PostSubject: The Happiness List - Five at a Time   Fri Apr 03, 2009 8:54 am

This idea comes from an all-time favorite blog entry from CDRW.

The idea's pretty similar to the Five Facts thread...only this is five things at a time that make you happy*.

My List for the moment:
1. Soft rain-laden spring breeze.
2. The sight of birds bathing in puddles.
3. A rambling walk with a good friend.
4. Strawberry banana smoothies
5. Snuggling into freshly line-dried sheets at the end of the day.

What are the top five on your happiness list today?


*Lets keep this to things that actually DO make you happy. Please leave your sarcasm and cynicism out of the thread.

1. Quiet, solitude, and peace.
2. Music; whether picking my guitar lightly, or just listening.
3. Walking; particularly with one whose hand I can hold.
4. A nice warm shower after sitting in a cold basement.
5. Those days where words come easy, and every bit of writing I do seems like a masterpiece, even if it's not.

Wow, you actually remember that blog post? I'm impressed, it's been a while. Shocked

1. First I have to recycle one of my perennial favorites. Driving with the windows down in the rain. It's worth it alone for the look on the other drivers faces on the freeway.

2. Sleeping on the couch, or on the floor, or on the heat-vent on the floor.

3. The smell of fire.

4. That one time when I was working as a cashier at Wal-Mart and a lady came through my line and told me that her daughter said I looked like a hot Napolean Dynamite.

5. People who reaffirm that I do, in fact exist.

1. Those perfect spring or Autumn days where its not too hot, maybe a touch on the cool side (yet you don't have to have a jumper on) and s soft breeze is going on

2. Insanse laughter with my friends over pointless things (you know, when you actually have tears coming out of your eyes)

3 Meeting my partner and understanding the saying you could cut the air with a knife and 'chemistry was in the air' and that he makes me feel more beautiful than I could ever hope for

4. Listening to Michael Bubles new CD cause it has my chosen wedding song on it =D

5. Oh right. Five things that make me happy. Reading. Reading a darn good book and being relaxed and comfortable.

(These are not in order lmao)

2. coming out of the studio with some fire that i've created...

3. a great movie with awesome visuals that makes me think a bit...

4. reckoning (i have a history of getting this in the future as opposed to right away, it's helped me develop patience)...

5. watching a good fight on tv (boxing, mma, wrestling or judo)...

no particular order... in fact, there are plenty more things that make me happy, those just came off the top...

1. Those evenings where I'm hanging out with close friends and I end up coming out of my shell and being uncharacteristically crazy.

2. A good, solid, melodic tune.

3. Candles. They have a soothing effect, especially when combined with music.

4. Springtime and warmth; especially after the six months of winter we get up here.

5. That rare state when I have nothing to worry about; no deadlines to meet, no work that I could be doing.

It's a tough morning for happiness so this is probably a good time to come up with five things I'm happy about!

1. I'm not in pain.

2. Chocolate and mint together.

3. A chore that is finished.

4. When I'm in the middle of an RPG and everyone is online, playing, and enthusiastic about it.

5. Messages of love even if my loved one can't be with me.

I suppose I better do this too, even if I’m not the queen of happiness.

1. Times when you have the entire house to yourself, it’s freezing outside and you can sit by the heater without being bugged with some soup and just relax

2. Conventions a chance for me to be who I truly am I can wear as much black as I want put on my makeup as pale or thick as I please and not feel like I’m out of place.

3. Music that smothers you in emotion and wonder.

4. Being so relaxed around a person you don’t have to worry to watch your mouth or act a certain way to please them

5. Being an individual
