Do you ever get excited about the most simple things?

I am pretty tired right now but not ready to try and sleep. Just sitting here staring at the screen thinking about the goal I want to reach tonight on MyLot. But I am both tired and a bit bored. Not because I am bored of MyLot but because I need some background noise. I don't really like sitting in silence or not having some sort of noise to entertain me. Then all of a sudden I started to feel happy. I thought to myself that I will have a nice hot shower, change into some warm clothes, heat up some left over Chinese food, pop a movie on and continue trying to reach my goal on here. Like my stomach literally had butterflies thinking about it. Just sometimes I get happy / excited over the most simple things. Are you the same? Do you feel like sharing what simple things make you happy?

For sure, we all have that child in us. Just that due to some reasons (professional or even personal) we dont care about that child. Glad that you do. I can find happiness even in jumping over a poodle of water made during the rainwater. Oh, I love bathing in the rain. Happiness can be found anywhere is my belief. Agreed, it is a tall statement to make, but then, you should have an eye and know what makes you happy.

@thesids I know what you mean. Some people have lost or forgotten that inner child so they can find it hard to just have fun with simple things. Rain is one of my most favourite things in life. No matter how I am feeling, rain always help me out.

@Daljinder It's really hard to be asked on the spot lol so hopefully I don't forget anything. *Black and white TV shows / movies. *Jazz & Classical music *My PS3 game ( Saints Row 2 ) *Watching Daz Black on YouTube ( a YouTuber I recently discovered ) *When Byron is being a non-weed smoker dude! And cuddles me etc *Watching Ellen Degeneres *When REAL friends are happy and well. *When family is happy and well. *When I make a sale over Facebook because I get extra money and get rid of things. *When I help out somebody. I am sure the list could go on a bit. lol

Sure, I get excited over little things too. The simplest things are the happiest things. At least, for me.

if someone don't like chocolate, then I guess he/she never tried it.

The thought of an ice-cream at the next town sometimes makes me really happy!

I am mostly excited for one thing or the other. You do call me "bubbly" Sometimes just a random thought is enough for me. I was happy in the evening and you know the reason already. I am watching movie too on my PC. Here's the short (2 minutes) clip of that.

I take that back. I am feeling very unmotivated right now. I can't be bothered to comment or respond anywhere. I wanted to post a discussion but yet again can't be bothered right now. I guess we had mood swap between us!

Nowadays it is only the simple things so one of them better make me happy. The answer is yes. But you wrote got me confused. You are going to eat food someone called Chinese and watch a movie while typing and reading what is on myLot. Wow multitasking.

@VivaLaDani13 Oh I know someone that does that. I can't do that or maybe don't do it. I get all involved in my movies and don't play them unless I'm there but music is completely different.

@Amel94 Those are some cool things to get happy about. Also have to say that a good workout is something I would be happy about too because it means I did something good for myself.

Simple things can be just as exciting as trips and those bigger things. I can get excited by them as well.

I get excited about the simple things also. I think most of us do. They make us feel good about ourselves. And it is the small simple things that make us the happiest.

@inertia4 Exactly right. I think it is better to find fun and happiness in the most simple things. I have known some people who take things for granted and wont try to enjoy themselves with simple things. Like they need to spend heaps of money to be entertained. Which is ok to do but finding fun in simple things is easier lol

Going out with friends is something that excites me. It is strange that at one point of time you go out so much with your friends that it becomes a routine. Some years later and you are busy in your life and the thought of catching up with your friend excites you. Well so for me meeting a friend is something that brings happiness to me.

Even after all of our years together, whether just sitting or taking a walk, holding Becky's dainty little hand makes me happier than a kitten following a leaky cow.
