Marrium-Websiter dictionary defines happiness as: obsolete :good fortune;a state of well-being and contentment :joy; a pleasurable or satisfying experience.
But I feel that happiness is much more complex than fortune, joy and pleasure. Happiness comes from doing what is best for yourself. It is being healthy and strong. Its surrounding yourself with things you love and people you love. Some of you happiness may come from a relationship. But the majority should come from yourself. One needs to be able to make themselves happy before looking to other to be happy and letting other look to him/her to be happy. Happiness does not come from money. Money is not the only thing in this world that will make a person happy. Being financially stable with make a person less stress therefore happier. Just because a person has more money than they know what to do with, it does not mean this person is happier than another. Happiness also comes from good things happening in your life, like the definition said, but sometimes bad things can end up being good for you in the long run thus making your life and even better one and bringing you more happiness.
This is just a snippet of what I think happiness means to me personally. Let me know what you think. What is your definition of happiness?
