Lots of spicy food, great big greedy platefuls of it makes me happy, drinking tea and smoking makes me happy.
If everyone around me is well and happy and problem free,..then I'm happy,.. a latest crush giving me signs that he's intertested ..that makes me happy,..
music can do it, so can hugs and cuddles,..good news on the news makes me happy,..knowing someone loves me, definately makes me happy,..and lovely little pictures of bubbles with little smiley faces on them make me happy too.
Just a few of my favorite things...
*My cat, when she is being unapologetically cat-like, for that's all cats can do and all that is expected of them.
*Great music, that reverberates from the joy it was made with.
*Seeing something in the universe, whether it's music, art, a TV show, an article or blog, a post on a forum, or something similar that makes me think that someone else in the universe "gets it."
*Being shown true concern from another human being.
*When those I care about are happy and succeed.
*When I wake up from an interesting dream, for the few seconds while the dream is still lasting like an aftertaste of chocolate on my tongue but I have not yet begun to rationally analyze its contents.
*When I can make my parents laugh.
*When deer play in the snow, chasing each other, proving that there is joy in the universe outside of humanity...
Lying down on a carpet of grass, thinking how small I am in comparacy to the world, how beuatiful the clouds can be and how irritatingly wonderful it is to get sun in my eye.
Walking up the streets, seeing children and adults run around playing catch or just indulge in daydream activity, smiling for themselves and whomever accidently catch a glance from them.
Listening to the waves of the ocean, hitting a different beach over and over, hearing the seagulls singing to the whispering of the wind; my mind creating it's own fanfare to celebrate the wonders of the world.
Understanding a solution to a puzzle I did not see before and am able to apply it in perfect synchronisation; mastering patterns in math that was invisible just a second ago.
Learning new things about friends and get happily surprised by how stubbornly stupid I can be at times.
When there's a storm and winds try to lift me off the ground, only to push me backwards a few squares and my wish to fly accompanies me to the point where I jump and try to stay in the air.
Reaching an insight to a question I have asked myself and incidentally spring to a large smile whilst noticing that everyone around me smiles.
Seeing the sun after a long while in the dark.
Intricate patterns made by friends unravel truths about their well being.
Touching and licking my own skin for the satisfaction of existence.
When I see someone stand up for themselves and manage to do what they sent themselves out to do.
And all the little things: seeing pebbles land in a welcomed order; viewing the underlying structure of objects; a beautiful mathematical solution; show of passion*; show of enthusiazm; art; teaching; being taught; chaos in it's most pure form; unrivaled order; natures change.
And so much much more!
*I'll get hated for this but; Even a passion that may or may not be viewed as less of an interest/value in man.
