Easy #35

Easy...like Sunday morning!

Been working on a graphic for the Sunday Easy entries, so I've been a bit absent.  But earlier today I was surfing around and came across a journaler who had Pink's video 'Stupid Girls' playing.  I watched the video (for the first time ever), read the author's entry and comments, went off-line and headed downstairs to the laundry room.  And I got to thinking...

Tell me...

What does happiness mean to you?

Happiness is being who I am, and accepting that. 
It's waking up on the wrong side of the bed in the morning, and going to bed on the right side that night. 
It's smiling at the sight of a dog sitting on the passenger seat of a vehicle, eyes forward...almost human-like. 
It's knowing that bends in the road are placed there for a reason and I will find a way through the turn. 
It's the smile on a baby's face and the sound of a child's laughter. 
It's knowing I have what I need, within. 
It's the sound of a cat or kitten purring on my lap.  
It's creating memories with family, friends and even strangers...who later become friends.
It's giving and receiving hugs. 
It's taking a minute or two each day to do nothing at all, except maybe daydream a bit. 
It's knowing all the love I lost in my youth wasn't really mine, because I have my love today. 
It's connecting with a stranger and immediately sharing common ground. 
It's knowing that some days will be better than others, and some days are going to be shit, that's why it's called life. 
It's accepting the fact that not all dreams come true, and sometimes it's for the best. 
It's sitting by a campfire on a cool night, roasting hot dogs, making s'mores, or just staring into the flames. 

It can't be bought or sold, traded or stolen, fabricated or imagined, possessed or acquired or even manipulated; it can only be found within. 

Now, it's your turn.  I want to know what happiness is to you.  Tell me, then I'll post the answers by next Saturday.
