It's a simple question. Very simple.
And yet - how often do we ask ourselves this very simple question?
How often do we ask each other this very simple question?
So now I ask. I ask myself and you. 'What makes you happy?'
For me it's as simple as the question:
Making my imagination a reality makes me happy.
Be it in creativity, in filmmaking, in writing, in flow, in acting, in puzzle building, in dreaming, in productivity...
I also feel happy when I'm having deep long winded conversations that challenge me, that make me think differently, that promote growth and that are just plain ole' fun! Travel makes me happy. Driving makes me happy. Reading makes me happy. Cats make me happy. Gratitude makes me happy. Food makes me happy. Games make me happy. Games nights with friends me happy. Friends. Friends make me happy. I make myself happy.
In April 2020, while experiencing her first ever global pandemic, Tamar Pelzig pledged to write something every day, even if it's only a word, so she welcomed to the world a daily blog to keep her creative writing wheels rolling.
