5 top joyous features of a happy life:

1. I'm delighted that I'm alive.

2. I'm so happy that I love my partner.

3. I'm so thrilled that my partner loves me to the moon and back.

4. I'm so happy that I get to do work I love, and that I meet 
    wonderful people through my work.

5. I feel overjoyed that I have an amazing family, and wonderful

Neil put the message about dying people's regrets on his fridge,

Have a loving your life day.
