Happiness truly is free. But to some extent, it isn’t free as you think. Happiness turns one’s life around. It makes you feel so good that everything around you doesn’t become an issue suddenly.

You suddenly forget everything that spoils your mood. YOU become a free man. When you are happy, you wouldn’t think twice of doing something to make other’s feel the way you feel because you want them to experience that feeling. it’s amazing.

When someone gets you a brand new car, or when you win a travel ticket, when you gain admission to college, or when your fiancee proposes to you.

A lot of amazing life experiences make you experience that feeling.

I remember the time I got admitted into college without passing the university cut off Mark for my course. It was a heavy miracle.

That was literally the happiest day of my life. I locked myself in my room and danced for over an hour without any music. Happiness is wonderful. It makes you understand another value of life.

The key to being happy is knowing you have the power to choose what to accept and what to let go.
Happiness comes from peace, and peace comes from indifference.

Happiness is something already made. It’s not how much we have something or someone that makes up happiness, but how much we enjoy them.

Happiness is when your life fulfills your needs, not your wants. It comes when you feel satisfied and fulfilled. It’s that feeling of contentment that life just has it should be. It all comes when all your needs are satisfied.

True happiness is enjoying your own company and living in peace and harmony with your body, mind, and soul. It’s the feeling of true love for yourself.

Being happy is a very personal thing and really has nothing to do with anyone else. Happiness doesn’t mean everything is perfect, it means you’ve decided to look beyond the imperfections and being satisfied with it all.

So what determines your happiness???


Yessssss….YOU!…..No one else determines your happiness for you…just you and only you.
Although it is said that 50% of your happiness is determined by your genes. 10% of your happiness is determined by your circumstances with your life and 40% is determined by your actions, your attitudes and optimism, and the way you handle situations.

Well, to an extent, it’s true. But that’s not what determines your happiness.
You are the only one that knows what and what not to do to make you happy.

Because…You!! Give meaning to events. YOU!!..are the architect of your belief system. YOU!!!..set the expectations and standards of life…YOU!!…morderate your inner dialogue. Your reality is based on HOW much effort YOU are willing to put into it.

The only thing that will make you happy is being who you are and not what people think you are. It’s a direction, not a place..and it all depends on YOU.

Very little is needed to make a happy life. It’s all within YOU. In your way of thinking. Although, Happiness will lose it, meaning if it isn’t balanced by sadness. It’s a consequence of personal effort.

It still depends on YOU!.

    Throughout life at some point or another we have all allowed outside influences to control our happiness. The relationship we’re in, our friendships, our jobs, our financial status and the list goes on. We give so much power to conditional beings, to conditional things.

    Your relationship breaks down and it is as your life has ended, you loose your job and you see no way back, friendships break down and you feel lost. Our happiness shouldn’t be determined by others or situations but by ourselves.

    Your relationship ended but let’s all be honest it’s not the end of the world, you can love again if you allow yourself to, you will love again. There are plenty of jobs out there, your skills and capabilities haven’t changed so apply yourself and you will find a new job. You lost a friend, was this person truly a friend? Is it even a loss? What about all the other amazing friends you have that you’ve probably neglected. Sometimes things are removed from our lives to open the door to new opportunities or simply because it was not for us.

    Times change, people change, situations change. You can not base your whole happiness on such things, things which have no guarantee of being permanent.

    No situation should be able to determine whether you get out of your bed in the morning, no one should hold the keys to your happiness but you.

    Happiness starts and ends with you. Do not put that burden on another being to make you happy. It’s not fair on them or yourself.

    Take control of your life, take back the keys you have so freely given away.

    Once you learn how to be genuinely happy for yourself your life will be amazing. You’ll wake up in the morning and smile for no reason other than the fact you chose to. Everything is a choice after all.

    Be grateful for what you have, all you lack will be taken care of

    I strongly agree with you …
    Happiness is a personal development and creativity . it begins with us to the people we surround ourselves with and what we do daily.

    Happiness is something already made. It’s not how much I have something or someone that makes up happiness, but how much I enjoy them. The key to being happy is knowing that I have the power to choose what to accept and what to let go.
    Happiness comes from peace, and peace comes from indifference ways.

    The only thing that will make me happy is being who I am and not what people think of me. It’s a direction, not a place and it all depends on me, very little is needed to make a happy life, It’s all within me in my way of thinking.
