What does happiness mean to you?
I like Robert Holden’s definition of happiness.
He says that Happiness is a gift and not just for ourselves. It’s a gift to our family; our friends; our colleagues; our acquaintances.
Happiness is good for each of us and it’s good for everyone else too.
Studies prove that happiness is more than just a pleasurable emotion. Happiness has essential properties that bring out the best in us and helps us to be genuinely friendly, loving, forgiving and kind.
I get that ~ when I experience happiness I’m in a really good mood and I want everyone I meet to be happy too. It’s kind of infectious.
When I’m happy I can’t stop smiling. Have you noticed when you smile at someone ~ even if you don’t know them ~ they will smile back?
I love watching children playing ~ that is pure happiness. Children experience happiness naturally and easily.
I have a great grandson who is pure joy as he plays. I love watching and playing with him. His smile and laugh are the definition of happiness. I can tell it’s his natural way to be.
I love this quote by John Lennon:
“When I was 5 years old, my mother always told me that happiness was the key to life. When I went to school, they asked me what I wanted to be when I grew up. I wrote down ‘happy’.
They told me I didn’t understand the assignment, and I told them they didn’t understand life.”
If you haven’t already ~ I encourage you to give yourself the gift of happiness.
