Happiness

Just wondered what could be a thought for today…  After been chatting with some friends on Twitter I though about Happiness.  As a family tonight we watched Will Smith in ‘Hitch’  but  I thought of his film ‘ The pursuit of happiness’  if you’ve not watched it, its a good emotional one.

What is the definition of Happiness?
Happiness is a state of mind or feeling characterized by contentment, love, satisfaction, pleasure, or joy.
How is it achieved?
[1] A variety of biologicalpsychologicalreligious, andphilosophical approaches have striven to define happiness and identify its sources.

That’s what the dictionary says anyway, but what makes up happiness???

I think it’s the little things that happen around you that bring small amounts of pleasure and joy, the more we create these moments of joy then it builds a happy state of mind, bringing happiness.  But we have to create these moments and draw them to us, this could be moments with your children, looking at happy photos, or even enjoying creation/mother nature around us.

So even if we are in a bad situation, we can still become happy if we create small moments of pleasure and joy, this will uplift us bringing us a happier life.

What do you think?  Is creating your own happiness possible?
