What does it taste like, being happy? Is it a feeling void of any worry?
I don’t know if I’ll remember, but it makes me think of museums with albino crocodiles and long car rides over the Golden Gate Bridge.
I think of my father when I was four.
That’s being happy to me.

Happiness is not a fish you can catch. Easily, that is. You have to toil hard in the rolling waves of the rough ocean. Bait your hook well, and wait. Patience is a must.

The question am I happy haunts me
She made me happy
Or did the idea of her make me happy
I felt her.i know that much
But i dont know if its these feelings or the idea of not being alone that are shackeld to my heart
I am the bane of my own distance
I wish i had the courage
Or no empathy
To hurt those around me
So i can shackle my heart off the ground

Happy was something I was never really familiar with. I had brief stints with it, but they never lasted long. When I met Aaron, however, that changed. He made me view the world differently, forced me to be positive for once in my life. When he tore that apart, I plummeted into a dark place, but in the end, he gave me lasting happiness.
After all, anything looks like heaven when you’ve been through hell.

What words have we
for something as complex as /happiness/?
Our world is bounded by our
McDonald’s happy-meal toys
Elmo, Sesame Street smiles.

What I search for, and live for. In a never ending game of hide and seek. Its riches fill me with pride, and its absence leaves me devoid of life.
Why so fickle? Could I not just simply grasp you? Hold you like a lover?
If you were mine, the world would be yours.
Together, you and I; it just seems right.
Yet the miseries of life seem to turn us both onto different paths.

i don’t even think i hardly know the meaning f the word. It’s a very fleeting emotion. Can come in large bursts of energy and can be gone quicker than i can fall asleep. My tip for getting there the easiest: smoke weed.

Her face felt weak, which was interesting enough as far as faces go. Usually they could feel numb, as if there was winter nipping at one’s cheeks. This was not one of those cases. She was happy, eternally so, yet every muscle and lacking ounce of effort weighed her wrinkled skin down with the gravity of her age.

What is possible? I never knew. Until that day, I never realized what I was capable of. The powers inside of me. The pain and fear, I could cause.
Within myself, I had always known. There was a silent humming, deep within. A quiet yearning for more, slowly increasing into a scream, a plea for greatness. I looked up, and stared intently at the eyes falling upon my glowing body. No fear remained in my gaze, and no pain.
I smirked slightly, filled with an unknown emotion. I could feel the power. I could feel the rejuvenation of my life.
This was it. My story begins here.
( This was my entry for, “possible”, before I had an account. And I just want it on my account now)
I’m not sure why it made me so happy; all I know is that I wanted to keep on shaking that snow globe all day.

Honestly, I’d forgotten what it meant. To be happy, to smile without it meaning nothing. I’d forgotten everything, but it came back, in a flash. Like lightning.
The storm, the darkness and the cold rain was my happiness. I found comfort in the things that make others depressed, but instead I danced in the puddles and sang. I was finding happiness again.
By Celly URL on 10.07.2012
Happy only means one thing to me. He was golden and loyal and strong! He would never back down and never leave me disappointed. He was my best friend for a long time! Happiness by any other definition would only be illusion to me! I only bank my hopes on Joy!!!

happy something people wants to be but couldn’t get it easily because they stress themselves trying to have happiness. It is something to look for.
By aldous santos on 10.08.2012
I don’t understand why the world is not happy. The birds are singing, the trees are swaying. Why can we not be happy. Why can we not sing and dance to the wind. Why can we not be enveloped in the music blasting from our speakers. Why can we not love. Why can we not be happy.
By Mackenzie on 10.08.2012
You can never really appreciate happiness until you have felt sad, it makes this whole thing bearable I guess.
By Josie Todd on 10.08.2012
Happy is an oddity, an unexpected, unpredictable emotion that can sneak up on you and grab you from behind. It shakes you and cries out ‘Stop being so miserable, your life is good, embrace it!’ It is a feeling of content, of wholeness, of vivaciousness, of verve.
By Aine Ruth on 10.08.2012
To be happy or not to be happy. Happy on the inside or happy on the outside,……or both. Happy was a dwarf, was he happy all the time. Or was he sometimes grumpy. Was grumpy always grumpy, or was he sometimes happy?

