What amkes you happy? seems like in this world we are living in that so many are sad and depressed all the time! People are angry alot too! I was wondering what makes you happy? is it a smile from someone else or maybe a hug? Maybe it is just when someone holds a door open for you. Maybe it is just waking up to see the sun or just waking up. Please share with me what makes you happpy

what makes me happy? many things can make me happy. 1. If i did "something" that makes my parents happy.just a very small thing like buy a pumpkin soup for my mom or just help her with her work.Also sometimes i ask them to eat outside with my money. The point is when they're happy, then so do i 2. when i play with my 2 lovely dogs. Just to see their innocent face, it makes me happy. All their attitude, the way they're asking to be fed,when i bath them,etc,etc,etc...many things that has something to do with my dogs, makes me happy 3.if i meet & go with my boyfriend...coz it means that he will buy me anything that i want. wow...what a wonderful world 4. Sushi & Sashimi makes me happy, because it's healthy. 5.last but not least..when it comes to payday.Nothing even better when i got my own money..

Actually simple things that most people take for granted make me happy---I love nature, and I'm the type that will stop to smell the roses...people often forget to take the beauty of the world around them an really "see" it--to see that sunset, to see the stars and moon in the sky, to see that butterfly flitting about--maybe if more people took the beauty of the world around them and appreciated it more, one would have more gratitude just being alive

I have three things that make me happy. My dogs, my friends and nature so I am lucky as I experience all of these every day.

What makes me happy? What a nice question! Well I guess being with my man, and knowing that he loves me as much as I love him! Also being with my 5 beautifu cats - watching them play and interract with each other - they all have their own individual personalities and are a joy to be near. Then I guess spending money on something nice just to treat myself (a new dress or a pair of shoes or something!), watching one of my favourite tennis players winning a match, listening to some great music...........so many things make me happy! Life's too short to be sad is my motto!

music. that always cheers me up. also,my cats..unconditional love.it's hard to be sad with a loudly purring cat sitting on your lap with his head upsidedown being silly (or in my case,3 of them at once);)

Knowing I always have a choice to feel sad or happy. It does not matter what the outside world is like. I can make my inside world as happy as I want. In fact, anybody can. Most of my former sadness and anger have been shoved out the door of my mind and replaced with happier feelings. You need not let your feelings and life be controled by the outside world. That is the big secret to living a happy life. You can create it for yourself.

so many things in the life of us will make happy.but the lovable thing by that i will feel happy is the incident when my mother and my father are in very very happy condition by me.the season for their happiness must be me.in that situation i will feel very happy and i will be proud to make them happy.because they are my gods.by them only i had seen this world,i am seeing this world and i will see the world.so my life satisfaction must be the thing to make them happy.i will try my level best to make them happy.by any happy situation i may not get that much happy.

I prefer the word contentment to happiness. Happiness is about laughing and feeling good. Contentment is when I realise acceptance of the way things are and stop struggling to alter them when I don't like them. When I manage to get into the state of acceptance, I realise that I am learning what life is about and through this, I feel contented. :-)

what makes me happy is the people around me. The people who care, loves me and most of all values me as a person. Its so nice to have someone who stands beside you no matter what. No matter if you had a bad day, a bad hair day or if you're moody enough. Eating also makes me happy especially chocolates. Reading a book makes me happy especially if harry potter books are the one im reading.
