What is happiness?

I came across this quote on Pinterest the other day and I couldn't help but stop and reflect. 
What is happiness? We all have our own definition of happiness, but do we really know what causes this? Happiness isn't about the object that makes us happy, it's about the thought. Happiness is a mindset. This idea goes right back to the quote from Buddha. 

My happiness relies on me and my thoughts. If I can think it, then I can do it. It's the thought that lights the way. If I can do it, then I can inspire others. If I can inspire others, than I have achieved my goal. 

Here are some things that my awesome followers shared about what makes them happy. Most of these began with a single thought. 

Your future state of happiness relies solely on what you think. If you want to make a change, start with a single thought. Live happy!


  1. I think your right, we do control our own happiness!

    1. Totally! It's so easy to focus on the negatives of life, but it just takes one good thought to change ourselves and the world. :o)

  2. Great thought! I believe happiness is a state of mind. Mind over matter is such a powerful thing, we can change so much in our life if we can focus on the positives :)

    I love your Wordle!

  3. Wonderful thing to keep in mind. Have a great day!
