The Happiness Hypothsis written by Jonathan Haidt says happiness comes from between... we are hive creatures.. when we get our relationships right with people and things and something larger than ourselves... a sense of purpose and meaning will emerge...happiness.

happiness...is what we make it...how we see things...following our heart...doing what 'makes' us happy...

YES!! happiness USED TO BE a big roll of duct tape for me...but i've (kinda...almost...)learned that MY happiness comes from within...

i'm trying anyway... :]
