are you happy?
do you think about happiness?
recently i read the book "the geography of bliss" and watched the documentary "this emotional life" and then i read joslyn's post on happiness.
happiness, like love, seems to be all around us.
but still the question remains, are you happy?
what makes you happy?
think about and go write a list or leave a comment with your list or something.
here is my short list: my family aside:
unexpected long distance phone calls
fog rolling through the golden gate bridge
lattes made with extra creamy full fat milk
creating something with my hands
sunbeams across hardwood floors
a perfectly made macaroon
anne of green gables (the book)
moments of quiet in my home
short painted nails
hiking in the hills
finding the perfect verse for the moment
warm grapefruit picked from the tree
mail that is not junk nor bills
assam tea with milk
reading novels uninterrupted.
this is an ever changing short list;
swayed by emotion and circumstance because ultimately my happiness comes from above and the attitude of my heart.
this shortlist is a mere sample.
