    Happiness Is Valuable

    It’s like the feeling of peace, almost as if nothing is wrong. Satisfaction that’s gained by knowledge of accomplishment or joy that’s granted that all problems are forgotten or forgiven; A feeling that gives your heart a pinch of warmth.

    Basic Happiness Is

    Being Warm, Dry And Fed.  Good Health is another basic happiness.  Being Thankful and Grateful for what we do have is another basic happiness.  Enjoying the moment is a gift.  To me music is happiness.  It is a bonus happiness.

    Ah, to Be Happy.

    Happiness to me:  would be a sense of ease and contentment, with myself, my relationships, my surroundings, my life. Everything negative could easily be brushed aside - as redundant.

    For me, happiness seems to be relative to my self esteem & harmony rather than any outside thing. True, there are things in life that "generally" give me a happy burst like old couples holding hands or the sound of the ocean. But when I am morose, bitter, or...
