    Are you happy?

    Happiness is such a simple, natural concept and yet, it seems so hard fro the average person to attain. Most of us are really bad at being happy.

    I'm happier than a horny hillbilly at a family reunion.
    I'm happier than a possum in a pile of sh**.
    I'm happier than a sea otter on its back.
    So yeah, I suppose I am "happy."

    There is no fixed formula for happiness. But I have a method, which is, I trust my inner impulses. I follow them and be happy.

    LOL  I love how you present this, Beata, "most of us are really bad at being happy."  That strikes me as funny because I would tend to agree with you.  Great question. 

    Reading the responses here, KeithJK has a funny one, haha.

    It's all a matter of perspective and those who are the happiest tend to accept who they are and the life they are living.   Good question.

    Yes I'm happy who wouldn't be with such great friends around on Hubpages.
    Also I'm happy with my lot in general, just don't expect too much in life and take each day as it comes, Yes I'm happy.
    Good question.
