This post must be the most difficult one I’ve ever thought of. I’ve been scribbling about a good intro of this since last Sunday but I couldn’t focus for some reasons. I wanted to blame hubby for feeding in that Scarface film, and of all DVD films we have, why the bloody one he thought of watching again. When I asked him why, he reasoned out that Al Pacino is outstanding in that film. Indeed he is. I had a piece of paper and a pen ready just in case thoughts would flow while watching that horrible film. I managed to write something in between but only to delete it afterwards. Hubby paused the film for a while and asked what I was writing. I said I was trying to formulate a good intro for my post. Then, as if he is an expert, he said it’s always difficult to start with the first sentence or find the right word. I agreed with him as it’s always the case when I try to write something. Then he said, “you know what, forget about the first sentence. Start with the second sentence up to the end and then go back to write the beginning”. Then I couldn’t concentrate anymore but laughing out loudly at what he said. And this ends the second part of the post.
Now the first part. This is actually about a meme passed on to me by witty Farah who deliberately listed out ten things that make and have made her happy. I can see if I have ten things, too.
I am happy for having someone who makes me laugh. His happiness is being with me and by sharing his happiness makes me happy, too.
I am happy for everything that’s going on with my job, that my boss trusts me and believes in what I do.
I’m happy for having been accepted at the Goteborg University to complete my Education degree to get a Swedish teaching degree. It will be years of study again, but it’s worth it.
I’m happy for the appreciations I’ve received in every undertaking, from the people I’ve met in whatever circumstances.
I’m happy for having a group of friends I go out with. They’re like my sisters far from home.
I’m happy for the good health of my family in davao. Three years ago, my sister got ill and swollen. I cried a river and I felt hopeless, but thanks be to God she’d overcome it. I’m hoping that nothing like it would happen again.
I’m happy for the little help I’ve extended to some people in need – my family, relatives and friends.
I’m happy for having pretty nieces and handsome nephews. I’m just a proud Tita, hehehe!
I’m happy performing the role as a wife, a worker, a student and a blogger. It’s like a movie full of suspense and surprises. I’m the versatile actor. 🙂
The road to happiness is tough, the experiences can be negative or positive. But the most important thing is that we, ourselves, play the major role along the way. As what Aristotle had said, “happiness depends upon ourselves”.
I’d like to know the things that make or have made Maryam, Myrtle and Ging happy. End of post…
oh,That’s so true.Our greatest happiness in life does not depend on the condition of life .we are each responsible for our own happiness.:)
You got tag!
By being optimistic, we can achieve what we want and be happy. Thanks, Sweetiepie.
My, your husband is really funny. Actually, I could imagine how you were watching that movie with him, and you had a pen and paper with you trying to see if you could think of anything to scribble in this meme (OK, i Admit, my heart goes to you as surely you would be thinking of me a lot too…hehehe since I passed you the meme). And, about the first sentence, he’s SURE DAMN RIGHT! I always have trouble finding the first sentence too, but I would proceed to the next sentence and finish up, and only get to the first sentence last!
oh, you got admission to the university? that’s wonderful My. yes, years of study is OK, you know at the end of it, you’ll be proud of yourself, and when you enjoy doing what you do, even years feels like minutes!
Pretty nieces and handsome nephews? ehemmmm how old are they? now, if you forgot, my boy is 3 and girl is 1. so, are there anyone of your nieces and nephews can go out with my children? LOL
I love reading your happiness list My and thanks so much for doing this meme. Somehow, I feel like I know you a little bit more now…
Farah, this is really one of the interesting memes I’ve received. So I tried to give it a good intro and end so that I can relate myself more to it, rather than a simple meme and for the sake that its a meme. Some memes can bring out the best in us and most of all, would make us learn about the one passing the meme.
Yes, sometimes I thought, I came here not to build a family but to enhance my career. But everything that happens to us is not planned, it just fall into place.
Ahehee, that would be nice. Yes, i have a 3 and 4 yrs old nieces. If only we’re neighbors. 🙂
Likewise, it seems that I have to make a continuation of this post, hehee, with your comments added.
when I did this meme, I felt like writing more too…it’s really fun and a happy meme right?!
Have a nice weekend my dear!
