Happiness comes in small packages!!

With so many people sharing things that make them happy, I realized most of them are small things. Things which are available all around us, and we still ignore them in search of big things to make us happy. Happiness actually don't need big reasons. A lot of thing happen in our lives, daily, that makes us happy, we just need to change the way we look at them. Don't ignore these small happy moments, waiting for something big! Enjoy them and you will feel all the stress go away! For me, my little one is a bundle of happiness for me. he brings so many moments which i won't have once he grows up. I just need to stop and appreciate them instead of worrying about the future. What's your small package of happiness?

Actually, simple things makes me happy. Just simply being at home watching TV while lying in bed makes me happy already. My hubby or even my daughter sharing stories and making jokes makes me happy. I can also be happy even alone. SOmetimes, upon dismissal and I am hungry, I would go inside the mall where I always wait for a jeepney to ride home, eat my favorite chicken and spaghetti meal at McDo would already make me so happy. I guess that's because I am a simple person with no complicated things to expect so I can be happy.

so many things that you told, i can relate to them. They make me happy too. Life is about these small moments, not big events that happen once in a while.

@shaynas Then I can say that you also live simply because small and simple things can make you already happy too.

I have the same attitude to life. I enjoy small things having a little me time or walking in the rain. I enjoy the beauty of nature.

@shaynas most of the people are running a race to achieve more than others so they forget to value the small things which really matter to have.

There were some lovely posts on 'what makes you happy' and as you say, it was mostly little things.

Nice to hear that...My point of view is exactly the same towards life....My Happiness lies in reading a good book with coffee....listening Ghulam ali and talat aziz for Nth time....Travelling in a foggy or rainy morning...........Just i don't want anything materialistic to be happy....I am content with these....I am happy with these small packages.............
