I haven't written an article in a while, I thought it would be a good idea to write another article on happiness. Happiness is something that many individual strive for, this can be via their goals and aspirations. Happiness is said to be a journey and not a destination. I believe this to be true. I believe that happiness that we encounter in life comprises of small moments in our lives that amount to mere sentiments of happiness. Those mere sentiments eventually become significant to us when those sentiments of happiness are reinforced. Eventually, we experience happiness continuously until we are holistically happy.

My father used to always say to me that 'happiness is a journey, it is not just one day', and that was a saying which he derived from his mother, who has now sadly passed. My inference from this statement was that, the journeys in which we experience happiness have a great deal of effect on our emotions and well-being. Rather than striving for a happy destination, why don't we just strive to be happy. The journey in which we take to reach our destinations can be just as rewarding as reaching our destination.

I believe that happiness derives from positive external influences. For example, when we have a positive experience that we strongly feel happy about those feelings of content are apparent. I also believe that happiness derives from feelings associated to affection, fulfilment and gratitude. When we experience love, or when we have love for something or someone, happiness can come as a result of that affection felt. Of course when that feeling of affection is short-lived, it can contribute to a lack of happiness. Moreover, gratitude and being grateful for your existence, and the blessings God has blessed you with in life, positive experiences that can lead to success and happiness on a grand-scale can vastly contribute to ones happiness.

Lastly, fulfilment is a key element in achieving happiness. Fulfilment can come from aspiring to goals, and ultimately achieving them. Whatever goals one aspires to, whether it is a professional goal, a life goal, or to adopt a more optimistic outlook on life rather than a pessimistic one. For instance, it is normal to feel feelings of apathy and those feelings of apathy to lead to negative thinking. It is fascinating the way the human mind will paramount negative experiences at the expense of positive ones. In my opinion happiness can strongly derive from out mindsets in life. The mind is so powerful, and positive emotions should be the catalyst of our successes. Positive emotions should also be the catalyst to fuel our happiness to the extent to which that happiness is maintained and we can flourish as human beings.

RalRey Good article, I have enjoyed reading it, and many things come to my mind to comment, but I prefer to say some. I agree with what your father thought, happiness should be a constant and not a day, a moment that is desperately sought and then diluted or vanished. The search for happiness is very good, but when that happiness is based on feelings and external things, other people, the spouse, for example, a job, etc., happiness is an unstable matter because the feelings are unstable, they are changing , and people and work also come and go. Basing happiness on God is better because God is not changeable, and does not disappoint, does not betray, is not unstable.

NyishaHv @RalRey I'm glad you liked it, I am quite religious and to be honest I do try my best to cherish each happy moment. It's good not to take blessings for granted. Also happiness sometimes can seem like it's not attainable but I've found prayer is extremely therapeutic and realising that we are not alone, that there is a higher being watching over us

RalRey @NyishaHv Yes, of course, we should not take anything for granted, we have to work it day by day, that is, how to water a plant and feed it with what we have at hand, as well as we have to strengthen a relationship, like a plant, with water of love and details. And since you mention it, prayer, for example, is a resource that allows us to water the relationship with God, which is not a matter of religion, but a way of life, which is how I take it, and it works, which I testify.
