I was just wondering that people likes to be happy and they likes that people they likes are happy. So I get this idea that mayby I could sell happiness. http://www.doesmoneymakeyouhappy.com/pages/shop.php Do you think that this is stupid idea, would you be happier if someone spend one dollar so you would be happier? Of course it is just the idea of happiness, but isn't happiness basicly just an idea, just a feeling.

aha this is a funny Idea i hope you make millions! If you make a bit of money can you reply and post about it right here so i can read and laugh! Not at you you are the businessman.. at your customers.. do you remember that guy who made millions selling parts of the moon to people? I think he beat you to the best idea but theres room for you in the fools market!

Sure I will reply how this is working. I haven't make any money out of it, but it make at least you happier, so I am selling working stuff ;) I thought that I maybe could make money out of this. It is just that one dollar is so low price that you can buy a good laugh to your friend for that. Making someone happier isn't fool thing to do! In my opinion supporting this kind of ideas for price of one dollar is just so humorous that even a supporter gets a good laugh and happiness.

Happiness is something all people would like to attain. As human being are so unique from each other, we have an individual definition of happiness and it is as varied as the sand of the sea. Indeed, happiness is so elusive to so many people as if the more you pursue it the more it goes away. Maybe there is something wrong with the way we view happiness or maybe our priorities are wrong or maybe the basis of our happiness is not really the right basis at all. In the Philippines, the word happiness is always associated with the word family. If the family is happy, then that is already happiness.Otherwise, it is so sad.

I have thought a lot about happiness in past two months when I have upkeep my blog. I know what you mean by family and happiness. You can't be happy if someone close to you is unhappy and you are happier if that someone is happy. In Finland we have this proverb "shared happiness is double happiness and shared sadness is half of sadness". It basicly means that you can't be so happy alone and you are not so sad if there is people around you.
