What is the "key" to happiness?

Report as

Personally, I think the "key" to happiness is love and family! Love makes the world go around and having a good family to love makes life happy ! I must admit, I love to be loved and to love others. Plus I love my kids and they always help me out when I'm down. Love and family are the "key" to happiness.

MrJohnWayne, don't be embarrassed! You're just the life of the party!
Hi, Twin! I'm okay just tired of doctor's offices! I had to take Mom in to see a hand specialist. Yesterday I took my son to the doctor. Sheesh, that's it!! :) How are you?
Report as
Diane and witte ! Too big nuts but I love ya both ! Yes ma'am, I do ! witte, you're incredible. Thank you two for being my friends! That means a lot to me !
Report as
Thanks friend!!:0).
Twin, them Docs do wear you out! Hurry up and wait.. their specialty!:(.
How is Mom's hand? Son ok?
Me? Hanging in there... still "foggy".

My son is having bad back pain and stomach pain. He was afraid it was his appendix, but it wasn't. He'll be okay.
Mom had good news and bad news. The good news is no surgery!!! The bad news is the er doctor didn't stitch her nail on right. She stitched it on for protection and told her she would not have a nail any longer. The specialist said if they had put the nail back under the skin, it would discourage scar tissue build up and maybe she'd have a nail. So, he took out a few stitches, made an incision, tucked the nail under the skin, and stitched her up again. I was impressed with this doctor.
Twin, what does your doctor say about your fogginess?
Report as
Glad to hear news on both Son and Mom mostly positive:0).
Aaahh fogginess... uhhh.. ha,ha.. just kidding.. Don't know, but I go for 2nd round of durn botox shots next week, then this new(old) Doc actually seems to
"Get it", he had some interesting ideas on approaching individual debillitating symptoms, rather than magically trying to "Fix" the whole shebang( pretty unlikely). So? shall see if this second treatment works a bit better, and then we'll start trying a few things to target the dizzy-foggy-eye-halo-aura...
I'll be happy if I can just plan one single day knowing I will be able to make it through! Now that is happiness! ha,ha...

Report as
I ain't no friggin jock ! Dang kid had to say that for whatever reason and I don't think I've ever been so red-faced, ma'am ! I do love you too! You both have boosted my spirits so much ! I can't thank either of you enough.
Report as
SarcasticAndSweet
I still can't figure out why he called you a Jock, lol! Anyone can look at your pic and know that's not the truth. No thanks needed. You boost my spirits too.
Report as
I don't know if I or witte has told you my home and life situation, but you two have been a real booster to me ! I shall not forget !

Good morning!:0). You two up allready? or still?

Did you sleep at all?

A couple of hours ! Talked to Doc Winn on his cell in Florida, and he has a meeting set up with him and I with the Kaiser surgeon. He's taking me as Liz can't be bothered.

Good news! When is the appointment?

Next Thursday morning. I hate going through this alone. I'm hurting bad inside !

Bob, witte has told me nothing. She is a good confidante and tells no secrets! It doesn't matter, though, I'm here for you! If you only knew how many days I've been down and you've brought a smile to my face. You, sir, are a true friend!

Twin, I wake up about 3:00 and then 5:20 every morning! It's a habit I can't seem to shake. Even at those times. Even when I don't get to bed early, I still wake up at those times. It's a curse, lol.
Report as
Thank you ! Finding out I have cancer and a wife who can't stand me anymore has put me on rock bottom. This all hurts so bad !
Report as
SarcasticAndSweet
Either one by itself would knock a person to rock bottom. Together it will be tough. Right now I'm saying prayers for you and sending a big fluffy Blankie your way. I'm sorry, but you know what? We'll be here with you. Even through this heart breaking time, I can see your courage and kindness in your conversation.
Is it wrong of me to say I'd like to kick a certain woman into next week? She certainly has bad timing. Okay that's all I'll say about that part.
Report as
You made me smile ! Oh she had told me a while back and I've been putting up a front on here. Then the cancer and I'm wasted. 3 maybe 4 years. It sure would be nice to be loved when I go ! You two are great ! witte and her husband have been like a brother and sister to me through this. When we talk on mail, she is always so supportive. I'll use that blankie ! LOL....

Here's a funny for both of you! My mother is a retired nurse but she always wished she could be a teacher. You may or may not know that she is a bit controlling in a nice way. So every year she helps me get my classroom ready. We just got here to work some more and I went up to ask the principal something. His secretary was talking to me and my Mom decides enough is enough. She tells me in front of everyone that it's time to get to work. This isn't the first time. I swear she may stay home next year! I just laughed and finished my conversation. I really don't want to be disrespectful, but...
Report as
Just be happy that you still have your Mom ! Not a day goes by that I don't think about mine!
Report as

Good point, sir! Thank you for the reminder. :) You probably really wish for her right now.

This is what makes people happy: having all primary relationships in good shape. And not having people in your life that use you and drag you down.

You said the "key," which is often left under the doormat in cartoons. The character uses the key to unlock the door.

Being free of negativity in your life. No one is responsible for your happiness but you. Realizing this and applying it to your life frees you to actually be happy.

Trying to make the best of whatever situation in which we find ourselves. You take what life chooses to toss at you, and deal with it the best you're able. That's all any of us can do.

The foundation to happiness is, I think, living a life that allows you to have self respect. Everything else with family and friends etc. can be happily added.

I agree Ravin. Loving yourselves for the good that you see yourself do in life gives you a high self esteem which prevents negative factors knocking your feet out from under you.

friends that will always be there,and would never leave,never backstab or lie, never steal. y'know a real friend. a friend whois honest,kind and innocent.a friend that will always be there, that will give you the needed company when you cry, a friend who is there when you feel lonely. a friend to talk to when you want to talk to somebody. a friend who would be by your side and help you when someone bullies you. so id say friends are the key to happiness

Believing in yourself. Without that you will flounder in life & never believe you will or deserve to reach your full potential. Loving yourself is part of being lovable to others.

Always keep going. I have a friend that's mom left, her sister died, and you know what? She kept going. Enjoy life, cause one day it could be gone. Love yourself... You were given YOU. So protect yourself like a new ipad, cause you're irriplacable.
