Happiness is a funny thing. According to Wikipedia it literally means: “a mental or emotional state of well-being characterized by positive or pleasant emotions ranging from contentment to intense joy”. Seen from scientific point of view Wikipedia states “Happiness is a fuzzy concept and can mean many things to many people. Part of the challenge of a science of happiness is to identify different concepts of happiness, and where applicable, split them into their components.”. But why on earth would we (not you and me but al the others ofcourse) want to split happiness into components?
Everyone understands what being happy is. It needs no further explanation. If you are into scientific viewpoints, you might take a look at the World Database of Happiness.
Btw, did you know that happiness is actually a choice? That’s right. You can choose to be happy. You can also choose to be unhappy, but why bother? Better spend the energy that you have towards happiness than spend it magnifying the things that might make you unhappy. So I wish you happy happiness hunting!
