View Full Version : What made you happy today ?

Hello board :)

I just thought we could start a thread where we simply share things that made us happy today, in a very simple manner. It could be related to Buddhism, or not.

I'll start :

I'm happy my nephew got a present today

Hello BlueFaky,

Seeing the sun shining on a winter morning made me feel happy today .

Bright sunshine to counteract the brutal cold (minus 12F, i.e., minus 25C) and scratching my dog's warm belly.

Happiness has eluded me. I am content and have peace of mind.

Putting a beautiful big Bumble-Bee outside and watching it fly away. (It had accidentally flown through my window)

Putting a smile on my face as I sat down to meditate, normally I'm so caught up in trying to concentrate that my meditation makes me calm, today there was a serene peace in that calm.

Standing quietly outside listening to birds singing - and it wasn't raining!

Seeing a bird checking out one of the bird houses we put up by the woods. Really hoping a bird family will move in!

My Son asked me how to meditate today

Brilliant! How old is he ?

Waking up this morning made me feel happy today - because life is impermanent and very uncertain.

Hi Aloka

Brilliant about sums it up !! He is thirty five, always been too busy making a success in life, although he was brought up around Buddhism he thought material success was the main goal, he now lives in the USA and has achieved what most would consider a materially very successful life style, he is not happy and content and is now ready to see the benefits of the practice, hope he sticks through the early years !!

Walking meditation in the woods. Have found a quiet path off the beaten path.

My guests went home today after a week.

Aloka, when I wake up in the morning and I am breathing it is going to be a great day.

Waking up in the morning and not breathing will leave me with a problem but as I spent all my working life solving problems I should ne okay.

Peace Gerry

Any day I wake up and put my feet on the floor is a good day.

I got to sit and talk with several different people about different things. I didn't worry about what they thought of me and I felt kindness and freedom. It isn't always like that but today was good:up2:
