Happiness is what all people wants. We learn to be happy, we earn to buy our personal stuffs and to be happy, we play to be happy, we dance to be happy, we sing to be happy, we work to be happy, and everything we can do can make us all happy, but for various personalities we tend to have various things that can make us happy, some may not be happy with something but some maybe happy with that something. So for me, when I'm with my family we have same things that we can be happy like playing songs together, singing, dancing, having tours to some areas here in Cebu, Phils., go to church, dine in together and pray unitedly. When I'm with my boyfriend, we have same things in common that we enjoy each other a lot, like playing at game zones the basketball game and shooting the game and bumped cars, eating out with our favorite foods that are less expensive, food trip, movie marathon, going to church, we also talk about our great days and anything as long as we are together we enjoy each others' company. When I'm with my friends of course there are also lots of things that we are having fun, we go to malls and have a window shopping, just window shopping.hehe, and we also have movie marathon and food trip, we also attend parties, chit chat with our school days and memorable past experiences at school, etc. When I'm with a stranger, it depends on their approach if they have good intentions or bad intentions, but if they have that good intention then why not give them a smile. How about you?What are the things that make you happy when you're with them?

what is the happiness? -happiness is present: the present is a gift, please take advantages of what life brings to you, don't worry about what happened yesterday or what will happen tomorrow. Starting from today and think about long-term goals in your life. - happiness is play: you are too busy with work and have no time for relaxation. spending time for television, music,computers... or you can be alone to sit alone and drop soul out the window, watch the clouds, trees... -happiness is toward: true happiness come from yourself and not be influenced by the words or the doing of others. true happiness cant sell or buy. Love, compassion, and courage are the things that don't need to buy because they already have in your heart. ...

I think that giving and receiving love in our lives is something that makes us all happy. We are also happy when we accomplish what we set out to do. When we get the things we wish for, we are all happy.

Wow, you have a happy life, as if you have no problems at all. Good for you! For me, what makes life is having peace within even if you seem to carry all the world's problems :), being content, and having Jesus in your life.

I believe that you are a devoted Catholic. I'm not that perfect Neelia, I also have encountered several problems in my life, I just don't count all of them in order to lessen my sadness and to add on to my happiness. I perceive life as a wonderful one, and full of challenges. Being content is one key to be happy, but sometimes it may make us a stagnant one, because we are just contented on what we have, some of us may not do something in order to rise a level from where they come from. Anyway, we have in common, that we walk with Jesus daily, and it's a good thing.

There are many things that make peoples happy. And I think if I will getting succeed in my life then I feel really happy. Because I have so many wishes in my life who I want to fulfill. But I don’t know when that day will come in my life. I think mostly peoples always feel happy because they always controlled on their wishes. And they always try to feel happy with their family.

yeah, in every success there is always a timing when that time of achievement may come. And I can see that you'll become happy when you succeed, when reach the level of self-actualization. I hope and pray that you will succeed in what you want in your life and be happy always with your family.

When I'm with my kids, it's the simple things that makes me happy. I just stood up from the couch where I had a bout of tickle-fight with my 4-year old. He put up a great fight but I still won! Little nonesense like this make me happy. And they don't seem to complain!

If my family is happy, I am happy though I have problems on my own. If I hear music, it makes me smile. If I’m about to do something crazy or something I have never done, it would put a smile on my face. If someone tells me I’m missed too.. there are a lot of things that makes me happy and smile. The type of person that laughs out of something small..

Hmm there are lots of things that makes me happy such as : being with my daughter and showering her with kisses and hugs. Eating my favorite food like pistachio or strawberry ice cream. Having my hair cut into a new style that fits me and makes me younger. Being with friends on a karaoke bar or just hanging around. Doing a good job at work makes me feel I have accomplished something. Teaching the kids at Sunday School and knowing that I am sharing my faith with them. Helping others even through my own small way. Going to the malls and window shopping. Trying a new sport. Traveling to places I have never been. Spending a "me" time in the spa to remove stress. Singing and dancing to my favorite song or dance hits. Praying and spending time with God even for just 30 minutes before I start my day. There are lots of things that make me happy be it superficial or something with sense. The important thing is that I enjoy them.

I believe you enjoyed life as well. You have various things that made you happy, and I'm glad too, that you're enjoying it.We are the people who views life, positively, and feel happy when we help someone else, and made them happy too. Happiness is in air. Lets share it to everybody.

All we have in common, seeing our Loved ones happy and healthy. Then why can't be happy anyway?, They mean so much to us, and so we are happy to be with them and as long they are happy too.

hi bingster!! i can see that you're a happy and jolly person :) good for you and for people like us who are always in the mood to smile and make others smile. as for me, i can say that being contented with what i have achieved in life is the main core why i am happy, i am contented with my family, with my love life as well, my work and my friends, this is all i need in life. in order to be happy , one must feel at peace in everything they do.. no grudges, insecurities, enemies and so on.. as long as you are living your life, do what you always wanted to do , not harming others, being a good citizen.. and stuff like this would be a great deal in finding true peace and happiness. a happy person must also welcome problems that come and go in their lives. one must accept that problems are made to be solved . :)

well, i believe that happiness is when you are feeling fulfillment. like you have nothing to wish for. in other words, you are contented with what you have. success is not by any means a main root of happiness it could just be one of the reasons of being happy. because you see, there are other people who are lonely even though they have a successful career. it might be because they have failed relationships. anyway im talking about true and permanent happiness. not just temporary one. because we can be happy by just being with our friends, boyfriends/girlfriends, play any games, go to parties, but on the other side we may feel lonely when we are alone already. when you really are happy, even though you are just all by yourself, you will never feel alone.

In the same way, you're right about success that not all of those who succeed are happy, some of them may lose their love ones already and its a sad thing. Its nice to know that you can be happy even though your just alone and you're happy because you are with your family, boyfriend and friends.Maybe its the feeling of happy itself that made us one.

Hello Bingster_6, I guess we would have to start with the definition of happiness. We are the ones who give meaning to it. It's very immaterial that can never be replaced by anyone or anything in this world. I can be happy when I am having a quiet moment alone under the moonlight. I can be happy sitting by the seashore listening to the soft breeze of the sea. And best of all, having my family together, with or without money may it not extravagant, a simple comfortable life will do. To a simple life with less complications is something that could make me say that indeed I am happy. ^_^

Hi starlight, indeed you're happy, you mean when you're alone with yourself you're happy too?, wow that's very rare, knowing that most people will be sad if they are all alone. And you also love staying in a solemn atmosphere where you can feel your own presence. Its really nice to feel the same way too, I must tried being along on the seashore with cold windy breeze. Simple life is the best way to be happy with no too much demands in life.
