I get a kick out of a lot of things, and some things give me a high, I don't mean drugs or funny fags, I mean simple things like the smell of new mowed grass, this page asks you what makes you happy

A Question for you

That is this mornings question, what sort of things make you happy? I know it might sound daft but I love to hear the blackbird sing in my garden on a summers day, and I also love to run my feet through fallen leaves in the Autumn, silly romantic fool that I am

What prompted me to ask this question was I heard on the radio this morning Julie Andrews singing My favourite things from the Rodgers and Hammerstein musical The Sound of Music, and I thought OK Cream coloured Ponies and Crisp-apple-streudels are not bad, but they do not really do it for me.

I am happy are you

As I lay in my bed thinking about it, all sorts of things popped into my head, like hearing a baby giggle and finishing a job, that is the sort of thing I mean.

I then got out of my bed and put a warm flannel on my face and I thought this is lovely I wonder what makes my fellow Wikinutters happy? so there you go, the question is now open, what makes YOU happy?

Just a thought,

Post scriptum
Lets keep it clean folks because I can think of all those thing as well lol So what just is it that makes you smile

Nice article! The things that make me happy are nature, writing, and poetry. I am happy taking photos of nature like rivers, trees and they sky. I love flower gardens and yes, the scent of fresh cut grass or magnolia. I love to hear and feel the wind.

Being the hands and feet of Jesus, ministering to the homeless and needy, is what make the happiest.

What makes me happy is poetry writing, listening to Music and watching Movies, Moreover and above all, the prayer, where you speak alone to your father (Jesus) and mother (Mary, Jesus Mother). Regards & Love to the author for his great thought of this day. Congrats to johnnydod,

Reading a good book, walking my dog on a starry night and sitting on my patio admiring my flowers are three things that make me happy. These are a few of my favorite things.

Nice article johnnydodd. I'm happy all the time. It's the little 'extras' that come my way that add the thrills. Things like a glorious sunset, a good movie, hearing of good deeds.

Good evening, Johnny; thanks for the reminder to remember the good in our lives. I'm happy when my grandchildren say, "Nana" and then run to hug me when I visit, a call from a friend just to catch up, and always - having the time to read a good book with a large chai tea. ~Marilyn

Thought provoking and lovely video too, Johnnydod. Top in the list for me is looking at babies and how innocent they come! And putting a smile on others' faces through simple acts like saying hello - taking the time makes my day. Just feeling part of nature. It is easier to tell what makes a billionaire happy! siva

I am happy when my kid is happy. I love when something he's learning gets him excited. I love it when people talk to me about my book(s) -- even if it's to tell me about a mistake. I'm happy for a lot of ridiculous reasons, and some that might even make sense. ;) Thanks for sharing your joy, Johnnydod.

Lovely article and inspirational video. What makes me happy is watching the sun rise, listening to the rain outside my window, being with my family and writing.
