Did I mention Gwyneth? Dopamine? I got this refrigerator magnet made from the VHS box off of Sliding Doors... It's ridiculous, I mean, really...

Being able to attend a fancy dinner party and passing gas next to someone least suspected... yet they get the blame.

RE: What makes you happy?
My kids (when they are acting like humans and not teenagers. I am convinced teenagers are a different species alltogether)
My wife. Fucking amazing that woman.
Cooking. Especially when it's for someone else.
Growing things. Especially when those things feed my family. (how many people have a three acre vegetable garden they tend entirely by hand? If I didn't love it I'd go insane)
Critters. Always something interesting going on with the critters here on the farm. I could just observe for hours, and on the rare occasion I need to talk about something, they make great therapists. Ever listen to the sound of baby rabbits suckling? They make this contented sound that could put you to sleep on your feet.
Solitude. I work at home. I live on a farm. I spend hours at a time exploring the 55 acres of bush on my land. If I didn't like being alone I'd probably go insane.


...that's a start anyways.

RE: What makes you happy?
Tearing through some lonely twisty valley road on my bike.
A good coffee with friends.
Snuggling on the couch with my wife watching movies.
Working on some project in my workshop.
Discussing politics/religion and anything else with my daughter.
A good book.

If you can find joy in the little things you will never be sad, but you need to be sad to truly understand what joy is.

This ^^^ is me getting all deep and philosophical, but, I’m sitting here in brand new full race leathers trying to get them to stretch out a bit and they are super tight!
So chances are no blood is getting to where it should be…

RE: What makes you happy?
1. Spending time with my daughter.
2. Spending time with my father (he was almost taken by brain cancer a couple years ago)
3. Working (yep, I'm a workaholic)
4. Relaxing while watching NFL football or NHL hockey.
5. Laughing at my cat, Leonidas. He follows me all over the house like a duck.

Used to be a hardcore PC gamer but gave that up.

RE: What makes you happy?
My daughter!!!
I can spend hours looking at her pictures and videos of her that cover everything from the time she was born... She keeps me sane! When the world is kicking my ass, she comes through for me.

Hmm..happiness and motivation are two different things however I guess I never really gave the idea much thought.

As far as happiness goes..let's see...I suppose playing my video games makes me feel happy. Doing what I want to do in my personal life makes me feel happy I guess.

As far as motivation goes..I really don't know.

Humankind cannot gain anything without first giving something in return.
To obtain, something of equal value must be lost.
That is Alchemy's first law of Equivalent Exchange.
