  1. I think the feeling of happiness is hard to explain. Very often I’m happy but I don’t realize it. I’m just feeling good at such a moment.
    I get happier when I seize the day than when I just sit at home doing nothing. I love go out, to do sports, to go shopping, to visit friends and lots of other small things. Also a delicious meal for example can make me happy. When I’m with my friends we often laugh until tears are running down our faces. I’m not a person who can’t be happy alone. Money doesn’t make you happy but it makes life easier.
    I don’t really think that there is a single word which exactly means happiness for me. Words which I think with this special feeling are friends, family, freedom, youth, love and also money.

  5. For me, happiness is to go home and spend time with his family and with the people I love. Happiness is to be at peace with themselves and know how to enjoy the little things. I’m happy when I help someone who needs it and when I think how lucky I am.

    • Many thanks, Valentina! Just a couple of corrections:
      “happiness is going home and spending time with one’s family”
      “Happiness is to being at peace with oneself”

      The meaning of “one” and “one’s”: “one” is the impersonal pronoun. It replaces “me”, “I”, “him”, “her” when we’re making a general statement that could apply to anyone. Informally, people sometimes say or write, “you”, “your” etc.

      I hope this helps,

  10. Really!
    It’s more easier to write anything about the weather is, then what’s meaning happiness for me and Italian people too.
    When I write “Italy” i think to our fantastic cooking product.
    The first, the inimitable ” Fettuccine with meat sauce”.
    For each other, the Italian People isn’t happy because they have lost their faith to the Government. We have House Representative and Senato of Italian Republic which playing with the Laws like a football games. So, we have the same problems of thirty and more years ago. In recent years, from Craxi Government until Mattarella, we have added school decadence, job’s contract that has increased unemployment instead to increase the jobs’ world. Finally, the National Sanitary Service’s collapse has distroyed every kind of certain helps (S.S.N.), closing much more hospital and increase the ticket of medicine. More tax and low salaries had being our Country more poor than other.
    The Italian Happiness is a dream far thirty years ago.
    Happyness is enjoy of children laughs, giving love and helping other people when they are on difficult.
    Happyness is inside ourselves: we must live day by day, as it was the last.
    Regards,
    Serena

  11. There are three many things which make me feel happy:
    – Spending time with my family: my parents live a bit far away from Rome, so I can’t see them when I want.
    – Helping somebody to do something: I like to make things easy on people, doing people favour.
    – Reading a book. I love reading;I think reading move me to other dimensions, away from daily problems and stress.

  12. I think that there are many small things thart make feel good.

    Happiness is:
    -when in a sunny days I running alone and listening to music,
    -when my nephew coming back to school ring my bell to see if I am to home and tell me his day,
    -when I meet my friends for a walk,
    -travelling in news place, making of the new experience a personal growth.

  13. Happiness is…
    When you love your job…and your boss gives you a positive feedback.
    When you pass an exam at university and it’s your final exam!
    When you are travelling in new places and eat different food.
    When you do a sport, in particular running in a sunny day.

  14. Happiness is:

    1 Play with my dog and take him for a walk,
    I like to cuddle and make him feel good,
    I think my dog is a great friend of mine.

    2 Play the guitar and write songs, I think it’s nice
    use my creativity in music,
    Music is an important hobby for me and makes me happy.

    3 Have a stable job and stay well with colleagues,
    It is important in life to have a job and a salary,
    It makes me feel accomplished.

    4 Travel and see new places,
    it’s nice to discover the beauty of other places and visit the great cities of the world it’s great to try new cultures.

    5 Go to the beach in summer and swim at night,

  15. The Happiness is the laugh of my nephews when we play soccer or we color pictures
    The Happiness is when I do a journey to know other cultures and traditions, to see new landascapes.
    The happiness is when arrives the Christmas’time and we become again children.
    The happines is when I have done the trip of my life, when I went to the “artic cirlce”- 38 degrees below zero- for visiting the northern lights.

    • Hello Marco! Thanks very much for this. A nice piece. A few small corrections:
      “[The] Happiness is my nephews laughing when we play soccer”
      No “the” before “happiness”, because “happiness” is a concept. So no article.
      More soon – I hope this helps.

  16. I love watching videos about other cultures, so I can dream about next trips.
    Walking in mountain with other people. I love the smells and colours of the wood and the light through the trees.
