Everyone has a different HAPPY.
Some people find happiness in pleasing others, while others find happiness in power and domination.
Some people define their happy as a billion dollars.
Others think the way to happiness and a meaningful life is to get closer to God and give up everything material.
Still others think the ultimate idea of happiness is freedom!
What is your ‘HAPPY’?
I’m taking a positive psychology class, and they say that their are 10 positive emotions. Believe it or not Happy is not one of them. Happy is a broad term that describes a lot of emotions.
The top 10 positive emotions are:
Joy, Gratitude, Serenity, Interest, Hope, Pride, Amusement, Inspiration, Awe and LOVE!
Maybe that’s why they say, “Everyone has a different happy”, because there are so many emotions that make you feel happy!
Positive emotions also have a lot to do with your immune system function, which is why I believe that when dealing with cancer you need to stay positive. It’s like a nutrient to your body.
I’ll keep you updated on how my positive psychology class is going along the way. Would love feedback from you on what your take of being positive is!
