TT #4: happy

Thirteen happy “things”

I haven't been feeling very well this week, so it's time to look at what makes me happy!

  • Books - I love books! My own books, bookstores, friend's bookcases, libraries...
  • Pets - Even though it's so hard to say goodbye, pets bring so much joy to my life!
  • Friends - Having real friends who love me no-matter-what makes me feel blessed.
  • Meditation - I should really do it more often, I know it helps me.
  • My marriage - No need to explain!
  • The sea - I could never live too far from the sea, I need it close.
  • Trees - Being with trees, feeling their energy, the peace, their beauty in every season.
  • Dancing - If I'm able to surrender to it, it makes me free and happy.
  • Music - Of course Robbie, but I love a wide range of music (listening to harp music right now).
  • My computer - It's a necessity of life to me; yes, I'm addicted.
  • Shopping - Especially with a kindred spirit or all alone, not always necessary to buy things.
  • Witchy stuff - A big part of my life that most certainly adds to my happiness.
  • Daydreaming - Just snuggle comfortably and dream away...

  2. Those are great -- I can relate to many of them (not the marriage one, though, lol!)

    Have a great week!

    My TT is up!

    Happy Thursday, Tink!

  3. When feeling blue, it is good to make lists like this to keep focused. Great list.

    My TT is up.

  4. Your #s1, 2, 3, 5, 6, 7, 9 and 11 makes me happy too.
    Thanks for dropping by.

  5. It's always nice to go away to a happy place & dream.... A most uplifting pastime...

    Another of my fvourites is watching the sunset, sitting on the beach

    I agree with mostly all of them except maybe the witchy stuff? hehehe. Thanks for stopping by!

    hehe, i love daydreaming too! it gets in the way of my work at times, but hey, one has got to get out of reality once in a while! thanks for visiting. i'm a book worm too. wish i had more time to read though...

  8. I love books too. :) In fact, my list this week is all about books!

  9. Anonymous17/8/06 12:53

    I love books, too! And I so get the 'surrendering part of dancing; I'm the same way.

    I'm with ya on this entire list except for the meditation and witchy stuff. Just 'cuz I don't have any witchy stuff, and I have yet to master a 'quiet/still' mind. Meditation. Yeah, yeah, yeah... how long is this gonna take. [grin]

    Thanks for stopping by my T13. Have a terrific Thursday!

  10. Good list! I've done meditation and actually enjoyed it. However I needed my friend to walk me through it. I'm not a good lone meditator if that makes sense at all!

    Happy TT!

  11. Thanks for stopping by to see my list. Marriage, friends, books, nature and shopping are some of my favorites as well.

  12. Anonymous17/8/06 13:55

    Really good list!! I love books too, can usually never get enough of them. And pets? I miss the ones I used to have and wish desperately I could have some now. (stupid landlord) So many of your list make me happy too, it's wonderful! :)

  13. Anonymous17/8/06 14:04

    Im all the above except the marriage! still waiting on that one! :P
    Great TT! Mines up as well.

  14. Great idea to celebrate what makes you happy. We should all do that sometimes. Thanks for stopping by my 13!

  15. music makes me happy, as do books!

  16. I actually agree with every single one of those... except I go down to the river not the sea. (The train out to coney island is long and honestly the beach is kind of crappy there.) I've been trying to meditate for 20 minutes a day but some days all I get is a few minutes. Makes a difference though!

  17. That list cheered my up too! Thanks for the reminder.

    Have a great Thursday!

  18. I just love your blog and the sound of your life, what fun...

    and it is always a good idea to write a list of what makes us happy, isn't it?

    thanks for the inspiration...

    heres my TT

  21. I love your list!! I couldn't agree with you more about the sea and about books! They make me happy too!!

    Hope you have a great Thursday and that this coming week is a little better than the last!

  22. Marriage, computer, books, friends - in that order. :)

    Thanks for stopping by.

  23. Another list idea that I will "borrow" :-)

  24. Anonymous17/8/06 17:46

  25. Great list. I was reminded of some things I love, but forget to do!

  26. Anonymous17/8/06 18:04

    Hey Tink! Thanks for stopping by my blog to see my TT! I really enjoyed yours. Ta for now dahling.

  27. Great list. # 1, 3, 4, 6 (I don't know about # 5 since I'm not married yet!), 7, 9, 10 and 13 make me happy too :)

  28. OK, now you've done it. Just reading what makes you happy has made me happy!

    My TT is up.

  29. I can't even imagine a world without books. That would be a nightmare!

    Great list, btw. I admire your positive attitude :) Hope you are feeling better!

  30. Many of those, especially the trees and the sea, make me happy too. Hope you feel better!

  31. Anonymous17/8/06 21:58

    Thanks for reminding me of all I have to be thankful for, and thanks for visiting my TT today!

  32. Nice happy things...just add my garden and you have my list. ;)

    Thanks for stopping by my garden.

  33. that's a great list. I love the trees too, but I live in AZ, where it's more desert. Why am I here then you ask??? Family. I'd love to live up north a bit where there are green trees and green grass in front yards instead of rocks and cactus.

  34. Anonymous18/8/06 00:15

    Except for shopping, I'm with you. Shopping is stressful for me, but daydreaming...I love daydreaming.

  35. hhehe loved your TT
    hope it's ok that i've already listed you on mine.

    the witchy stuff (hehehe) is sure nice :)
    it makes me feel more connected to earth

  36. The 1st one: that's totally ME :D

    Nice happy TT!

  37. Ok Im completely smitten with your blog. Im linking you to my TT and I will be back! I could use way more witches in my life.
