What Things in Your Life Make You Happy? 2

A few days ago I wrote about this topic, What Things in Your Life Make You Happy?, and here I am insisting on it - being happy is important, you know, and sometimes it is difficult to achieve but other times we just don´t know what it takes so let me give you some ideas.
This is a video about 88-year-old Johnny Barnes, a man from Bermuda, who considers himself a happy man and who devotes six hours every day to smile and wish a good day to people driving around in their cars (most of them on their way to work). 

This video, directed by Matt Morris, has won a few awards, the Audience Award for Best Short Film at the AFI/Discovery Silverdocs and the Best Documentary Short Film at the Sidewalk Film Festival, among others, so it may be worth giving it a try. From the point of view of English, it can be used to practise your listening (very rarely do we get the chance of hearing someone with his accent).
