Happiness is…

what is happiness

What is happiness? How often do we ask ourselves this question? To find the answer may take years or even a whole lifetime. For me, it’s often the simple things that constitute happiness. The precious moments in the everyday. It is not that I’m walking around smiling like a fool 24/7. No, but when times are hard I try to remember my own definition of happiness and search for that something that can reignite that sparkling merry spirit. It could be Anastasia’s giggles, bright colors, Joseph making me laugh, sun or good news from friends. These little things, they are around us, we just need to notice and appreciate them. So perhaps we just need to learn to focus on what is best in our lives instead of fixating on something we don’t have? It is our own responsibility to make ourselves happy rather than waiting for some fairy (or luck) to come and rescue us. The choice is yours to focus on the splashes of color or on the monotonous boring background. To me, life is too short not to enjoy it in full, that’s why I’m choosing color and… happiness.

    Happiness is those jeans!! LOVE.

    On a more serious note, happiness for me is those little things you mentioned. Watching the boys play together, listening to a favourite song, going for a walk in the sunshine, sitting down with a latte and a magazine.

    Beautiful post. x

    I wholeheartedly agree! Why not dance and twirl and enjoy things?

    I agree completely!! Like the quote ‘If you want to be happy, then be’. We are in control of our own emotions and feelings and we can change things. Our minds are much stronger than we believe in. Love that picture, I have some jumping photos that I’ve not put in a post, but it’s always fun to just jump or be silly when shooting pictures, helps to relax!! Beautiful!! Hope your week is going grand doll!! :)

    Oh, it’s been awhile since I was here. Love the photo and pants. Also, happiness is really a state of mind. I’ve been through hell and if you entertain the negative and cling to it, then you lose a lot of chance of being happy. Whatever it is you think, it would really manifest. Positive really attracts positive.
