Many times have I thought:"I just want to be happy“ I want to find the key to happiness, and how we can be happier. and it's been the subject of numerius TV shows, movies and motivational seminars. In my opinion, thanks for God, cherish everyday and friendship, smiles always on face when trouble or boring things bother you etc.

i think happiness is a state of mind, if you feel and think you are happy and have made the most out of what you have with you, you will be happy and will not be bothered by petty things that could make you think otherwise. just feel that you are happy with what you have and you shall be happy.

Happiness can be achieved if you 're satisfied and contented with what you have. You wouldnt be asking for more and will just take life lightly and enjoy every minute of the day.. Good luck !

There's a Chinese saying - "Happiness lies in contentment". If you feel contented, if you appreciate what you are having now, then you'll be happy. People always feel unhappy because they think there are "not enough" for them. "Greed" is the major cause of being unhappy. When I feel a bit down or unhappy, I just always remind myself this - appreciate. Hope we'll be happy all the time! I believe there'll be one day I can make it....

i think beeing happy is a tough task , i have seen some people having the ability to laugh always but the problem is they became very sensative. if you enjoy what you are doing and do acordingly to your conscience then happines will come automatically.

Happiness is what you make of it. I just cherish every day. Life is so short. And you never know when it will end. I have it good compared to some other people. So, I just appreciate what I have. This helps me to stay happy. :)
