What Is Happiness?

Happiness is a state of mental or emotional well-being. Being happy is characterized by positive or pleasant emotions ranging from being content to elation.

Happiness comes from within. You need to feel the emotion. You need to recognize the elation. If you aren't happy then how could you radiate the glee to spread around to thee?

How many reasons could you list that make you happy? You will be surprised at how many things make you giddy with joy.

Feel free to share some of your reasons for happiness in the comment section below. You just never know who you might inspire.

Keep on shining!

      I am a young girl going through a phase. After reading this and listening to the songs I can appreciate life the way it is.

      The little things in life is what matters. Live life to the fullest. Live life one day at a time. Take things as they come, and enjoy life.

      I think #15 stands out the most for me today. I was just watching an old movie and remarked on how the graphic quality has changed through the years. Still, the old favorites have much charm and excellent plots.

      It's fun to see what makes other people happy. Some of them are universal and some are unique to the person. Thanks for sharing yours. And the Happy song... well, that makes a lot of people happy! I had to include it in my article about happiness, as well. There are a few interesting and cute Youtube renditions of the Happy song videos that are sure to get a smile.

      Take care!

      I think though I am not sure....that maybe just maybe I have found a hub that I have not read before that was written by that lady down in Orlando. I enjoyed the 101 reasons to be happy....being happy and staying positive is what I try to be all about. So looking through your list I would say I agree with almost all of the items....but ones that really stick out would include....63 Karma is huge....90 Baseball cards are awesome....just opened a pack yesterday as matter of fact....13 especially if you are by somebody you love. Voted up and interesting....like the Happy Lane street sign.

      sunshine Beautiful reasons to be happy. When I get the blues I often write what I have to be grateful for and that puts me right back to humility. If allot more made more lists like this I believe we would be a bit more grateful for the gifts the Lord has so graciously bestowed upon us and our nation. My top reason f0r happy would be I have eternal life with Jesus to look forward to!!! There will be no pain or suffering. God Bless u girl. Thank you for the awesome list. Love it.

      Sunshine , to be honest with you , I believe that women hold the key to happiness and laughter ,I carry on with life a little too close to the edge of being too serious , yet almost all the women I know are easy to make laugh or smile , hold special powers of spiritual connections and seem to be the best at creating smiles socially! God bless you ! And all the women who spread smiles !

      Fantastic idea for a hub. I had someone actually tell me yesterday that my optimism is annoying. I think that just means they have a long way to go before finding their inner joy. I guess that's annoying, too :} It's nice to see hubs like this that remind me of others who are focusing on the up side.

      There's no other grace

      so kind and so rare

      There's no other one

      who has done

      more for the world

      than Jesus.

      In light of the the fact that this is Palm Sunday and next weekend is Easter Sunday, I can say that the most wonderful thing that I am thankful for is that God sent his Son, Jesus, to die for my sins and the sins of the world. All we have to do is accept his loving sacrifice, ask for His forgiveness, and turn our lives around from living for ourselves to living for Him. I find that when I truly do that (which is hard, because we can be very selfish people) I am blessed beyond measure. Thank you Jesus for loving us!!

      Great list.

      I would put "overcoming addiction to HP and getting on with one's life".

      101 fantastic reasons to be happy, Linda, and these are my faves:. Hearing the word "negative" from your physician / Winning anything! / Becoming a parent and becoming a grandparent / family and friends / Simply waking up in the morning! / Chocolate anything! / Good health and Positive attitude.

      One more, almost forgot: Karma is always on alert. Did you see my 'Interview with Karma'? I cited you in the second paragraph since you and sweetsusie gave me the idea for the topic in your comments on one of her hubs.

      Every petal's fragrance is the beauty of God's love

      Every life is the breath of God's tenderness

      Every seed is the miracle of God's grace

      Every day is a gift of God's kindness

      Every blade of grass is a wonder of God's hands

      Every drop of water is a blessing from God's heart

      Every grain of sand is a marvel of God's genius

      Everywhere nature sings praises to God's glory

      Take time each day to thank God

      for even the smallest things

      He has given you

      and you will find true joy.

      Truly a happy-making list, Linda! On my list I would add the wild Cape Francolin and little wagtails that trust me enough to come and feed from my hand. Also, knowing that I have people around me who love me unconditionally. And, reading a hub written by Sunshine!!!
