despite alot of things that could be better-i am fairly happy. i am incredibly greatful that i have 4 wonderful children, a flexible job and some awesome friends!


I am fairly happy right now, we have a few worries, but nothing I don't think we can work out. I think we do spend a lot of time on the wants instead of what we have. That is what I really need to work on.


Good post! I am very happy with my life right now. I have a fantastic husband who is my best friend and a cute dog! I have a great job, a house to live in, and food to eat. I do, as does everyone else, have obstacles in my life including bad health problems with my legs and back and trouble trying to have a baby. But I know God is in control and in charge, so I couldn't be happier. As Heather said, it's all about perspective and what you do with your life.


i just quit my job, and as i've said on my blog already, i'm the happiest right now that i've ever been. there are always 'little things' that seem to pop up here and there, but that's just life. i have an amazing life right now, great kids and a supportive husband. i am doing what i want to do and working toward the other things i want. so life's good! great thoughts, michelle. i'd love to meet your happy family too!

You are right, I think that we can control our own happiness. I think if we constantly dwell on things that we wish we had or want, then it can definitely bring us down. I can think of a few people right now who can never be happy in that moment. They are constantly thinking about what better is to come. They always need something better to look forward to. Personally, that is just not the way I look at life.

Yes, I am happy. I have a healthy little gir, a supportive husband/best friend, a roof over my head and food to eat. We have a nice life and I definitely appreciate it.

You know when I appreciate what I have the most? When I am watching the news and I see all these other countries living the way they do and treating the women and children the way they do. It just makes me so sad.

BTW....Happy Anniversary! Hope you guys are able to get out and celebrate.


i consider myself a pretty happy person. i have a great husband (on most days - hahaha), a healthy little dude that brigtens each day, a job, a house, a comfortable life. i have great family and friends. sure, there are things that have came up that have been a bit hard to deal with, but i deal with the issue and move on.

live each day to the fullest. no regrets.

I consider myself an overall happy person...I don't let too much get me down. My job situation each spring is what usually takes its biggest toll on me (but not this year!)...I consider myself lucky for having so many good things going for me in my life (but I work hard at it too!)


I just read on Kristi's blog that today is your anniversary...........Happy Anniversary!! Hope you have a great day :)


You do have a lot to be happy about right now, you happy little momma!! :)

I think I've spent most of my life being happy. I've gone through a couple of short bouts of depression, but even then, in general I knew to be thankful and "happy" as much as I could be about my situation. Mostly in the past 7 years, no matter my circumstances, I've been the happiest because of my husband... just knowing he is my constant and my best friend, that makes life better. We've been blessed tremendously in our life together, and I know that we're lucky to have each other and this family we've created and I choose to look at it that way even when we hit obstacles, problems, or frustrations in how we think we want our life to be going.

Good thoughts Michelle... it's all in perspective and making the most of what we have where we're at.
