Happiness is not in our circumstances, but in ourselves. It is not something we see, like a rainbow, or feel, like the heat of a fire. Happiness is something we are. ~ John B. Sheerin
I saw this quote today and thought WOW, I know when I see a beautiful sunset or rainbow it brings a smile to my face and joy. So what is happiness? A while back I wrote a blog post called What is HAPPINESS? The blog post discussed the poll results from What are the ingredients of happiness? at that point in time the poll results were Joy, Love and Peace. At this moment of writing the poll results have changed to “Joy” being number one and “Love” number two.
The definition of “Happiness” according to Merriam -Webster’s Dictionary is the following:
: the state of being happy, well-being, contentment and joy
: an experience that makes you happy, pleasurable or a satisfying experience
: good fortune
The quote above by John B. Sheerin stating “happiness is in ourselves” I agree with that phrase and believe true happiness does comes from within. The last part of the quote “happiness is something we are”, I’m not totally sure about this statement. I would love for this part of the quote to be everyone however there are many people who are not happy within. As a certified professional coach I work with clients to pursue happiness in all aspects of life. Many of my happy moments were camping at the lake!
What are your happy moments?

Do you think happiness is not in our circumstances, but in ourselves?
One morning I was on my way to work and I saw this young couple sitting together waiting for the bus. I could just see the love radiating between the two of them. They were looking at some photos on her cell phone. It was just so beautiful seeing the two of them and just seeing the smiles on their face and the way that they sat together. The way that they looked at each other young love.
How do you keep that love alive in a long time relationship such as 5, 10, 20, 25, and 50 years?
What are the secret steps to keep it at that level so every time you are with this person you both still feel close to the same way that you felt at the beginning of your relationship?
Here are some example of possible ways:
Schedule once a week to go out to dinner or a date night.
Write a small text or email saying something nice or why you love your partner.
Say “I love you” at least everyday to your partner.
Do something small and nice for partner.
Watch a TV show once a week that you both like together.
Go for a walk together.
Eat dinner together and really listen to each other.
Reminiscence about the good times.
Talk nice to each other.
