Is life really about the 'money', the 'cash', who has the biggest gold chain or who drives
the shiniest or fastest car, who sells the most albums or who has the most respect? Today
happiness is viewed in many different ways. Everyone defines happiness according to their
personal perpectives. Each individual describes their inner feelings in a way that you
can't compare with another.Happiness originally and logically means the inner state of
well being or a pleasurable or satisfying experience. It enables you to profit from your
highest: thoughts, wisdom, intelligence, common sense, emotions, health, and spiritual
values in your life. What makes you happy and what makes me happy are different things.
Whatever it is that gives you warm fuzzes is determined by you, and only you. This

Most of the happiness that we experience comes from the feeling of love. So many people
look to their love relationships,especially marriage to give them the happiness that they

will not bring happiness, then hopefully we will be more tolerant of the imperfections of

meet our expectations it doesn't mean that we have lost our chance for happiness. When we
do not expect love to give us the happiness we seen, there will be more room for
forgiveness of the imperfections and problems that always accompany love.

student, living with both of my parents,two brothers and two sisters in California. I was
getting my education living normal healthy life but I knew something was missing and that
was a person to share my life and heart with. The lack of love that I had at that time
made me rethink and askmyself , if I would be happier if I was in love? Of course I
couldn't answer to my own question at that moment. I remember when I graduated from
highschool, if only I can express the feeling of comfort that I felt on that day. I
honestly can't express it because it's an inner feeling and

touch that only the individual itself understands it and feels it.Another thing that I can
defiantly consider to be a happy experience is birth. Giving birth to a child is an
ultimate feeling.I've never had a baby but I would positively
