"If for all your life you think happiness is all about sunshine, then maybe, no one has ever told about dancing in the rain." I love this quote. For me it means, that happiness does not have to be a deeper meaning or intense experience but small things can bring happiness too. Like walking in the rain, having coffee with friends, playing with your kids or reading your favorite book. I have come to appreciate the small things that happens to me. I may not have all the money in the world to experience the best things in life but I'm still thankful. After all the best things in life are free. Like your family, your kids, your friends, laughter, work, rain, sunshine etc. These things make me happy.

Well your right the best things in life are for free or money can't buy really.. But what does make me happy well MONEY, teasing my little sister, my mom coming to visit also my aunt and uncle, my girlfriend, my friends... movies make me happy. A sunny windy day makes me sad and happy. I remember when I was like 4 where I wrestled my teddy bear and mom buying a new electric fan, she was just watching. Things like these make me happy.. =)

this short piece is one reason to be happy. to read notes and messages that inspire is one reason to be happy. it makes me happy when everything is going smoothly with the family and even with failures, the support i feel makes me happy the more. it makes me happy accomplishing things and resolving predicaments. it is not at all about big things.

Food makes me happy.., chocolates.., ice cream.., cakes... I can be happy with simple things in life.., I get happy when I get to see my family.., and realized how much I missed them.., i get happy watching the sunset with my boyfriend beside me.., happiness cannot be bought.., you can get it out of simple things..=)

Happiness or sadness both are feelings due to thoughts in our brains. If we think positively, many things do have its good... if we can only look into the good of things and appreciate it, we will find ourselves to be happy most every time. Cheers!

What will truly make me happy is when my family had finally get over the financial crisis that had struck us 10 years ago. Once financial windfall befalls us, I would like my parent to see the world and enjoy their senior years in happiness. Money may be immaterial to some but if you have been in my shoes, you would suggest otherwise.

Time building model kits usually allows me to relax, which is probably the closest I will come to being happy for a long while. Whilst doing that I am normally absorbed, and not worrying about money.

for me, its the little things that make me happy - sleeping in, breakfast made for you ECT i enjoy getting up and sending a text to someone that makes them laugh becasue i think a laugh a day makes the world spin around.
