How do we define happiness, are you happy when you happy or are you content with being happy, do you smile do you laugh do you cry sometimes of happiness.
I am happy when I get home to a loving wife and daughter after a hard day at work, seeing their faces seeing them smile seeing them happy makes me even happier.
Yet there are so many of us out there that measures happiness in material possession I drive a big beautiful car that makes me happy I live in a big mansion that makes me happy, I am surrounded by people who do things for me that makes me happy I can eat at a fancy restaurant each night I am happy cause I can buy drinks for everyone at the bar I am happy cause I just got a big juicy tender for millions of rands I am happy I am happy I am happy, question are you really happy, can you really walk into a house and be greeted by a warm smile, can you really make a cold dark day seem like the sunniest brightest day outside, shouldn’t your happiness be determined by the magnitude of the happiness that you bring to the life’s of others, or should it be determined by the happiness you bring to yourself???
I am happy because I can make people happy; more then that I don’t want or need, ask yourself now are you really happy, or just content!!!
