What is everyone's definition of true happiness? I was asked this question not too long ago, and was curious as to how people would answer...

--Marie

I never thought that you would ever be the one to let me down. I guess that just goes to show how wrong I always am.

To fall asleep at night knowing that the ones I love are all safe.




Every minute you are angry, you lose 60 seconds of happiness.

You see the feeling of contentment when you've made others smile...I think that's happiness

I second inot2B too

Happiness is a state of mind which I am not all that good at attaining. The way you look on things. Don't confuse happiness with joy. But simply put it is a state of mind, how you look at things. Half full or half empty don't cut it. The is still water in the glass, drink and be happy.

PS Have I confused you yet?

Like DancinQueen, I love to play piano. It's relaxing, and thus I'm happy.

But I don't have my piano anymore.
I miss playing. My mom saw an ad in the paper for a dining table and a piano, FREE, all Cherry Wood, but by the time we called, it was gone, all gone...

When I just posted a new poem, and it only takes a minute of hitting the "refresh" key before I see my first reply!
now THAT is true happiness.
