After reading the article, “How Happy Are You? A Census Wants to Know” got me thinking as to what truly makes someone happy. I believe everyone views happiness in a different way. They believe if they have a certain life or have certain things they will be happy. I do believe people may see things and believe if they have it they too will be happy but it doesn’t always work that way. A lot of other factors can contribute to someones level or scale of happiness. If they may be in a tough spot with money or their job they may not feel as happy, but if everything is going well for a person their level of happiness will be much higher than someone who is going through bad times. But then again there are some people who have everything and are not happy and only give the illusion of happiness. i truly people everyone has different things that make them happy, we may have similarities of what can make one happy but everyone is different. Living in todays society you have to find your own happiness, I do believe everyone has a chance at it if they believe they do.
