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 !

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!

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!

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."

Great article! This goes hand in hand with the book I'm reading, A New Earth, by Eckhart Tolle. Wonderful stuff...

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.

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.....

Great article. As Abraham Lincoln said "A person is just about as happy as he makes his mind up to be." He had so much disappointment and heartache in his life, but he worked toward his goals. If we have depression today, we are lucky to have good doctors and medicine to help. We all need to remember to have an annual physical.

This article tells us the truth.Happiness is inside not outside us.But alas!How difficult is this concept to implement.
