I was tagged ages ago by Claire at Nimblejacks, Kim at Heart in the Country and Willow at Contemplating Change for the six things meme, and then by Frogdancer at Dancing with Frogs, for six things that make me happy. I have to confess I'm not a fan of memes, so it always takes me ages to respond. Sorry! As I've already done a couple of six thingys before I'm going on the happiness theme.
Happiness is a state of mind, and I do believe we choose how we feel....I'm a bottle-half-full kind of person and am optimistic by nature. It takes a lot to really knock me sideways. So, my list...
:: spending some time outside, in nature, every day, come rain or shine - usually going for a walk
:: living by the sea, and seeing how it changes every second of the day
:: eating and cooking....cooking and eating....I love food!
:: anything to do with Walter - walking, snuggling up, playing. That boy brings a huge smile to my face!
:: solitude - time on my own is essential for me
:: and currently, I have to say knitting! A bit of a surprise for me, but it makes me really happy - lovely wool, the click of needles, trying to master a new skill, and feeling like I'm making progress. Currently, my first sock is on the needles.
So really...it's the simple things for me - and that list is just a wee one, so many other things make me happy: friends, family, creating, reading...and so it goes on!
This week I was lucky enough to squeeze in a walk on the Towans, over near Godrevy Lighthouse on the north coast. A beautiful bright day with glimpses of sunshine, and a hint of a rainbow.
Ali, this one's for you. And may there be many more.
