    ....between being content and being truly happy? Is contentment god enough, or do you constantly try to seek what will make you truly happy? What if obtaining it isn't necessarily in your realm of control?

    Deeps thoughts wth luv. Sorry.

    Excellent question luv; for me it's my faith and through what I know is an uncharacteristic mistake you have actually touched on my answer here. Through God I find both contentment and true happiness. Not trying to conduct Sunday School here; just answering the question. :)

    Day to day for me. I don't look for "true happiness" I just take it one day at a time!! Beer by beer!! They say that true happiness is in a full case of Budweiser!!
    The only reason a beer sweats around Canada is because he's decided it will be the next beer he drinks.

    If you aren't looking for true happiness, then you probably already have it.

    Is there really such a thing as true happiness? That would mean we would have to be in a blissful state all the time.