I don’t know if people really feel this past a certain point in their lives. Maybe its an event, maybe its an age. I think its turned into a myth, like being satisfied, no one can be satisfied. But it’s a good idea. It’s a writing topic. It’s something that I would paint. But not find. I won’t find it.

sun set at the end of the day. Sunrise with a beautiful girl. A life worth living, a life with purpose. Fun, joy, friends, family and fulfillment of dreams. Adventure, money, spirituality.
By Anurag Kumar on 10.08.2012
I like to be happy in the world of happy
happy dosen’t came from nothing it come when you help people and when yu think you are in the right way
By ahmad on 10.08.2012
To be happy is not dependant on one’s sense of position or possession. It is about one’s passion of person.
By Kara on 10.08.2012
”How can you say that? You even had the nerve to look happy.”
She marched off to the left, leaving a view and the silence behind her. I waited watching the approaching storm, smiling.
By Meredyth URL on 10.08.2012
Maybe a condition. Maybe a mental image. Doesn’t need approval. The only true release. The only true feeling you can’t force. If you’re happy, you’re happy. As simple as that.

A doll gazed back at the girl as she peered through the shop window. Unable to resist its golden ringlets and sky blue eyes, she tugged at her mother’s arm and asked for some money.
She received it.

loving life. music. flowers. sun. dancing. smiling. people. laughing. seeing people succeed. talent. being by myself.

happiness is a warm gun. i don’t think i’m truly happy….i bought a book “the art of happiness”, hopefully I’ll find something in it to really make me happy. I don’t know what will become of it, but I guess we’ll see where it goes.
By Erin on 10.08.2012
I haven’t been feeling happy the past few days. I just want to spend time with my girlfriend. It is driving me crazy. Happiness is fading from me and I hate it so much. I want it back in my life.
By D on 10.08.2012
What does this mean to one person? Love, wealth, family? Happiness can never been defined. Nor forgotten. Some grasp happiness until they smother it, then they stand there with a dead, lifeless happiness in their arms that they know they killed. They’ll never forgive themselves..
By Amarie URL on 10.08.2012
She said she was happy, but it was a poisonous happy — a happy despite, a happy because without the happy she’d wither away into despair. A happy because if she stopped moving with the raw energy her happiness generated, she’d die.

“Are you happy?”
“What kind of question is that?” she asks, looking from his arm around her shoulder up towards his chin. He doesn’t look at her, his gaze fixed over the wide expanse of grass and wildflowers.
“An honest one. Are you happy here?”
She thinks for a moment before settling into his arms. “I think so.”
By Brill URL on 10.08.2012
It was unexpected this sense of happiness. Who would have thought somebody as different, outside her experience would fufill her needs with such ease.
By jimmmyc1955 on 10.08.2012
That wonderful feeling you get when everything is going your way. Also occurs when with people you care about, like friends and family. The desirable state of emotional being. A goal in life – to be happy. Often shown by smiling, laughter and not being sad.

[One sentence] I just wanted to be happy, I thought as I sat at the end of the bench watching him walk off and ending our long standing relationship with each other, leaving the world, our old world behind us along with all the memories and events that had transpired to make us the team, and couple in fact that we were meant to be, making it hard to believe that he would choose this decision, as if leaving just to prove he could keep me safe but instead felt like he was doing just the opposite.
By Laura Riddle on 10.08.2012
If you’re happy and you know it clap your hands!
Well I’m not happy
NOPE NOPE NOPE
I have to retake FCAT today.
You’d think they would learn
I AM IN 11th GRADE! I DONT NEED THIS ANYMORE
Probably not the happy quick write people were expecting. Well boo hoo. LOL

Elizabeth was happy to see Samuel. They haven’t been around each other for two hours. It was silly, she knew it, but she couldn’t stop thinking about him. She loved him with all she was so she just whished she was with him everyday.

happy? ??? I never fell happy unless Thc is involved

He’s dead. After so long, after so many sacrifices, he’s finally dead! Though strangely, the thief-turned-murderer felt nothing. He didn’t even feel happy. He was numb all over. What other purpose does he have now that the man is dead? He slowly walked away from the wreckage and wandered into the forest, his wolf slowly trailing behind him.
By Will on 10.08.2012
I am happiest when I am with my family. Sitting with babies in my lap and banana in my hair, there is peace and excitement. I love to watch them grow. I love seeing them discover what makes them happy. Everyone is different, and even as young as my niece and nephew are, there are definite things that make them happy or unhappy.
By Samantha on 10.08.2012
Sunshine, apples and cloudy sunsets. Seeing something unexpected in nature. Compassion on the bus and eating too much cherry pie. Smiles of the ones I love. Feeling content with the different realms of my life.
