Reasons to be Happy

This was going to be a “Happy St. Patrick’s Day” post, but everyone else is doing that, and I want to be different.

And I’m miffed at the LOML today. We’re fighting, and I’m really not sure why. (BTW: “LOML” means “Love of My Life.”)

Anyhoo, instead of immortalizing our stupid fight in a post, I decided that I would take just five minutes and write down all the reasons I have to be happy. Here’s what I came up with:

  1. My children are healthy.
  2. I am healthy.
  3. I am not homeless.
  4. My car is paid for.
  5. I have full mental health.
  6. I have the use of my arms and legs.
  7. I can smile.
  8. I have a good-paying job with awesome benefits.
  9. I married the love of my life.
  10. I have the right to vote
  11. I have tivo.
  12. Both of my parents and all seven of my brothers and sisters are still alive. (And so are their kids, and their kids’ kids, and all of them are healthy too.)

I didn’t think that was bad for five minutes. What do you have to be happy about?

  1. Those are all very nice reasons to be happy. :o)

  2. You have TIVO?? So jealous!! And that was a good post. πŸ™‚

  3. TIVO…ahhhhh

    That would make me happy, too!

    It is sooo expensive here in Italy. Like 99 Euros for 2 months!

    I’m happy for
    1) the sun shining
    2) Saint Giuseppe Day (and my Giuseppe)
    3) my family’s health


  4. It’s nice to be happy.Life is beautiful to spend a minute being sad!!!

    Cheers from Singapore
