The Happiness Tag!

Let me begin by thanking my blog buddy T. Wayne over at the blog A Joyful Process for nominating me to participate in The Happiness Tag award / recognition. It looks like a lot of fun, and I agreed to participate – I was nominated on 4 July, but obviously, the horrific events of the past week dimmed my enthusiasm for a time. Thankfully, there’s no time limit or expiration date on these things – and, today is a new day! It’s the beginning of a new week, so let’s see if we can get the bad taste out of everyone’s mouths.

Now for the short list of rules. The rules for participation are:

1. List 5 things that make you happy.
2. List 5 songs that make you happy.
3. List 5 bloggers that make you happy. Let them know they have been nominated, and you are done.

Allrighty then…let’s do this thing!

Five Things That Make Me Happy:

• Music, singing and dancing – for me, they all go together!
• Reading: I learned to read at a fairly young age and enjoy it immensely.
• Writing: Reading inspires me to write – so, I do!
• Cooking: Almost nothing is more satisfying than cooking up a nice, healthy, delicious meal from scratch. Fresh, local, seasonal foods only!
• Last, but certainly not least, family and friends. For me, close friends are essentially my family, so one doesn’t need to be related to me for me to consider them part of my ‘pack!’

Five songs that make me happy:

Five? Only FIVE?!? That’s a fairly tall order, for me to only choose five songs that make me happy, out of the thousands that I know! Still, with a bit of thought, I came up with a quick list of songs that always make me smile. I hope that they make you smile, too!

DiFranco / Dolph / Reunion & Joey Levine: Life is a Rock (But the Radio Rolled Me)

David Bowie: Blue Jean

Dire Straits: Walk of Life

King Harvest: Dancing in the Moonlight

Tom Petty: I Won’t Back Down

Finally, five blogs that make me happy. This was difficult, because 1. I read a buttload of blogs, and 2. many people are electing to go “Award-Free” as of late…so, it gets harder and harder to nominate people who wish to accept! I will list five, but I’ll waive notifying them…this way, they won’t feel ambushed or obligated, LOL

    Thanks for the nomination! And I think I’ll actually get around to doing this one since getting to list 5 fave songs is greatly alluring. And now I’m off to YouTube… 😉
