Read the title.
Many of you are very cheery people, with sunny personalities .
But with some it seems forced somehow.
Simple question, but think before you say yes.
Are you happy? Are you content? If you were to die right now, what would you regret?
And btw this is nothing to do with philosophy, or spamming or whatever, I'm just a deep thinker, and I want to know other people's feelings.
I won't be happy 'till I get a job. In the mean time I look around at Haiti, Iran, Darfur etc. etc. etc. and shake my head because these people will never know how hard it is to be a healthy, educated, straight, middle-American white guy. At times the plight is overwhelming.
"Astronomy offers an aesthetic indulgence not duplicated in any other field. This is not an academic or hypothetical attraction and should require no apologies, for the beauty to be found in the skies has been universally appreciated for unrecorded centuries."
yes, but only when I remember that it's just a state of mind.

I'm incredibly happy.
I live on the principle that if something is making you miserable, then you need to remove the elements that are causing that. It doesn't happen over night, of course. It took me about 5 years to go from miserable to happy....but I knew the exact elements that were making me unhappy, and I changed them.
It really is that easy.
The concept of it is easy, I mean. The steps to create happiness may be difficult...but if you work at it, you can be happy, too.
Sometimes. Sometimes I'm not. If you were happy all the time, it'd get boring.
I'm driven in my art, I'm happy when with my friends.
Right now, I'm driven.

The more we understand about happiness the more power we have to achieve it and the more it becomes a choice.
And yes, I choose to be happy.
Yep, I'm happy! I was miserable through school and college but now I've started uni and it feels like I'm getting somewhere, I've really nothing to be unhappy about anymore
No, I'm not happy. The last time I was happy was about 10 years ago, before I began to suffer from depression. My unhappiness reached its peak in late 2006, when a whole lot of shit went down, as a result I spent the whole of 2007 in a zombie-like state. After that mess, I've gotten a little bit better but I'm still extremely bitter.
I know this is a bit off topic but reading the book, the secret really made sense to me. Some of it was just common sense, well put. Definitely understand the power of one's thoughts to influence one's feelings now as a result of it. Recommend it highly.

Yes. I am.
Wicked happy, everything is good

I just moved into a huge new place in a beautiful town with a boy I love and we just got a new puppy that's the most wonderful little creature in the world, and art pals come to stay with us for a couple days to a couple weeks, and I get to wake up when I want and go to bed when I want and work from home doing something I love, and I can afford my bills most of the time, so I'd say yes.
I'd say so.
There is a saying, "if you want to make others happy, practice compassion. If you want to make yourself happy, practice compassion."
Everybody wants to go to heaven, but nobody wants to die
Because I say... Life, is not a big deal, it's just not. We all end, all 6 something billion of us. Fuck it and enjoy the ride.

I am happy, most of the time
Writing is good, thinking is better. Cleverness is good, patience is better.
Things that make people happy:
-having a gf or bf
-having money, as a matter of fact having a job, preferably what you want to do in life
-Having a good social circle
-Having a good relation with your family
if you have all that you should be happy, as soon as you lack 1 of those , Im pretty sure you will feel sad more often.
...as for me I have all of that so yeah Im happy!
Thats the 3rd time today i've needed to consult a dictionary...
Crit for a crit!
I am very happy and I think that I've always been happy with most aspects of my life. Sometimes I get sad but as long as I can get through those times, I am happy.
