What is Happiness?

Everyone wants to be happy. Ask them what is happiness, and they might find it difficult to explain or define exactly what it is!!! What about you?

If you could explain happiness by throwing hundred or more words, I think you might not be too sure what happiness actually is. The more description and the more you attempt to reason out this simple word of happiness, the more you are not happy with yourself at the moment. Perhaps if you could offer simply with twenty or less words of what is happiness, I guess you are drawing nearer to knowing what this single word means. However if you could condense the definition by merely using two or one word of what happiness is, you are definitely a happy person all round.

To me, Happiness is only "A Feeling". As long as you are awake, your mind endlessly are thinking and pondering to something. The only time when our mind ceases to react and function is when we are dead. Otherwise we cannot stop our brain not to think and not to ponder. Our thought comes with feeling. Either the feeling of happiness or sadness. We have the choices to feel happily or unhappily.

I might not have the million cash in hand but I have the thousand readers who are reading my blog. The thought of my admirers and great friends all round the world, certainly make me feel joyful and happy all the time. I fully agree with Helen Keller quote -
“The most beautiful things in the world cannot be seen or even touched, they must be felt with the heart”
