What makes you happy?
15 Jun 09
There are a couple of things that can cheer me up when I am sad and one of them is my husband. It often helps me to talk to him or just get a hug. Our pets also make me happy. We have one cat and six rabbits, they are all very important to me and I love playing with them and spending time with them. If I am sad I sometimes decide to spend some time on drawing or painting. When I am painting I often forget everything around me, because I focus so much on the picture, the colours etc and the joy of creating something makes me forget my sadness.

Like you, I talk to my friends. I give them a call, tell them I'm down, then that's it. Most of the time, sharing how you feel and having to immerse yourself in being human is the best therapy. If I could, I'd ask a friend to go out with me, and we could stroll somewhere or go window shopping. That would be really nice.

These things make me happy....Getting paid what I am worth at my job, spending quality time with my husband and kids, my kids continuing to do well in school, my marriage still going strong (14 years), my mother's health improving and hanging out with my best friend.
