I love the fact that even little sounds can bring me immense happiness. And sometimes I laugh at how amazing our lives can be... My laughing fits usually end with spider webs of mascara heavy tears all down my face as if my brain has strategically connected my tear ducts to this action; as if it wasn't embarrassing enough.Laughing not only displays my happiness, but it is one of the things that makes me really genuinely happy.Or you'll never see my glee so evident as when I finally witness the Coca Cola Christmas ad on tv.These are just a few of the simple things that I love about something as normal as the change of the seasons.The screaming generally begins when you actually get your hands on the tickets; your virtual hands at least.Then you tend to produce an array of inhuman noises as the concert draws near.Or when you're feeling down and the only remedy comes in the human form of my little ball of light Andi.I guess there's something oddly comforting in having a best friend who would kill for you and who you would kill for.We might tell ourselves, "If only things were different, then I'd be happy." But that's not really how happiness works. Their upbeat personalities make it easier for them to be happy. Feeling some positive emotions every day has a big effect on our happiness and well-being.Research shows that just a small portion of happiness (only about 10%) depends on a person's situation. So what does that mean for people who are born with a personality that's on the grumpy side? That's why it's so important to do things that give us positive feelings.
