Good Monday morning! My name is Lauren & I'm a happy recovering alcholic/addict. I've been thinking about happiness. It is what you make of it. Time spent unhappy is time wasted. Here is another quote I like. "Happiness is appreciating what you have, not getting what you want." I have been more happy now in my life than ever. I am so blessed with a wonderful husband and two great kids. They have loved me unconditionally. Happiness is a journey not a destination. It is not a point that you get it to and that is it. It is an everyday thing. I am the only person that can make myself happy. I am ultimately responsible for how I feel. If I choose to be miserable in my life, that's where I will stay. If I choose to be happy, life will get better. I have nothing more now than I did when I was drinking, but I am happy. I am happy with what I do have, because I could have lost it all. I should have lost it all. But being in the place I was before, emotionally and pshycologically, I was never going to be happy. I have full appreciation for what I have today. And I do not want to lose that. On that note, that's all I have today. Have a great one!

You are very right. I also believe that you have to surround yourself with positive people even if it means to let go of the "friends" we have had in the past.
