Your Happiness Begins And Ends With YOU!

Just exactly what is happiness anyway?  On Google you will find:

“A state of well-being characterized by emotions ranging from

contentment to intense joy”;

“Emotions experienced when in a state of well-being”;

“Happiness is an emotional or affective state that is characterized by feelings of enjoyment and satisfaction.  As a state and a subject, it has been pursued and commented on extensively throughout world history.  This reflects the universal importance that humans place on happiness”.

When you are feeling happy, what exactly brought on the feeling?  Did you wake up feeling content, or were you feeling intense joy?  Did something you experienced during the day provoke feelings of happiness?  Was it something you did for someone else that made you feel happy?  Did someone else do something for, or to you that made you happy?

YOU have it within yourself to determine your state of happiness at any given time.  Call it your attitude, your feeling of self-esteem, the way you deal with your immediate environment and the people in it, or whether your overall approach to life is positive or negative.  The fact is, YOU and YOU alone can determine from within yourself what approach you will take to your life, and the relative level of contentment, joy and happiness you will experience!

What are your thoughts?

Till next time…
