    Are you happy?

    Considering everything, on average, are you happy?

    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.
    Relax... I'll need some information first. Just the basic facts - can you show me where it hurts?

    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.

    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.
    Don't expect anything.

    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'.
    Second thoughts can generally be amended with judicious action; injudicious actions can seldom be recovered with second thoughts.

    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?

    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.
