Summary – Day in day out.. why be emotionally normal? be happy!

Referring to previous comments, each of us has our own favorite type of movie. Some love horror, some favor romantic comedy or others. Basically we love these movies because of the way they bring up emotion within us. Some people love to laugh, so they watched comedy etc.

I was thinking… if we can actually identify what make us happy. I mean what really make us happy. Maybe if we can do the thing a bit more often than other things in a day, our day will be a happier day. I hope you understand. No?

I have a question. I would appreciate if you would enlighten us with your answers. But if you think it is too personal, just answer it in your heart. 🙂

What things or action that once done or seen will immediately make you smile and happy?

Of course there are a lot of things. But I personally am very happy if I can make another person happy. Seriously… I would go great length to make others happy. especially children. (You should see me with my nephew and niece hehe)

For your information, it took about 10 minutes just to figure out what really make me smile. Different people will have different answers and there are a lot of happy things in the world. So don’t just be influenced by people… Search your heart for the one thing that will keep you smiling and happy (even laughing) for the rest of the day.

Once you have identified this, why not do it everyday?

Like myself, maybe I should try to stop by at the local kindergarden here few times a week and entertain the children there. (Everytime I drove my motorcycle pass the kindergarden, I will look at them playing.. and immediately smile)

or I will go back to Kedah as often as possible to see my dearest grandmother (Maktuk). She definitely will be excited and that itself will keep me “:)”

Other people may find watching sitcom is the happiest moment (with all the genius joke). Then you watch sitcoms everyday. Buy DVD of those you really like.

My point is

  • Search your heart on what really make you happy
  • Do it at least once a day (Mandatory)
  • Why bother doing other things that have no emotional value

————— Personal Note ————————–
Other things that make me happy.. (eheh just writing about them is exciting)

  • the Mrs’s laughter (it’s highly contagious)
  • chatting with my dearest brothers. Can’t stop laughing everytime YM’ing with them
  • training in Silat (I’m obsessed)
  • reading comments and message in shoutbox 🙂
  • etc

    Hehe. Just after reading ur Q, i know the answer – i’m happy when i make others happy. Turned out u pun the same eh (in fact perhaps we’re all the same).

    It’s easy to put a mandatory necessity to how often we should do that, but not that easy to really do that. But we could try.

    Another thing which makes me happy – when i see old folks holding hands wit their partners. so sweet!~

    Can i sum it up that love and passion makes ppl happy? Got to go and spray some love~

    kak luna – yerp… smile and have ppl smile back at u will really make me happy.

    tapi kadang2 org skrg ni paranoid sket. kalau kite senyum kat dia, dia dah start pikir “tak betul kut” huhu. so kena pilih gak le org utk disenyum tu

    intan – mmg betul, banyak benda mmg senang diucapkan dari dibuat. saya letak mandatory tu bukannye apa. just menunjukkan pentingnya perkara tu CUBA dilaksanakan. so sama2 lah kita cuba 🙂
