An Interpretation of Happiness

What is happiness?

That feeling that you get when you’re surrounded by your family?

That sensation that you experience when you’re spending time with your closest friends?

That rush that you feel when you’re with that one person who looks at you like no other?

That ecstasy that takes over when you take a second to realise that you have absolutely everything that you’ve ever needed?

Happiness is a state of being, not a goal or destination. Its definition is unique to each individual. It is a welcomed and anticipated part of all of our lives; and yet it is fleeting. So when you are able to establish what it is that you can always count on to brighten your day and make you smile like a Cheshire cat… hold on to it with both hands and don’t let it go!

  2. Yes, you are quite right, and sadly, when you lose that ‘happiness’ state, it can be very difficult to get back. I am starting to think it could be impossible
