There many ways to be happy in life but everyone will give different answers base on their own interest. Some would say that it is family that they think will be the most important of all for their happiness in life.Some may think that it is money which will give them happiness all the times. Some may think that health is the number one issue.Whatever it is, you are the only person who knows that. Your top 5 can be changed after a few years because of your life experience. Well at least for now, what is your top 5. Share with us?

There are so many reasons why I have a Happy life.. Sometimes I am also sad with my life because of so many problems and trials that I encounter through out these years, but it can't stop me from being happy with my life that i have now.. First, GOD LOVES ME!! Yes, I am happy because God loves me and He Never fails to do that.. He never disappoint me in His words, I really feel His love and I really appreciate the things that He done with my life. Even He gave me some struggles in my life, He never leave me though out my life. He is always there to protect and to guide me , despite that I sometimes forget about Him. That is one of the reasons why I am happy in my life.! Second, MY FATHER LOVES ME!! My father loves me at all. He never get tired in giving us our needs, He never get tired in raising us alone by his self ( without my mother, she passed away when I was in my childhood). Hen never get tired in working at day in night just for us to have a better future. That is my father.. Third, MY SISTER LOVES ME!! My sister loves me, she support me in my school needs, she strive hard to help in our family financial needs, She always have patience towards me, She always understand me even I am not in the position. She always correct me from my mistakes even I could be hurt. Fourth, MY GIRLFRIEND LOVES ME!! My girlfriend love me despite I am a hot tempered person. She always understand me and my needs, but sometimes she can't take it anymore. BUT she still love me. We are now in the 2nd year of our relationship. I hope that we can stay longer and to have a better future someday.. Hope so.. Fifth, MY FRIENDS LOVES ME!! My friends love me even sometimes I am not good to them, sometimes I am not joining them in some discussions, sometimes I don't like to be with them.. Sometimes I want to be alone, BUT behind that "sometimes" they never leaves me. They always encourage me to enjoy life and to have a gathering with them. They always assist me in all things.

Hey, since you already have so many love, you surely will be happy enough. You are just be so blessed and most important of all , you knows how to appreciate God's love while some people don't.I am in a situation that I won't be happy for a long time and I hope it will be over as soon as possible. I don't know when this situation will be over but I will keep on asking god to help me through my prayer as well. I also have experience in disappointed God for not obey His word and maybe my unhappiness for a long time is a result of that. I do believe that God will forgive me according to 1 John 1:9.However, faith and on going struggle has always been a battle in my life for the past few years. I really longing for a way out but God is silent. what can I do now? I can just keep on waiting for Him and hope that someone will pray for me.Many people will promise to pray for me but They never did. Many people would pray for me but they just don't know the art of Warfare prayer and seek for God's guidance on how to pray for me.Well , I know that I can't expect too much from others , so I keep going forward and hopefully my deliverance will come soon. Anyway, it is good to see you enjoy so much love from different people and I hope that you can remain happy through out your life with a positive attitude towards everybody and always have faith in God. God bless you and happy mylot.

There is only one answer~ I want to keep myself happy because it will make everyone happy~ When everyone feel happy, all those things money, friends, stuff, favorite things and all those things will come and get related with ourself.I just think that if I am happy everything surround me will be positives and that is great huh? So I should make sure myself is happy always~

haha...very nice topic Anyways, here's my five top of my list in terms of happiness. 1st:HEALTH---and when i say health,it does not only refer to physical aspect.It also implies with a healthy relation to my family,but of course thats next to Him up above. 2nd:MONEY---in order to have a descent life,with no further ado. 3rd:FAMILY--i meant...a whole family,,my very own family (dad,mom,kids)its just next to money because, i dont think we can achieve happiness at home with our stomach aching.I am just being honest and practical..hates hypocrite! 4th:INCOME--its very one important thing in this life.if we have good income,then we have enough sources. and last but not the least.... 5th:ACQUIRED LOVE--from those people i care about.

The one and only I can think is my family. I can't think that others is worth to keep me happy as all other things if they are to much they will influenced me in bad ways and my family too. So for now I think my family is the reason for me to keep me happy for life.

Have enough money to buy luxury things and not be poor or starving, or anything like that. 3. Lots of food. I can't live without it. 4. Water. You got to love water. 5. Happy family.

My top five things in life that make or would make me happy: 1. Peace from the past 2. Love of those around me now and those who left me 3. faith to get through the trying times in life 4. Money- just enough to live comfortably 5. hope for a better day. This is something I am trying to achieve simply because life is rough. Not all of us are able to achieve the financial wellbeing others do so we have to realize what makes us truly happy in this day and age. And when it boils down to it. It is true money cannot truly buy you happiness. Only our essential values can do this. And this is something we have to come into on our own journies. And our core essntial values are what make us who we are, and they are different for everyone.

The secret to true happiness lies within oneself. I believe it to be different for every single person. Personally, I believe the key to happiness is love. Not just the love of a partner, but parental love and motherly love, and sisterly love, and the love we share for the rest of our family and friends. Yes, money could certainly help. But what then, would we do with the money? Spend it on loved ones, I'm sure. I also have gotten to the point in my life, now after becoming a mother, that it's not just about family either. It's about finding yourself and who you truly are deep inside, and then following your heart. I have recently come to the revelation that I really need to focus on establishing a career in Social Services or Ccounseling of some type. I have a deep-seeded desire to care and help others in need. I cannot deal with blood and all that medical stuff, so I will be continuing to pursue a degree in a "helping" type field. Unique to each of us, is that which will make us happy.For some, money truly is their deepest desire and that's just fine, too. Money is certainly helpful in achieving happiness. I believe, however, the only way to find true happiness is to look within oneself! :-)

This hasn't happened to me lately, but generally, sometimes a great feeling overcomes me. The other things to keep me happy in life are the smile of a baby's face or a baby at play, seeing a family member (or maybe even a stranger) succeed in something that made them struggle, me helping someone to succeed, seeing that God has helped someone get out of their rut, succeeding at something that has given me problems.
