Hi UnderSea, Being happy takes a lot of things but for me the only key to happiness is contentment. If some people want more then there will a lot of disappointment if they will not get the things they desire. If you are contented in what you have then you will be happy, But still you have to aspire on things but not to the extent of giving all your effort to have it, failures can make anybody un happy so avoid desiring or dreaming just work on it, live a simple life anf most important enjoy you life with God's presence. money cannot buy happiness, so if you are happy cherished that moment. Have a simple and contented life. Thanks, Can we be friend, please add me, God Bless.

Thanks for your reply, I guess a lot of us are struggling with expectations in life, there for, we set themselves for disappointments. I for one find myself stuck with petty things in life and dwell on them, sometimes I have to remind myself not to miss the big picture and realize how lucky and fortunate I really am. Hopefully it will come with age and knowledge. Thanks again~!

I think the key to my happiness would be success. I would love to be successful in life and get where I want to be in life. That would make me very happy.

Hey, Well I think that to actually be happy would require me to firstly have a good job, and have good friends too. At the moment I don't really have any good friends, if any, at the moment. They can't even keep promises. Make sure you have a good day, God bless and Happy Lotting!!

happiness for me is my kids, thats real! i mean seeing them that they are okay, healthy, and i give the simple things that they need, iam very happy already. and my only prayer to God is give me more blessings so that i can raise them well, since iam a single mother. and God didnt disappoint me really, His really good and the savior all the time.
