Are You Happy?

It's a simple question. It's an opening for self-reflection. It's an opportunity for exposure or an invitation to conversation. It's interpretable: Do you want to answer it from a "right this moment" perspective, or "generally speaking"?

I ask, Are you happy?

yes. could i be happier? maybe, if i had more money and didn't fret about bills and taxes. but i am not sure that would make me happier.

at this second in time, i am happy with my relationship, happy with my child and happy that i made an awesome dinner. i am not happy with my mother, i am unhappy with my spine injury which is inching towards surgery, and i am unhappy with my career. i can live with pain, not talking to my mother. i can't live with being unhappy with my spousem child or my ability to care for thenm. Therefore, overall, where it matters most, I am happy.

i do not think it is possible to be happy with every aspect of our lives at the same time. part of beign human is not being content with being content.

Yes, I may be home alone on a Saturday night but I bought a pair of pants today that fit me perfectly so I can't help but be happy.

If you are healthy and not happy, then you're a self indulgent pig.

That's my attitude on happiness.
