Considering everything, on average, are you happy?

Yeah, but I'd be even happier if you were sitting in my lap right now Fras ;)

Yup, I am happy... would be even happier once my proposal is approved.

Are you happy, Frasbee?

I think the appropriate word for me would be:

Content.

I am lacking in the friends and love-life department. That's all that is wrong...

I too am lacking friends.

As a result I'm feeling a bit home sick.

But I generally speaking, things have been on an upswing for me.

I am happy on occassion, but like joe, the better adjective would be content.

Make that 3...I know a lot of people through school. But non of them are really friends.

But I'm not letting it bother me. I see it as a way for me to get out, workout, run, go to the beach, work on whatever hobby I've got and not have anyone distract me. So far things are good.

I am very happy, actually. The most I've been in my life.

I actually had this moment tonight....I was eating dinner at this restaurant called Cloud 9 in Vancouver....it's on the top floor (42nd) of a hotel downtown, and it slowly revolves so you get a view of the whole city. I'd always wanted to go there. I was enjoying the beautiful view, with my wonderful bf smiling at me from across the table, and I said to him "I'm having a perfect moment right now." He said "what do you mean?" I replied: "Everything right now feels so great. I realized in this moment how happy I am and how fortunate I've been in my life. If things never get better than this, then I'm very lucky and could never ask for anything more." I really don't know why it hit me just then, but it did. He was like "Wow!"

That's just how I felt right then, too. Wow. Life is good.

i think happiness tends to wax and wane. there are good times and there are not so good times.

No, I am not, for most of my life. I don't remember when I was completely happy or having katarsis... seriously. There are some fun moments, but that is not happiness.

There are always things to optimize. My life is very good. I also move b/t content & happy w/only occasional things I would call 'irritating'.

Ever since AmeriCorps, when I realized how much more fulfilling life could be, I've kept my mind open to stepping out of my comfort zones, and try to stay vigilant about improving/fixing anything in my life that I dislike.

Why tolerate when you can fix?

bluesummer

I agree with you on that, Fras. We should never become complacent and accept our mediochrity in certain areas. You can improve yourself...so why not try? Stepping out of your comfort zones really opens your eyes and reveals things to you not on;y about yourself, but other people and the world around you.

I want to be the best person I can be. I'm always working on myself in some way....I consider myself a life-long work in progress. I've done pretty well so far.....it's made me a much happier person.

I'm trying to rethink my outlook as of late.

Since I've moved into the new apartment, I've been very focused on obtaining material items. Some things are valid, like a bicycle to save on gas, and new struts for my car's bouncy suspension, but other things, such as an LCD tv so that I can play my videogames are not as valid, although the intent is to play my games on-line with my buddies from back home.

Me and Amy have been running around like crazy trying to get all these things, and yesterday I decided to relax and stop trying to rush out and get all these things. After all, my life has only improved exponentially since we moved into this apartment, why stress out over all that dumb shit?

i'm happy, well, happy as can be. it's not about what you want, or need, that can make you happy. but it's what you all ready have. and if you can find it, and then learn how to appreciate it, then you are miles ahead. i'm going to start a thread, (here we go again)... kind of related to this, and a friend i have.

Its true. Happiness is in your mind, you just think it:

Vash & RK, you should encourage your admins to mount posters of laughing ppl in the wards, like the one in the article. I'm thinking about wearing a smilie-face T-shirt when I give a talk...

Nice idea, indi, but I'm not sure how that would go over with families whose patients are dying.

How about a 'Happiness Room'? One dedicated specifically to lifting the spirits of those in need?

I think they already have that. It's called the break room. :D

There's no more Corona in the fridge.

I'll let you know when there's alcohol in the house, and I'll hold you to that.

I'm very aware I should be happy with all I have.

I'm not really happy at the moment though, all I want is going home... If only I wasn't so stubborn to refuse to give up so easily..
