My friends is one of the things that makes me happy. Whenever I'm with them I can't help myself to smile and laugh with them even I have a problem. They always cheer me ups, but,of coarse, my family also makes me happy.I think all I got now or have is enough to be happy.Although, sometimes we need to feel sad to initiate ourselves to do what we have to do to make or happiness. How about you guys??

Traveling makes me happy. Anything new that i haven't experienced before gives me such a thrill that it leaves me smiling for days. Also, my son. His laugh is contagious. He is such an innocent little thing that anything he does just seems so cute and outrageously funny. I think that your right about the sad to be happy thing. However, everyone gets sad and i will also say stressed enough that they do do things to make themselves happy. We take things for granted though and keep wanting more so in the end, you can only be as happy as you let yourself be.

Family and friends always make me happy, too, although sometimes they are the same ones who make me sad or unhappy! I also can be happy sitting home alone doing nothing in particular or reading a good book or watching a good movie or tv program. I am one who often entertains myself so sometimes I just get in the car and go shopping and I am very happy and I don't even have to buy much or I can spend a lot and it is usually for the grandkids and not myself. I can be happy looking out the window at the snow on the ground and watching the cars slowly move down the road or on a sunny day, like today, when I feel more energetic and want to be outside doing something, even if it is just sitting in a chair reading a good book and watching the traffic or the grandkids play in the parking lot. I would be really happy if I would win the mega lottery!!!

My friends and family are the big ones for me too, although I also have hobbies and activities that make me happy. I enjoy horseback riding, writing poetry, reading, swimming, walking around new places, and trying new things. Of course, mixing the two is always best, doing something you like with a person you love! My animals also make me happy, and I consider them a part of my family. I raised a baby rabbit that I recently had to put down, but I still have a wonderfully sweet kitty and a curious snake who loves exploring my apartment when my husband and I let her.

A number of things make me happy, but five of them are essential: 1. Me: I have to find happiness within myself first before anyone else can 'make' me happy. I have to love me first and want to be with me 24/7 before I can even begin to feel any kind of happiness. As I do love myself, and that is the foundation of happiness, I feel extremely happy and my constant smile says it all. 2. My children: I adore my two children. They are adults now and feel the need, sadly, to judge me negatively for whatever reasons connected to my marriage break-up. But they are two talented wonderful, beautiful human beings whom I was blessed with and whose lives are enriching their own spheres just now. I hope to reconnect again with them soon in the awesome love we shared when they were at home. No parent is perfect. We can only ever do our best from hand-me-down rules and values from our own parents and hope for the best. I keep reminding myself that if I was such a 'bad' mother they would not have turned out into the amazing people they are. 3. My work: I love my writing, speaking and creativity. It is the greatest joy to get up each day and come to my computer to write an article, answer a question from a reader, participate in a forum or go out to take a seminar or speak to a group to share my knowledge and expertise. It is a most exquisite feeling of achievement and contentment. And to get paid for something that I love and enjoy so much too, is simply amazing. 4. My partner: I do not have a current beau at the time of writing but having someone to share my life, joys and pain, always makes me extremely happy. It is just wonderful to be able to do things together, affirm each other and love one another to bits. Truly awesome. 5. Life itself - the fact that I open my eyes every morning and I am still breathing, alive and feeling wonderful. That is marvellous and can never be taken for granted, and I give thanks each day. From life flows all other blessings so I can say that I am very happy, indeed, just now, regardless of what might not be going right at any moment in my life.
