Day 139 Question 139

Day 139 Question 139:

What makes you happy?

Having to work on a Sunday does not make me happy but it is one of those necessary evils of life.  I am happy about who I get to work with so it all evens itself out in the end.  I am about to head to the pool to catch some rays before having to go into work.  I decided on answering this question because I sometimes think we need those reminders of those things floating around in life that make us happy.  What would you add to your list?

1)      Laughing with a good friend(s) until my face hurts.

2)      Having a person in my life (friend, family member, wife, husband, etc.) that I can talk to about anything and you feel absolutely, 100% comfortable with.

3)      Having air in my lungs and opportunities to see and experience new things every single day.

4)      Having 2 loving parents that have shown me what love really is.

5)      Watching children grow up and learn to walk and talk….I may not have any of my own but I still find the whole process so beautiful.

6)      Looking at life in a positive light…there is bad in the world and some days might suck all of the life out of me but it doesn’t have control over me.

7)      Being who I am makes me happy.  I am compassionate, empathetic, kind and caring.  I want to help change the world for the better and every day I seek new knowledge because there is an abundance that can be learned and I want to take in as much as I possibly can.

I could list a million things that make me happy because I see so much opportunity in the world.  I have stopped taking so much for granted and I have soaked in the beauty that surrounds me.

    We have the same list! Strangely enough, nothing on the list is rooted in money or things. That said, I’d add one more thing: books to read. Have a great day!

  2. Opening my eyes in the morning to a new day filled with endless possibilities.

    water makes me happy … the sea, lakes, baths, soft rain and sometimes even tears

  4. Happiness, just saying the word for me brings a smile thanks for sharing.

    Blogging and reading great posts like this one makes me happy!

    Also, I’ve nominated you for the versatile blogger award!

  7. Loved the list … and so agree with alundeberg that nothing on your list is about wealth or physical belongings – that speaks volumes about the truly genuine person you are!
    Something that makes me feel really happy is hanging out the washing on a sunny day …. and smelling it when I bring it indoors …. it always makes me feel on top of the world … strange!
    The only slight problem I have is 2) Having a person in my life (friend, family member, wife, husband, etc.) that I can talk to about anything and you feel absolutely, 100% comfortable with.
    Hmm … I’d like to know them and then maybe I could! lol lol

    Lovely list. I love walking in the rain.

    Waking up every morning. Not that I relish opening my eyes and getting out of the soft coziness of my bed, but because I am so thankful for my life; my family; looking out the window at natural beauty; having enough food, clothing, water, light and clean air. Also I am happy and thankful for not living in poverty, fear, a war zone, loss of children and lives and limbs. 🙂

  13. I laughed so much today I snarfed my diet coke. Does that count?

  14. I believe a Faith/church to be part of… A fantastic list!

  15. Finally truly loving myself and being lucky enough to have found someone who loves the me that I love…That makes me truly happy. 🙂

  16. other than my children and partner..being alone makes me happy, its the only time I can truely relax and be myself and trust me I don’t get many moments alone!
