Default Got happy?

So, let's talk happiness. I think for alot of people its sort of elusive, a thing that's just beyond our grasp or somehow we'd instantly be cheery and well with the world if our external circumstances changed for the better.

As far it goes, I think we all have a set point that makes up part and then the other half is basically our choice to change our mind/perspective about being happy. Some might think its a pipe dream, however I really believe its becoming happier from our core isn't so far fetched at all. On a happiness scale how would you rate yourself? (Not just on what's going on right now in your life, but on the whole/average)

So what does it mean to be happy to you?

For me it's peace of mind, a feeling of lightness or weightlessness, having a connection to others and a Higher Source than myself, feeling compassion and practicing forgiveness (oooh how the that's hard!). I feel that no matter what's going on in my life, happiness can be an anchor. Even in bad times I know deep down that I will weather the storm and can land on even keel sooner or later...cause hey! My joy? The world didn't give it, the world can't take it away.
