    Happiness Is Family

    To me happiness will result in rooting myself with a family and continuing life as has been done for many years.  Unfortunatly this requires that which I find so difficult to obtain.  A companion.  A lover.  An eternal friend.

    I Cannot Find Happiness

    I cannot find happiness because happiness is made not found.   I am happy I have my health.   I am happy for my abilities.   I am happy I have a roof over my head.   I am happy to still be alive.  I'll be happier when I find my soulmate.

    It'S Within Ourselves, Somewhere

    I won't talk too much on this subject.. I can not find happiness, but what I believe to be true is that it is within each of us. Not in others, or things, etc.. Only in ourselves...

    I live a southern soap opera!

    I want to be happy, but I don't want to be merely content or blasé. Is that possible?    " 'We have invented happiness,' says the last man, and he blinks." from Nietzsche's Thus spoke Zarathustra

    Utter Misery

    It's your life! Maybe when you become so miserable you'd rather be dead than live on, you will become willing to at least try to choose happiness or whatever you believe is better than your misery and unhappiness. It's your life!

    Been awhile since I've felt really happy, but then again I'm one of those never totally satisfied types of ppl. Always one more challenge, one more hurdle or whatever.
