The truth about happiness

What makes us happy? Ever tried to recall a time when you were "really" happy? I am sure you are scratching your head by now or leaning back on your spinning arm chair, wondering if spinning will help in reminiscing of happy days. Even if you did remember, try to think for how long you were happy. Does being glad for a short span constitute happiness? For me happiness has a direct relation to being content. Correct me if I am wrong, but who, in this materialistic world, is really content?

This bring me back to my first question, What makes us happy? Wait, don't answer that. Its a rhetorical question. I would tell you my version of happiness, but that will make you laugh.

Forgive me if it is abruptly ended. But while I was writing this, my wife called and nature called. I have to attend the latter first.
