What is Happiness? According to Wikipedia, Happiness is a mental or emotional state of well-being characterized by positive or pleasant emotions ranging from contentment to intense joy. People from various backgrounds and cultures have different definitions of it. I believe there is more to it than just a mental or emotional state, I can't even describe it completely.
While reading the book Eat, Pray, Love by Liz Gilbert (totally savoring each chapters of the book!), she describes it as a consequence of personal effort. You fight for it, strive for it, and insist upon it.
I totally believe it's true, when you find that happiness you've been looking for throughout your life, you'll do anything to keep it. Happiness can mean many different things to others. We all have our own perspective to what it should be. Everyone desires happiness.
As for me, I know that happiness is within reach, you just have to open your eyes to everyday blessings, you just have to be grateful for everything that you have and will come. Look within yourself what makes you happy and contented. God Bless.
