I am a 41 year old, stay at home mom to the sweetest almost 3 yr old little boy who I thought I would never be able to have. Three years ago we conceived after over tens years of believing that we never could. I believe that everything I have ever done in my life was in some way preparing me for this time in my life. I have had a good career, I have traveled, I have been able to put away some money and now I am blessed to be able to stay home with my child and experience each day of his life with him. I am very happy!!! Would I change a few things? Sure, I believe that it is not healthy to ever become to comfortable and satified with things as that could lead to no longer learning and growing. I have a wonderful husband who loves me very much, a son who is a product of that love and a life that we are both very proud to be able to provide for our son. Happiness indeed.

I am not a person with great ambition, at least right now. so happiness to me is quite simple. Every morning,when I wake up, usually I do not have a pressing task,I live a leisure and slow paced life. to some extent, I am lazy.I hope I have time to look up into the sky at night and wonder what these twinkling stars are really like as what I often did in my childhood;I hope I have time to listen to the songs of the birds perching in the trees of the forests,and I hope I have time to view the scenery on my way to work,and I hope ......Hehehe....so many hopes. Most often, I said to my self; No news is good news. Cos I know if there is no news, those people I do care are OK.I do not expect many pleasant surprises, even I like to hear good news from my friends. I am a easy pleased person.:) .I aften remind myself the more I expect, The more I will be disappointed.so I do not expect a lot.lol... I can say I am contented right now. feel happy? frankly speaking,I do not know.

Happiness is satisfaction of ones individual mind. Without satisfaction none cannot say I am happy because dissatisfaction always makes one unhappy. I feel happy always as I have no big want and I do not have ambition beyond my ability so I am am always happy. Happiness and saddness both are parts of our life just like a side of coin. After sorrow happines come if we can try to get relief from sorrows and after happiness sorrow come if we cannot handle happiness right way.
