Updated on April 3, 2018

Devika enjoys sharing her work with a friendly community. Writing is a big part of her life. Online work has improved her lifestyle.

Do you know how to be Happy?

The short fat woman stopped by for a quick visit with her fat average height husband.

They looked very happy and content.

A short trip to a few places along the Dalmatian coast of Croatia and back home to feed their pets.

The couples have twenty chickens and everyday they have the pleasure of picking each egg to make the count of ten.

The eggs are sold to people who enjoy buying fresh farm eggs.

Around the rural area there are many farmers in this area and are self-sufficient.

Jane the short fat and blondish woman has a good life with her good husband. Money makes them everything they are and ever will be.

Happiness for this woman revolves around his wallet. The less-educated couples just think of how much money they have and how they can live off that money.

Their quick trips to the different places around Croatia make this woman happy and she seeks that happiness. It is called Temporary Happiness.

The husband is happy to give his wife the country tour.

She wants to be happy but doesn't realize what makes her miserable, especially when she has made her focus on Temporary happiness.

What do you know about Temporary Happiness?

I learned of temporary happiness when I moved to Croatia.

Strange but, true I did not experience Temporary happiness.

I observed Temporary happiness in other individuals.

These kinds of happiness don’t go with me.

In the above example, I observed how happiness affects this couple and for fourteen years I have seen more and more of that in many individuals..

It is rather odd to me because I don't feel that and never felt way of happiness.

Happiness is from within and if you don't have that happiness I believe you can be miserable forever.

I experienced true happiness from childhood years and that is a big difference in my life. I grew up with positive minded parents, and that was passed on to me.

The pleasant emotions helped our emotional state of well-being.

Most importantly we don't misunderstand how happiness affects the mind.

Remember happiness is a choice and if you choose to live that way, then you will be that happy person.

The choice is yours in sharing your true emotions. Sometimes you can't hide these emotions.

One's character develops purely with a positive mind and shows abilities as promised.

You can feel happy and the next moment be sad, or angry but, you must come back to happiness and stick to that mental state.

The life you choose to live can allow for happiness and other emotions. You are in control of your mind.

Happiness can't be taken away from you.

The moment you get what you want and enjoy doing that your happiness will be fulfilled.

The woman is less-educated and travels to different places but doesn't have the knowledge of each place. Money and intelligence don't go hand-in-hand. Money is needed for your basic needs, think about it!

The money you have can take you anywhere which is if it is more than enough.

What happens when you are less-educated and you have all this money, will traveling still have that great meaning to you?

These people enjoy themselves with small trips around their region what they do and where they go makes them happy.

Though, have they learned anything from each trip?

Do you think intelligence is more valuable than all that money one has?

Most people don't have both, intelligence and money.

If you let happiness into your life, and keep it there you will have permanent happiness. That happiness will last forever.

Happiness is what you choose in your life and walking down the path of happiness is a good choice in life.

We know life is a struggle and that people have always realized that struggle is the fundamental attribute common in life.

While the relative peace and prosperity of the past centuries have made people re-evaluate their views on the world. It doesn't mean if you are not happy permanently then you can't be happy

Emotions change frequently you won't get up with a smile every day. You can't be happy all the time. Certain moments create sadness.

You don't need to stay in the unhappy mood all the time. Unless you are weak and don't know your goals are happiness can disappear forever.

Everything changes and happiness sometimes vanishes. Happiness can change to unhappiness in split of a second as sadness can change to happiness that time.

In general, people are just happy, or sad.

You can be happy permanently if you allow that happiness in your life.

Some people are happier than others. It depends on the daily activities.

Do you think emotion is a weakness from you?

Emotions are never the same for everyone.

You use emotions to exploit each other don't you?

Do you think emotions are not a weakness?

What emotions do for you?

Emotions are used to motivate individuals. You need emotions and can't live without it.

When you choose to put your happiness in temporarily with these effects you tend to live that way for a long time.

Nothing else will make you happier than the temporary effect you chose.

Do you think lasting happiness is important?

I observed how individuals chose to be happy and their experiment to me is a science project. Being happy temporarily is doing what you want and living in denial.

When you take the time and train your pet you do get a kick from that experience but, that is not a lasting effect of happiness.

To get up each morning with a positive thought that makes you a happy person, and for a lasting period,

In the short period I experienced unhappiness I knew that wasn't the way to live. It made me miserable, the no-stop complaining, and arguments didn't fit in my lifestyle.

Something I couldn't go on with forever.

I had to cope and grow with life changes to be happy again.

The change showed me happiness again!

Short-lived happiness is when you make chocolate chip cookies and have that as a special treat.

The little events you are invited to does create that happiness but, that happiness doesn't last.

Good memories last a life time and bring that smile to your face.

The way you were raised and taught does have a major role in your happiness.

There are many avenues that you could be happy and unhappy with in your lifestyle.The challenges you experience can show you any emotion.

There will always be happiness but in a certain parts of your life, happiness won't be in all parts of your life.

Something or someone will be happy with you.

You can't attain the ultimate state of happiness in mortality. As happiness is everyone's ultimate aim it can also be temporary in one's life.

If you are not always happy you can have a peaceful mind to keep a relaxed moment.

People feel unhappy when they are not satisfied.

What makes you happy doesn't make everybody else happy.

What is the key to happiness?

You need to understand your views of different opinions and desires.

You can fix what makes you unhappy.

Accept what is and go on being happy.

A choice you make in the moment can change your life for a long time and that can cause you happiness or unhappiness.

So, living in the present is happiness.

Be happy where it counts to be happy and that is in the present.

Heath and difficulties can make you unhappy.

Eat what makes you feel good and be active for a happy life.

It becomes a habit to be happy.

You lose the old happiness and grow to a new lifestyle.

The new adaptations change you and over time you grow in to a different person and with happiness.

You have the ability to grow and develop into a happy individual. Remember not everyone has it as you have it.

I learned that happiness is based on circumstances while joy is based on truth, something that never changes.

Temporary happiness can cause misery forever!

Be Happy!

What is the key to Happiness?

Do you believe in Temporary happiness?

      Valuable lessons shared here. Most of us are stuck either in the past or the future and thus lose on the happiness that present has to offer.

      "Happiness is from within." "Happiness can't be taken away from you." Statements like these make me know that you know what you're taking about. Thanks for the tips on permanent happiness.

      Devika, happiness is a state of the mind and one can be happy even you are poor or rich. One aspect of happiness is a woman, can't negate this

      It's an interesting question. What do I know about happiness? I guess I would answer by saying I live it.
