Happiness is a mental or emotional state of well-being defined by positive or pleasant emotions ranging from contentment to intense joy.
Happiness can be a fully Charged Phone, deciding not go to work, an uncluttered room or having best friend.
Happiness can be treating yourself to a perfect handbag, a drama-free day at work, when the mall mirrors make you look thin or making someone happy.
Happiness can be good health, secretly giving to charity, falling asleep to the sound of rain or smiling when texting.
Happiness can be having my mom around, a late night talk with someone special, listening to a story about yourself as a child or a long walk in the morning.
Can happiness be given or is happiness earned ?
Can happiness find you or can you achieve happiness ?
I believe that happiness is one and all of these. It cannot be confined. It can’t be faked. Happiness is something that is reflected on your face and shines though your eyes from your insides. It gives a special glow to your face and can’t be hidden.
It can however be given and shared. It can be contagious like the giggles from across the room that make you smile. Sometimes when you stumble upon it, you need to grab it and enjoy it. Happiness is like a hug, you need to share it to enjoy it.
One can generate happiness by achieving goals, by giving and receiving gifts and by the thoughts you share. It can also be the realisation of contentment, the joy of giving.
Happiness can come from a spouse, a friend, a child, a parent, a loved one or even a stranger. It can be the result of a game, a job well done, a holiday, a long drive, the smell of rain or a new dress.
As important as where Happiness comes from, it is equally important where it goes and who you share it with. When we are happy we feel like we are on top of the world and that nothing can bring us down. We feel like heroes and champions. We feel an euphoric high that can be very contagious.
Happiness is something that we all should strive to create, to share and to spread.
