My family and friends make me happy, probably taken a little for granted when i was younger, but now i really cherish them all.

Good health of course is a blessing i have at the moment, but I drive for a pharmacy so i see so many people who unfortunately are not so lucky.

I consider myself fortunate to be happy with the small and inexpensive things in life, fishing and a few beers with friends and i want for no more. I feel sorry for people who are always wishing for things they really can't afford, they will never achieve true happiness.

My current source of happyness is a resently purchased vintage bamboo rod that i have been tinkering around with for the last couple of weeks. It cost me very little, which made me even happier.
One of my friends jokes, i have enough cane to get the fire started when i finally hit the end of the line 🤣

Growing too many nasturtiums is an exercise in all round happiness, bear with me..£2.80 for a packet of seeds, one in each yogurt pot en route to recycling, give it a month or so till one flower appears, stick them in a bigger pot and you got flowers everywhere.....then give the 90 extra ones to people and spread the happiness, you get a lot of nasturtium happiness for £2.80

I think this is a great question and it's been interesting reading folks replies.

I feel happy when walking my 12 year old arthritic springer spaniel, I know she won't be around forever so seeing her enjoy herself when out makes me smile.

Recently I have been doing alot of walking and searching for a rising trout. Just hearing or seeing a rise has been like an intense relief sort of happiness. Like your horse winning the race. It's been a long winter for me.

I find happiness is fleeting, hold onto whatever makes you happy if you can.

Waking up & opening my eyes again. Knowing I've survived to see another day & make choices of what I wish to do & go to see people I care about knowing they care about me. Oh, plus the fact you lot are here too.... ;)
After everything I've been every day I open my eyes I'm grateful. And look forward to the coming day. And the forum members are great people.. 👍😜

All sorts of things make me happy. Watching one of my dogs pull off a long retrieve after a strong running cock pheasant is one. Catching and admiring a really nicely marked wild Kennet brown on Wednesday is another. Watching England win at cricket. Getting a big, chrome-bright full tailed Farmoor rainbow in the net. Just being around to see another day no matter what the weather.
