“I feel like I’m on top of the world. Honestly, I feel like I’ve climbed a very giant mountain, and I’m just standing right on top with my arms wide open and breathing fresh air.”

What is the best feeling in the world? Winning an important game? Completing a big goal? Some people just like jumping into a warm bed on a cold day. Other people like the feeling they get from exercise. No matter what it is, when we feel our best, we are on top of the world.

To be on top of the world is to feel like life couldn’t be any better. This feeling often comes after doing something important. For example, it’s common for singers to be on top of the world after performing for a big crowd. Also, students graduating from university often feel on top of the world after finishing classes.

Singer Shania Twain stopped making music for a while, so she felt on top of the world once she started up again. She thinks that when people do what they love to do, it is the best feeling in the world.

What makes you feel on top of the world?

Great memory Julito!


If the same situation happens to you , would you feel the same?! :)


Few months ago I had a great chance to travel alone to a foreign country!


It was amazing and unique experience to me!


Of course I met my friend there but I was alone most of the time!


Not only I was on top of the world in my wonderful travel but also I was on cloud nine all the time!!! :))

This topic brings back memories of a time when i felt that I was on top of the world. It was 1979 ,at that time for a short visit i was  in los Angeles , it was then that I was introduced to a guy  who was wearing a turban and from  Sikh  nationality .He told me that he owned  an auto body shop and if i would like to have a look at the cars. I agreed so  he drove me up  to his business .To my surprise his clients were millonaires who own Mercedes Benz, Lamborghines , Ferraris and Rolls Royce . He invited me to   pick one of them and  he would drive me around Hollywood. I chose a Rolls Royce and i sat  in the back seat like a “big shot” and his chauffeur. Ohh, the power of money , i was the center of attention , some girls that were driving by, shouting at me, Baby, Baby !!Should they had known that i could only treat them with a pizza. hahahahahah

I am teaching English to a small group of students. And one day, when one of my students phoned me to notify me that she got the best result in a test that included many students from different English centres. Her news made me feel on top of the world. (It even made my hair stand on end ^^)

I think that each woman feels herself on  top of the world right after she gave birth to her child!!!  Yes!!!  It is incredible feeling to experience ! The feeling of giving new life for your child worth everything. 


Each time I feel myself on the top of the world when I know that I will be in Thai soon. Travelling to the country -paradise adds a sense to my life.
