    I’m almost always happy!  🙂 

    I have my adorable, lovable, sweet, sexy husband, my darling son and step-son, friends and family, my health, a great job with retirement and benefits, lovely home, plenty of everything I need and then some, stable finances.  I’m truly blessed. 

    My husband and everyone who knows me would absolutely describe me as a happy person.

    No complaints here; nothing to be unhappy about.

    I am really happy most of the time.  I guess I just love my life, I have a great husband, a nice house in a great neighborhood, financial stability, and I’m just all around very comfortable and content.  Plus, I don’t have to work, so I don’t get stressed from that.

    I’m almost always a very happy person! Irritatingly chirpy on occasion, but generally just a sunny, glass half full type. 

    I had bad depression several years ago, which took me a long time to get over. In the last couple of years I’ve really felt on the ‘upswing’ again. I have a gorgeous, clever, funny daughter, a wonderful man who loves me as much as I love him, I finally have a job I love, I’ve got great friends…

    after being so very low for a long time, it’s absolutely amazing to *be able* to feel the positives again, so I revel in every one 🙂

    I am pretty much always happy but others probably wouldn’t say so. I’m not the ‘happy, smiley, bubbly’ type so most people think i’m just ‘blah’ all the time. Even my husband has a hard time knowing if I’m pissed off. I need to work on that.

    I really do love my life though. I am very blessed.

    I guess I’m happy. The main factor attributing to my unhappiness is money. We can’t afford to move out of my parents house, and I hope we will be able to before the wedding. Crossing my fingers that my FI gets promoted once he finishes school!

    I would say I am moderately happy.  I am a glass-half-empty girl and very pessimistic, so I’m sure that has something to do with it.  Although if I evaluate the things in my life- there is very little I would change.

    @PoppyRose:   I’m with you! 

    I really think the main reason I’m so happy at this time in my life is because I’m STRONG  from having suffered so many dark days in the past.  I’ve been through hell and survived to tell the tale, and try to help others survive the things I can relate to.  It makes a difference. 

    I’m certainly not happy because I’ve never suffered anything; I’m happier now simply because I know what the complete opposite of happiness really feels like.

    I am a generally happy person, though it may not show outwards. I don’t have a constant smile on my face, but that doesn’t always mean that I’m crabby!

    I would say I am a truly happy person, even when things are bad, I’m still happy because I know there’s another break in the clouds on the way!

    I was very happy to see that no one says they’re always unhappy!

    I’ve been thinking about this lately, because I’m definitely not as happy as I would like to be and know that I should! I recently read “The Happiness Advantage.” I highly recommend it for anyone who is similarly interested in improving their positive outlook on life!

    I would not describe myself as a happy person overall, no.

    I’m not unpleasant to others, I’m just not very bubbly. I feel like I always have something on my mind or something we’re dealing with.

    I’ve always been this way, and I think it stems from my unstable upbringing. I’ve always had to be on my toes, planning my next move.
