Are we as Americans truly happy about anything? Yes and no are the answers that came to my mind. First off, we get a new car and we are happy, we get a new puppy and we are happy, but really how long does that take and really last? Maybe up to a few hours. One minute we could be saying that we love our new car and the next whining about how slow it is warming up in the winter (I know that this is true because my car takes forever to warm up in the winter) or cooling off in the summer. Really, let's face it, we as Americans are not ever truly happy about ANYTHING! We could say how much we love life and then the next being bum out because our favorite cat die or something like that. Take the time to look around, people.
There are so many ups and downs to life. How are we ever happy then? Easy. We look forward to the good things in life. Yes. We can put up with the bad things like having to deal with a relative or a friend passing away but we can get over that even if it takes us all 7 steps of grief and loss and then some. We learn to cope with it and then go on with our lives. Life happens and we all have to learn how to deal with it. I was once told that I was too lay-back about life but I can't change who I am, but I guess I'm getting a little off subject. Once I get started on something important to me, I really don't stop until I get bored with the idea or it is finish.
So anyway, happiness. Am I happy? You bet I am! I am happily married to a great guy. I have a great, yet crazy family whom drive me crazy more times then I can court and I have great friends whom at times can be just as crazy as my family but I really don't care because they are my friends. I am happy about a lot of things. Am I unhappy? At times, yes I am, but really who isn't? So there! :)   -Brittany
