Are you happy? What makes you feel good? What makes you happy?
Is it a cup of coffee? Or guy/girl? Reading good book? What makes you happy?
Getting comments on my blog or hubs that show that the commenter clearly read and enjoyed my writing.
That and catching a huge catfish. Yeah. That'll do it too.
It depends I guess, on my particular mood at the time. However I love to write. You could say that it places me in a happy zone. You could compare writing for me, as a kind of meditation. However besides that, a good cup of coffee - Yes, will definitely put me in the happy zone. Particularly Iced Coffee. And in addition to those things... the company of a few good friends and picking a good read.
There's a long list of things that make me happy. My children, hubby, coffee, cuties oranges, long Walking Dead marathons on the couch with hubby, camping, back packing, tanning on the beach, swimming at the lake, and my list could go on and on. I'm easily pleased!
Happiness is a state of mind. Many people mistakenly think that only when they have the things they desire, then they can be happy. This type of happiness is a very shallow feeling because they depend on certain desires being met in order to be happy. Once they got the things, their happiness begins to subside. It is just like the law of diminishing returns. These things cannot give us sustained happiness. Then the search for happiness starts again, a vicious cycle.
I try to maintain a mental state of happiness, without depending on external conditions. Of course if external conditions are favorable, it is easier for me to remain happy. The challenge is to remain happy without seeking external conditions, without depending on them.
Here is the most important message about happiness. One's health status is dependent on one's mental condition. A state of real mental happiness will strengthen one's immune system, and help one to remain healthy. If one is always unhappy, one is prone to get sick.
So be happy without condition.
Good Guy, I believe this is truly the right answer, that all should adhere to. You said it all in a nutshell. Material things are only temporary things of enjoyment, that we will eventually get bored with, sooner than later.
That's very deep - what a great answer; I think you nailed it good guy.
