happiness V. contentment

happiness is the quality or state of being happy.

contentment is being satisfied with what one is or has; not wanting more or anything else.

in a way, you can know that you are content when you can be happy for someone else even when you are not doing that good.

a friend of mine got a video game one time... it was called Metal Gear. this was years ago... and it was for the original nintendo. i had wanted that game since it came out. when he got it, he came over to show me he got it. i was so jealous.

i wasn't content. i was not content with the games i had.

perhaps i've neglected to dig deeper into one of the main areas of interest in this posting... Happiness. what is it to be happy?

I want you to tell me what it is to be happy.

we will be discussing this in class wednesday night.

Blog Note: Thanks to for the definitions used above.
