      "A happy life is merely a string of happy moments." I think we should focus more on the happy moments and let the rest of our life take care of itself. Blessed :-) There's a happy moment right there.

      Catchpa: snoglick - now that gave me another happy moment! Two happy moments in a matter of minutes.

      Happiness is a belief about yourself and the outside world. You can be doing something you normally experience as pleasurable but not be happy!
