How many of you are really happy with what you have? Happiness is the feeling which states our satisfaction and pleasure. But now a days satisfaction is nowhere found on this planet. Every one are running behind something or the other with greed. I think the real happiness lies in thinking positive. All the world should be psycologically happiness which is only attained by peace. The being happy is what we do the best to the society and i think most us are not 100 percent happy. I know, i know that no one is perfect but do you think that being perfect is impossible???? Nope we can share many things in mylot and i want few ideas to live happily without any tension or stress in life. I hope my discussions helps many for their better lives. So shall we start...

Hello. You had a nice point of view..:) Actually, i'm a cheerful person, easy to make me laugh/smile but for now, i think i'm not really happy. I did smile or laugh but that happinesss is only for a while. I'm not asking or expecting too much, it's just that i still feel incomplete. Not only in money matters but in all aspects i think. feeling happy is simple but being happy isn't that easy. it's true that one must be contented to what he/she had now and appreciate it. and of course, don't forget to thank God for it.:)

Thanks for your compliment. But you see i have many problems and i don't take them seriously because everything is already written by god and we need to wait for the thing to happen in our life a right time. I don't think incompletion is always there in person's life. There will be some factor behind it...find it and be happy...

Ur welcome and thanks for ur advice..:) I guess your right about God already had plans for us, but problems not taking it seriously?.how can we solve it if we're not taking it seriously? Anyway, i also believe that saying i feel incomplete is kinda wrong,but i can't think of the right word to express how i'm feeling. Anyway, just like what u've said, God have plans for us, so i think i'll just wait for it to come in due time and try to be happy with what i am and what i have right now. Thanks and Godbless you

I am happy! I know life is not always contains of happiness, there are pains, angers,jealous, etc. We will have some bad moods. That is okay, as long as you have someting to think of when you are not happy to make you happy. That's my opinions.

Right now I am exausted, physicaly and emotionaly exausted. It seems that everything needs to be done and it needs to be done now. There are a lot of people asking me for a lot of things that I cant give. I am first a mom and if I have any will then I can help someone else. Im not always like this. It has been a hard week or month rather and I am just done dealing with it all and taking care of me.

Sorry for you. I think now enjoy being mom. Be a good mom by taking care of the young one leaving all the trouble and sorrow behind the hell. Now you need to take care of the tender life so that you will be happy and make the bud happy. All the best.

As long as i love what i do and i am contented on the results or outcome, i can say that i am happy. No one can measure his or her own happiness because it is already available for us. All we need to do is to grab it. If time gives you the chance, go for it because most of the things and opportunities are given once in a life time.

I think you're really right. The root of all the greed is money. And no one will be satisfied and happy if money still lyes in every one's mind.

I can say that I am happy right now. I have my husband and my son with me, that is all that matters to me. I am happy to see my son grow up and have fun in school. Though there are some things we do not have yet, I am still thankful that my family is complete.

so be happy..many are happy because of their happy family..this is real satisfaction and attaining happiness in life :)

I absolutely agree that happiness is only the state of mind.Contentment is what which brings cent percent happiness.The entire world is running the rat race -after material benefits.From children to old people every one wants to lead aluxurious life compete with each other to possess all kinds of gadgets ,jewels,palatial houses ,high positions and so on and so forth.But everything in life is transient ,nothing is permanent in the world.Doing yog or meditation will surely relieve the stress and tension in the world and enable ue to acquire mental satisfaction and there by happiness.

I am happy with the people I love. I am happy to see them happy. The only thing that will make me feel sad is to see them sad. They are the love of my life. They share their smiles and joys with me all the time. Our problems get solved in each other's help. Love makes our world understand each other.

"Man is never content with what he has" and it is the same with many of us here. MyLot is one such place where people register to earn "extra" money which shows that no one here is really content. So when one is not content how can he/she be happy! I'm not really happy at this point of my life but i try my best to enjoy every phase of my life and laugh away at difficult times. The best way to be tension-free is to just relax and think about he present. When you start pondering about the past and worrying about the future you invite tension/stress and many other disease. Don't think about money for a while and believe that you are having a peaceful and a happy life. All the best :)

Good thoughts. The best way to lead a happy life is lead a stress free life. The money is not everything in the world but there is some other power which makes you to get attached to it and i think there should be an anti dote called happiness to be developed in order to make the power of money weak.

I recently read a book called the power of now by eckhart tolle where they teach you how you can be happy even in bad times. I have been quite happy after reading the book and I highly recommend it if you want to achieve happiness.

Yes i agree with your words, happiness is satisfaction, achievement and our emotions. Its not impossible to be perfect, one can be perfect, if we are, if we think we can, if we have positive attitude, positive thoughts and positive things for others.

so how well do you follow the said words and leading a happy life. I know that emotions are the inner feelings which are to be controlled to far extent but they have to come out in proper time. Good luck buddy

most of the time, happiness and satisfaction are related to each other. what is satisfaction for me cannot be satisfaction for you. i feel happiness should not be weighed in terms of satisfaction but it should have a different definition. think of the times when you achieved success and were happy. you will remember many such ocassions but the also remember the happiness was short lived. the moment you started thinking high you forgot the happiness. why not try something different for happiness. try to be happy by making others happy, help people in achieving their goals or targets. bring a smile on a gloomy face. think about the time when you were happy and be happy with the thought that atleast you had a fortunate time, many on earth can't even taste what you were bestowed upon. try not to compare yourself with with the higher up but in case you compare then compare yourself who are below your level.

well said these things can make people happy by the intention of making others happy. If the person's intentions are really good and genuine then i don't think that sorrow can be there in his life for long. But satisfaction makes people tumble for worries..

True. I completely agree with you. Thinking positively really helps. As some wise sayings put it "Worrying is like being on a rocking chair" one can keep rocking the chair yet it doesnt take you anywhere. You remain in that condition no matter how long you rock that chair. So you might as well change the channel of your mind if worrying doesn't take you anywhere. Being happy is a decision too.

yeah thinking positively makes many negative things to run in a perfect way. Positive thinking always makes a person to think in good way and never go wrong with his decisions. I hope all will develop that attitude and make the planet go happy...

Well i can say that right now in my life i am happy. I have a family of my own. I have a supportive hubby and a smart and adorable daughter. Because of them i can say that i am happy, we dont have everything in life but the love to each other was the greatest thing we have right now. I am glad that God gave me opportunity to be a mother and a wife also, its really a nice feeling everyday that i am with them. Although now my hubby was working abroad so i am just with my daughter, but still the love to each other was there even his far away. I am just happy thats what i can say =)
