I am sitting outside in the sun ignoring a couple of things I should be doing but they can be done later when the sun is gone. It makes me happy.

What makes the rest of you happy?

good question Bitsy...what makes me happy is just caring about myself and my wants and needs and doing things that *I* like and not what others expect me to like and do...i just want to be *me, the real me*!!

Pretty much the same thing as you Bitsy.

The self care is ongoing, i need to get my social connection, but sometimes I just need to "zone out".

I get outside on a nice day, and do a walkabout. I watch the wildlife, go to the creek in the woods...play with my dog. I listen to the owls Hoot at night.

Being able to take care of me so that I can GIVE to others. I find that if I let myself go, I don't have much to give.

what it takes for me to be happy... i would have to say being comfortable within my own skin (i'm still working on that). but for now, being around supporting people is making me happy.

Thanks. So many times I come here and unload the garbage of my life. I feel like all I do is whine and complain. I wanted something positive and maybe we can all share something that someone else can try.

I am reading a book called The Eight about Charlemagne's Chess Set. When I first started it I thought it would be dry and boring but it is really good. I am back to sit in the sun and read.

The rest of you: Go make yourselves HAPPY

A few years ago, I read that happiness is a choice and isn't dependent on any external factors. Since then I have tried to make a choice each morning to be happy. Have said that, I do love a huge, warm cup of hot chocolate by a fireside...mmmmmmmmH

i agree that most people are about as happy as they make up their minds to be. That is why I started this thread. I am determined to be happy.

I want others to think about their happiness as well.

When I'm completely and totally organized and the wash is done, I'm happy.

When I'm sitting in my hammock snuggling with a critter, I'm happy.

When I'm settled onto the couch at night with my bf, I'm happy.

When I'm throwing my leg over the back of my horse, I'm happy.

Even when I'm shoveling manure, I'm happy.

I am happy when involved with a cause, or helping someone; just because. I forget about my stuff and put things in perspective.

What makes me happy?

A sense of safety and stabilty, period.

That's all.

Safety. Stability.

To maybe feel that I won't have to endure yet another feeling of the rug being just ripped out from under my feet from out of the ficking blue as as happened too many countless times in my life......

At this point, sorry to say, I am getting weary.

About ready to just cash my chips in and be done with all this mess.

Enough.

Done.

Kaput.

Period.

Checking out.........

Met with the max.

Music makes me happy. When I hear good music and feel like I want to get up and dance. That makes me happy. A warm sunny day makes me happy. My dogs playing and enjoying the day makes me happy. My kids being happy and joking around makes me happy. Going out with friends and having a good time makes me happy.

And last but not least, having really good intimate s-x with someone I appreciate and respect makes me happy.
