What is Happiness – And How do I Find It?
Contentment, joy, sense of well-being, and pleasant feelings are all words associated with the definition of happiness. They’re all intangibles which can’t be found at the end of a rainbow or in a fat checkbook.
When we’re happy, we feel strong emotions filled with well-being and a smile appears on our faces. Since the beginning of time, people have sought happiness in one way or another, but only those who truly understand themselves and what will make them happy have succeeded in finding it.
Scientific research is always being conducted to analyze happiness and where to find it. Happiness is a concept that’s both baffling and clear. We know how we feel when we’re happy, but how to attain happiness always seems to elude us.
Since problems are bound to occur in real life to make us have unhappy feelings and thoughts, it’s even more important that we find happiness in our everyday lives. Your happiness might be your successful career or your status in your social circle.
Happiness can be found in your relationships. Making time to foster friendships and family ties increases your level of happiness that cannot be replaced by tangible items.
But, when one of the happiness contributors is incomplete or broken, our happiness can also be broken. That’s why we have to keep pursuing happiness rather than waiting for it to come to us.
Plot your own journey to happiness!
Although there’s no concrete path to happiness, we must all plot our own journeys and identify the links in the happiness circle to successfully complete it. We can’t expect to be happy and euphoric all the time, but at least we need to know which of the contributors to our happiness need more focus time.
Keeping a gratitude journal is a good way to zero in on what is really making you happy – and which things in your life need time and effort.
