    Think about it. Can you say you are truly happy? Is there something you feel is missing in your life? Love, money,family???? Is there really a true happy person out there with no worries. Lets see!!!!!

      What is happines ? Each of us understands it differently . It's really hard to say you are 100% happy but it's all about the small things that bring your everyday life joy . You have to find these and stick to them so that you can go on with any problem .

        I agree small things can bring happiness but with the big things we are elated!

        Happiness in my own opinion is the contentment of once feelings and desire that cause the person to be happy.

      Though most people are not 100% happy, but we have about few percent of people that claims to be. I believe that the control to our happiness is in our hand. You and i can make ourselves happy if we want to.

      I'm not happy now.  But I believe that happiness comes from within (seriously).  I could have the perfect life, but still be unhappy.  When you love and believe in yourself, you will be happy.  I've been there before.

    I can honestly say with every ounce of my being that I am truly happy. I have an amazing husband, 3 beautiful children, great family and friends.  I always say that unhappiness lies within comparison (a quote I picked up from somewhere and love). Also, if you are constantly wanting more and not appreciating or being satisfied with what you have, this causes unhappiness as well. Happiness is an internal mind set. A truly happy person can find happiness in anything. Your partner, your money, your family, your house, none of these can make you happy. Happiness comes from within. When I was teaching, there was a song I loved, "Accentuate the Positive, Eliminate the Negative"!!!  Being a happy person draws more positive energy to you.

    I am happy. The only thing I would to have more is : Time. Time to read, write, learn. But  appreciate what we have is one of the secrets of happiness!

    I've come to the belief that I am happy most of the time.   I've also come to realize that I am subject to those bio-rhythyms whereby I'm aware now, when I'm a little down, that it won't last.   My 'default' is Happiness, and I return to it fairly quickly.   

    I hope you do, too.

    The definition of happiness?  Maybe a bit subjective, however whatever your views are it's important to know what makes you happy.  Once you know then live your life accordingly and dont hurt anybody.

    Me, I'm happy with myself but will not be satisfied until I reach my goals!!!

    Yes I am happy. I agree with the other hubbers about how we find happiness...by focusing on what we are grateful for. If time is a problem, find ways to rearrange your schedule for doing more of what you love, and be firm with those who have a propensity toward stepping on that.

    The comparison thing is important, too. My mother has a habit of comparing my lifer to others' to point out how my lifestyle lacks in comparison. I disagree. I wrote a book and it has just been released for purchased (My newest hub, "The Adventure of Writing a Book" details that journey). I am euphoric. But part of the success of the book will depend on people willing to buy it (if you love gardening, there is a link to a means for purchasing it at the end of the aforementioned hub). My husband supported me and my friends now encourage me to go out there and promote myself. I just ordered some business cards to promote it, and as soon as they arrive, I will be talking to managers to bookstores.

    It's not just the book, though. There is much in my life that I love to do, and I find ways to do them. I totally love my daughter, and make sure I play with her a while every day. She is my "miracle child" and is so precious!

    Hope all of you hubbers find happiness in your everyday lives. It's the best way. Happy holidays and happy new year!

    I'm single and I am happy.

    If things doesn't seem to go my way, I always believe that there must be a good reason for it. God is watching us.

    Jacob's son Joseph's "death" brought so much grief to the father, but God has a great plan for Joseph. God's plan was known after several long years and brought the family together and saved them.

    Yes, I'm happy - I'm in control of my life, rather than my life being in control of me, and I'm happy with it. 

    Being happy with my life doesn't mean there aren't some things from my past that I would rather weren't there, or choose to change if I could.  Being happy doesn't mean I don't still want some things that I may never have.  Being happy doesn't mean I have everything I could ever want - Being happy is a state of mind that I choose to reveal to the world around me.

    And, just because I'm happy right now, doesn't mean I'll be happy every moment for the rest of my life.  I accept that there will be times when I'll be full of despair, or sadness, or anger, or pain, or whatever.  But, I'll choose to return to being happy because what's the point in not being happy overall?

    Yes.  There are truly happy people.  Sometimes, though, being truly happy can't mean "no worries", because the things that make some of us happy are also things that make us worry.  (Like having children who are old enough to either be out being teenagers, or else old enough to be living on their own and having their own challenges.)  There's "deeply happy" and then there's "fun happy" (which isn't likely to be something we have all the time).  Then there's "deliriously happy" (which, if we were always in that state, would likely be kind of goofy under a lot of circumstances  lol ).  There's also "perfectly happy", which a lot of people are a good part of the time.

    I've had lots of "perfectly happy" AND "deeply happy".  These days - I'd say I'm more "deeply happy", because there are some things in my life that need to be ironed out before I'll be "perfectly happy" again.

    I wouldn't say I don't have any worries, I'd be lying if I did, but I'm very happy with my life as it is now. I have just about everything I want, a loving husband and daughter, a vehicle that runs, a home to live in, food on the table etc. All my needs are met. I can do without those things I "want" as long as I have my family, a home, and enough food to feed the family. Being madly in love with my hubby makes everything that much better! big_smile

      I think it is important to hold onto the memory of happiness when trying to haul yourself out of a slump. I remember true happiness. Not there today and may never be again. I'm learning for the first time that there's such a thing as a sadness that you simply can't shift. I'm still happy on many levels, and that's a good thing.

      I feel sorry for people who never have the chance to know true happiness.

        I agree that happiness is a choice, heatherdos. Sometimes we have to work on ourselves a bit to get there, but it is a choice nonetheless.

      Yes, i am. I will not say i am ecstatically happy all the time but I can say I am generally content. There are still the once in a while I got the blues days but overall, i'd say i am happy and content.I don't sweat a lot of stuff and i don't take life seriously. That  's probably the reason why I feel content and happy most of the time.

      The reason I am not happy is because I am mourning a loss. But I must admit that I was happy before it happened and I will be happy again.
      Happiness is not a condition on whether or not you have money, love or family. The only love that can bring you happiness is love of self. When you love yourself and are satisfied with the life you have, even if you are broke or alone (without a spouse) than you can truly say you are happy.
