i am a firm believer that happiness is a choice. we either choose to be happy, or we choose to be miserable.

that doesn't go without saying, that if (god forbid) you are put in a situation where its really really really REALLY hard to be happy, and one still makes that conscious choice to be happy, its a different level of happy if you say, won the lotto.

Trizle is one of my new favorite sites (referred by one of my favorite peers), and i happened to stumble upon this article last night.

just for kicks (and because i had baaad insomnia last night) i googled "happy" under images. the first picture list is homer simpson in his chivies. sweeet.

while i know what some of the things that make me happy are, im not sure homer half naked (and wearing socks!) is one of them. (but it did make me smile.)

some of the LONG list of things that make me happy:

  • the way alley-cat looks and smells right before i wake her up for school. so sweet and innocent still. it makes my mama chakra spin and spin.
  • when i see the greek (no matter how much time has passed since the last time) and i feel overwhelmed with gratefulness, butterflies in tummy, and awe that i was THIS lucky to have found him.
  • making things
  • a perfectly made cup of tea
  • inspiration
  • road trips
  • getting blog posts posted in time.
please share, what makes you happy?

-dancing, singing and working out to Kanye while my trainer shakes her ass.

haha, oh just two. Geoff and then there's Max. He follows me around, he's a little hairy, and honestly he has really bad breath, but I love him. Did I mention he only weighs 20lbs? (and he's my dog and wouldn't know how to cook if it hit him over the head?)
