      Great hub! I like the way that the ways to be happy are presented in form of a poem.

      There are really a lot of things that we can derive happiness from. Thanks for sharing 17 of them, now we have 999,983+ ways to go. :)

      Good advice pinkhawk. Those suggestions will definitely do it. You made me happy; I was so glad to see a good hub that was not a food hub. So sick of those, and ready for that hum drum hub contest to come to an end, so hubbers will write something I want to read again. (; v
