What is Happiness?

According to the dictionary it means, “A mental or emotional state of well-being characterized by positive or pleasant emotions ranging from contentment to intense joy.”

What is happiness to you?

Happiness, to me, is doing what you want to do. Not because someone wants you to do it, but because you actually want to do it. May it be, playing a sport, or even just reading a book. What makes you happy, i think is happiness.

I know for me, it is when i am smiling, laughing, and loving life. Happiness can be so many different things, to every individual person. Some people find happiness when they are with a special person or if they are doing what they love to do.

I remember one time when i came back home from a trip that took two months. I came out of the airport and there was my beautiful girlfriend waiting for me. That moment was one of the happiest times i have ever been. Just knowing, that when you come back home, there is someone waiting for you. That moment is one that i always cherish in my life.

People, in general, go through so much hardships in their life. Most people don’t even know what happiness is anymore. With all the violence and drama in everyday life. Happiness is a rare thing to find. So if you have found happiness, don’t let it go. Keep it with you and cherish it, because you never know what tomorrow will bring.

“Be happy with what you have and are, be generous with both, and you won’t have to hunt for happiness.”
-William E. Gladstone
