What makes you happy?

by - Wednesday, April 25, 2012

I was thinking about this in depth the other day and thought I'd share it with you and open it up for discussion. What truly makes you happy? Do you get happy from experiences, things, people or scrumptious delights? What do you find that often makes you happy?

I've realized that a few things that make me happy are spending time with people I love, being outside in the sunlight, seeing others smile, making something good to eat for dinner (friends, I used to not be a good cook), getting a fancy new frock, a clean house, getting the dirty dishes done, surprises, and a tidy space wherever I may be and lastly travelling near or far.

So, friends     What makes you happy in your life?

And to leave you with a final little set of words:

May we never let the things we can’t have, or don’t have, or shouldn’t have, spoil our enjoyment of the things we do have and can have. As we value our happiness let us not forget it, for one of the greatest lessons in life is learning to be happy without the things we cannot or should not have.
