Behind every great man there is a greater woman

This came to me in an E-mail and found interesting.

One night President Obama and his wife Michelle decided to do something out of routine and go for a casual dinner at a restaurant that wasn't too luxurious.

When they were seated, the owner of the restaurant asked the president's secret service if he could please speak to the First Lady in private. They obliged and Michelle had a conversation with the owner.

Following this conversation President Obama asked Michelle, why was he so interested in talking to you?

She mentioned that in her teenage years, he had been madly in love with her.

President Obama then said, "so if you had married him, you would now be the owner of this lovely restaurant" , to which Michelle responded, "no, if I had married him, he would now be President"

Happiness standardized!

I am being happy and happiness is the key keeps us alive and running. Unless we might not be this much around and talking even with the world outside the internet. Somehow people are trying to be in a happy mood all the time and being happy is the main point of living as people say.

What I see for a long time is that the happiness is standardized! People are doing the same thing to be happy and they are correct as far as the activity make them happy. But is it the real happiness?

I have no idea and I'm not pointing my finger at anyone because I have no right to question anyone's happiness. Whether it is standardized or not, it's that person which is being happy and I have no right to ask him why.

But I see they are doing what their neighbour does to be happy and they just believe by doing what THE OTHER does will make them happy but is it really the truth? Isn't it just the feeling of being higher than THE OTHER. Isn't it miserable?

People are happy with their families, education, jobs and achievements and yet the happiness is far beyond.

What is happiness at all rather than being high. I guess not being anything or anyone will surely make us happy for free.
