What makes you happy? Lifestyle

  • View author's info Author posted on May 27, 2005 23:26

    I often feel that the most important things that make one happy are free and could never be bought at any price..

    Health, love, family and friends.

    What makes you happy and will keep you going even in the lowest of times?

    HI all,
    It is good to know that after a long break from this site, my question still reverberates with some here..

    Happiness is relative..but with good health , family and loved ones..building memories that we could remember for a lifetime is all that matters..
    I should know, I lost my husband 10 years ago and then my son last OCtober..all I look back are the happy memories we have had.

    I'm the happiest when I'm away from the city. I'm happiest when I explore nature, fish on lake deep within a mountain range with no one around. Often I drive and drive for days in States like Colorado, Texas and Montana, Utah and Arizona, and Wyoming, exploring every inch. I have spend months on end exploring Canada exploring from East to West. That's were my heart is.

    I should be happy my health, it is top notch, never been sick in my entire life including I never had the normal childhood sicknesses, but I don't consider that happy, but grateful.

    I love cruises and sit watching the waves and looking for wales and dolphins for hours. Taking photos of Wildflower and bugs. Anything to do with nature brings out my personality and awe.
    I take family for granted, sad I know, but they just argue among themselves or scream at the kids, I'm too easy going to want to involve myself. Even with my X, it was only the 1st 3 years we had arguments, after those first 3 years and can't think of one argument we had.
    To explore nature and make something (to produce) remodel a room, make a fine cabinet, a chair, or a just a Birdhouse, build a computer from scratch, repair my washing machine makes me the happiest. I'm over hitting nightclubs 4 days a week, although I still love to dance. And hate TV, I listen to all types of music daily, from Pop to Buddha, from Orchestra to Rap. I love it, I relax.
    You ask a very difficult question. Easier would be "what makes unhappy. Nothing but that awful tube, the TV.

    To professor1319 "you are such an ugly woman": What a horrible thing to say and no one knows who you are talking about! You must not be much either, if all you can ONLY show is a picture of a good looking car!

    well...there is no relation can be secure. and it is not a negative, rather its your waking up point to appreciate and accept what you have today...

    Quoting imjase:

    What makes me happy.

    Yes friends. I love having friends from all different aspects of culture and life it makes it much more fun when you socialise.

    Doing random things when I'm bored.

    Not taking things too seriously when you don't need to.

    Understand that not all humans are giving,caring,friendly,selfless and happy to accept the fact that everyone is different.

    I agree. Especially on the part about understanding that not all humans are giving, caring, friendly, selfless, or happy to accept the fact that everyone is different.

    There is a saying, I have become to live by: When you are in need...a true friend is walking in...while everyone else is walking out. I will say this was tough for me to learn....however, I finally got it. Now, my life gets better every day! I feel much better being the friend walking in and helping someone, than having to deal with everyone walking out.

    I would add to this: being secure in relationship, that's also be happiness.

    it depens on people, maginificant choice to be happy!

    the little raindrop from sky and it makes the street quiet and block the noisey world into another moistured and peaceful ,slowly moved world, i do enjoy the slow down and quiet time lack of speed in any cornor, the little cute rain makes the whole world like a dreamy little cattsle......

    if in the hot summer day, walking alone the beach of stanley park and eat Italian gelato ice cream, the fruit smell makes me pretty happy and the blue ocean and the enjoyable people around me , all telling me: enjoy the sun, enjoy the moment, it is such beauty !

    When morning in the spring , carring my camera to chasing the beauty of vancouver uncountble flowers , the blomming flower dancing and smile in front of me, they communicate with me and pleasure my eyes, and satisfy my artistic soul, la vie, ce belle!

    Each day, watch economic news, try to figure out the crazy world with its most vibration in extrem danerous game, and it is pretty cool to learn and thinking, not by the whatever newspaper tell you, do your own home work and see how it would be the next step.... the prediction, the vibration, the eage of the whole world, though politic dancing around it, isn't is fun and exciting?!!!

    Go to one of my favorite web, to listen music in any changeing form and style, try all the new music , the recent fall in love with is Jesse cook's guitar, from the matisse the cat to cafe mocha....the flammenco song exactly match my passionate soul, we find a hamony indeed....

    Sometimes i would like to go to art gallery alone, or visit antique shop, the distance from realist life to little bit far away, satisfied my curious mind and it makes me smiled and content and my brain could spiritully alive , feeling more alived than normal days.

    When in life time you really meet the most witty person or sharp person that you feel mentally challenged, it is like old kids game, you hide and try to escape and some one still could catch you somehow.... but you try and here is the chance....what a game!

    I agree with Bonnie and 01MoreChance and most of the others. Its the free and simple things in life that are really important. We just have to appreciate the wonder of them.
