Oh, It’s Tuesday: What is Your Idea of Perfect Happiness? [Proust Questionnaire]

A series of introspection based on Vanity Fair’s Proust Questionnaire.

proustOh wow, today’s question is a doozy: What is your idea of perfect happiness?

It’s also an interesting question, b/c much as children eventually stop believing in Santa Claus, I have stopped believing in perfect happiness. There is simply no such thing IMO, b/c happiness is just so vague and fluid.

But I do believe in perfect moments ala BabySmiling’s Perfect Moment Mondays. And sometimes — usually when I’m laughing with family and/or friends — a burst of clarity comes over me, and I realize that this is indeed a perfect moment and that I will remember it forever.

I often think that if I get Alzheimer’s or dementia when I’m older these will be the happy moments that remain, and that gives me comfort.

But how about you? Do you believe in perfect happiness? And if so, what is your idea of perfect happiness?
