If you're happy and you know it...

Did you know that there are 31 types of happiness?

Me neither.

August is Happiness Happens Month.

The Secret Society of Happy People started this month long celebration. Not doing a great job on the secret part but I guess they are too busy being happy!

Here is some info from their site: 

There are three purposes of the month:
  • Recognize and express happiness
  • Listen to others talk about their happiness
  • Don't rain on other people's parades
I'm happy and I know it!

Here's why!

I'm happy my son goes back to school on September 6th!

I'm happy we had such a memorable vacation together as a family.

I'm happy I have such great blogging buddies! 

I'm happy I have chocolate and coffee in my life.

I'm happy for all of my family and friends! 

Are you happy? What makes you happy?

Thank you Tara Tyler for my new cool 200 Followers Badge!


  1. Great list!

    What makes me happy?

    The sun shining. The fact I can walk/run, see, hear, taste, smell, feel compassion. My husband, my dogs, my family and friends. Unexpected presents. Fresh cut flowers. A great cappuccino. Vacations in Italy. Delicious food and amazing, bold red wines.

  2. Don't rain on other people's parades - now that is good advice!
    I'm just happy everyone liked my idea today. I thought I might've come up with something really dumb...

  3. Wait, there's a happy group? I should belong to this. That many types? What happened to just being happy, period? Way cool, now I'm happy. :)

  4. Let's see... what makes me happy? I'm happy that I've got such an awesome family, that I can Figure Skate for two hours every day, and most of all, I'm happy that I can WRITE!
    Something I think is important about being happy: if it's the simple things that make you happy, then you shouldn't have much to be sad about!

  5. i am happy making others happy. glad you like the badge!
    even if i get mad doing it, it's the result that makes it worth it (in middle of making bleeping spirit shakers)

    thanks for boosting my mood! i needed it =)

  6. Isis - Great reasons to be happy! Welcome.

    Alex - It was a great idea. Support is good no matter what!

    Laila - They have a Facebook group too!

    Jess - We shouldn't be sad but sometimes its hard not to be.

    Tara - You are welcome! Glad I could help!


  7. I'm happy every day that I wake up - the alternative is definitely a downer!

    I love your list - mine changes almost from moment to moment - right now I'm happy to be done with work for the day but also happy I have a job.

    We can compare more happy-items Sunday. Oh yes - I'm happy to be seeing you again so soon!! :-D


  8. K. - I'm happy every day when you wake up too!
    Love you, ME!

  9. I am happy if my family is safe and provided for... everything else is a bonus!
