Happiness is.............................

So I am writing this as an entry to Get Lippies' competition piece.

but it really got me thinking. What does make me happy?

I could go cheesy and say my children (but seeing as I love them and want to strangle them in equal measures i thought i should give that a miss)

So I decided to tell you all what makes me happy.


On my back i have a tattoo. A sunshine with Carpe Diem written underneath. It means "Seize the Day" which is my motto in life.

My father was an extremely busy man. He built up his own business from nothing, working all the hours that god sent so that when he retired early at 55 he could reap the rewards of all his hard work.

He never made it.

Unfortunately Lung Cancer took him from us many years too soon. But it made me angry that all he had worked to acheive in his life, all his dreams, were never realised.

There was so much that he wanted to do that he never got to as he put them off until he retired.

The gift that my father left me was to live each day as if it was my last.

I enjoy the sunrise in the morning, childrens laughter as I pass a playground (I hope they aren't laughing AT me) even the sad things in life I embrace as they help to shape me as a person.

I enjoy LIFE and it makes me happy.

True Happiness for me is cherishing every second we spend on this earth. It is short. We need to make it sweet.
