What does happiness look like to you?
For me it's...
Hearing birds sing.
Feeling the sun on my face.
Frantically licking a melting ice cream.
Listening to kids giggle.
The smell of rain.
Seeing excitement on my kids faces.
Playing board games with my family.
Seeing the excitement in my dogs eyes when I come home and being greeted by my dogs.
Sitting next to SO watching TV and SO giving me the remote (I don't watch much tv).
Going for bike rides with SO.
The small things are the big things when it comes to happiness.
I'm no expert, but have learnt enough to know where to look for answers.

So true. Warren zevon's last interview on Letterman he said "enjoy every sandwich".
And great memories are even greater when shared with a loved one

*Staying in the moment for my family for a prolonged time
*Putting my family before myself
*Being faithful to my partner and satisfying his needs
*Keeping myself and my family alive (actually, this is probably my top measure of daily success.)
*Earning enough to not need to make decisions based on affordability
*Either working for an organisation I fully believe in, or for myself
*Being in complete control of my mind and emotions
*Being one step ahead. Of everybody, at all times. When that is impossible...at least being aware
*Perfect tidiness, perfect design, perfect organisation and planning...perfection in everything
*Living a life where I can look back and think it was worth having lived
*As many new / intense experiences per day as possible
*Alongside total stability
*Learning new things and perspectives
*Being completely understood
*My children. Sometimes.
*Not Being the chief decision maker - second in command is ideal...but v much depends on the first
*Isolated places - but not for too long
*Close circles of friends who know me intimately
*Being able to come and go without restriction
*An open relationship - with very clear boundaries
*Music, books, theatre in abundance
*Rich colours, fabrics, tastes. No minimalism.
*Travel. Without fear. Observing different places and cultures
*A world without the news. ideally without the mechanisms behind it all...but just not seeing it would suffice temporarily
*No phones or computers
*Partnership with animals
*Being able to use my skills, & appreciated for it
*Falling asleep in a partner's arms and forgetting what you were worrying about
*The illusion of initial love (reciprocal)
