What Is Happiness-Do You Know?

By
Real Estate Agent with Positive Properties, LLC

Happiness To Me

Happiness is an emotion associated with feelings ranging from contentment and satisfaction to bliss and intense joy. A variety of philosophical, religious, psychological and biological approaches have been taken to defining happiness and identifying its sources.

 Wikipedia defines happiness above. I define happiness as:

*A walk on the beach.

*Spending time with my family.

*Blogging on Rain.

*Visiting friends

*Going to Church

*Watching the snow fall.

*Making new friends.

*Watching a movie I haven't seen.

*A drive through the countryside.

*Writing poetry.

*Listening to music. (My favorites are country, gospel and rock and roll)

*Staring at the stars at night.

These are just a few things that bring me happiness. What about you? How do you describe happiness?

Laura.. Happiness is what makes people feel good.. and that can be a range of things.  Right now, with the weather being a little cooler here in the northeast.. my idea of happiness is being left alone (children away for a while) in my remodeled bathroom.. and enjoying the air-jet tub with the cromatherapy.. and a nice glass of white wine with strawberries.

Is this TMI?  Too much information.

Happiness is God and family.  I am so blessed, and very thankful to be blessed with good kids and a loving husband who also puts God first in his life.  Even though the economy is bad and things are not perfect in the world, I can go home and enjoy peace most days, unless war breaks out between the kids!!!

Oh a  walk on a beach (with warm sunshine) would feel so good about now!

Laura, I saw a piece of advice you left for someone about doing BPO's on the side - where does one begin if they want to look into doing them?

I decided to write down all of the blessings I am counting this week, and when I got to the end of the page I realized that there wasn't one single thing on my list that money could buy. It was the peolpe and relationships and experiences with the ones I love and who love me, and give me a reason to get up each morning!
