    What is the answer for your happiness? Or what answer can work for your love ones or for your gross national product of happiness?

    I look for the worst downsides and best upsides first. The rest, just works itself out.

    Downsides - Most pet pev is mostly, people don't like their work. Then the ABCs of life. New Cancers, heart and lung diseases, stroke, Alzheimer's, diabetes, and suicides have been rising. ..First time in modern history life expectancy is declining in the U.S.
    Notice 70% of world population has only 3% of the world's wealth. That makes a great deal of suffering from these greedy bastards that make up only 1% who own most everything.

    Upsides - I have thrived most of my life by solving problems with health and have no regrets . Yet always can improve. Best thing is to change myself first, let assholes be assholes. What works for me is being an optimist, attitude of gratitude and being my own best leader in the world. Controling my own destiny rather slheeping to phony leaders who don't care if you or me live or die. My priority, put my life in order and for my circle of love ones. Love ones have also used this one method and love it. It helps alot in understanding each other.

    These are means to an end the way I want to feel like, from top to bottom in order of priorities.
    1.Love
    2.Health
    3.Freedom
    4.Security
    5.Fun or joy
    6.Intimacy
    7.Flexible
    8.Passion
    9.Successful
    10.Self empowerment...

    Try your own list of priorities in your life. Would be exciting to hear your results.

      As a 7 year old I decreed I want to be as free as a deer which included going into Canada and cross into the U.S of Mexico without money. At 31 I began to fulfill that by crossing into Canada June 1, 1978 and back across the U.S of America to crossed into Mexico November 1, '78 only to be deported back to the USA February 9, 1980 from Belize. I traveled those places on foot unless someone offered me a ride and eating what I found growing or by found or given money and any other things people thought I needed.

      Back in the USA I wanted to study animals and found a cattle farmer in Decorah, Iowa with both Beef and Dairy cattle that I worked for to reveal how man are/were conditioned to need coverings. So in NYC from May, 1981 until the end of January '84 I transitioned into the NatureBoy and began transversing the US until I had gone through all except Main, New Hampshire, Rhode Island and Delaware most of twice or more for most.

      Therefore, having those cattle to teach me what I needed to know being free is the answers of my having fulfilled my greatest desire makes me most satisfied with the life I now live.

        There is only one single thing you need to know in life. That one thing is what you have to figure out.

          Happiness is subjective for every individual. My envision is layed out on my priority list. What makes one person happy won't necessarily make another one feel the same. Too much stuff out there is just happyass BS. There are essentials like.

          One...most importantly being our health, physical, mental and emotional well being.

          Two. what we can forget negatively or your chances of happiness dwindles.

          Surviving is not living, thriving is. Anyone of these other essential can unbalance your happiness if done poorly. Or how you solves these problems unsure happiness. Like financially, intellectually, realationships, spiritual, and physical. Money being the least important for happiness, Certainly not having enough can make you unhappy too.

          Come on!!!! What makes you really happy? A smile, Your dog, a BJ or Jesus?

            You are correct, happiness is subjective and therefore a judgmental adjective and I don't use them since they are the foundation upon which this world is built, so I don't use them because I have been called out of it.

              More essentials like happiness bits is what I share. Like my daughter finds fun her top priority means to an end. In which I have incorporated into my list. I once was too serious about life, today I'm not so serious about life and having alot more fun and joy.

                My concept of serious is fulfilling and I'm fulfilling my life as completely as I comprehend at this point in my life.

                I think we are saying the same thing, it's only that I refuse to use judgmental adjectives.

                  I would think of them as guildlines and sharing rather than adjective goals.
