Random stuff that makes me happy!
I may have aged, but deep inside, I feel like a kid because little things can make me easily happy.
Hola, my dear friends. I hope you are happy today. "Happiness is just around the corner", and "Happiness is what you make it", as the sayings go. True or true?
I wanted to make an article about happiness. Tonight, my Saoirse and I played with a cup. I sanctioned it using my face, she tried to pull it out and she was giggling all the time. Pure happiness. This bundle of happiness never fails to make my day. And I also got a hug from my eldest, Bam. I found peace.
Happiness and peace, that's what we want to live with every day. Do you agree?
I stated that little stuff makes me happy and appreciate life. Yup, let me share what they are:
When I was too tired a week after work, I usually spend idle time in Ayala Triangle. I love the silence of being just myself. It's my breather. I just sit down and observe. I let my thoughts and emotions pass by. Sometimes, I'd go to Mall of Asia, to the ocean side, and just sit and listen to the sound of the waves. I won't deny it, I sometimes observe lovers saying lies to each other, joke-their sweet nothings and stuff. Yeah, I eavesdrop. Kidding. I enjoy solitude.
There is nothing more pleasant to my eyes than witnessing the promise of a new tomorrow. I appreciate that God has given me two beautiful eyes that make me see His wonders. I would just look at the sky and remember the breathtaking sights and let them stay in my heart, forever. It's just pure happiness and bliss whenever I do it.
It's a part of my everyday life. It just melts my stress away. Coffee is like my ally. It understands how I am feeling and it assures me good company. One sip is to wake me up, the rest of the sips are for dreaming and thinking how my day should go and what should I do.
Before, I used to hunt for blueberry cheesecakes. I needed to discover which resto or cafe offers the best cheesecake in town. Some were good, some were a letdown. But no matter where I buy it, as long as it's a cheesecake, it makes me happy.
Of course, who wouldn't be happy when someone checks on you and does not borrow money or ask you to join networking? I really am glad when a friend texts, calls or messages me. Everyone is struggling right now and for that friend to spend a minute or two with me makes me thankful and feel special. Sorry about the networking, it's just that I've experienced it so many times already. They will only remember you if they wanna recruit you.
A simple hug or a pat on the back can make my day. We all need to feel valued sometimes. It makes me happy to receive that simple gesture.
I love dark chocolate because it is healthier but if you wanna give me chocolate? I would gladly accept whatever that is. I remember my ex-bf who bought me boxes of chocolate from Hawaii, man, they were so delicious. He also included Ferrero and strictly told me not to share. Of course, I didn't follow, I love sharing. Everyone was happy in the boarding house, especially the landlady.
I love to just sit or lie down and watch a good movie. If I am satisfied with the movie, then, I am happy. I usually go for action or suspense movies because I love the thrill. I also go for comedies and horrors, if my mood allows it. Speaking of movies, I found out that "3 Idiots" is on Netflix. I just didn't know where the headset is so I could watch without disturbing everyone because there are no subtitles. And I used to watch movies in the cinema alone too, it makes me happy spending some time with myself.
It doesn't matter if it's walking with nature or walking on a busy road, walking makes me happy. Perhaps because it's an exercise and the body releases happy hormones. I can walk for miles, my eyes love to feast on the sceneries. Now I miss BGC, I used to walk from work to my boarding house, vice versa. It has nice parks and buildings.
When was the last time I slept peacefully? I couldn't remember! All I know right now is I gotta wake up from time to time when the baby cries and that I sleep in one position with my back and tummy exposed to the electric fan. I'll be very happy if I could have a good, peaceful sleep once again. But 4 hours of straight sleep is enough for me to be happy. Now you'll know it when I am grumpy.
I love dancing but either a piece of music to sing or dance along with, is enough for me to be happy. It's a good outlet to express myself you know. Although I am not sure if the people around me would be happy to hear my voice.
Am I too much my friends or just enough? Simple things do make me happy. I wanna add holding hands and a kiss to my list. How about you, what are your simple joys?
I am not sure if I could stay too long because my baby slept late. I will try my best to read your articles and upvote, I apologize if I can't but rest assured I will make it up tomorrow.
