Life Unboxed~Feeling Happy


What is the quintessential definition of happiness? I collected the following 8 on my own happiness journey. Some are esoteric, others down to earth and practical. In truth everyone's happiness is exactly that - their own.
Happiness is a thing of beauty and is uplifting. Which definition of happiness most closely resembles your ideal?
If flowers are not beautiful to you, then picture in your mind an image that will ultimately define happiness for you. You have the freedom to dream, to picture for yourself that happiness that will be yours.
1. Happiness is the dawn before the chorus - the quiet expectation that wonderful things will happen. Joy and sadness are equal partners and both have a place of recognition within the heart. Neither is more powerful than the other. They must co-exist like day and night.
2. Happiness is an emotion in which one experiences feelings ranging from contentment and satisfaction to bliss and intense joy
3. You don't have to be ecstatically happy, but are you satisfied with your life, do you feel that you're growing and changing, do you get on well with other people, are you comfortable with yourself, do you have a purpose in life?
4. Happiness is not our only emotion. It is the outlook we have chosen to cultivate becaue it is the most effective, thoughtful and productive.
5. The supreme happiness of life is the conviction that we are loved; loved for ourselves, or rather loved in spite of ourselves.
6. The happiness of life is made up of minute fractions. The little soon forgotten charities of a kiss or smile, a kind look, a heartfelt compliment - countless infinitesimals of pleasurable and genial feelings.
7. Happiness is a true state of mind, that you can have anytime, anywhere. Happiness comes from love, wholeness and peace. It is an inner state of being that comes naturally as you become connected with who you really are, your gifts and your purpose.
8. Happiness is basically a feeling when you don't have to worry about anything
