What would you "need" to achieve happiness?

Me? I'm very simple.

A easy, non-stressful job with good hours.

Enough money such that I'm not bothered with having to worry about things like cars, home repairs, bills,e tc.

Good health.

All else is icing on the cake.

    I've pretty much achieved happiness, at least as much as one can in today's America. I work from home, set my own hours, get to be with my dogs all day, have a gorgeous wife of 17 years, no children, which keeps us young, make decent money and have no car, car payments, or car insurance to worry about. I live in downtown L.A., next to Union Station, have access to all subway lines, commuter lines and Amtrack. My wife's car is paid off, so if we drive anywhere we have access to all L.A. freeways, as they all merge downtown, 1/2 block from where we live and we both plan on early retirement, hopefully next year. I'll be 58, she'll be 48. She has 24 years in with the L.A. county courts as a Court Reporter and can retire after 25 years with her full pension, 50% of our insurance paid for and a comfortable savings.

    Our health is good and as long as we don't have a devastating earthquake, which unfortunately we're way over due for, we'll be just fine.

    The only thing that would make me any happier would be for a Republican free America!

    True Happiness happens whenever we are not judging anything.

    Any time that you are not judging you are happy.

    The moment that you start judging, you find something to be unhappy about.

    It really is that simple.

    Maslow's hierarchy of needs pretty much sums up what would make me happy. That and my salvation.
