      1. Last night, my roommate made it a point to come out of his bedroom and tell me the meal I made was awesome. That made me really happy.

      2. It makes me really happy when I'm at the market and one of the residents from where I used to work recognizes me and gives me a hug. This makes me really happy.

      3. It makes me really happy when both of my cats curl up next to me on the couch and purr without fighting each other. This makes me really happy.

      1. when i try to remember
      2. when i try to forget
      3. when some asks me to forget or remember

      these 3 things take a lot of time, and makes me happy.

      I was happy throughout my early childhood, up until about age nine.

      I was happy again as a grad student at Rice University, and that didn't end until about a year after I got my degree.

      And I am happy now.

      By this, I don't mean that I didn't have happy moments during my unhappy periods. Of course, I did. But the happy times aren't isolated moments. They are the long periods of time when our basic needs are met and we have hope for the future.

      * Today when my rather shy 14 year old son came home from high school and told me what a great day he had and why.

    I was happy and confused the day of my first marriage. But very, very happy. However, when my two children were born, I couldn't see to count their fingers and toes (the nurse and Dr. told me to do it) because I was crying tears of joy.

    I wrote a waltz for my daughter for her 5th birthday. I played it for her and she and my son (2 at the time) danced around the room. It has been one of the sustaining memories and reasons for me to hang on and keep going despite any setbacks. I'm working with a friend to make a music video of it. Hope to post the link and write a hub about it sometime soon.

    Life can be beautiful.

    Modern culture has made entirely too much of this 'bolt of sunshine up the rear-end' "be happy!" crap.

    If you were to ask me this one or two year ago, I would have said absolutely not!

    But, after much meditation and soul searching, I realized that it wasn't all about me.

    I started to focus on others and their needs.
    This took the load off of focusing on myself so much!

    Giving and doing for others boost your self-esteem.

    After working on my Dad's Dairy Farm for free for the last six months, I have really enjoyed my time with my family as well as they appreciate me more!

    I feel good about doing things for others; so therefore I am happy.

      That is really difficult for me to describe my happiest moments pooja. But I am happy that you have asked this.
      For me happiness is only a comparative state of mind. There is no definite situation or definite things which might make someone happy. The same situation which made you happy may bore you someday also.
      I think that my happy moments are countless! If I name someone it will be discrimination for others.

      Thank you Dee Dee MonSherie for your comment. I really am interested seeing others happy. If GOD privileged me to ask for anything I would ask for the destruction of haterate, ego and selfishness which are destroying the happiness from this world. That is really difficult for me to describe my happiest moments pooja. But I am happy that you have asked this.
      For me happiness is only a comparative state of mind. There is no definite situation or definite things which might make someone happy. The same situation which made you happy may bore you someday also.
      I think that my happy moments are countless! If I name someone it will be discrimination for others.
      You may read my hub "What makes me happy" and "Natural healing through happiness"
      Thanks again for responding!

    Hey,

    I like this topic, It's a great question. But essentially what is happiness? I think you can be happy when you go beyond being sad over something or being happy about something else. To make it more clearer, if you quit being happy for the usual reasons and be sincere with yourself and know yourself better you could live a better life. For example I'm not happy if I have lots of money to spend, but society teaches us that it's a good reason to smile...not for me, I'm not happy when a criminal is caught I'm sad that he exists...

    I consider happiness like beauty...It's in the eye of the beholder. I like to laugh as much as I can, and I never went to bed without laughing at least 3 time in one day so, am I happy? Perhaps, or it's just easier to get over things...I feel good that's what counts, it's hard to be truly happy I'm not wise enough to comprehend what true happiness is...But to answer your question:

    1.Had my first kiss and fell in love.
    2.A few Christmas gifts in different years.
    3.Found a beautiful girl and I'm still in love with her.

    Peace

      All days are not equal for us. But think in the way the little girl suggested as follows:


      Once I was reading about a man who got a letter from his teen ager daughter. She wrote about a series of bad news like:
      “I am leaving home with a man.
      I know you wouldn’t give me permission if you knew that the man’s age is equal to that of yours!
      But you don’t worry he is a nice person. His wife is also very nice and accepted me.
      His 7 children are also very nice and they all love me.
      Although my husband is a poor man but I know I can give him proper support.
      I would resume my office as soon as I got my broken leg become ok.
      And expect my husband would also be able to work again once he is cured from AID.”
      It was enough to break the man’s heart but then he suddenly saw the last line. It was:
      “All those could have been happened, but thank GOD it’s not so bad. Only I have been failed in the class. So don’t be shocked, just cheer up!”

    3. The moment I found out 'It's a Girl', when I was pregnant with my daughter.

      The coffee I'm having right now is perfect, so I'll be superficially happy after I have a second cup.  I did just get some really nice pink and yellow tulips - so for now (as far as "superficially happy" goes), they'll do until I get that second cup of coffee.   As far as "deep down", important kind of happy goes, I'm happy.  It's the between-superficial and deep-down I'm not all thrilled about.   hmm

        Aya Katzposted 7 years ago in reply to this

        Lisa, the concept I am obsessing about today is "gradience". Is your idea of "superficial happiness" a gradient feature or a discrete (yes/no) type of distinction? Can you be a little bit happy or is it all or nothing?

        1. cupid51 profile image47
          cupid51posted 6 years ago in reply to this

          Thanks Aya Katz for responding to this thread. Although you have asked the question to Lisa, I like to tell my view on that.
          In my opinion happiness is a comparative state of mind. how much happy you are now that depends on how much unhappy or bored you were in your previous state.

          1. Aya Katz profile image87
            Aya Katzposted 6 years ago in reply to this

            Thanks, Cupid51. There certainly are aspects of happiness that are comparative. For instance, how happy an ice cream cone makes you may depend to some extent on how often you get to have ice cream. This is value created by external supply and demand.

            However, the internal experience of happiness can be gradient or not. I think to some extent, it depends on the individual. We don't all have the same internal experiences.

            But I guess you were saying that for you it is gradient...?

        Thank you Lisa for your response. Some great man (I don't remember his name right now) said that don't think about a long future. just think of present, decide what to do now and try to be happy for the present moment.

        I don't know whether you are that great man!
