Happiness is one of the most vital ingredients you need in life. It leads to contentment. Happiness provides you with security and independence. It helps you strive to be greater, prouder or smarter. When you don’t have happiness you can feel the affects it has on you. It can completely dull your life. Being unhappy can lead to fatigue, failure and a lack of life.
When I observe other people and there lives I can see that happiness is provided in different ways. Maybe through another person or an animal (part of my happiness definitely comes from doggies), maybe through exercise, or eating, or singing, maybe dancing and drinking. So many aspects can contribute to a persons happiness… I love studying it and learning what makes a person different from another.
When deciding what makes me happy I try not to focus on other people. Just because life can change in seconds, those people could leave. I’ve learnt as I’ve grown up that sometimes you only have you. You can have all the money and friends in the world but it can all be taken away from you at the click of your fingers, it is un-promised. I find my happiness through music, a walk along the beach or writing. I enjoy doing stuff alone and being in my own little head space. I feel content. The rest of my happiness is an added bonus but I know that if something got taken away from me, I would know what I had to do to be happy.
I think at the end of the day you can have all the brands, money, cars and gadgets but they don’t create memories. Memories over money. Every. Single. Day.
If someone asked me to write down what the most important thing in life was before I died, it would be happiness. Always happiness. I’m not saying it is easy to be happy all the time because sadness is an aspect to life, we’re human, we feel things. But through these other aspects of life…find happiness and choose it.
