disney Store and bought what I thought was an awesome watch.”

“The cashier asked if it was for my son. I’m 21 and don’t have any children.”

5. “My newest random purchase — this mushroom lamp for my work desk”

6. “Got paid for the first time ever tonight to do the one thing I truly love, stand-up comedy. This is the happiest day of my life!”

7. “I sold my oil painting yesterday, and I’m just over the moon! I’m going to miss her, but so happy she found a home!”

8. “My wife is a constant source of warmth in my life.”

9. “After years of being told I wouldn’t have kids of my own, I’ve officially made it to 30 weeks with a totally healthy baby!”

10. “My husband got me a late Christmas present — the poor ’90s kid inside me is shrieking with glee!”

11. “Age appropriate for a 64-year-old man? No. Is a 64-year-old man going to wear them? Yes.”

12. “I picked out my wedding dress yesterday. Once they put the veil on, it got real. I can’t wait to be with my best friend forever!”

13. “These 3 kids just got their first house (previously lived in an apartment) with a fenced-in backyard and their first pet!”

14. “After a couple of failed pregnancies and feeling hopeless, my wife delivered our beautiful healthy baby girl!”

15. “I need to show off my non-gingerbread gingerbread house entirely made of icing. I am so happy with it.”

16. “My husband and I gave each other these teddy bears when we had to LDR (long distance relationship) for almost 3 years.”

“Just got reunited this April, and now they’re sitting together on our bookshelf.”

17. “Knowing that I get to spend forever with my best friend (and eat pizza together forever)”

18. “My brother just self-published a children’s book, so his daughter could see someone like her as the hero of a story.”

What is it that money can’t buy, but that makes you deeply happy? Who do you share those happy moments with?
