Happiness philosophies

The Princeton dictionary defines happiness as state of well-being characterized by emotions ranging from contentment to intense joy.

To me, happiness is just that feeling I get when I am satisfied with myself and others. It is possible that a person is sad even after the universe tries to make her happy. It is also possible for a person to be happy even the worst of problems surrounds her.

When you want to be happy there is nothing that can stop you from being happy. You will find happiness in the smallest moments of life. A mother finds happiness in her child's smile. A friend finds happiness in another friends achievement. A child finds happiness in spending time with her parents. A lover finds happiness in the arms of her lover. Happiness is everywhere. Life is too short, so make sure you get your share from everywhere!
