To Me, Happiness Is…

My short list of things that make me happy. Doesn't take too much!
  1. BEING HEARD!!
    This will always be on top for me. There is nothing better to me than having someone take the time to hear what I have to say, read what I have to write etc, and actually pay attention enough to really hear what I'm saying. That will always put a huge smile on my face!
  2. Accepting things for what they are
    Life isn't easy. We are all just human, and we, at some point in our lives, are going to hurt others and be hurt. We are going to get sick, people we care for will die. The more I focus on accepting things for what they are, good or bad, the more happiness I have in my life.
  3. Little Surprises
    The little things you weren't expecting always bring me happiness. Stumbling upon a favorite childhood show, eating something new that turns out to be amazing, finding ten dollars in a coat pocket you put away last year. The little things.
