Everyone measures their happiness in different ways. Some of us measure it in love, material things, health, or success, any way you want to measure it, it comes out as an emotion. How each of us choose to measure our own individual happiness will vary.
There are many things that bring me happiness. My family, my friends, my health, my wealth, my success. I just look around and see all the things that I am truly grateful for and that brings me happiness. Life can be like an up and down see saw, good days, and bad days, you just have to keep looking at the good side of things.
John Templeton Quoted: “Happiness comes from spiritual wealth, not material wealth. Happiness comes from giving, not getting. If we try hard to bring happiness to others, we cannot stop it from coming to us also. To get joy, we must give it, and to keep joy, we must scatter it.”
Happiness can come from many different things. What ever you enjoy doing in life can bring you happiness. Listening to a water fall escalating down a mountain top. Sitting in a boat waiting for that big fish to bite your hook, while all is peaceful around you. Smelling the wild flowers while walking in a big meadow. Watching your favorite movie, or reading your favorite book. A back yard barbecue with family and friends.
Extreme happiness can come from watching you’re baby be born. There is nothing like watching a life come into the world, what a miracle! There is much happiness when watching your child grow up. Watching them take their first steps, hearing them say their first words or learning to ride their bike for the first time.
There is plenty in life which brings happiness and contentment, the challenge for some of us is to find it. To push aside the challenges, the obstacles and to simply stop and enjoy the moment. To absorb the feeling and emotion of happiness.
We often look around at our life as routine in search of something greater. By doing this we wide up ignoring the simply joys and happiness that we already have.
We are all responsible for our own happiness and I choose mine to be at 110%! What about YOU?
