Hi everyone – Welcome to Day 17 of 21DJC! :)
Yesterday’s question was: “What Makes You Happy?“. (Read the responses.)
Check out some of the things that bring joy to readers at Personal Excellence readers:
“My happiest moments are spending time with my husband and my family, reading, playing the piano, taking pictures and drawing/ painting.” — Kimberly
“My horses, when they’re happily munching away, or they trot up to see me when I come out, or if I’m talking to them and they snort at the right time. Or at work when one of the dogs chases a ball, or a stick, or a leaf, or walks up to me to get petted wiggling so much with excitement that they nearly fall over.” — Laurel
“I am happy when I reach a goal, even when it’s a small one. I am also happy when taking positive action and even before that, when I am making plans and feel pumped about achieving something. And I am so happy and grateful to be alive and have this amazing adventure on the Earth :)))” — Ivona
“What makes me happy? … [It] could be anything. From people to animals, birds, fish, insects, places, memories, art, music, movies, photos, the weather (even if it’s raining), technology, books, magazines, the ocean, the sky, the sun, clouds, aromas, trees, grass, flowers, fruit, vegetables, nuts, seeds, water, puddles, cars, trains, buses, bicycles, planes, and even something as obscure as dog poo on the street, which I will just look at and laugh. The dogs are just doing what needs to be done, so how can that not make anyone happy? :)” — Glenn
“When I feel like I’ve made a difference in someone’s life, then I feel happy.” — Pat Fuller
“Achieving something to me that is not easy.The most vivid and emotional moment for me is when I got my car license, it may be trivial to many people but its the most satisfying experience for me.” — iImprove2
“What I love most about life is that there are so many things to see, explore and learn. We only have so much time and space to expose ourselves to them. Whatever I do, I would like to think that i am learning something from it.” — Viole
“Being independent, supporting myself. Clearing clutter and living simply. Saving money. Random acts of kindness (receiving and performing them). Meditation. Feeling gratitude for all that i have, and dreaming of all the good things to come.”
“What makes me happy? Simple things like: Being with my children, seeing them smile. Feeling loved, feeling that people care about me. Playing with my dogs. Receiving an unexpected gift. Giving someone a gift. Christmas. Reading a book• When I achieve something or reach a your goals, even if it a small thing. Walking barefoot on the beach.” — Ish
“Many things make me happy…. Spending time with my family. Finishing a project. Creating extra ordinary designs. Listening Meaningful Hindi Songs. Reading Motivational Stuff. Achieving success. Logging in to Personal Excellence / Forum :) ” — Kamal
Thank you, Kamal (as well as to the rest of you to mentioned that in your responses). :D I’m really happy to know that being at Personal Excellence makes you happy. :D Guess happiness can be a self-enforcing cycle, aye? ;)

- Seeing people in love.
- Living my purpose. Helping people grow.
- Pursuing and achieving my goals.
- Uncovering my blind spots.
- Running Personal Excellence.
- Working on upcoming projects for Personal Excellence.
- Seeing you happy.
- Knowing I have positively affected someone’s life as a result of what I do.
- Seeing my parents go about their day-to-day activities.
- Living life.
With that said, let’s now move to today’s question!
21DJC Day 17
Today’s question is:
If The World Came To An End Today, How Would You Feel?
Would you be happy? Would you be sad? Would you be nonchalant? Would you wish for more time with your loved ones? Would you wish for more time to fulfill your goals? Would you wish for another chance at life?
Your Task Today:
- Reflect and answer today’s question. There’s no word limit – whether minimum or maximum. Write as few or as many words as you want. It’s all up to what you want to express!
- Share your answer. After you are done writing, copy and paste your answer in the comments area and post it there.
- Check out other participants’ answers. Other participants will be sharing their answers too, so feel free to read and reply to their answers. This is a group course, so let’s support each other in these 21 days.
