Ingredients to a Happy Life

It takes a hundred of wrong measurements, burnt desserts, and reused parchment papers to reach our taste bud's desire

In these past holidays, my twin sister and I have been trying to bake brownies, cakes and cookies for our family, as if we have experience in baking. My family really love desserts, I won’t lie and blame the cup of sugars if you heard that we had diabetes. It takes a hundred of wrong measurements, burnt desserts, and reused parchment papers to reach our taste bud’s desire but in the end, we just have to be contented and just be satisfied for all the blood and sweets we put on them. So because of that, I’ve come up with an ingredients to reach the happiness that we always want to have. Ingredients that we only really need to be pleased with the life that God gave to us.

  1. For me for your life to be happy just do what you love to do

    When we’re contented with what we have, we will be able to achieve the happiness that we seek.

  3. We should accept reality that we can’t always get what we want, that we should be contented of what we have. If it’s God’s will, it will surely happen. Just wait and trust God in everything.

  4. We have to experience sadness to achieve happiness. It may sound bittersweet but it’s true. It has to be balance all the time

  5. We cannot say that a person achieved or having a happy life with its material things and way of life. It’s a matter of thinking and being contented with the things that you have in your life no matter how expensive a person is living or how many a person is getting as long as (s)he is contented and feel loved and important by the person that he/she is treasuring the most.

  6. In order to achieve happiness we have to lose it. Because that’s the real happiness, if we think we gained it, we lost it.

  7. Marielle Bragado

    “Happiness is a always choice, if you will always look at the brightest side then you able to find your happiness.”

  8. for me you will achieve happiness if you know what you want in life

  9. For us to have a happy life, we just have to be contended on what we have. Always be positive no matter how tough the situation is.

    To achieve happiness, we must focus on the positive and put your wants into action.

  11. Happiness is a feeling, not about a certain thing so to speak. And life is really beautiful, we just have to learn how to appreciate and value it.

  12. For me to be able to achieve happiness, we should first accept ourselves and next to be contented on what we have. Happiness can achieve through that because being ourselves makes us happy.

  13. Stop focusing how stress you are and remember how blessed you are. The only way for us to achieve the happiness we want is to be contented of what we have.
    -Marilou Mae Amparo

  14. Be contented! but still it depends on how people perceive what happiness is because in this world full of unknown there is no definite meaning of happiness.

  15. To be content doesn’t mean you don’t desire more, it means you’re happy enough and thankful for what you have and patient for what’s coming ahead. A contented heart is a happy heart, if you want it to happen with you, you have to accept life whether how hard or smooth it is. Happiness only come to people who never fails to appreciate things in life.

    Happiness can be simply achieved if you have done what you love to do in life. Eventhough it is not easy to achieve happiness but we will be able to achieve it if the people around us also shares happiness to you.

  18. live your life now and stop thinking about what will happen in the future, and what had happened in the past.

    I believe that not all the time we can achieve to be happy, I think we should only be 50% happy because I think if you are too happy, you are bound to be sad easily. If you are too sad, you are too unstable. It is the best for us to stay in the middle.

  20. Happiness is being contented in everything you have. Life’s success is not about what you have, but it’s all about being happy with the little blessings from above

    There’s no such thing as perfect because like what is stated in this article, sadness is part of being happy. There will be no rainbow if it not because of the rain. Truly, happiness depends on how we realize and accept dark days as part of our life.

    A happy life isn’t always about the things you have in life. It is not only based on material things. It also means that you have contentment. A person will not be genuinely happy if they comapre their life with others because we are all born with differences. We should be thankful with what we have. Not envious from what we do not have.

    Happiness is achievd with the combination of hardwork and now. And of course contentment to what we achieved after that challenges that molds us to who we are now.

  26. Happiness is being contented with what you have right now. Do not compare yourself with other people because you’re you and they are different.

  27. Sometimes, we’re trying so hard to find the right ingredients for us to be happy, but we can’t see the things that God planned for us— the best and happy things that we should grateful for. We should always be grateful and contented and that’s what makes our life happier.

  28. Live with your own world

    To become happy we should be contented on the things that surrounds us. Appreciate small things and to give thanks on all the blessings that we recieved.

  30. Our life depends on the choices we make. Being happy is a choice, it’s upto you if you will appreciate little things. And every test in our life makes us bitter or better, every problem comes to break us or make us. The choice is ours whether we become victim or victor, because we always have a choice. We just have to choose what make us happy.

  31. Happiness is all about being contented on the things you have. Happiness is a choice.

  32. Only think of positive things, always make the most of everythung. Enjoy life with your love ones. Never think of others want to think. Just keep on, and start your day with positivity

    The happiness, contentment, and joy that we felt because we know that God is with us and He loves us so dearly is always the sweetest.

  37. We are responsible for our own happiness, it’s a choice — whether we want to be happy or not. Happiness is about loving for what we have and being grateful for it.

  38. happiness is one of the needs of a one’s person that fulfill his/her life, Be positive and negative actions be gone. Even though for its hard to be happy or to keep happy in this modern world, because there’s a lot of things that happens always or ever other day. “You will never be happy if you continue search for happiness consist of. You will never live if you are looking for the meaning of life”.- Albert Camus

  39. If we are to be contented with our desire and wants. Everything will lead you to happiness and ofcourse life will not be totally complete without our GOD! ????

  40. Happiness for me means contentment. It is being satisfied with the things that you have and not regretful of what you don’t have. Happiness is also when we are in harmony with everything and everyone.


    A happy heart is a happy life.

  44. Thank you to all who commented. I appreciate all your responses ?

  45. I love the lightness of this story but full of good reminders. For me, there’s no such thing as perfect formula to be happy but I believe with what the author has said, it’s contentment, love, and most of all God that were the answer to have the happiest life that we can have. ?
