This past week, I had lunch with a friend who used to be in my critique group. I asked how she was doing, and she said she was fine, and she was happy.
Those words, I'm happy made me start thinking. What makes me happy? I started compiling a list in my mind and decided write about them in my blog.
Here's my list: my faith, my hubby, my family, friends, our kitties, Midnight and Dory, baking for friends and co-workers at holidays and other occasions, and writing.
After answering the question of what makes me happy, I had to ask myself what makes me unhappy. The number one answer to that was pain. The next reason is dimming sight, which I feel sure will be temporary once I have cataract surgery. Anyway, I'm hoping that's the problem as I know I have cataracts.
Okay, I said writing makes me happy, but promotion goes along with being published, and I detest promotion. Why? Because it takes me away from all the things that make me happy. Promotion is a necessary evil if you want to make a name in the publishing world.
My question for you is what makes you happy and what makes you unhappy.
Have a great week. See you next Sunday.
