Happiness for 2009

Watched Oprah…I never watch Oprah. Her guest was Robert Holden from the Happiness Project.

First, take the Happiness Test.  I scored a 28…and I'm not sure that I'm that happy as defined by them.  I would think that definition would be much more complicated than a simple test like this.

I was also so turned off by the fact that the entire site is selling stuff – books, CD's, seminars…on happiness. Yikes! Are we really to think that we can purchase happiness?

Nevertheless, the question is an important one to consider. How satisfied are you? Below are the five points that the test asks you to rate.

1. In most ways, my life is close to ideal.

2. The conditions of my life are excellent.

3. I am satisfied with my life.

4. So far I have gotten the important things I want in life.
5. If I could live my life over, I would change almost nothing.

I would love to hear what other people think.

HAPPY New Year!!!
