Balance, a full spiritual life, the love of my family, and the time to get out and LIVE life. We weren't meant to live our lives collecting useless 'treasures,' hiding in our cave. We're supposed to get out and see, feel, and experience our world and to share the experience with others. I'm truly happy knowing that I'm the cherished son of an almighty creator who loves me. He gave me a family that isn't perfect, but they're perfect for me. There are trails to hike, mountains to climb, rivers to kayak. I have friends I would die for, and who would do the same for me. For me, happiness is the fact that my eyes are open to all of the wonders of life, having the audacity to seize the day, and the faith to live in the moment.
An occasional Jack & Coke is pretty good, too
