Happiness is a state of mind achieved by an appreciation and joy found in the simple things; a smile, a sunset, the company of a good friend, etc. Happiness is also knowing and truly liking who you've evolved to be as a person...it's an acceptance of the constant changes we experience as human beings and is the result of an inner peace and balance. So, to sum it all up, I'd have to say that happiness is the art of keeping life simple and balanced, liking who you are, having an appreciation for the little things, and an acceptance for change and growth...and yes, I believe that I am a happy person, and I think that everybody has the potential to be happy, even those people who are alone, because being alone and being lonely are two different things; I was once very lonely and yet I was surrounded by people. People who are alone can definitely achieve happiness too. Happiness does not depend on other people, you cannot find it 'outside' of yourself, it is found 'inside' of yourself. I hope that you are happy, and if not, I'm hoping that I've helped you to find out how to become happy...Best Wishes!
