Making brachos to Hashem.
Putting on tefillin, or doing other mitzvos.

Sometimes, nothing. And the fact that nothing does, when I have so much going for me in my life, and knowing how truly blessed I am with what I have in my life, only makes me sadder still.

My aineklach, and the countless other brachos in my life, make me Supremely Happy. I am happy to be a Jew, I am happy to wake up every morning, even when life is extremely unpleasantly challenging and painful, as it has been this past week (really past month), and I am happy that I can still get up on two feet, see the world around me, hear the laughter of children, and eat the great food that I cook (she said, modestly), or if I am lucky enough to have someone else cook for me. I am most happy when my three year old grandson hugs me and says, “I love you to Hashem, Bubby.” My older grandchildren also bring my husband and me great nachas.
I think even the saddest among us, must have SOMETHING that makes them happy, at least SOME of the time. And if not, then it is just that they have not as yet recognized it. Loving Hashem, makes me really happy, because it permeates the rest of my life and relationships. I hope everyone here finds their happiness.August 12, 2015 10:35 pm at 10:35 pm #1096692pcozMember

Having a minyan that I enjoy davening at. Feeling at home in two shules, with diverse members, nearly all of whom are pretty nice people.
I am happy that b”H I wake up every morning in Eretz Yisrael Hakdosha, along the border between Ephraim and Menashe.
Having a leaky water pipe fixed, so we have cold water, hot water, and water pressure, without the water meter spinning around and around . . . .August 16, 2015 1:27 pm at 1:27 pm #1096697mrym290Member
oomis, thank you for sharing that.
I would say even when I am depressed, looking forward to Shabbos morning keeps me going: Torah study class with the rov and getting to daven with a friendly minyan. Sometimes it’s the only time I smile all week. B”H for that.August 17, 2015 5:48 pm at 5:48 pm #1096699an even yummier cupcakeParticipant
being with my family and friends always makes me happy! and the kinderlach that i teach make me happy. and just looking around my apartment realizing it belongs to me and my husband, and that i have a husband, who is a great guy who does so much for me and is so good to me, who laughs with me, among the million other things he does, that all is a pretty good way to make me happy. and also music, that’s a biggie. and cupcakes, of course (and donuts and cookies and cake and pizza and french fries and hot dogs, and the like)
