When you're happy and you know it....!




This post is part of Pavarti.K.Tylers's Community Blog Hop series, August 16-19. I confess I cheated a little on this one. Pav wanted us to write about how we share happiness.  I got carried away and instead wrote a list of what makes me happy, no, its more than that. Its a roll-call of what inspires me to be happy, which I have compiled all in one place. My reasoning: if I am happy, the world is happy too. Does that make sense, or is it just the altruistic, idealist in me who thinks so? Read on to find out:

These are a few of the things which make me happy! Twenty states of being which I often aspire to:

1. Being as cool as George Clooney in Out of Sight
 

2. Moving like MJ in Billie Jean

3. Reading Game of Thrones then re-reading it, and again!


4. Dancing like Jenny from the Block


5. Kicking butt a la Lara Croft


6. Saving the world with as much panache as Ra.One


7. Soaring like a dragon up above the world, so high


8. Like a diamond in the sky


9. Smelling the roses in the back-streets of my neighbourhood


10. Being as confident as Top Gun


11. Belting out Like a Virgin on the Karaoke


12. Walking through Highgate Woods in Autumn


13. Being as wordy as Woody Allen in Manhattan


14. A hot cup of chai carrying me on the next wave of inspiration


15. Seeing a vision


16. Flying with my true love in abandon


17. Finding the rhythm in repetition, surpassing the pain, keeping on like a para-olympian


18. Feeling one with the energy of the universe


19. JUST Being ME

20. Uh! ...Reading all of the above the next time I need motivation :)

So reading through the above its clear that there is a very thin line for me between happiness, motivation & inspiration. Happiness is contagious for I do believe in 'smile and the world smiles back' motto. And hopefully when I am happy, I can spread the feeling and those around me will pick up on it and be happy too. What do you think? Do you agree. Do write in and tell me.
