Happy, everything is going ok, so mustn't gruble!!
Yes, I couldn't be more happy with my life
Yes, not perfect but almost
No, but I'm not really making an effort to change it
No, but I'm trying really hard to change it
I don't know
Happy, everything is going ok, so mustn't gruble!!
Happy and content most days, but of course there are still "those" days!
Not really. I might be clinically depressed and it's due to getting old. When I was a senior in high school all I wanted was a BMW, my own apartment, to go to college, to grow up and be a hott, trendy, cool gay guy, have hott sex and make my own rules. In these past four years I have accomplished all that and now my life is starting to fall apart because i'm old. thats probally why i'm going through this early mid-life crisis and moving to LA. I'm 22 now and I have noticed that I don't turn as many heads when i go out. All my friends grew up and they are having babies and getting married and i'm still trying to relive the days of the past. I have my own apartment but the only time I ever go there is when I screw a guy. I stay at my parents house other than that. My grandma ran into the side of my car and now it's four years old and pretty much worthless and my parents won't buy me a new one and I don't have any money because I don't work anymore. I'm just stuck in this routine life that is boring. Hopefully moving to LA and going to a new school, new clubs, new friends, new job, new boyfriend, and a shiny new bimmer will make me happy. I pray that it does or eles I just won't know what to do with my life.
I'm not unhappy either. Content, maybe. But not happy.
Happiness, in my view, is having a reason to be excited about each new day. I just don't have that reason right now. I would make an effort to change that, but I'm not sur what would make me happy or if its even attainable.
Yes, perfect but not almost. You can ask Croynan about this.
No, and I just had an intake with the school psychologist yesterday, so I'm working on changing that.

I already voted and said no.
Yes, not perfect but it's getting better.
After a shitty 8 month period, I may start a new happy period.
(this is what I read on my yearly horoscope and it's actually happening).
i am content yes.
I'm very happy...
But I do have days when I need to stop and count my blessings.
I have found that happy is more of a state of mind. I admit so many have serious problems that really make life a challange, for those I hope the blue bird of happiness shits all over their head....
Everything except my health, but I play the hand I've been dealt.
I think I finally reached my "happiest" plateau about 6 years ago, and have been fortunate enough to stay there ever since.
I can't think of much more I want, or much more that I need. I don't think life can ever be totally "perfect".
NOW...If I could just trade this body in for a healthy one.....that might make it almost perfect!!!!!
All I can do is direct you to my recent blog entry rather than typing it all again here.
Yes I admit this thread stimulated the writing of the said entry.
And yes this is evidently a pathetic effort at self advertising.
I've been in a really good place for quite a while now. I am a genuinely happy man!!
Stone cold sober as a matter of fact.
I aim for (almost) perfection in my work so I get great end results but I don't aim for perfection in my life. I don't think one's life should be perfect. It's the imperfections that make for an interesting and varied life. As i'm sure it would be pretty boring if everyday was the same perfect sequence as the day before and nothing ever went wrong and no one got hurt or bills always took care of themselves. God no, that would be a living hell. Life's a bitch as they say and you have to grow to love the bitch of life before you can achieve your own version of happiness.
I'm happy but actively trying to improve :0)
I was very happy and hope to be again. Life was really good when my best friend was around. When he died suddenly in 2005, I felt like my life ran into a brick wall at full speed. It was truly devestating. I continue to miss him and I know that I will never know anyone like him again because he was truly one of a kind.
So the journey continues without him beside be but still in my heart.
As for people seeking happiness by buying things. I cannot relate to that at all. I have never searched for happiness through material posessions. As a child, I grew up feeling that I had too much. I even told my parents that I didn't want so much stuff. I like to have nice things but I know that does not bring happiness, at least for me. Labels don't mean anything to me unless there is somethig substantial backing it, such as environmental responsibility.
I really love nature. I love the variety of it. I love the beauty of it. I love the energy.
Like already been said not perfect but perfectly happy.
"Happiness is the art of being too busy to be miserable."
I'm never too busy to tell people how busy I am - go figure
Things are great...."Life is Good"
I think "content" is the word. I'm a firm believer in making the best of what you've got, and from a very early age I've done that very thing. I wasn't always served opportunities or happiness on a golden platter, but I'm a positive thinker. You'd be surprised how much the "nothing's really as important as you make it out to be" attitude helps. I have days when I don't wanna get out of bed like everybody else, but all over, I'm pretty content and happy with the state of my life. I surround myself with great people, and that's really all that matters.
