10 things that make me happy


Lucy Lopez of Planet Happiness tagged me with the question, which are ten things, that make you happy.


Dear readers, men are mentally simply built and so the ladies please be lenient withe the listing of the simple joys of my life....

1st It makes me happy when I read comments from my readers. I'm always amazed anew how versatile the comments are and how clever people are. Our community is wealth.
2nd I am delighted whenever I see fireworks. The glittering intense colors make me happy while they creep into the sky and start their futile work to light the night the delight of my eyes is triggered and my soul is tickled. They burst apart and drop dying down back to earth ... fun.
3rd Children laughing. Children's laughter makes me happy when I hear and see them. The happiness of children is contagious and reminds me of many happy hours of childhood ....
4th A new book in the hands. To feel the binding, to open it for the first time and to appreciate the quality of the paper, to acknowledge the printing, promises a good happy reading.
5th If a task on the work is concluded successfully, I am happy. It is never sure that working could be brought successfully to an end.
6th Meditation makes me happy. If the focus of attention wanders away from everyday life and the thoughts keep silent, I an captured by a happy feeling ....
7th To read a poem that speaks to me, wherein I feel that the poet has managed to catch a feeling, included in the text like a tear in a glass ....
8th Relishing chocolate makes me happy. Slowly dissolves the chocolate on my tongue and runs on her way in the stomach over any possible taste bud of the tongue.
9th The first cup of coffee in the morning makes me happy. It is not only awakening by the spicy bitter taste, but also the scent which tickles the nose and the effect of caffeine.
10th New rumors, to hear gossip and the eternal chines whisper games of the German working environment is humdinger. Better than the 'Bild Zeitung', more exciting than any street ballad, and more relaxing than half an hour at the masseur.

Whoever feels like it, consider yourself tagged and carry your happiness message into the wonderful blog world.

Genuine pleasure is derived from simple things, that's why they say that simple little things mean a lot. A heart warming post Ray. You have brought a smile to my lips. Thanks for sharing.

Ray - I'm SO glad I read this - you say you are not a native English speaker, but you write in an amazing way - I can't describe it because I'm not that good a writer myself. (you must make sure you pop over to my blog in the next few days - hint, hint)

Robin (the LLF one))

Ah that first cup of coffee, a good new book, and children's laughter. Indeed the best pleasures.

Great list of life's simple pleasures! I agreed with all except for the coffee since I'm not a coffee drinker--especially liked the chocolate one! Made me want some, yum, yum.
