Couldn't have said it any better...

I love this happiness list of yours, Tess. It might not specify eating certain foods, or smelling certain smells, but it gets to the heart of what makes me happy on any particular day.

I *really* like the idea of knowing (and being) who I am, whilst also accepting who you are. My happiness has always been about me, and it's never dependent on what somebody else does or says or thinks.

That's my ideal, anyway, and your happiness list certainly points the way! :-)
