The Happiest Countries In The World ...

Happiness is having a dream you cannot let go of and a partner who would never ask you to...

I just finished reading an article as examined by 24/7 Wall St , and was not too surprised at which were the happiest countries in the world.  I boils down to economic prosperity, health and a strong social support network, how much you have to work a day, how much time you have for leisure.  This all contributes to higher levels of happiness according to the report.

Not surprised that once again the United States did not make the list.  Life in the US is very hard.  Here one works and works and sometimes one job does not cover all your needs.  Life here is a golden opportunity for many and if you are lucky and you make it, life is great. 

Our economy is not the best, but I would never trade places and live anywhere else,  but the USA...It home and as far as I am concerned nothing compares to it.

These are the happiest countries in the world

1. Denmark.  Life satisfaction score: 7.8
2. Norway.   Life satisfaction score: 7.6
3. Netherlands.   Life satisfaction score: 7.5
4. Switzerland.   Life satisfaction score: 7.5 
5. Austria.   Life satisfaction score: 7.5 
6. Israel.   Life satisfaction score: 7.4
7. Finland.   Life satisfaction score: 7.4 
8. Australia.   Life satisfaction score: 7.4 
9. Canada.   Life satisfaction score: 7.4
10. Sweden.    Life satisfaction score: 7.3 

Economic prosperity appears to be one of the strongest factors that relates to overall life satisfaction. Of the 10 countries with the highest levels of happiness, nine have personal incomes that are higher than the average. Eight of them have among the highest disposable incomes among developed nations.

For me the happiest place in the world is where Arvid, Brutus and my loved ones are and that's right here in the USA...There are two things to aim at in life: first, to get what you want; and after that, to enjoy it. Only the wisest of mankind achieve the second.

Have a good day all...

The happiest people seem to be those who have no particular reason for being happy except that they are so..
