         Happiness is an inner state of well being. A state of well being enables you to profit from your highest: thoughts, wisdom, intelligence, common sense, emotions, health, and spiritual values in your life.Happiness is when your mind is thinking through your heart.
        Happiness is an emotion, which at first seems simple, but on reflection is quite complex. Americans have the “right” to happiness as part of their constitution. I find this difficult to understand because what makes us happy is so varied. To be happy is a fleeting thing, which we enjoy so much we often want it back as soon as possible..
That's why I want to be in a happy state every day. However, one shouldn't be living in the memory. The dictionary definition to happiness is "feelings of joy and pleasure mingled together”. A feeling of happiness is more than just an experience of joy or pleasure. It is a state of mind where the individual feels that “life is good”. True happiness is not attained through self-gratification, but through fidelity to a worthy purpose. So one should choose to create happiness. Moreover, happiness is not merely a life lived by accumulating moments of pleasure. On the contrary, happiness is a long lasting enduring enjoyment of life. It is being in love with living. It is your reward for achieving a good character and personal rational values in life. Some important values are a productive career, romance, friendship and hobbies. Happiness is not a destination: it is a manner of travelling. Happiness is not an end in itself. It is a by-product of working, playing, loving and living.

    Often, people argue that to understand happiness, we must know sadness as well. To be unhappy, and in deep sorrow, is an emotion that helps us to know the value of the happiness we have experienced. Happiness is a kind of treasure, then, that we hold in our hearts to save ourselves from being pierced too deeply by sorrow. We remember the good things, the happy things, the wonderful time we spent together to protect ourselves from pain. Thus, the greatest part of our happiness depends on our dispositions, not our circumstances.

    So, happiness for me is to know that my life has meaning and purpose, and that every day my life touches others in a positive way--whether to make them laugh or learn or both at once!
