What is something you do that makes you genuinely happy?

I want to know what makes you happy. An activity or something of that sort. Something you always look forward to and that you could see yourself doing all the time. If this thing is NOT your job, then I am curious to find out your reasoning of why it is not. I'll read and respond to all answers. I'm a 18 year old kid about to go into college and responding would really help me out. Thanks.

  • May 5 2013: Thank you Aidan for your question. I really enjoyed reading the answers here.

    I would say that doing things by following my inner rhythm, makes me always happy. This about honoring your passions, and participating in life at your own pace, with authenticity.
    This is true regarding the big things and the small everyday things. For example, although I have tons of things to do now, I took a few mins to read the answers and post here. I felt the attraction, and I responded.

    What attracts you? Go there. The rest you will figure out. Best of luck (and happiness) to you!
