What is Happiness ?

Happiness is a sum of all other things
It is not the fleeting feeling that makes you feel giddy and rolling on the floor laughing
That kind of happiness is temporary like a passing wind
For at the end of that moment only its echoes remain in your mind as sadness and silence take over

Happiness is being happy for other people's success
Being grateful for little and simple blessings in life
Having peace of mind and contentment in your heart

Happiness is the feeling of security
Knowing you are loved and cared for unconditionally
Being accepted and embraced in all your imperfections and flaws
Being able to love and respect yourself in your dark and bright days with the same amount of zeal

Happiness is living simply but with meaning
Having positive outlook in life that sees the good in everything in all situations
Staying grounded in your belief
And accepting things that you cannot change

Happiness is loving yourself
More than anything else
For it is in self love where all other love emanates
