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 6 2013: I feel happiness in my activity that i do with selfless motive and which spark a light in my thoughts and a bliss rouses within myself giving me the sense of satisfaction of my activity.

    This is happening very rare as in this world to sustain with bundle of responsibility is very hard So the selfless objective is disappearing from matter to matter...

    I feel happy reading / watching / listening Spiritual Discourses from various religions and I feel the message convey in two direction "WithIn" and "UP in The SKY", SO i am really interested in knowing the UNIVERSE up in the Sky - " SPACE " and thru the spiritual reading. [none of this i am getting close - sad]

    Lastly I am agreeing on with Mother Teresa Says....

    “Not all of us can do great things. But we can do small things with great love.”

    Hope this may be a answer which show a path that you intend to walk on.

    B Patel.
