What is happiness?
I once made a list...
and the list goes on for days......
But these things aren't happiness, these are just some things that I enjoy. As abstract as happiness is, I think I understand. It is no longer a list of circumstances that makes me happy (it sure as hell helps!!) It is not purely the sensations these things give me either. Happiness is being content, Happiness is being present and taking life in. It is the highs and the lows. It is knowing that everything matters, but at the same time nothing really matters. In the end, all there is is an end! But nothing really ever ends, it is a circle. I am not afraid to die, I am not afraid to end. I know I will begin again. With that I can live. I mean really live. I can appreciate life's many atmosphere, but I will no longer get lost within them. Happiness is knowing, happiness is being awake.
Don't let anyone convince you that happiness needs to be attained. It is a state of being, It is a mind set, but most of all it is from within. Search your soul not the world, that is where the key lies.
