  • 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..

    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
  • This article has done more for me and my thought process than the 100 or so I have read. Reframing your thinking is the skill I need to achieve to be successful and to stop waiting for some event to happen to make me happy. I should be and can be happy Now! - 6/6/2008 9:52:25 PM

  • I love this article. It goes with one of my favorite sayings, "It's not getting what you want, it's wanting what you've got." - 4/2/2008 12:41:22 PM
  • Great article! This goes hand in hand with the book I'm reading, A New Earth, by Eckhart Tolle. Wonderful stuff... - 4/2/2008 10:42:41 AM
  • How true it is...I have just been active for the past hour although have been subscribing to SparkPeople Healthy Reflections. I just realised how reading about tenets helped me through difficulties in life and one that I'm going through right now. I just finished reading the article & reflected on my life. I've always been unhappy despite all the good things happening in my life: taking my MBA, meeting new friends, having a loving family, supportive friends, etc.. All these things I take for granted (or took now that I have resolved that I will stop here & now) when something awry happens in my life. Recently my breakup of 2 months ago has been the focus of my bitterness in life. I always wallow in self-pity because of one person's refusal to love me. I made him the benchmark of attaining happiness. It was my fault because when he left, he took away all my happiness. I gave him the power over me. After reading the article, I have more hopes about changing my outlook & look at the goodness in life. - 3/30/2008 6:38:53 PM
  • this article is so true, if we all quit wanting so much and focus on what we have and how that affects us, we would probaly not be at war with Iraq.....
