Happiness is a mental or emotional state of well-being characterized by positive or pleasant emotions ranging from contentment to intense joy. A variety of biological, psychological, religious, and philosophical approaches have striven to define happiness and identify its sources.

Wikipedia Happiness: Various research groups, including Positive psychology, endeavor to apply the scientific method to answer questions about what "happiness" is, and how we might attain it. Philosophers and religious thinkers often define happiness in terms of living a good life, or flourishing, rather than simply as an emotion. Happiness in this sense was used to translate the Greek Eudaimonia, and is still used in virtue ethics. Happiness economics suggests that measures of public happiness should be used to supplement more traditional economic measures when evaluating the success of public policy.

Angel oracle: Laugh at life. Who rests in his own happiness, can laugh at the chaos of life. The angel of humor. He lives the joy. He makes jokes. He sees life as a game. Be positive as you go through the day. Do not take things too seriously. Today you can be a little wild and crazy. Have fun. :-) :-) ;-) :-)

Men and women

Nils: Men and women are different. There is no doubt about it. But rather than focus on the negative characteristics of men and women, why not praise the positives? Let's start with the women: women are compassionate, caring, and socially. Women cry when they are happy. Women bring joy and laughter in this world. Women are kind and loyal. They will not give up under any circumstances to get for the best for their children. Women have the ability to smile when they are so tired that she can hardly stand up. They know how to make a simple meal into a feast. They know how to comfort a sad friend. They know how to deal with children for endless hours! They know how to give a man the feeling to be king. Women make the world to a happier place.

Sybilla: WOW. Thank you .... ;-)) That feels really good just now!

Sonja: ..... Thaaaaaaaaaank you. Dear Nils, you nearly were a man to marry. Lol :)))

Nils: Alll my ten ex-women had an other point of view!
