    Serious post. 68mudstud's thread got me thinking about this and I've been asking my friends tonight and I'm getting some interesting (and valid IMO) answers.

    Thoughts?

    Happiness?

    1) my wife
    2) enough money that I could do whatever i want and never work again
    3) working on / driving my rig.

    pretty much all I need.

    Happiness for me is just the basics, brother:

    - Spending quality time with my family

    - Being healthy

    - Having enough money to keep a roof over my head and to feed my family

    - Having a good social support network

    All the rest of the stuff is just just "fluff". The funny thing is, the "fluff" is usually the stuff we spend most of our time worrying about, and only when the **** hits the fan do we realize just how unimportant it really is........:thinking:

    The conscious knowledge that things could always be worse really keeps me up daily. Other than that, being able to support myself, and lend a hand to those who need it, whether or not I know them.

    Ooh, and being comfortable with who I am. That's right up there at the top of the list.

    Happiness for me is being at the lake on a long weekend, being with the people I love, and enjoying the warm summer temps.

    Also appears when something I am working on with regards to the truck goes smoothly, and works properly the first time, lol :D

    Hmmm

    Most of my true and lasting happiness comes from my family.

    I think for my self to be truly happy I would have to have a great family (I do) be healthy (I am not) and be able to help poeple, not much better feeling than being able to help out someone who needs it. So 2 out of 3 aint bad

    My personal relationship with God comes first.
    My health comes second....Good physical health is worth more than most realize.
    Good harmony with family.....
    Good relationships with close friends.
    Stuff is just stuff....if I don't have the above the stuff really don't mean much to me.

    to me its that feeling of not having a care in the world, and not an once of weight on your shoulders.

    The time i feel the most happy is when im driving my truck down the highway just at dusk, shes driving and running as perfect as can be, puttin out a perfect exhuast note, and i dont have a certain time i have to arive at my destination. at that point in time everything is right in my world.

    Lately it's been sitting on the couch watching something interesting with the dog cuddling with me.

    Next would be a job...lost mine on Friday.

    The bigger picture would be a good job that I don't hate, finish my education in something I like and can use, being financially stable enough to pay the bills and enjoy my hobbies without my wife and I worrying, and live somewhere that it doesn't snow.
    I'm working on all of it but right now none of it is happening according to plan.:doah:
