Are you happy? Why or why not?
 
Simple question.

Myself, I am not happy. I have aspirations I have yet to achieve. Of course things can be worse, and I guess objectively I am doing ok, but I want more from life.

Yes, I am, because I made my own happiness the most important goal of my life. I am not religious, I don't believe in hell, heaven, afterlife and reincarnation, so I believe you are given only one life and that is it. So why spend it unhappy, depressed or chasing some unrealstic goal? I'd rather enjoy this limited time I am given in this world. Let some fanatic, zealot or politician chase some "high" goal. I am content where I am. And the more time I spend enjoying my life, the better life I am living - and that is the only thing that matters to me.

Sometimes I am happy, and other times I am not happy. When I am happy, I usually tell people that I am not happy, and vice versa.

I'm not happy. But I am proud of a few things.
I''m not unhappy either. But I am disappointed for many things.

I'm trying to imbibe that famous Wimbledon / Kipling quote:
Quote:

If you can meet with Triumph and Disaster and treat those two imposters just the same
I've read too much Eckhart Tolle. And started believing it. :-)

I just am.

No, but I hate talking about it.

I think true happiness is quite rare. Im angry at myself for being the way i am sometimes, but considering all the wonderful things I have, I can not but be content and thankful.

I think I'm pretty happy. Recently graduated with two business degrees, have a great job working for Toyota (which I get great benefits especially with for their cars), I have a very fun wife and son, have a nice three bed/bath condo only 10 minutes away from work with no mortgage (most proud of actually :D ) and I have plenty of spare time every day to play tennis and write/record music. Only thing missing is probably that I wish I would play more tennis tournaments, but I think that has mostly to do with being lazy...sometimes tough to get out of bed on a weekend after a 60 hour week.. Oh and perhaps I wish I had more vacation days to go off somewhere :( but that is all in due time, progressing fast enough in career so nothing to worry about.

Other than that, don't really do much else, haha. Not really religious, so I guess no stress comes from there :p and no one really gives me any shit in life, so that is always a plus.

I envy u right here lol :p

Anyways i find myself happy, ofc there are more things that i need to solve so i could be peacefull but well, there isnt such a thing as constant happines, sooner or later all the happines u have will be balanced with bad things. But ofc at the end in the memory only good things remains.
