I've been feeling pretty down this week. Give me a list of something to be happy about? What's that one thing that cheers you up no matter what. Whether it's something mundane or something big. 😀

I enjoy cooking for other people. The problem though is I have only myself to cook for.

What gives me joy?
Caring for our dogs; walking, feeding, grooming them. Singing, playing my saxophone, painting, woodcarving, gardening, relaxing 😎
Oh yes.... can’t forget eating. Lol 🤤🤭

Like @Keesha - My dog and gardening are important to me. Also enjoy reading (& eating as long as I don't have to cook)
I used to do my family tree, but I think I've gone as far back as possible

I think I have nothing that gives me real joy, things that make me feel better are walking in the country side, listening to rock music, watching comedies, and my hobby, even that is not going to well.

What brings me joy is playing with my cat, watching films, learning my French, eating good food, comedies , being with my kids.

If I could cheer you up, that would give me joy. And I wonder, if you were to post a comment on someone else's thread that had a positive impact on them, would that also impact you?

Nice thread :flowers:
When Im very sad nature and animals always will make me smile, even though I have tears. The laughing magpie. The blackbirds nesting. The bees on the honeysuckle. My plants blooming and smiling in their pots.
When Im not so sad, most things. I never grew up, so theres joy in many small things.
