What are you happy for this past year?

Hello everyone,

I spent some time this Christmas in Seattle with my Iphone interviewing the people that live on the streets of Seattle and to ask them what they are happy for. The video is entitled 100 reasons to be happy and it is a testimonial from the people that have had it the toughest The responses were very moving and it had a great effect on me. I would love to know from others what are you truly thankful for in 2011. Much love was shared on that day and I would love to share their message with the world.

So what were you happy for in 2011?

Thank you,
Jonathan Ross

    Jan 19 2012: I'm happy for the simple pleasure presented to me everyday. Living in Asia right now, I am happy for clean air when I breath it. The kindness of strangers has always made me happy and put a smile on my face. The ability to think, learn and share that with others makes me abundantly happy. My children are good people who grace this world. Friends who feel like family are a gift of happiness. Challenges that make me strong and the rewards of living another day make life increasingly happy. Thanks for asking!
