What is it?|
"Happiness: A state of mind or feeling characterized by contentment, love, satisfaction, pleasure, or joy.
1] A variety of philosophical, religious, psychological and biological approaches have striven to define happiness and identify its sources.
Philosophers and religious thinkers often define happiness in terms of living a good life, or flourishing, rather than simply as an emotion. Happiness in this older sense was used to translate the Greek Eudaimonia, and is still used in virtue ethics." Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
So basically it differs from one person to another. I just find it cynical that my name means Joyce and yet I can't quite define what it really means.
Now don't get me wrong, I'm a very optimistic person, I love life, this wasn't always the case but it is now,,,aaanyway back to the point, we see happy people everywhere and yes they do exist, even in Jordan,,,You just have to dig a bit deeper to get a smile out of them and you will eventually, it doesnt even have to be with teeth, because then you'd really be pushing it and asking for your life to end, but on the other side you would've witnessed a miracle, ha ha having that said, I can HAPPILY drop my sarcasm and somehow finish this note so it can make sense to you as much as it does to me.
I must warn you though that I haven't slept yet so maybe next I read it, it wouldnt make sense to me either!
What's happiness? And don't tell me seeing someone you love, or a mother holding her baby, or any of this cliché that I've heard before, because the way I see it, finding your happiness couldnt possibly be related to someone else, I mean it's nice, I believe it all stands on finding yourself, "or on someone finding you if you really suck with directions?" no, seriously forget what I just mentioned before because I know you all won't let me off the hook! =)
Let's have a heart-to-heart conversation here, did you have one of these "lasting happy" moments, not the ones that make you smile for like 5 minutes because someone has done something nice to you, or because your friend did something stupid and made you laugh your a** off, or because you were watching something funny that reminded you of someone, I don't believe I found it yet, but I have a feeling that I'm on the right track, what about you guys? Care to share?...*now that sounded soooo lame!* *And no I'm not drunk or high, I'm just a philosopher but Steve will definitely win at any competition at any time*
Love you and leave you.
P.S: Please don't kill me after reading this load of shit,I am only 25,young and beautiful and I have my whole life ahead of me hahaha <3
