Welcome to this week’s edition of Aloha Friday. In Hawaii, Aloha Friday is the day that we take it easy and look forward to the weekend. So I thought that on Fridays I would take it easy on posting, too.

Therefore, I’ll ask a simple question for you to answer. Nothing that requires a lengthy response. If you’d like to participate, just post your own question on your blog and leave your link below. Don’t forget to visit the other participants! It’s a great way to make new bloggy friends!

So my question is . .

What’s the secret to being happy?

    Happiness is found within ourselves. Money can’t buy it. The people in our lives can’t give it to us. We have to be happy within before we can be happy with our circumstances.
    But NY sure does help!!! LOL

    Family and friends that you can trust is the secret to my happiness.

    Keeping an optimistic attitude. Like Cathi said, no one can make us happy except ourselves. :)

    Being content. Being satisfied. Not always wanting, doing, having MORE.

    I guess it to be contented with what we have and also work towards what we need.

    I think it’s not letting other people define who you are. I have been trying to teach my teenage daughters this.

    Not sure but I think loving your self first.

    Auntie E says:

    Having a love for Christ and have a compassionate heart for others. I think if one does not have a meaning to life then they will not have a happy heart.

    I don’t think there is a secret to finding happiness, most of the time it finds you.

    Happy Friday! There is no SECRET to being happy! Just reach inside yourself and be a good, caring, loving person ~ The things that define happiness are different for every person!

    Having a spiritual life is the secret to happiness. Also, living your life, not just existing.

    Being contented with what you have at all times, even when life is going great or bad. Just being contented.

    For me, it’s important that I run in the morning. I think it’s a chemical thing as well as an anti-depressant.

    Have a great day!

    I’ve been looking for the answer to that for a lifetime. I personally think you find happiness in a child’s smile. Working hard, and accomplishing your goals in your life, and of course loving yourself first so you can love someone else.
