I think happiness is contagious for sure! I have a neighbour who sings. She stopped singing for a few months and I am not sure why because we don't talk at all BUT when she started singing again it made dh and me happy to hear her! Why don't we talk to her .. she's a bit strange and when they first moved in she made it perfectly clear that they valued their privacy! Nice enough ..... Suits me, truth be known. I had a neighbour once who used to be hanging over my side fence every time I left the house!

Yes, hanging out with happy people is uplifting. Hanging around a chronic negative person can be exhausting and can bring one down too.

I used to have a friend that was so negative,, always what she called " pre menstrual.." ,,,, I don't enjoy being around negative people.. lots goes on in life and all is not good or happy, so when there is really nothing wrong,,, "Seize the day" and enjoy it!

Smiling here too even if there will be a huge load of wood to stack this morning. I don't like to get too friendly with neighbours 'cause then you can get the stage that they are in your kitchen all the time .. been there and done that. It is nice to know that all my neighbour's would be there for me and I for them if there was any kind of emergency.

Yes, most definitely, happiness is contagious! One of the best things you can do for yourself is surround yourself with positive attitudes/people--a good laugh can go a long way!
