No, not quite yet.. I am getting some things worked out, and even though I am not overly happy just yet, I know it will get better if I put some effort into restructuring my life. That means, cultivating new friendships, being more open and caring about others, and appreciating the small gifts that life has to offer. Like a fresh snowfall, a sunset, or an unexpected smile from a stranger. I think happiness means embracing life, and I have not done much of that until now..

Oh I am very happy with my life right now. I have a wonderful husband and son, both of whom love me, and show me every day that they do and how much they appreciate me. I have wonderful friends who also care for me. This morning I woke up, alive and breathing and that alone is enough to make me happy. :) We are the only ones who can make us happy, although having those special people in our life certainly contributes to the happiness we fell. But if we want to be miserable, nobody can change that for us, as we are the ones who are in control of our feelings and emotions. Whilst we might not have a lot of money, we have a place to sleep, something to keep us warm, a roof over our heads, food on the table, something to drink and clothes to wear. Most of all is having someone to care for us and something to look forward to every day. Many people in this world do not have these things, so we should count our blessings for what we have. Life is too short not to be happy, so live and enjoy live while you are here on this earth.

For the first time in a long while, I can honestly say that I am happy with my life right now. My husband and I have worked together to turn our relationship around and built it back up in a positive way. I think that by building a strong foundation, it's reflected in our childrens' behavior and the way they interact with each other and with us. I think it's true that sometimes you have to go through hard times to get to where you want to be in life.

I am definitely waiting to be happy in my life if that is ever possible. I have been sad and depressed for years and I have tried alot of things to overcome it but nothing works. I feel so alone in this world and I don't think it is ever meant for me to be happy ever again. I was happy at one time in my life when my dad was still living but every since he dad, I feel all alone, empty and sad. I feel like a loner who doesn't belong inthis world with everyone else. I stay here because the lord keeps me here and I also have a husband, daughter and a doggie who keeps me around. Without them, I don't think I could go on.

I am happy despite my life for now. I have always been generally a happy kind of person. Not much gets me down. It is much preferable than to the alternative. I think that as I get older I become even more set on happy. Some sort of contentment really.

To be honest is some how very personal thing and people some time identify honesty in different way! but I can say that honest people have few very good things and one of those are sound and worryless sleep! Honesty may take them away from quick gaining but in long term they mostly gain a real stuff in life as well as they have the innocence and strong standing about themselves than those who have not honesty. The main and fore most thing they have is the achieving of cleanlyness, which helps them in doing things rightously. this mostly affects their work and makes the things easy! Spiritualy also they have good aura and nice vibrations. one can feel easy when certain person is around! Any one believes in these things?

I'm not happy financially since last year. But I'm happy with everything else. WE have been through a lot and we know that what we have is enough. Of course I'd like to travel more but I don't want to empty our piggy banks for it.

I'm happy that I have a kid. But it's not complete. I'm still waiting for the right time that would best complete my happiness. Right now, I am content with the relationshiop I have. But I know this wouldn't last. And I fear for that time to come. "Somewhere down the road..." That song applies to me.
