The "Happiness is...." Contest!

For the month of July that is the question to answer, here at: Take A Happy Break!

In a comment for this post, complete this sentence:

Happiness is....

As it says in the song...happiness IS different things to different people.

I thought it would be fun to host a summer contest and ask that simple question.

If you had to sum up your definition of happiness in one sentence, what would it be?

                        A few minor details....              :<)    
* Contest will close July 31st.

* One entry per person.
* Winners of the prizes will be posted here at Happy Break, the first week in August.
* Each entry will be given a number and prize winners will be chosen by a random number system.

* Open to all readers, wherever you live!

* Prizes must be claimed by August 15th so stop by in early August to see if you are one of the winners!

* I'll be notifying the winners and getting contact information for mailing out prizes in early August.
* Any unclaimed prizes by August 15th will then be given to the next random number generated.


I think it's going to be a lot of fun to read what your various definitions of "happiness" are.

Please spread the word on your blogs, to friends etc...and take the contest button/post link  if you'd like to add it to your own blog! The more, the merrier! Thank you.

Speaking of prizes. I decided to have a number of smaller ones so that more readers could potentially win. I LOVE freebies, love prizes and I am so happy to be able to host this contest and offer the following prizes to you:

Drumroll please....and in no particular order:

I could come up with so many answers that mean happiness to me.
But only one comment so ...

Happiness is taking a snuggle break with my husband or my furry friends!
That's what came to mind.

Wonderful prizes!
Great contest!

Enjoy your weeknd, G.

Joseph said...

I can't enter (for obvious reasons, me and the Ched that is) but I do think it's a great idea to focus on happy thoughts for a contest. We all do have our own personal definitions of what is happiness.

Lorraine said...

WOW and we're already July 3 so herre's mine:

happines is remembering that you are Love made from and living as Love

KnitNana said...

Happiness is two warm, soft, snuggly "meezer" cats!
(The Meezer and The Tonk!)

Keep 'em coming!!!

Hugs and Happy Week, G :<)

I did not realize you wrote a cookbook, that is awesome!

Happiness is: when my heart is open and joy and care pour out to all those around me.

Happiness is knowing you are valued for exactly who you are.

Hi Geraldine,

Happiness me, happiness is snuggling with my newborn granddaughter as she drifts off to sleep in my arms.

Ramesh Sood said...

I've enjoyed reading the comments too, good stuff indeed!!

happiness is seeing my two boys smile at me with love shining in their eyes

Geraldine said...

I got to thinking about what my own response would be to this question so here goes:

"Happiness is knowing you are in exactly the right place at exactly the right time."

I am SO enjoying your happiness interpretations, wonderful!

And no, I'm not entered for a prize LOL

Hugs and Happy Wednesday, G :<)

This is very shallow... Happiness is a cosmopolitan while listening to the surf!

ms pie said...

happiness is a yard full of blooming flowers on a perfectly sunny summer day.

...hope you are having a wonderful vacation away from the screen... i can totally relate... it is hard getting back online and writing...

I really like all the responses so far. It makes me happy reading them.
But for me -
Happiness is seeing the birds fly against the sparkling blue sky, lively and joyful, and knowing that no matter what the day brings I can see them again and again.

Good luck, everyone!
