What is happiness?

What a wonderful life I've had. I only wish I'd realized it sooner.
(Colette G. was the pen name of the French novelist Sidonie-Gabrielle Colette)

I saw this quote on the wonderful "happiness project" blog by Gretchen and it really made me think! I need to recognise and value my wonderful life as I live it.

This quote reminds me of its flipside:
I've lived a long time and had many troubles, most of which never happened.
Mark Twain

Our brains are so powerful - we need to focus on the positive and on the here and now :-)
