Happiness Is…

Thursday, 12 January 2006

...knowing that not everything that puts a smile on your face has a dollar value. My personal favourites are (in no particular order)

  1. Spotting a tupai bolt across the street into a drain / bush / tree.
  2. Knowing there's a significant other to cuddle up to in the mornings when it's raining outside.
  3. Having enough stamina to last through each day.
  4. How God sends little reminders about not having to sweat about the little stuff, e.g. making a dash in a thunderstorm to get to the LRT while motorcyclists have to brave any weather condition daily.
  5. A daily commuter on the train who isn't a grouch.
  6. Knowing my family is strongest when times get rough.
  7. A surprise phone call from a friend whom I haven't heard from in a long time.
  8. Letters! Snail mail, to be precise. Flyers and brochures don't count.
  9. Realising that God hasn't quite given up on me. I'm still here, after all.
  10. Painting something which actually turns out looking vaguely aesthetic.

Ten's a nice number to stop at.
