What makes you haPPy???

As I was browsing through YouTube videos (which has currently become my favorite pastime lately), I was struck by a question in one of the videos.

“What makes you happy??”

And that of course started a long string of thoughts in my busy brain.

‘Well, a lot of things make me happy’ was my initial response but, what kind of things???

A full stomach. A tasty meal (yeah, I love food)

A new technology advancement ; Oh wait, that is not happiness; that would be a sense of wonderment.

New clothes? no, that just gives me some cool feel for a day and booo!! It’s gone.

So what makes me happy?

Each time I ask that question, the image of my familyΒ  flashes in.

What makes me happy? There!! It flashed in again. My dad, mom, sis and bro.

And that is how I hit upon my secret of happiness:

I am happy when I make ‘the people I love’ happy.

I am happy when the ones I care about, are happy.

So….that’s what makes me happy. πŸ™‚

What ’bout you?

  1. I echo so much of what you shared. I’m content when my family is content, but I also know I can’t make my family happy. Each one needs to secure happiness for themselves. I find happiness for myself when I know I’ve heard God speak or seen his movement in this world around me or my loved ones. Thanks for sharing.

  2. Making connections makes me happy. That profound moment when you are in a real deep conversation with your head slightly tilted and you realize that you’re both or you all are on the same page….Connecting is my happy placeπŸ’“πŸ’“πŸ’“πŸ’“
