Happiness is…

“I feel myself falling, I’m feeling happy now” ~ Take That

Or, as defined by my dictionary:

Happy (adj): feeling or expressing joy, causing joy or gladness, fortunate or lucky

 

This is not an exhaustive list of what makes me happy, I hope such a list is infinite, but just a few musings, some more serious than others.

Happiness is:

That friend who you haven’t seen for months but who just gets you….

Despite having a shit time & losing 2 stone, the fact that little black dress you thought you’d never wear again now fits & looks skinny witch amazing…

Your bezzie mate who buys the wine…

Making new & unexpected friends…

Meeting someone who loves the Radio 4 18:30 comedies….

Being invited out for dinner…

A hug…

Walking in the Autumn when it’s cold enough to need a coat but the sun is shining & you can kick the fallen leaves…

Counting your blessings…

Good sex…

Curling up with a mug of tea and a good book…

The memories invoked by a particularly epic #kitchendisco…

The pink-streaked sight of a beautiful sunrise…

Stepping off the plane for a summer holiday and a wave of Mediterranean heat hitting you….

Having your work appreciated by someone who’s opinion you value…

Watching a kitten frolic…

Those shoes, in your size, in the sale, and looking amazing…

Fresh flowers…

Smiling…

Being able to tweet *tail-lashing fury* to help banish a bad mood…

Someone saying ‘thank you’ when you hold the door open for them…

Appreciating the sunshine and also laughing in the rain…
