fub4r asked a good question...

What is the secret/key to happiness?

I'm trying to get an answer...I've been thinking about it for three days now.

Any ideas?

I'm going to try to come up with my own key...but I wondered what yours are...

you know what's funny? i'm in the regenstein lobby RIGHT NOW. but maybe i can sneak out without you meeting me. ;)


p.s. the key to happiness is believing that your life is intrinsically worth something, independent of things like school, careers, marraige, a house, two kids, and a 401K.

what's with the sneaking out?

I'm so oblivious...you'd have to trip me before I'd notice anything. :p

the key to it? Staying happy.

Of cource if you can get to where you are happy, then that isn't actually too hard once you realise it.

Of cource happy is different for every person. But I think independance and fufilment come high for everyone.

that's what I said too...fub4r didn't think that answer was worth much...hence my quest
15th-Oct-2003 07:04 pm (UTC)
What part didn't they think was worth much?

If its the latter part then they are very sad :/

not so much...it was but in jest...

i think, more than anything else, contentment is the key to happiness.
15th-Oct-2003 05:47 pm (UTC)
good call...so then what makes you content?

*dodges the smack down*

My key to happiness is having the future planned out, if only for the next month.

Having something to look forward to is what keeps me going.

I like that...

I've gotten about six months worth of happiness from two days so I'm up.

Ask me in a week and I'll probably give you a different answer.

Babies. That works for me. Holding a baby at even the worst moment in my life can get me through it. I held one when we bombed Bagdad the first time and sobbed thinking of all the babies dying, and thanked god/goddess/whatever that this one was safe.
15th-Oct-2003 06:25 pm (UTC)
That's a good one (and points for being concrete as well)

I cried when I knew we were bombing...for the people.

And then I cried again once it was over...because the Americans let robbers steal their history.

Not to be flip, but vodka. Not because it makes me drunk, but because sometimes you just need to let go for a while. (And yes, I have other stuff too, but I like this answer for now.)
15th-Oct-2003 06:48 pm (UTC)
heh...concise at least...
15th-Oct-2003 05:27 pm (UTC)
Learning to be content with what you have.
15th-Oct-2003 08:49 pm (UTC)
yeah, yeah...vague much? I said the same thing to fub4r. She said it wasn't a very good answer...

But I do think that's the truth, however vague
16th-Oct-2003 03:32 am (UTC)
You can't be specific with this answer. It is a bit different to everyone.

I could go all Christian with it and say that having a relationship with God is what brings happiness. That is the specific answer I have always been given.
16th-Oct-2003 05:27 am (UTC)
I didn't say it wasn't a good answer, I just said it was vague.
16th-Oct-2003 06:11 am (UTC)
vaguery to me is bad... I should have made myself clearer with that

16th-Oct-2003 06:32 am (UTC)
I'm one of the most vague people I know, at times. It's probably my favourite feature.
