So, I’ve been thinking about this whole being happy thing, and I feel like people get lost when they think of happiness as a destination. We’re always thinking that someday we’ll be happy; we’ll get that car or that job or that person in our lives that will fix everything. But happiness is a mood, and it’s a condition, not a destination. It’s like being tired or hungry, it’s not permanent. It comes and goes, and that’s okay. And I feel like if people thought of it that way, they’d find happiness more often.

    Exactly. It is like this. I have several situations during the week that make me feel happy…like creating something good, going swimming, a nice walk, dating somebody special….if these moments stay very present I tell myself happy, if there are more sad and not satisfying moments present, I feel myself not happy.

    Yes…happiness is a choice…not an automatic response….

    Positively.vibed and positively minded persons do have easy way to choose to be happy.

    negative vibed or minded person can search the happy moments aswell. I believe that it is hard but I´m sure it is possible!
    Feel and take the vibes from the other one who loves you!

      Hmmm…okey Commenter noonespecial, negative people can be happy also…I befriend them and care as well as love them- share with them how grateful I am with the gift of life…only, at times when there negative mood and power is strong that I avoid them…so as not to be influenced….lol

    I love one tree Hill!Thank you.Happy is a state of mind.It’s not permanent, it’s a position to look at the things in your, in others lives, in eating, sleeping, dressing, showering, even in working and petting your pets.With people and relationships it’s the hardest achievement, cause it’s extracted belief…so believe ..this is the nature of happiness.Nothing else.
