A kitchen full of food.
A car tank full of gas.
Money to pay the rent.
A hub that gets daily traffic.
What say you?
Happiness is enjoying your life today because you are not promised tomorrow.
Cup of coffee and sitting on the couch with my wife and puppies. Nothing better.
According to empirical data surveyed by Weiten, Lloyd, Dunn, and Hammer (2009), happiness depends mostly on the following factors:
1. Factors relatively unimportant in determining our general happiness: money, age, gender, parenthood, intelligence, and physical attractiveness.
2. Somewhat important: health, social activity, and religion.
3. Very important: Love and intimate relationships, work, genetics. and personality.
Being able to literally breathe and have good health. (mine is going fast)
To see others happy
To make others smile
That's what makes me happy. If I can make someone else happy that is my happiness and if I can make at least one person a day smile then I've done my job for the day.
I keep plugging away on that hub thing. Haven't had a success in a long time though. Starting to get somewhat perturbed about that...
Why stop at one hub that generates money? I'd like ALL of my hubs to generate money! Okay maybe gettin a little greedy. But you aim for the sky and hit the ceiling, right?
I do indeed keep aiming for the sky. Problem is I think the Adwords Tool keeps giving me fake ammunition.
So it is more like a hub that gets daily traffic and generates enough money to pay rent, fill the car with gas, and stuff the kitchen with food.
I've done the math as to how many more hubs I'd have to write to hopefully accomplish that. The answer was disconcerting to say the least.
I'd be happy with gas money and the occasional box of hot wings.
Me and my Doritos and root beer are happy as we speak.
Eating chocolate without gaining weight
Being hugged by my grandchildren
Reaching 400,000 views (which I just did)
Sitting by a cozy warm fire on a very cold night
Keep your spirit up, you are much better than me - I haven't even got my Adsense approved.
Eating uni sushi everday instead once a week.
Having unlimited amounts of ca$h at my disposal.
Being forever preternaturally youthful without invasive surgery.
Having 1 million views on HubPages.
Having a very large apartment with 2 walk-in closets for ALL my clothes........
In ESSENCE, I want it ALL...........
And a Hubscore of 100............
A house with enough room for a lot of kids.
Having the funds to adopt a lot of kids.
Hearing on the news that the bad guys have been caught.
"So it is more like a hub that gets daily traffic and generates enough money to pay rent, fill the car with gas, and stuff the kitchen with food" -- I couldn't agree more ClusterCritter LOL!
Happiness, right now, is..........
my prodigal kitty coming back home.
She's sweet, but sometimes mean.
But she was gone for 3 days, and I'm so happy to see her!
Discovering new keywords in Google Trends. Found 3 or 4 of them.
....actually getting compensated nicely for what you write. I've been here 3 years come this summer and I still average $10 a month or so. A "zazzle" ad on everything. Love the connections here, just disappointed in the work that goes in which reaps little benefit. And, I am a patient person. So, I would say that for today, happiness belongs to people in Boston, we finally are have a legitimate spring day in the Midwest, and I'm grateful I have my health. It's a cha-cha day!
Holding a newborn baby
Being his/her Grandma!
Taking a long, slow walk, on a beautiful, breezy day
An entire day to yourself, to do whatever you choose.
The "Full Treatment" at a Day Spa.
Loving and being loved right back
Triple scoop Ice Cream Cones
A mayo, turkey, cheese, mustard sandwich. With a root beer chaser. And I'm dedicating this particular sandwich to Randy.
A loving family
Being on HP
Friends on HP and Google+
Making more money on HP
Happiness is ReinXeed doing a cover of the "Amazing Horse" song.
If happiness is all the above, then one just needs one item, MONEY.
Happiness is more than that. It is a state of mind. Money no doubt will greatly contribute to one's happiness, but money foolishly used to seek happiness will ultimately lead one to despair and sorrow.
I have just written a hub dedicated to my son on the subject of happiness.
Happiness is this link:
Happiness is being content of what you have and who you are
I like Pauls answer. I watched this documentary on Netflix a few months ago. It's great.
Happiness is being in perfect health, having an above average to genius level IQ, and a high sense of self. If one has these components, HE/SHE can achieve what he/she set his/her mind to achieve.
What about someone with downs whose understanding is limited. Or someone with cancer who has just learned to live life to the fullest b/c they realize there is more to life than the comp?
Hrm...I only have 1 out of 3.
33% is a hell of a failing grade.
Happiness is when you get to the stage where you stop thinking that everything everybody says about you is always right
