    Yes............Sure there are things I am unhappy about and want to improve, but the bottom line is that I am happy because I feel connected to things that are immune to change.

    Also, remind yourself of the things you are grateful for, rather than what you don't have. By doing this, it shifts the focus of your mind.

    Happy is very relative.

    One of the happiest folks I have known lived in a 3 room shack until the merry ago of 101. Great Uncle Andrew led a wonderful life, on his terms, with many adventures, without much material possession but it was the life he wanted.

    Some of the most miserable folks I know are self-centered, materialistic, penis-envying creeps.

    There's no reason to not be happy all the time.

    If you have a problem, and there's a solution, you should get going on it. If there's no solution, then you need to head another direction.

    i think moments of reallyhappiness are fleeting and far inbetween. to maintain a state of reallyhappiness is like having a neverendingorgasm. no one can survive it and if they do, they cant survive the oh-so-shitty-world after that.

    well perhaps not a neverendingorgasmicon_lol.gif but more like the novelty feeling of achievement when you're returned a 100% paper or when you're floating home after the date of your life...

    at best, i maintain the semblance of 'very' happy, but am generally happy with the direction my life is headed! icon_cool.gif

    I would say I am happier now than I have been in about a year and a half. First job offer in a year and I am no longer in an apartment where I am disrespected almost on a daily basis by a roommate that calls me friend. So yea, I am happy. icon_lol.gif

    On a scale from 1-10 (10 being the "happiest I have ever been"), I'm about an 8.

    Happiest in my life. I suppose I could be happier still, a few clouds hanging over me. But a very big improvement over what I once had.

    And the big break came when I realized I was gay, albeit more than late, the great dividing line in my life. There is no happiness like finally realizing who and what you really are, when you've spent most of your life in denial. I wouldn't recommend that as a deliberate technique for anyone, so you'll just have to trust me on this. LOL!

    I would say happiness is relative, but I don't see the point in being miserable myself.

    I am personally happy because I have my health and an intelligent functioning mind. Great circle of friends, and a loving supportive family. I don't always like my job (who does haha), but in today's economic times I'm thankful that I have a job that hasn't been threatened by the slowdown (No days cut, no pay cut, actually got a raise, and vacation time unaffected). So I have happiness in my financial and work security.

    On a superficial level I'm happy that winter is almost over and I can go outside shirtless.

    I'm happy to being going back to Tokyo to see my family and SHOP!!!! HAHA!

    Suerte! Take care! icon_smile.gif

    Ciao!

    The question is if YOU are happy. Not the your acquaintances. Fail.

    On a scale from 1-10, I'm an 8. (1 being 'Happy' and 10 being 'unHappy')

    Hmm! Good question.

    Right now at this point and time in my life I wouldn't say I'm happy but I'm not displeased with what I have at the moment. Things could always be better but looking around and seeing all the craziness and misfortune that others have endured thiungs could be worse therefore I consider myself lucky.

    I would say I'm contempt .

    If you feel contempt, that may explain why you can't feel happy. Or did you mean "content"? icon_wink.gif

    I'm happy with looking at a handsome kisser like the one above me.
    With company like that, I might stay B&W a while longer.
