What Does it Mean to be Happy?

Do you know if you’re happy?  What does happy look like?

Can you control the degree of happiness in your life?  What about when life throws you all those curve balls?

Apparently, experts say that “between 50% and 80% of our happiness is really under our control!”

The goal is not to hide your feelings or pretend you’re happy.  Feelings guide us.

Loving Today reports that happy people:

1. enjoy what they do for a living
2. have close relationships with family & friends
3. have a certain amount of faith (spiritual element)
4. describe themselves as optimists
5. have at least a modicum of good health
6. and last, but not least, have enough material things that they don’t worry about food or shelter for themselves or their family

What is one thing you can do right now to be happier?
