I’m not talking about “happiness” here, that ever-elusive state of complete satisfaction with life. I’m talking about the little joys that punctuate our otherwise ordinary lives filled with routine, frustration and problems. What brings you those moments of transient happiness?
For me, it’s
- Drinking good wine in good company
- Walking around English Bay admiring the mountains and the sea together
- Dancing to a great song
- Laughing with a new friend
- Watching TV with my love
To me, it’s all these disparate things that make life worth living. It’s not so much about being completely happy every single moment of my life, but rather about enjoying those special times when they come.
What makes you happy? What are those special moments in your life?
