Two days ago I called my dad bursting out of my body. I was overjoyed because I had just ordered a brand new TV! Hardly able to speak coherently, my dad got the gist of it, and he then told me, how he loved that I was so happy over I a new TV. That it was a good thing to still be able to enjoy small things. (although buying a new TV is not small to me)
He made me think and he does have a point. Because I am used to not having a lot of money buying something new is such a treat. I could jump from joy. Then I started to wonder, what makes me happy? I came to the conclusion, indeed small things do.
Coffee makes me happy. I wake up and can really look forward to my first cup.Chococlate makes me happy too. Yes I know, it is not good for me but hey, I can really look forward going to bed and eating half a bar of chocolate very slowly.
This morning when I woke up the first thing do is feed my cats and then feed the birds.
While in the garden I listened to a blackbird singing his heart out in the top of a tree. I thanked him for the song. yes confession: I talk to animals and bugs! I talk to the birds, to the cats but even worse, sometimes I talk to snails and woodlouse. I am sure people in the neighbourhood think I am the lunatic lady, but I do not care any more!
Okay back on topic : I love when my great tits. …………. (My God that sounds very weird. They give little gorgeous birds such weird names.lol) fly near my window, alerting me that the food is gone in the little house my dad build for them.
My cats make me happy sometimes, make me laugh when they have their 5 crazy minutes.
So Happiness to me is enjoying the small moments. What is happiness for you?
