  • My immediate answer to the filling in the blank was "if i let myself". This article reminded me that i should take my own advice. I'm always telling my fiance to look at the bright side, the blessings, and stop focusing on the perceived problems. I should listen to myself more often. - 6/1/2013 3:39:08 AM
  • Finish this sentence: I could be happy if

    Invalid premise, as completing the sentence automatically defines the happiness as a future event depending on a set of circumstances. Of course people who usually follow rules will pick some future, conditional event they believe will make them happier. That's what you asked them to do. That doesn't mean they aren't happy with their lives, or don't appreciate what they have and who they are. It just means they're trying to answer the question as it was asked. - 5/31/2013 11:06:16 AM

  • I don't think that way about weight or trivial things. I know I can be happy if it was just that. But feeling insecure about my future or security in life is what makes me unhappy. Never know if I will be okay financially or for sure there will be a roof over my head or what will happen if this situation happens. Financial insecurity is what makes me not happy! - 5/30/2013 12:49:24 PM

    I really liked this article! It's so hard to remain positive when you are in a vast sea of negative. And gratitude for what is right in front of you is so important. Can we hear from this author again? - 5/30/2013 10:06:33 AM
  • What a great article. While it references Buddhism, there is also a verse in the Bible that reads - "I have learned to be content in whatever situation I am." I must often remind myself of this verse when I start to want what my neighbors have, or start feeling like I will be happy in the future when....malcontent seems to be innate to human nature; being in a state of contentment is a learned behavior. - 5/30/2013 7:48:30 AM

  • Although this article sounds a bit like Pollyanna, it is absolutely true. And, put in other words, you can make yourself miserable by always concentrating on the bad things in life. Deal with the bad as best you can then put it behind you and move on. - 5/30/2013 7:24:26 AM
  • Great article.I think everyone probably has one thing that happen in a days time that they can be happy about. It doesn't hurt to smile and it is pretty. - 10/15/2012 7:54:50 AM
