Happiness.... :-) a part of a BIG smile.....

well, that one word says soo.. much and still doesn't say that much!that's what i have always felt.
to me, happiness is a state of the is a state that is connected to the circumstances, surroundings, the people around u, your likes and your dislikes, or it may just be something that u like to do.
(According to wikipedia,
Happiness is an emotional or affective state that feels good or pleasing).
that is pretty accurate right? there are so many things that make people happy, it may b something small or mayb a big just totally depends on wht u feel at tht given moment!

have been thinking for sometime as to what makes me happy, or what might make me happy.u know what actually, things are so interconnected, it's like a mesh up there in the little incident which makes u happy at time A, may or may not give u the same happiness or pleasure at another time B. and a day when two or three good, nice things happen, thn that can be added as a bonus!
well today was one such day, all things fell neatly into place, just the way i like it. right from my mornin' tea to my diet coke in the nite. more days like this and i may go on a happy high(right up there on cloud nine) but it just feels so super, u don't wanna get down. didn't even mind the work!!so i think, pretty good eh for a normal day?not bad, and i can surely go to bed smiling:)

i was thinking about all the things that make me goes(not all i think, but surely i can remember a few)
- speaking to my mom this morning(she is out of town and am missing her)
-speaking to my mom at anytime actually unless i have had a fight with her(thn also sometimes it gives me a perverse pleasure)
- playing with pepper(my very spoilt pup)
- going to the gym
- sometimes just going for a run, with my headphones and loud music playing
- playing a good game of tennis
-sitting and chatting for hours on end with friends
-listening to music

-memories ofall the times and time i had with my dad
- chocolates
-brown bomb( my fav ice cream, its like a delite for the chocoholics.a dark chocolate ice cream, (with chocolate chips) served with a chocolate walnut cake and chocolate sauce) yummm...just thinking abt it makes me smile.
- talking to R on the phone, or just chatting with him
-making people laugh with all my PJs
-seeing people smile, laugh
-my b'day
-watching a good comedy movie

-dancing (ofcourse to my own beat and rythm, have a few left feet!)

-feel really happy whn i finish the crossword(espeacially on saturdays, as it is tougher)
- whn i finish my su do ku puzzle for the day (i feel real good tht my brains haven't rotted completely and am still able to use the upper compartment)
-somebody says, hey u have lost weight!!tht makes my day:)
-laughing out loud without a care in the world.this happens so damn rarely!!!
-going out with friends
-sitting and giggling like a nut, for everything, with D
-memories of school, college
-whn i think of all the times i have made a fool of myself,always always brings a smile to myself
-getting up in the morning and there is a mail from R in the mailbox:)
-making all the grumps in the world smile by just saying "good morning".they just will have to smile ;)
-sunshine(hate gloomy, rainy days)
-diet coke (addicted to it)
-feel real happy whn i buy a small trinket or earing at the side stalls at com. street for a lesser price(cheaper the better ;)thts my motto)
- whn i feel i have succeeded in bargaining and got a good deal (invariably get to knw later tht i may hav paid more, but surely n truly keep trying tht mayb someday i will succeed)total wishful thinking....
-driving -yes even in the B'lore traffic!!
-smileys, emoticons

some qoutes on happiness and being happy..

-Success is not the key to happiness. Happiness is the key to success. If you love what you are doing, you will be successful.

Allan K. Chalmers:
The Grand essentials of happiness are: something to do, something to love, and something to hope for.

George Sand:
There is only one happiness in life, to love and be loved.

Happiness is always here, but covered by thoughts, desires and fears.

Happiness is a state of mind. More correctly put, it is the state beyond the mind.

If you smile while you talk, you make people happy

Learn to laugh. This will make you feel better.

"Three grand essentials to happiness in this life are something to do, something to love, and something to hope for."
-- Joseph Addison

"It isn't necessary to be rich and famous to be happy. It's only necessary to be rich."
-- Alan Alda

"Real happiness is cheap enough, yet how dearly we pay for its counterfeit."
-- Hosea Ballou

"Happiness is good health and a bad memory."
-- Ingrid Bergman

"When we are happy we are always good, but when we are good we are not always happy."
-- Oscar Wilde

Whoever said money can't buy happiness didn't know where to shop.
-Gertrude Stein

Some cause happiness wherever they go; others, whenever they go.
Oscar Wilde

All I ask is the chance to prove that money can't make me happy.
Spike Milligan

To be stupid, selfish, and have good health are three requirements for happiness, though if stupidity is lacking, all is lost.
Gustave Flaubert

"It's more fun when you're not the only one having it."

" The most thoroughly wasted of all days is that on which one has not laughed"
- Nicolas de Chamfort
