I love life with all its ups and its downs but there are days when I need to remind myself of the joys of living especially when I am having a bad day. I use my special happy memories to recall when I feel sad and it helps to remind me that regardless what it is I am going through at the moment the rain will stop and the sun will shine again real soon. The first happy memory that comes to mind is the birth of my daughter. What about you,what is your happiest memory?

My happiest memories all revolve around my son too. They start with his birth, then his first months,his first day at school and then, when he was 13, the first time he played drums on stage. I can still feel the emotions I felt that day too. Then of course the day he got married but that is more recent. There are just toomany and most involve him. Guess that's how it should be really

Hi Paula, I had many happiest things in my life and can’t say any special one. My nature is, will feel happiness with little things. Yes of course like you birth my sons (both) were also given much happy moments. But I felt more happiness by watching their growth and activities. Now my younger son is learning to talk and it is really wonderful to spend time with him. In Mylot now I am happy with my blue star with 10 as it turned into the last day only. I would like to add that sad a things also happening, but life is mixed with both so I learned to adjust with both.

It is important to appreciate the little things. You are fortunate to have a happy disposition and I guess that life is full of ups and downs and if we never experienced sadness we would not appreciate feeling happy. Thanks for the response!

The happiest moment was the day birth of my son.He was the sweetest thing I had ever seen.I remember my mom was with me and she took him to her bed in the hospital after he was born at 1 pm.But I got up at night and bought him back next to me as I just wanted to keep seeing him.

One of my happiest memories was traveling around the world when I was 20 years olds. I saw the white sails of the opera house and the gray harbor bridge. I liked seeing the animals like kangaroos and koalas. I found my first experience of snorkeling on the Great Barrier Reef delightful. I saw colorful coral and friendly fish. It is an excellent idea to think when sad or bored of happy events that happened in the past.
