(Day 7 – What makes you happy)
I was feeling a bit down the other day. Been dwelling too much on those un-fav’rite things maybe. So in an effort to cheer myself up, I found going through this crazy blog a friend of mine shared through Twitter. Oh. My. Dad. Super laugh trip. The guy had a lunchbox daily section as well and when I found myself getting started on those, I was hooked. My sad face was slowly turning into a smiley face and kept transforming into a hilarious laugh-out-loud face when certain illustrations hit close to home.
Most of the lunchbox comics were superhero, Star Wars, and cartoon mash-ups but they were still so very funny and I found myself relating to them. Haha. The effects of growing up with a kid brother and superhero-obsessed guy cousins. But anyway, I found myself totally amazed at how Mr. Busy Dad used his creativity to connect with his 9-year-old son. He’s one cool, cool father.
But wait, what did you just hear me say again? Uh-oh. I guess the secret’s out. Superhero, Star Wars, and cartoon mash-ups make me happy. Well, they do.
But then again I’m not that hard to please. Simple things make me happy, little things make my lips curl up into a smile.
Having coffee and cake for breakfast makes me happy.
New-old (i.e. nostalgic) music makes me happy.
Sincere and even wala lang conversations make me happy.
Gabe Bondoc makes me happy.
Seeing dreams fulfilled makes me happy.
Realizing the goodness and greatness of God makes me happy.
Monkeys and monkey tales make me happy.
Listening to your stories makes me happy.
And you – dear reader – you, make me happy as well.
Let’s all think happy thoughts. As Peter Pan says, “They lift you up into the air.”
