According to merriam-webster.com, the definition of happiness is:
: the state of being happy
: an experience that makes you happy.
The definition of happy on the other hand is:
: feeling pleasure and enjoyment because of your life, situation, etc.
: showing or causing feelings of pleasure and enjoyment
: pleased or glad about a particular situation, event, etc.
So what is happiness really? Personally I think happiness is a state of mind. You chose proactively whether to be happy or sad. You control your every reactions to situations given to you by life. Happiness is an inside job. It comes from within you and radiates outward. Dont let your happiness depend on external factors because once it is taken away from you, you will be left devastated. To be happy, you must be your own sunshine.
Happiness is a journey, not a destination. – Ben Sweetland
