Happiness

What determines ones “happiness” ?  As I sit to reflect upon this word, “happiness”, I try to label it with something I was shown from a young age what this word actually means….

 

Happiness was being able to ride a bicycle and wonder to wherever my little legs would take me…the freedom to see just how powerful our bodies are was a beautiful happy feeling to me !!!

 

Then as I grew older, I discovered that my body could develop muscles with the help of pushing weights around….and from there I would enter body building competitions…

 

Today, I am at an age that I look at all that I accomplished with my body and give it great thanks, but I still ask the question , Am I Happy ?  in comes the little voice…

 

Awe my young beautiful being, you ponder the word “happiness”…Happiness with out emotion is just another word….too bad that you weren’t taught that this word would determine your state of being, which could one day bring you sadness..

 

Happiness is or has been misused and not given to you its true meaning…in our world it means being able to use all of your senses, to smell, to feel, to breath, to sing, to walk, to see or hear…to be able to say “thank you” to a flowers beauty or to a bird singing…to a cat and dog loving each other…looking up at the sky seeing the beauty of the white billowy clouds against the blueness of the sky…looking at your childs first smile… You see, the little things that people take for granite are the things that determines ones true state of being….what you call happiness…

 

So don’t look for happiness in accomplishments of the outside world, look for it from within your souls being….trust your soul when you are shown the small things that bring you joy….this is what we call “happiness”..:)
