Happiness!

What is it that makes you happy?  Is it  free time, shopping, movies, reading, going for walks, sporting events, cooking, blogging?  Any of these hit home with you.  My sister and I were discussing a book that she has just read "The Happiness Project",

 http://www.happiness-project.com/ in which the author Gretchen Rubin tries to discover what is it that really makes her happy or what she has fun doing?  So often, people invite us to participate in something with them and they say "come on, it'll be fun".  But is it fun for them or is it fun for you? Sometimes we join in just to spend time with the person, for your relationship aspect. Sometimes we join in because we can't say no, and sometimes we join in to Have Fun!  She suggests thinking back to when you were a child, what did you think was fun and maybe it still is what makes you happy. Since our conversation I have really been thinking about what it is that I really get a kick out of, and it's so many things, from being with my kids, decorataing, crafting, cooking, spending time alone, going to the movies, and on and on, but I also know what doesn't really do it for me too. 
I am participating in a blog hop on Happiness,with a few other bloggers check out the next blogger in line, and maybe you'll discover something new about yourself and what floats your boat, or should I say, brings Happiness into your life! http://sophistishe.com/,  http://www.thatnewslady.com/ , http://oh.so-very.me/site/

Happy Day!
