How Am I Living...?

Am I satisfied? Happy? Content? Are we happy? Do what I do make me happy? What is happiness in my eyes and in my reality?

Now, I know you're probably stuck on this thought as you motion your head either upwards or straight ahead in a gaze trying to (1) figure out what I'm really asking here or (2) think of whether or not you're happy about about things when you look @ the daily circumstances of your life.

In keeping it in its truest essence of K.I.S.S. [Keep It Simple Stupid (no pun intended)]. These questions I pose are derived from the basic premise of "How are you living in reference to happiness?"

Without even hearing your story, I can honestly say that we all should be happy b/c with each day there's a new opportunity and possibility for you to reach a level of happiness. Just the simple fact that you woke up this morning is more than enough of a reason to be happy. Having the ability to even turn on a computer whether it is yours or your jobs and access "A Time & Place for Everything" is another reason to be happy (had to throw that in there). I can go on and on but the point I'm trying to make is whether or not we confuse happiness with what we do or don't have ... or do we confirm happiness about where we stand in our reality?

Thanks for your minds and thoughts...

Well,I do believe Waters...that the root of someoe's happiness is grounded in thier personal life experiences. It seems as thought people tend to equate happiness with a plethora of things, such as how much money they have,make,will make or just the dream of what life would be like if that maoney was made. with whom a person spends thier time/life with, family or the lack there of and etc. It also, seems as though one's happiness is tied into the belief that a moment /day of pain, shall bring about a season of pleasure. But if the question were up to I to answer a lone,then it is quite simple. Happiness is rooted in one's own personal reality...meaning it [happiness]is and at times will always be and individual emotion.. and to others it may be a construct. Something that only and only, that particular person can understand. And, happiness, can also be a generalized emotion, if you consider it in the terms religion. But at the end of the day, happiness is whatever puts and keeps a smile on your face and beat in heart....And let us not forget that happiness in its most true and olny true form is God.
