It's pretty obvious, but my source of happiness from day-to-day is getting to wake up that day. Waking up each day means more time to put into my passion, family and love.

True happiness is when you are grateful for all the things you currently have - family, friends, career, security.

Is in our nature, though, to seek for more in life - and that's healthy - but I think true happiness in life is when you are contented with what your are right now, where you are, and what you can do to others.

One must find something within themselves to be happy about before they can look out to others for happiness. There is always, something within each one of us that sparks happiness. We just have to locate that one thing and like Deanna said, work out from there.

What is it within yourself, something about you, that makes you feel good or happy. What ability or trait do you have that makes you say, "Wow! I am good at that!"


Walk in Peace and Harmony.

True Happiness? It's different things at different times for me.
It can be having a great discussion with my daughters about "life" or it can be walking for an hour by myself and letting my mind wander. It seems like the older I get - the happier I am ....maybe its because I agree with the post above,
I now realize that happiness does come from within, and being grateful for what I have.

This is the place I then start to grow from and reach for my next goal. That's how I grow and stay happy and excited about my life.


I know that I have value and am constantly evolving;that makes me happy.

I believe we ourselves control our happiness...
Same events might be perceive differently by different people. So if you think you want to be happy,nobody can make you sad.

Me, I'm happiest after I've just recovered from being sick! I love feeling healthy and energetic and productive again. My happiest day was a few days after getting my gall bladder removed, walking around my neighborhood after recovering from the surgery. Everything went perfectly, I was healthy and home again, and I'd never felt happier.

I also have ulcerative colitis, which flares up every few weeks. After it's calm again, I find myself savoring my happiness. The flare ups are awful, but the happiness when I'm healthy again....priceless!

I use to go out of my way to make people happy, but it really didn't make them happy, or me happy. I'm learning to make myself happy. Yoga makes me feel good. I'm being greatful for the things I got, I like working in the yard, watching the animals, Travel.

Hi PattiJean,

This was a lesson for me too. Especially since I believe we are truly here to be of service to one another. I had to learn being of service did not mean taking responsibility for someone elses happiness. :::whew:::

Hi Deanna,

I agree with you. I learned a lot about making other people happy. Before this I also try so hard to please people around me until I learned about NLP. Its not our responsibility to satisfy or be responsible for other people happiness if they reluctant to do it themselves.

And beware, one of the personality of people who develop cancer is trying too hard to please other people but neglecting yourself needs.You are not going to success if you try to make other people satisfied because people never satisfied.
