Are You Happy?

As a recently retired teacher, I've thought a LOT about happiness. I was raised to be a good student, good worker, good teacher, and a good person. But even though I tried really hard to follow these ideas, sometimes it causes me STRESS. It seems like when I try to be a good person, I turn out to be stressed out from the effort it takes. But when I'm happy, I feel really good and positive. What makes me happy is when I achieve something that I hoped for and can enjoy it with friends and family. So the big question is: Are you Happy???
