Thread: Being Happy

  1. #121
    Tonight, happiness is a long shower that gets me squeaky clean and cooled down after the heat of the day, then sliding into a bed made up with fresh, clean linens (everything from the mattress pad to the comforter).

    Actually being able to sleep for more than a hour would be *such* a bonus...

    I know everyone's situation is different by all means. I don't expect everyone to understand because of this, but life is what you make of it, regardless.
    Oh how I envy your joy of life...I am not there yet...maybe someday...and, I remember my life BEFORE and it was a lot better than this...at least I could hold my grandchildren in my lap!

    Happiness- everyone's goal. I just read a Harvard study that is soooo interesting. I highly recommend it. http://www.theatlantic.com/doc/200906/happiness

    Misery is living with perfect health forever

    I've heard it said that true misery is if you had perfect health and were to live forever.

    That's a heavy thought to ponder, but after some thought, I agree. The secret to being happy is living in the NOW (no past - no future). If you lived forever, there would be no value for the joy of the current moment.

    Those with SCI or a chronic illness tend to appreciate each new sunrise and living in the NOW more than others. Despite my many difficulties, I feel blessed to have a greater appreciation for each new day and moment.

    What do you think??

    I think your right. Living in the NOW allows me to enjoy life, even when its raining shit I appreciate the moment because I understand the alternative.

    hi all

    I feel content bording on being happy, as I said I have AMD in my right eye going blind, if I get it in the other eye I kill myself

    I am really please that the UK justice system has just ruled that a spouse will not be committing an offence in an assisted killing

    So if I go blind I can go to Swizaland and die gently and in peace, with the woman I love so much by my side, and she will not be in any trouble.

    As sick as it sounds, I feel so much more happier,

    Love, health, and happyness is all that matters in life, anything else theres barclay card

    I have happy memories that I don't want to forget and I also enjoy looking forward to good things. I agree that it's important to appreciate the now, but don't agree that it is the ONLY happiness.

    Those with SCI or a chronic illness tend to appreciate each new sunrise and living in the NOW more than others.
    That has not been my observation. I have seen as much diversity in this area in people with disabilities as I have in AB people.

    If you get the chance to show someone that life post-SCI is different, but still living, that's a good feeling. It often happens unintentionally, but it's always a good thing.

    Pay It Forward! You'll never regret it.
