Being happy doesn’t mean that everything is perfect. Being happy means _______.

And don’t give me the cookie-cutter answer. I will mock you if you do.

    Being happy means you see everything, good or bad, as perfectly fitting.

    I thought of this this morning, but didn’t have time to post until now… Not a final answer by any means, just a stab at it.

    Being happy means accepting the things you can’t change.

    …choosing to be happy.

    Oh, and Thomas, I’ve been at freaking camp for a month, so that’s why I haven’t been available. As far as Breakaway things in Georgia, man, I don’t know what there is or if there is such a thing there. But God is doing stuff everywhere, I’m sure there are plenty of places to get plugged in and plug stuff in for them. :)

    hmm . . . this accepting the things you cannot change is pretty stoic (

    Ok Mr. Fancy Pants, give us your beloved philosophy answer and put all of that money spent on good IL philosophy to use.

    …finding a way to be content in everything.

    basically what everyone else already said.

    being happy means….making the best of every situation.

    example; you are stuck in a really long line and it could either suck or you could just use the extra time to do something else — like pick your nose.
