I equate happiness with cheerful laughter and other positive body languages. I find the company of funny people invaluable. Happiness is an emotion. Emotions are reactions to our thoughts. Thoughts are influenced by observation of our environment – the things we do, things we see, touch or even feel and the people around can influence these emotions.
I derive happiness from the things I’m passionate about. Happiness is the only natural form of glow I know. When you’re happy, it shows. It is a positive and pleasant feeling of contentment and intense joy. I derive happiness from the most common things, wearing a big top or oversized slippers, being comfortable enough gives me immense joy and happiness. Laughing with friends, taking a walk with someone I like. The list is unending.
I am a happy woman because I chose to be happy and because I’m in a happy relationship with the people and things that matters. I’m not saying that self-love and self-knowledge isn’t the way to true happiness, but I also believe there are other factors that are a great source of happiness for me it’s the following;

Seven Things That Make Me Happy
Cooking: I spend a good amount of time in the kitchen. I love cooking. The idea of trying new recipes and eventually getting it right always makes my heart leap for joy. Most times when I’m bored or unhappy, the process of cooking and the beauty of the end product, puts a smile on my face and makes the trouble disappear. I cook for myself, my family and sometimes for my friends. I believe the act of cooking to be a form of care, respect and love for myself and the people I cook for. I love sharing. I love caring.
Playing Host: I enjoy being a hostess. Since I’m so good at it, it’s more than a hobby to me. You have to be comfortable to make others comfortable. The comfortability and happiness of my guests instigate great happiness to me. Since I already enjoy cooking, it’s greater joy when I’m not the only one consuming the delicacy. I put a lot of love into my cooking, same love I transfer to my guests. I entertain my guests with varieties of activities. We play games, talk and even get to be productive while having fun. The ability to see my guests happy and eager for a next visit is a bunch of happiness. It is a wonderful feeling when your guests are not bored and distracted by their phones.

Dancing: I’m not even a very good dancer but I guess dancing is something anybody can do. All you have to do is move your body, be flexible enough to grind and roll, yeah?. Dancing is even a fun way to maintain our body weight and flatten the tummy. It is a good way to stay happy and heal emotional pain. Sometimes, all I need to do is play music and move my body like it’s nobody’s business.
Reading: Reading has a lot of advantages and there are different reasons people read. For me, I read for the pleasure I get from reading. A good book makes me happy and relaxed. It is magical that you can travel to a different time, a place you’ve never been just by sitting in the comfort of your home and opening a book. It is intriguing that you can escape the real world, leave your reality and wonder into a different world. Feel what the characters feel and see what they see.

Seven Things That Make Me Happy
Writing: When life seems gloomy and boring, I’ve seen myself getting out of such mood by writing. The act of writing has actually saved me from depression and has been helpful in the kind of decisions I make. Writing makes a difficult situation become less difficult. Once you’ve written it down, it becomes clearer and less complicated. It helps me feel better. If writing about a sad moment makes me feel better, how do you think I feel when I write about a happy moment. Writing has opened the doors to different worlds for me.
Movies: As distracting and unproductive movies may seem, I enjoy movies and I watch a lot of movies, almost daily. My love for movies does not make me less productive than I should be rather, it’s the opposite. Anything done without moderation is dangerous, having a schedule and following them keeps you on the check. Good movies prepare me mentally for the real world. I learn a lot through the movies I see. Whether it’s going to the movies, in my house or at a friend’s, a good movie relaxes my nerves. Watching the good type of movies changes your perspective and influences you into making better decisions.

Good loving: There is something about loving a woman the way she wants to be loved. Women are different. We are not so complicated. The complication is in using the same formula for different women. Various women want different things from a relationship. For me, the little things like a text in the middle of the day is my own dose of happiness. There are ladies that see flowers and chocolates as trivial. That’s not me. I find flowers and chocolates romantic. Playing my favourite song and dancing with me would leave me bragging to all my friends about how amazing my man is. Remind me of the beautiful memories we’ve shared. Breakfast in bed would be so thoughtful of you, I really wouldn’t mind if the toast is burnt or that the egg is over-fired, lol, maybe I’ll mind little but such intentions are big deal to me. Take care of me when I’m sick. Pamper me. Stay in the kitchen and watch me cook, talk to me, make me laugh. Watch me dress up, help me adjust my dress, randomly touch me. All-over body massage doesn’t sound bad, allow me to return the favour too. Call me a very nice pet name, be sweet, be creative, be funny.
Every woman’s happiness is somehow tied to a man. The urge for companionship is a burning desire in every woman. Happy love life is the most important life.
