  • I don't know how to describe happiness. I am happy most of the time. I love my life and my family, my home. I love where I'm headed in live - I love everything.
    It's a lot of work though. It's hearing a bad situation and finding a silver lining. Sometimes it's not even a real silverlining (or it will be - it just won't be big), I'll just be kidding but even the 'just kidding' small-ish silverlining makes me feel better. Once you get into the habit of turning every frown upside down (okay, maybe not EVERY frown), it gets easier. I'm not trying to say that I'm happy ALL the time because that would be a lie. But even if I'm angry at my husband for leaving a yogurt cup in the floor (oh yes, this happens), I still love my life and I'm happy where I am. I tell my kids "I love you all the time - even if I'm angry or upset. I love you no matter what." And thats with happiness too. I'm happy where I am, even if I'm not in a moment.

  • I'm happy because I'm where I want to be, doing what I want to do and with the people I love most.
