What makes YOU happy?

(Please share!)

  • With all the doom and gloom in the world right now, don't you think it's time we celebrated happiness a little! I do, anyway.

  • And the great thing is, there's no secret to happiness, really, other than recognising what makes us smile, laugh or just be plain thankful to be alive.

  • And that's what this page is all about: I want to remind you of our your own recipe for happiness.

 

LOOK! My Happiness List...


My Happiness List...

 

...Whatever's going on in our lives - the good, the bad and the ugly - I'm sure we can all still smile to ourselves and feel good about life, if we try. That's what I think anyway, and I want you to prove me right - share your happiness list here!

So I'm looking for some or all of the following from you:

  • Your happiness list (see my happiness list above
    - a bit cheesy, but so what!)
  • Your secret to happiness
  • Your recipe for happiness, or even
  • Your tips for happiness

  • In essence... your key to happiness

I basically want you to answer me this question: what makes you happy? Thanks in advance.

Oh, a wonderful thing happens when you start to think on the 'happiness' question?... You start to smile! :-)
