How can you say you’re truly happy? What are the ‘standards’ that measure your happiness? Doesn’t it involve any of these things:
- number of ‘friends’?
- able to buy everything we want?
- success in your work/business?
Yes, you might have a lot of money to spend or have a lot of ‘friends’ that give you attention for the wrong reasons. Yes, you might be successful in your work or business, but you spend all of your waking hour in it – no breaks, no me-time, no time for friends or family. Where’s the happiness in that?
We’re used to the concept that when we make a lot of money or when we get to buy everything we want (not need), that makes us happy. So what are the signs of true happiness then?
“It’s not about the money, money, money“, Jessie J. sings.
For me, being truly happy is having contentment, living a healthy life, involved in positive relationships and having all of that in balance. 🙂

Nice post, Mishi. I especially love the #7 Gratitude part. Here’s a related post, my “Live Thankful Project: 15 Days of Blessing” >> http://seekersportal.wordpress.com/2011/07/07/live-thankful-project-15-days-of-blessing/
Thanks for that Adrian! I’ll read it ♥ 🙂
I think living with a smile always brings positive karma… meaning it brings joy not only to ourselves but to others as well… 😀
I agree! 🙂
