I really wanted to say yes. Especially since I'm in a better situation than I was in the past and have plenty of things that I'm fortunate for. However, I doubted whether that would have been a completely honest answer since it still feels like there's something missing or lacking. I'm not sure, but maybe it's time for a change of scenery or how I normally go about things. Small steps are a great way to start and I've already been doing more things than I had been doing a year ago. I've also been trying to change or adjust my attitude and behavior so let's see what 2016 will hold in store.

Couldn't really give an answer to this one. I've been through a lot of suffering constantly. Especially the past year. A lot of close ones have died, along with getting kicked out of the country my wife lives in.
I am very at peace with how I've reacted to the hardship I've constantly been through in the past 25 years. But that's not really the question...
So am I happy with where I am? No. I want to see some major changes in my circumstances and situations in a positive context.
Am I happy with WHO I am? Absolutely. I wouldn't change me for anything.

being happy means being  content and being content means you aren't trying to improve or excel.

Well put. I feel very similarly. Tho I also realize that I'm cursed to always chase the wind without a hope of ever catching it.

as with just about everything in life this question is one that transcends the simple answer of yes or no... am I happy in life.... yes I am happy with the majority of things... I have my soul mate as my wife, 4 beautiful (yet anger inducing at times) children whom with out my life would be so empty... I found myself realizing today that I do feel diminished with out my family, I was out and about running errands, and when I got out of the car to go into one of he stores i needed to go to, for a split second i put my hand out for one of my kids to take... none of them were with me. When i realized what i had done I felt kinda alone and well for lack of a better word... unhappy... So to stop my rambling I will simply say that in the big things of life, yes I am, but for many of the smaller things there is room for improvement, as there should be. I have no desire to stagnate... so yeah....ignore me....

Is there not ALWAYS room for improvement, though...?
PavSys Featured By Owner Nov 20, 2015
Seeking for constant improvement in your life is a trap. It creates an assumption of lack. Can you be happy just to "be?"

The question that sideshowsito asked is kind of a trick question. Are you happy now? Or do you have to be striving for something different, better, or more. If you are not happy now, what will make you happy later. Once you have achieved that happiness will you still want more?

The problem with "drive", "motivation", "accomplishment" is: When it is achieved, do you ever stop? Can you ever be at peace? "Are you happy?"

For me.... I'm always happy. If I am not then I do something about it.... Beyond that, if we do not push forward, not necessarily for "constant improvement" but for something more, then what are we here for? By "something more" I mean "something beyond ourselves" as this life is not just about us. We should strive to better the lives around us as well, as those lives influence ours in some fashion or form. Yes we can be happy just being, but if you just are then what is the point of life to begin with? I don't just want to be a speck adrift in space. The human kind, and all kinds on this planet, must continue to evolve or else we are just consumers. Take energy, feed energy.

Completely agree! Without ambition you will never achieve anything better

why do you ask?
D-Cranford Featured By Owner Nov 20, 2015
I have created the person I am today, and even though I am constantly striving to improve, I am happy with what I've done with my life so far and what I have achieved, so I voted a resounding YES!

Pretty much yeah, got some interesting travel booked soon and a job that is interesting, if somewhat weird. But looking at making a few changes by this time next year. Plus i have my eye on the new Canon 35mm L that was released recently....
Torvus Featured By Owner Nov 19, 2015
I am happy with where I'm at, yes. Do I still seek improvement? Also yes. Because that's how being human works.
Darkknight3434 Featured By Owner Nov 19, 2015
No I am not....I gave up someone who could have been awesome to stay in the same shit I hate being in out of responsibility.
Taka67 Featured By Owner Nov 19, 2015
I'm comfortable, I can't or shouldn't complain, but I wouldn't say I'm happy with everything, more on a personal level than career wise.

MissLaurelle Featured By Owner Nov 19, 2015  Professional Artist
