December 8, 2009 5:21am CST
We spend our time in many ways. We read, watch tv, go out with family and friends, go to school, college and work place. We learn music, instrument or dance. In the multifarious activities in which we spend our precious time, we enjoy certain activities more. We will get full satisfaction and happiness. I feel very happy when I go out with my daughters. We share our opinions, our thoughts, eat in different places, do shopping, gift each other. In this way, which is the time spending activity in which you get full happiness and satisfaction? Can you share the happiness with us please?

I'm a simple person and a simple thing is a kind of happiness for me. I don't need to go along with friend, shopping and everything. If go to shopping that is one thing for me...

yes, I agree that go on shopping is an way of spending our time but not for every body I think. Because not all of us can afford to go shopping...

Yes. Books are my greatest collections. I believe that I have bought more books than clothes. And my husband gets jealous of my books. He says that I ignore him whenever I'm reading a book.

That is really nice to share your thoughts about a book with your husband. If you share your ideas in mylot, then many will be benefitted in mylot. They will know the details about the book.

Your response reminds me of a old Telugu movie Devatha song in which NTR and Savitri acted. The words are like this. Starts with Alayana velasina...illale Ee jagathiki jeevana jyothi' then 'Maguvera Magavaadiki madhura bhavana. If a person gets an understanding wife, there is no other heaven for him other than his home. My humble pranams to your better half Baluyadavgaru.

Show this Satyabhama part also to her. Then she will sing Bhamane Satyabhamane and Meerajaalagalada Nayanathi, vrathavidhana mahiman satyapathi.

Hi Buchi, Being with my family--husband and kids is the best time ever that makes me happy. Simple things like watching TV together, doing their homework, story-telling, sharing things that happened the whole day, eating together, doing the grocery together, singing songs together and praying together--no boring moments with my family. we are always in action--funny, happy and lovely moments together!

Then your family is Happy Family. A lovely bond will develop amongst family members if we maintain this togetherness. It is a healthy practice. God Bless your family.

I will not laugh. I can understand because I am also sailing in the same boat. My family members always make fun of me. My husband says, 'like a teenager, what is this computer obsession?'

I was like you before, making some thing or other for the children to eat. Especially on Saturday, being half day, Bajji, Bonda, Pakoda, chat etc. I used to make, do not laugh, I was tieing a towel as apron and a white cloth as butler cap, bring the eatables in plates and put it on the small table at home. Children were asking bill bill, then I will ask tips tips. We had good time those days. Now also children remember those days and laugh. After reading your response, I remembered those days. Thanks for getting my nostalgic memories.

Hi Buchi_bulla I think the satisfaction come because we rarely can do that activity. For example, if you and your daughters too often do it (go out together), then that activity will no longer give happiness to you. For me, it is OL and shopping I can download music and get extra money OL while chatting with my friend. And shopping! Sooo many beautiful things on the shop, from underwear, dress, blouses, shoes, necklace, dolls, etc! Feel so happy see the atmosphere in the mall and pretty things on the shelf! Seems like everything shining! Yay! I even feel happy now just think of it! Seems like soo many things I wanna buy! But I know, after I buy unnecessary items, the "happy and want" feeling will dissapear, leave me with question "What will you do with this things? you don't need it and don't know where or when to wear it". And, I found myself feel bored if I spend too much time for shopping and OL

I enjoy spending time with my family especially my eight year old daughter and writing and reading which are my great loves. Music and good films bring a smile to my face as well as going out to dinner. My animals bring me a lot of joy especially my cats. So having said all that I think I have a lot to very thankful for! Great discussion!

Hai even I am a cat lover. I have two cats at home. They give us immense happiness. I can understand that. I am happy you spend good time with your 8 year old daughter. You have a great hobby of writing and reading. We simply go into another world altogether.

I feel really happy when I travel to different countries. My last trip was to Cape Town and the Garden Route in South Africa. My next trip will be to Halifax and Prince Edward Island in Canada. When I am at home I like to read books, write stories, use the Internet and take my dogs for walks. The sort of places I like to walk are in the countryside and at the coast. I like to meet up with friends and spend time with my family. I enjoy having days out to places of interest in my local area. I like going shopping. Travel is the activity which pleases me the most.

I would love to spend my time reading Novels. I have an obsession for kannada novels since school days and I have a good collection too. Apart from this, I feel happy to watch a movie in theatre with my husband when we both are in good mood without any fights\clashes. Quality time which I spend with my son and parents also give a pleasant satisfaction. Though I spend all the time with my kid when I am at home after the working hours, I will be forcing him to eat,drink, homework and other stuff which he doesn't like and I hardly get time to do things with him which he likes.So I feel happy when I get to spend good momemts with him.

Correctly said. Always we will be behind the child and say study and eat and hardly we spend time together in a relaxed way. What to do? Both eating and studying are important for life. We have to take care of those things. Even if it is bitter, medicine is medicine.

Hai you are like my daughter. She too says the same thing. If there is a like mindedness in between mum and daughter or mum and son, there is nothing which is more enjoyable than spending time together.

Happiness is of course individual preference. Each one feels happy in their interests. I agree with you.

Going out with friends is always fun filling. We can enjoy freely as all are like minded people and enjoy each other's jokes well. We can talk freely without inhibitions.

Hi aunty, Nine hours i spend my time in office during weekdays after i come back from office i immediately switch my pc and sit in front of computer. I am so much addicted to it. i will be infront of the pc for almost 4 hours after my office hours. And in weekends in prepare lunch and try out new snacks and i keep experimenting them on everyone. I feel very happy once all the dishes are completed. This is how i spend my time. Have a great day.

Oh yes, going out with my son is always a pleasure. When he was small, it was a real bother to take him everywhere but now that he’s crossed 10yrs and has an opinion on everything under the sun, spending time with him is becoming such a wonderful experience with me. To top it, he shares many of my interests while shopping, like window browsing, discussing items, making lists and of course food! We enjoy going out together so much that I am thinking of actually taking leave from office for a few days after his final exams are over and then going out together to enjoy the city! Other than that, I enjoy staying at home and reading books…my son calls me a bookworm

It is nice to read your response. What an affectionate bond between you and your son? Nothing else is comparable to spending time with our child. They learn from you, sometimes we too learn from them. It is a pleasant atmosphere around us is it not? My husband shares the same kind of bond with my son. Even now they have their own world. Reading books take us to a separate world. I also come under this category. Have a good day sudiptacallingu.
