Don't pleased....

I was talking to a very good friend today about happiness. Our conclusion? Well, we didn’t really have one but I’ve pondered this on the way home from work and while I have no definitive answer on happy I do know this –

- Doing what I like when I like pleases me.
- Having good friends who I don’t have to explain myself to is excellent
- Walking along the creek through the rainforest is peaceful
- Being the mistress of my own destiny is empowering
- Being free and able to speak my mind without fear of reprisal is priceless
- Being 47 and fearless is everything I wanted to be when I was 6.
All in all, I’m going to go with the doability of pleasure and leave happy to the greeting card companies. You wouldn’t want Hallmark to be unhappy would ya?

Happiness and contentment are choices for the most part. And discontent is frequently another name for greediness. No one can make another person "happy" if that person chooses not to be...though they CAN make someone miserable if they put their mind to it, I suppose.
