Happiness Is ...

It's not hard for me to be happy.  I'm not a high maintenance person nor do I have to have expensive things around me to be content. 

Good friends and family, warmth perhaps accompanied by a glass of wine.  I love music, visual arts, a good movie ... something funny perhaps.

Nature, a clear view, some fresh air.  Birds singing.  My dogs running happily around, a cat on my lap.

Being close to water, a lake, river or the sea - amongst my favourite places to be. 

It's not hard to be happy ... but sometimes life gets in the way.  

The sunset this evening is magnificent, I have a glass of wine and my family around me.  Right now, at this moment, I am happy ... that's what is important.

Bliss is happy...the sentence holds true. :)

Real life gets in the way far too much from what is important in life and what makes you happy. It is the simple pleasures, those you love with you, a great film, a sublime piece of music, Liverpool winning for a change :)....a book, birdsong, all those things and more.<br />
