So, what is happiness? As you look around, you can find all different kinds of definitions for happiness. Here are some of the basic examples of which some, I believe, really do not equate to happiness but can contribute to happiness. They are: good fortune, prosperity, a state of well-being and contentment, joy, and a pleasurable or satisfying experience.
Wikipedia defines happiness as “a mental or emotional state of well-being characterized by positive or pleasant emotions ranging from contentment to intense joy. It is of such fundamental importance to the human condition that “life, liberty, and the pursuit of happiness” were deemed to be unalienable rights by the United States Declaration of Independence. The United Nations declared March 20th the “International Day of Happiness” to recognize the relevance of happiness and well-being as universal goals.”
There is a very popular song out of recent (I enjoy this song very much too) by Pharrell Williams called “Happy.” It’s not without reason that at the time of this writing this song on You Tube has 808,020,237 views. Let’s explore the subject of happiness.
Some would say this is the goal of life. In the humanly sense, to a large extent I would agree. We are all striving to be happy. Joy and pleasure come from that bliss of connectedness that is the soul, our spirit, which you can feel deep inside. You get it from that connection, not from money, and when you have that connection you will feel it, and there will be smiles and laughter. These are the reflections of the moments that really count!
