synonyms: felicity, blessedness, bliss
Simple or cheap things make me happy. Among these things are the rain, ginanggang (grilled unripe banana brushed with margarine and then sprinkled with sugar), and night outs with my friends.
There are people though who claim to have not found or experienced true happiness. For a person like me who's easy to please (you dare not contradict), I find this pretty pathetic. Believe me, finding happiness is not as hard as looking for that winning gold chip in Surf pouches and bars (Eeek! what a rueful metaphor).
Today, I got a forwarded email on How To Be Happy. 30 sentences, 30 tips. I think 30 is too long a list to post and comment on, so I just chose my top 15 tips.
This one goes out to Anne Tolentino. She has told me for the nth time that she never experienced real happiness in her whole 23 years of existence. Well Anne, I hope this helps you.
