It can and has been defined in many ways. Usually a person is happy when he or she has more of a positive attitude and outlook on life, than a negative one. Happiness can be derived from the small things in life, such as when someone sends a smile your way; when someone you love is successful or has a breakthrough of some sort; when someone you care about gives you a hug or you give someone a hug or when you complete a small task, you have left undone for quite some time.
We also experience happiness when our life has a meaning. Having someone we love or who loves us usually makes us happy. It can be a person or an animal that we bond with and we feel happiness. Having a good job we love going to makes us happy. Happiness is also not only in parenting because grandparents are usually also very happy people. Happiness can be reaching the top of a mountain you’ve wanted to climb for a long time or sticking to your daily goals.
Happiness is an inner feeling of contentment, of being happy with life as it is, although more could be added to it. There can be several reasons why this feeling of contentment may be lacking in your life. Most of the time we are not happy because of something that has happened in our lives, some setbacks that are the result of crisis or traumas that have not been cleared. While we do not work on healing the wounds or clearing the negative blueprints we continue to follow, it may be hard to find Happiness.
