    CHOICES CHOICES CHOICES

    Having CHOICES to decide WHAT I WANT TO DO, the people I WANT TO BE AROUND, creating MY OWN TIME FOR MYSELF is very important to me so that I can follow my desires and dreams allowing me to 'create (writing/designing/chilling out etc:)

    In my life, the most important factor is, to create incomes, therefore, I am able to spend free time doing as I please, hopefully, with money in my pocket to do the things I want to with whomever I want to do them with.

    The ability to spend time seeing who ever I want to see, (friends/relationships/family) without having to answer to anybody for my doings because my doings are not malicious at all.

    So all in all, TIME IS MOST VALUABLE, sharing time with those who I chose to be around and spending time to be on my own doing whatever I want.

    Regards Dale

    My husband and I are in our mid + 60's and we live on 5 acres in the country.  We spend most of our time working around our home and gardens and even have a 2 1/2 acre secret garden that we keep up with paths that wander here and there.
    Neither of us are people who need a lot of stuff or fluff in our lives.  What means the most to us is that our kids and grand kids and great grand are all healthy...we're healthy...we all have most of what we want and everything we need and we all have a passion for living, loving and helping...giving us all a peace that passeth all understanding......It really is true..."There's so much more to life...than having everything"

    Right this very moment, the happiest thing in my life is the steaming mug  of coffee that I am drinking as i check my email and Hubpages and watch the sun come up.  Every cell in my body says thank you and I just know this is going to be a wonderful day.

    A question the answer to which will very from person to person. I don't seek my happiness in things that have external manifestation like wealth, power, position or social status, although they have their own importance in one's life. By the grace of Almighty, I possess all of these to a reasonable degree. But I am not unduly attached to them so that they will not make me unhappy if I don't have any one of them. if I don't have any of them, I will not have the convenience they provide and nothing more.

    I seek happiness in inner-self or soul.

    Actual I have two simultaneous thoughts that suit that question, Cristale. And, thank you for providing the cause for those thoughts! The affect will lead toward an effect of not consequence, yet more so of delight.

    1) I am recycling a hub into two hubs.
    One, about writing a Love letter or Love poem with cautions too
    Two, a tribute to an inspirational poet, author, photographer, and more who is a Dearest Best Friend. Titled A Valentine Poem for a Poet of Valentines

    2) I am headed into the kitchen for my electronic cigarette (wink to some and a peace pipe to others - smile)

    Happiness depends on the way you think abut your life and you have no greed for any materialistic thing.. Life becomes smooth when you feel your responsibility as a father, mother, brother and life partner and commit yourself into it without any condition. Simultaneously enjoying every moment with your loved one adds sweetest feeling in life and thus  in my view, this  is the purest definition of happiness

    to be able to keep on keeping on... At the very moment, I'm happy with the green outside my window, my blue and white stripped waffle-weave curtains that make the room feel fresh and clean, the 50 year old teapot that my childhood friend gave me sitting at the top of my desk, the scar on my face that's healing from the surgery I thought would be the bad kind of cancer, but wasn't,  and the hope that my daughter might still have time to join us afternoon because it's always fun when "the kids" are around. In general, however, the high I get during this time of my life when we struggle to pay the bills and are deeply in debt, is when someone says they like an essay I wrote or if a learning game I created for our website gets lots of hits or when one of the students I tutor has that light in his or her eye that tells me I gave them something that day that they didn't have before. I guess while trying to answer this great question, the conclusion I've come to is that I feel happiest when I feel useful - when I feel that something I might have said or written may have made a difference.  That's the best feeling in the world.

    I'm not too impressed by a quote from someone who couldn't manage to hang in through whatever it was he was dealing with it, or by the apparent belief that intelligence must equal unhappiness.

    The world is full of people who have clinical depression for no apparent reason and/or circumstances/"issues" that could cause someone to become depressed.  People who are intelligent enough to know how to stay strong address whatever depression they have, sometimes get out of it, but sometimes must figure out ways to manage living with it (even if they must live unhappily with it).

    There's a lot about my life that I'm happy about, but there's a whole lot about that I'm not at all happy about.   In view of the quote that comes with this question, though, I suppose the one thing that comes to mind for me is that I'm happy I AM intelligent enough and strong enough to have been able to figure out how to cope, how to stay strong, how to keep my family strong, and how to generally "stay the me I've always been" in spite of the fact that I'm always kind of fighting off at least a few signs of depression.

    It's such a sad thing that so many people in the world have come to believe that intelligent people can't be happy.  Anyone who believes that should look up "The Terman Studies", which followed "gifted" children into adulthood and showed how well adjusted a large percentage of them were.  It's because of the misconception that a happy person can't possibly be an intelligent one that so many insecure people are afraid to even allow themselves to be happy, or appear happy to anyone else.  Equally bad, it's that belief that makes a lot of miserable people have too little respect for people who are clever at coping.

    Mainly because happiness can be such a serious subject, I can't resist to add the following:   To quote a line from "Happiness Is" (from "You're A Good Man Charlie Brown"), "Happiness is anything and anyone at all that's loved by you."  (As you can see, I have a problem keeping check on my tendency to let my corny side be on display.   smile  ).

    (Maybe it's not being less intelligent that makes people unhappy/happy.  Maybe it's not being capable of knowing how, who and what to love beyond our own interests, sources of dissatisfaction, and ego?)

      tsmogposted 5 years agoin reply to this

      I am both agreeing and empathetic. Of not claim of intelligence other than solving problems through more inspiration than thinking. I too feel happiness is more to do with mindset than circumstance or happenstance.

    I had an epiphany - I had mastered my fear and braved the unknown, and it was not so terrifying after all. I realise now that what I had been fearful of was of the unknown, of what my imagination had led me to believe, of the wild images conjured up by my processing of the connotations associated with bullies.
