What is the True Meaning of Happiness?

Meaning of HappinessPeople spend hours, days, even years searching for meaning of happiness. What really makes them happy? Is it a new job? A new spouse? A new home? A new car? No matter what you fill in the blank with, the answer will always be no. Happiness is not about who you’re with or where you are or what you have. Can these add to your happiness? Yes they can. Can these things create your happiness? Never.

The dictionary defines happiness as being fortunate, cheerful, lucky, or expressing joy. Apparently it is hard for anyone to define happiness if the dictionary lists it as being lucky.

Happiness is about loving who you are and where you’re at in life.  No outside source can give you true happiness. Things can make you happy for a while, but the complete and true emotion of happiness is living the best life possible, knowing that you are an amazing human being that is sending out happiness into the world and creating a better place than what was there before.

Happiness is about loving yourself while constantly changing to become a better you. This comes from deep inside your heart and soul. Outside circumstances may create difficulties or hardships, but true happiness prevails because you know that you will survive and move beyond this point in life. Not only will you survive, you will be a much wiser and stronger person for having gone through those specific circumstances.

The meaning of happiness is an elusive thing to those that do not understand it. One has to only look inside themselves, and not out in the world, to discover the joy that has been hiding all along.
