Most of us find ourselves in search of happiness throughout our lifetime, because, of course, everyone wants to be happy.  But what is exactly is this happiness that people long for?  If we look at the textbook definition of happiness, we must define happiness as, “the quality or state of being happy”.   Moreover, happy can be interpreted as “feeling, showing or expressing joy, contentment.”
We can read the definition of happiness and it may not mean much to us, or perhaps it connects with your friend but not yourself.   What is your definition of happiness?      What if you never achieve the happiness you seek? Would that mean that life is “bad” for you?
However, what if you could attain your happiness? What if more than simply attaining your own happiness, you could exceed that level of joy?
Perhaps the key to entering through the door of happiness lies in a thought? After all, by definition, happiness is a state of being happy – a state of mind. As the quote goes, “as a man thinketh – so he is…”.
I have found that the reality of my lives, relationships, jobs, etc., is determined mainly by my thoughts. I was a butterfly in transformation. In the cocoon state, I was surrounded by negative thoughts and negative views of all that surrounded me – down and upset by all my expectations of life that were not being met. As I released these expectations and negative thoughts and came more into positive thinking about my relationships with others, my jobs, etc., I felt that I had come more into the light that began to transform my life into a more lifting, calmer, and jovial state of being.
