: the state of being happy
: an experience that makes you happy
One day during this past very long, drab New England winter, I took notice that it suddenly seemed as if there wasn't one single happy person. Neighbors and store clerks greeted one another with complaints about the frigid temps., snowstorms on the way, and a variety of ailments from the winter flu to ever annoying head colds.
Humankind has gone travel across the world in search of the key to happiness: Some climb the Himalayas, with Sherpas in tow, looking for enlightenment. Some find a short fix in Sephora, (guilty). Others seek spiritual advisors, look for happiness in the self-help section of Barnes & Noble, or think they can eat their way to happiness.
I asked the public and this is what you had to say on the matter:
I'd love the hear from the rest of you. What is your definition of happiness?
My wish for you all today is that no matter what is going on in your life you find some happiness and contentment, even if it's only for a moment. xoxo
