Happiness can come from the simplest of things


PhotobucketWaking up at your own time.
Not being afraid to ask questions.
Making wonderful acquaintances.
In vino veritas (There is truth in the wine.)
A cheeseburger.
Putting your hair up in a butterfly clip after a long day.
Walking around home barefoot.
Rosy cheeks from laughing out loud.
Sour cream on roasted potatoes.
The pitter-patter of rain.

What’s your happiness?

    True, true, true!!

    Happiness is fitting into an old pair of jeans that didn’t fit for a year or two :)

    smell of coffee in the morning,
    bed and pillows after a hard day,
    warm hug,
    singing in the shower,
    dancing in the living room,
    my adorable niece tugging my hand to reach for a toy or go somewhere,
    clean room (which is actually more of a triumph)
    and more… :)

    Aaah, triumph = happiness too!

    ice cream
    maia’s toothless grin/smile
    the feel of maia’s soft skin after her bath
    a backrub after a long day at work
    a steaming cup of hot chocolate on a rainy afternoon
    and a whole lot more… :-)

    Awwww how relaxing all those are!

    – reading a good book on a beach, or even just at home, with my favorite songs playing at the background
    – massage at your favorite spa
    – dark chocolate, or Wendy’s frostee, yum :)
    – mixed nuts
    – playing with my kids, hearing their silly stories
    – seeing my parents live a longer and quality life…
    – long drive with family
    – finding money hidden on closet, secret pockets, under the bed (?)
    and a whole lot more too :)

    Wendy’s Frostee with french fries! Mmmmmmmm.

    Ditto on all esp. the good internet days! I’m having a bad internet day today (because of the strong rain yesterday!) so the happiness level of mine for today dipped a bit. πŸ˜€

    being warm and cozy inside the house, when it’s stormy outside
    watching a feel-good movie with my feet propped up
    looking at old photographs
    conversations over coffee with husband
    waking up in the morning and seeing his face first thing
    cold glass of water on a very hot day
    a capsule of Lormide on my purse when my stomach is upset
    my mom’s TLC when i’m sick
    clean public loo
    …and more…. πŸ˜‰

    this is a wonderful reminder that happiness is free for the taking…thanks!

    They all sounds lovely. I especially like looking at old photographs! Trips down memory lane are always welcome… as long as they trigger happy thoughts. πŸ˜€ And that was a beautiful insight you shared. Thank you!

    hugs and “stuck kisses” from my kids
    curling up on the sofa with my husband after a long day
    chocolate cake with caramel syrup
    lying down on the beach on a hot summer day
    no traffic
    trying new places to eat

    Stuck kisses? Awww that’s so sweet! I can imagine that game!
