We all have different ideas on what makes us happy: friends; acquisitions; status; success; power; satisfying curiosity etc. etc.
I rate the first and last of these highest.

Holding my wife and youngest son in a big hug - swiftly followed by being in the company of my family and the grandchildren in particular.

So far everyone's requirements for happiness seem quite modest and reasonable.
If only everyone outside this forum were so content we might have a better world! It just occurred to me that maybe self-hate and lack of self-esteem are two of the biggest obstacles to gaining happiness - or maybe just a big ego is the main problem.Wink

That's going back a bit! I remember that advert with a famous Bach piece of music, if I'm not mistaken.
Mind you, speaking of Hamlet, the irony is that he was a tormented and far from happy man.WinkSad

Hmm. The trouble is that in my limited experience of alchohol, it doesn't last!
