To me, happiness is feeling confident and being comfortable with myself. In this way I'm able to be more connected with others and all the aspects of my life that are important. So, how would you complete the sentence. :)

Hapiness is enjoying who I am each day , being able to do my best for me and the people I care for, take the time to look around me and find the most beautiful things. Sometimes it doesn't happen exactly like that.. but I"m happy when it does:)

Happiness is family, love, confidence, and hope.

You can be happy about things and then one day that changes and you're unhappy... happiness is not forever. At least that's how it appears to be for me. Happiness is....not as important as true joy. Joy is a deeper emotion that you possess because you are truly secure (confidence) in your beliefs about who is really in control of your life and the world. You have joy when you realise your true worth is independent of your level of perfection or other people's perceptions of you or your accomplishments or on anything that you can control but on God who created you and made you worthy. No one can take away that knowledge from you, therefore they cannot steal your joy. Each day there may be things that can cause us to be unhappy but if we have the fruit of the Spirit, that is "joy" our unhappiness will not affect our true joy.

A very beautiful answer, thank you. How very true that no one can take away the knowledge of who we are and where we came from, although sometimes it can be very hard to remember. Thanks again for the thought-provoking words.

Happiness is...a warm spring day in the garden. The birds are singing and the breeze is warm and soft. The earth is releasing its smell as I turn it preparing to plant my garden. Seed packets are near by and my children are ready to help and to have their portion to plant. This is what happiness is for me, the mornings when it happens I mean.

That sounds lovely. I too love nature and the sound of birds but I have to say that I'm not very good at growing things. Thanks for sharing this.
