What is happiness?

What is happiness?

I believe happiness depends on the person. According to the poll results on my website https://coachingforinspirationwithpatti.com/2014/04/11/what-are-the-ingredients-of-happiness/ as of 11/9/14:

Joy, Love and Peace were the ingredients of happiness.  Faith and Family were very close behind.

What do these results tell us?  How do we receive joy, love and peace into our lives?

After pondering on these questions I wrote down some things which provide me joy, love and peace.

Here are a few things I wrote down:

  • Drinking a large cup of coffee on a cool day
  • Watching the sunrise and sunset
  • Taking a hike in the beautiful outdoors
  • Spending time with my family and friends
  • Reading a good book

When examining the list I noticed these were simple things.  Are the simple things in life what give us joy, love and peace?  Are we so busy with other things that we don’t take the time for the simple things?

What does happiness mean to you?    I would love to see your comments and thoughts. ~ Patti
