    Maybe *you* can't be truly happy. I'm pretty sure that happiness is unmeasurable and subjective, so we can only speak for ourselves and our own true happinesses.

    I have sometimes found my life to be sorta more or less idyllic... but then I am driven to do something to shake it up. I don't really relate to the word as a positive thing... Without some kind of conflict there is no change, without change there is no growth... without growth??... There is eternal shortness...

    Long live the short... ahem, nevermind..

    I love change (to some extent) and am afraid of perfection... Perfection is soul death or ascension or something.... While I would like to be movin' on up,(makin more duckets), I don't think I am ready to ascend. Not ready for stagnant idyllic, maybe a kind of challenging stimulating dynamic idyllic...

    I think it's ones hope to describe life as idyllic, but really I think that is where we are going, what we are aiming for our hope for the future so to speak. Yes there are moments that I can definitely say that my life is idyllic, but really, it would be an oxymoron to expect that. *sigh*

    Oh, my life is incredibly idyllic. I have no worries, problems nor obligations. It's fantastic.

    My life is overall better now than ever in the past. However, there are certain things I treasure deeply that are slipping away each day, and that's not good. No-sir-ee-bob!!

    To me, idyllic describes situations more than people. Is my life idyllic? No, no, and a final no. I truly doubt it'll one day become "idyllic". Actually when that time comes, perhaps it's time for me to move on again... or that I've gotten to be so old that I can't anymore... so might as well be a bum. That's idyllic for me. Life of a bum... well maybe a happy well-fed bum. But a bum nonetheless.

    Although I have to say like Toonia that yes, some parts of my life have improved. Life isn't about moments of misery. There's good parts, and there are bad ones... Just got to ride it all out. Happyiness is an emotion... internally derived. There's no such thing as "objective emotion". If you do not believe you can ever be happy, then it'll never exists for you.

    There isn't anything I feel entitled to complain about my life, although it isn't 'perfect', but why should it be? My inner self has a constant ache, a bittersweetness that is a constant. It comes to the foreground at those moments my mind is clear and subdued.
