  • Wow! ~What a useful article. I am so often lost in all the wants in my life that I certainly forget to look at how much I do have. Thanks for the much needed reminder and inspiration. Tertua - 11/7/2008 12:47:08 PM
  • This is an awsome articole. for people who want to read more about it , please read "The art of Happiness" written by the Dalai Lama. It explains in greater detail how he understands happiness. - 11/7/2008 11:43:51 AM

    I needed to read this article tonight. I was feeling very anxious and knowing that I'm doing something good for myself eased my worry a little bit. A lot is changing for me right now, including myself. Under the stress of it all I feel a little crazy. - 10/24/2008 7:53:45 PM
  • I use to be like that. I became ill when I was 39. I was able to work five more years. Then, I went on disability. The doctors prognosis was very poor. I guess I was waiting for the prognosis to come true. In January my entire attitude changed. I began to exercise daily and eat healthy. I lost some weight right away and began to feel better.
    I decided that I have a lot of things to be happy for. I have a more positive attitude, am more friendlier, participate in life's activites, etc. I am even planning to go back to work .
    I am no longer waiting for something to happen to be happy. I enjoy each day's experience as it comes. - 10/21/2008 11:03:45 PM
  • Excellent, excellent article everyone can benefit from reading. Ditto on this is definitely one of the best SP articles I've read!!!!! Thank you so much!!!!! - 10/21/2008 9:20:54 PM
  • AMEN! Loved the article! Finally someone else who realizes that being greatful and enjoying what you have is not "settling"! At this point in my life all the "wanting" is practically gone and I am learning to see the good in all things, all struggles, and all challenges I have. I am truly happy and want for nothing. So, can I get some help with that age old question..."what do you want for Christmas?"!!!!!!! - 10/21/2008 11:52:37 AM

    This is one of the best articles that I've ever read here at Spark. How true it is!! What a great perk to my day. I am doing this for me and every little stride I make to be healthier is a great stride. I will try my best to never look down at the scale again and be disappointed in 1 pound! :0) - 10/21/2008 10:18:36 AM

  • This is a GREATTTTTTTTTTT article..

    Too many people rely on others to "make "them happy. Joy comes from our hearts, not things or people..

    Celebrate life ! - 6/20/2008 9:58:26 PM

    This is exactly what I am talking about! This is my attitude. People always ask me how I can be so happy and so positive all the time. Because I look at all the good things - whether they are things I have done to better myself, my work, my home, my family, or they are things others have done. I look for the happiness in life every day, and see it. Thank you for this article, I hope it helps people out there still trying to figure out what happiness is! - 6/11/2008 10:11:51 PM
