I guess I would define happiness as joy or gladness. As far as what makes me happy, there are many things, God, family, good health for me and my family, my dogs, love, many many things.

"Happiness can be defined, in part at least, as the fruit of the desire and ability to sacrifice what we want now for what we want eventually." "The greater part of our happiness or misery depends on our disposition and not on our circumstances" --Martha Washington "Happiness is not a station you arrive at, but a manner of traveling" --Margaret B. Runbeck "The secret to happiness is not in doing what one likes to do, but in liking what one has to do"

A. Formal definition of happiness or flourishing (eudaimonia) Happiness (or flourishing or living well) is a complete and sufficient good. This implies (a) that it is desired for itself, (b) that it is not desired for the sake of anything else, (c) that it satisfies all desire and has no evil mixed in with it, and (d) that it is stable. from Notes on Aristotle's Nicomachean Ethics Hope that this is what you are looking for.

Happiness to me would be opening the discussions page on myLot and not finding it full of garbage posts like this one.
