Here we are and I’ve run into a bit of a quandary. Also, I’m not sure I spelled that work correctly. I’ve been sitting here wondering how to tackle this topic. I know what makes me happy outside of writing. Spending time with my son, jigsaw puzzles, zoos, manga, anime, Legos, tickle fights, and pizza. Tried diving into each one to explain why, but that fell flat. Took me a while, but now I know why:
“Every person has different things that make them happy and they can’t always explain why.”
Seriously, these are things that help us relax and shrug off the tension that has built up over time. Maybe it’s a reward for a good job or just powering down before bed. Maybe it’s something you saved your energy up for because it’s exciting. What attracts you to these things might not be easily explained since it’s so emotional? I’ve tried to explain my love of jigsaw puzzles to people and they don’t always get it. I find them relaxing, but other people thing they’re childish. Same with Legos, manga, anime . . . I think spending time with my son is the only activity that is treated with any respect there. People are just so judge-y.
Now, I could keep rambling or I could open the floor. What makes you happy and draws you into a sense of merriment? No need to explain if you don’t want to. Just declare your love of whatever.
