Happiness, what does that word mean to you?
The Oxford English Dictionary’s definition of Happiness is ” The quality or condition of being happy.”
But what does that mean, whats makes us/you happy?
Well for me, being happy and happiness generally is simple, it is often the most simple things in life that make me happy e.d:-
Seeing my wife laugh
Hearing the voices of my children on the phone
My Dogs wagging their tail
The comfortable feeling after a good meal
The taste of honey on fresh brown toast
My morning coffee
Watching children play without a care in the world
Hearing the birds sing
Watching the sun rise or the sun set
Being in nature
The smell of freshly mown grass
The sound of the ocean, waves crashing on the shore
Feeling the sunshine on my face
Listening to the soft breeze through bamboo leaves
Walking alone in the countryside
Meditation and what its peace brings to my life
Meeting friends on a Friday evening for drinks and some laughs
My dogs cuddling on my lap, fast asleep and safe
My spiritual journey and what it still has in offer to me
The unconditional love of my wife
I could go on and on with this list because there are so many things in my life that i’m thankful for and of which make me happy.
How about you, what makes you happy?
Namaste with Love
