It's a mixture of everything. Feb 13, 2009

Are there any other in favor?

Yes...

A little of everything combined. None of them are individually my main source of happiness.

A combination Feb 13, 2009

A combination, plus other family members in addition to my parents - surely others have brothers/sisters/cousins/distant relatives who also make them happy?

No S/O and no kids, but one cat, who is a source of happiness and annoyance in equal measure (for the latter, I'm thinking about when she wakes me up at 5am, sits on my keyboard and bites my ankles. These are all generally daily occurrences).

Myself Feb 13, 2009

Although all those things can contribute, my main source of happiness is my own attitude towards those things.

A mixture Feb 13, 2009

Yes, a mixture too, my job is a source of happiness most of the time, my future husband, and I also take great pleasure in photography - I LOVE it and it's a change from translating!

A combination of all, of course! Feb 13, 2009

Wow, that was a difficult one! I'm sure no one can truly decide on only one of the points!

- My children are, of course, one of my main sources of happiness;

- my friends are another one, of course;

- my work/job/interest in the language are another one.

Those are the main sources of happiness.

It would be very interesting to know, if someone (and why!) can decide on only
one of the suggested points!!!?

My son, my pets, my job, my hobbies....can't really decide which one plays the most important role, but all of them do.

My pets Feb 13, 2009

My pets since there is no significant other and no regular job.

I can broaden the issue to my hobbies, which include tennis, juggling, acrobatics, hiking and mountaineering and rowing.

How can I choose? Feb 13, 2009

I could not possibly choose between my husband and my daughter as my "main source of happiness," but be assured that those two are at least 80% responsible for my joy in life.

Poll results so far: Children top, parents bottom! Feb 13, 2009

Isn't that interesting, and a bit sad?

Reminds me of a saying I heard from my mum (apparently it's originally Turkish?):

"I love you so much, my daughter", said the mother. "And I too," replied the daughter, "love my daughter".


(replied "my children" by the way)
