What Makes Me Happy

by a young man, age 15

I feel happy
I don’t know why
I don’t pay attention to what makes me feel happy

I like to read
It makes me happy
When it’s a good book
Harry Potter is my favorite

I like to play with LEGO’s
It makes me happy
I like to work with my hands
The boat is my favorite

I like to be outside in nature
It makes me happy
I like to see wild animals
Horses are my favorite

I like to work with wood
It makes me happy
It’s fun to build different things
The chest I built is my favorite

I feel happy
