Can you ever truly be happy in your life?

This is something I think about a lot. Are you truly happy in your life? Or is there something you'd change?

I would change sooo much. I'd be thinner. I'd have more money and be more financially responsible. I'd make better choices in life. I'd go back to school and do something that I was really passionate about -- like maybe law school? Or be an English teacher. I'd be a better parent to my children. I'd be more patient and yell less.

I'd dress nicer and care more about what I looked like. I wouldn't wear my ratty sneakers to work. I'd wear jewelry sometimes (but only sometimes, because I think wearing jewelry everyday is over doing it).

I'd take the babies to Tot Shabbat every other Friday like I set out to, instead of when the mood strikes me. I'd work on teaching them more about the Jewish holidays at home so they have some idea of what's going on.

I'd teach my children there's more to life than what they currenly believe, and to reach for every dream they've ever imagined...

I bet even the happiest person in the world can think of something they could change if they had the power to. what would you change? Or would you stay exactly the same you were?

want what you have! i think about changing things all the time but if you were able to, you wouldn't be who you are today, you wouldn't be where you are today. some of your biggest gripes at this point in life are really not such a big deal in the grand scheme of things =)

Could i be luckier and have more material possessions and have more education...sure. Could i be happier? No. Happiness is a state of mind, its not what you do or what you have.
