Defining Happiness


How do you define happiness? What makes you happy? When do you know that you are happy?

See the pretty flowers above? I feel happy just by looking at it.

This is the part I hate the most when I'm taking a vacation. It gives me more time to think about even the most unthinkable of things. It gives me the energy to ruminate with just about whatever. Sometimes when I'm just sitting in a corner, the next thing I know, I'd be thinking and visualizing images in my mind. And just the other day, I was thinking of the notion of happiness, the ecstatic feeling, the euphoria.

It's a fact. People don't know how to recognize their feelings anymore. I thought more and more are becoming rocks and stones, unable to feel the magic of being happy. And yeah, sometimes, only sometimes, I'm becoming one of them.

Have you ever been in a dilemma wherein you're already there in the place you've longed for, but you don't know if that's exactly what you want to be in? That's where I am right now. I have always been dreaming, praying, of the things I want in life but at the end of the day, I really don't know if that's what I want. I hope I can just blame it on my hormones but no.

It's just the sad realities of life. This is what you get after curling up in bed and reading a book about young life crisis. It makes you ponder on your own young life. I can be shallow, I can be deep. That's why defining happiness is hard. But at the bottom of things, I just have one answer, happiness is with family and friends.

I know it's definitely hard to say for now that happiness is achieving something. But I still haven't achieved any. Just help me be happy and content with what I have now, and let our Boss up there do the rest. He's our Boss, He's my manager. Whatever is in store in the upcoming months, is up to Him.

Oh boy, I don't want this vacation to end. I have so many realizations but I don't have my own conclusions--- but are conclusions important afterall?

Think think think.

I envy the flowers, they have their own life. Their purpose maybe is to add beauty to earth's richness, and to work with bees and help in pollination. I hope life's as easy as that.

We can all be happy, happiness is with family and friends, or by looking at images that provoke or imbibe that certain emotion.

So how then would you define happiness?
