My Definition of Happiness, Imrana Bista, Runner Up, Wordism Poush

my definition of happiness


Happiness. It is not measurable, profitable, nor trad-able. Yet, above all else in the world, it is what people seek. They want to have happiness, and want to know they have a lot of it. But happiness, like air or water, is a hard thing to grasp in one’s hand. It is intangible.

Thousand of candles can be lightened from single candle and life of a candles will not be shorted. Happiness never decreased from being shared a smile is happiness you will find right under your nose. Every day is new day you will never be able to find happiness if you don’t move on.

In general sense, Happiness is feeling giving or expressing pleasure. Happiness is feeling which comes when we realize our life is good. When we got something more than we deserve or what we want we become happy. We become happy when we get success we even become happy when other become unsuccessful for example: if I am one to passed exam out of 50 Student I will be happy. I will be more happy knowing that other 49 are fail than I am passed .If I lost Rs 100 I will be worried if at the same time I heard another has lost Rs 200 I will be satisfy. My tension will be relief convincing that, I have loss only 100 and my 100 is safe. It’s a human nature not only me, we all human is guided by this nature. It’s temporary happiness. But if we want happiness in permanent way we shouldn’t assume that everything is perfect it means that you should have decided to look beyond the imperfectness.
Some people believe that happiness is an end goal while others take it as the beginning point to greatness. Generally, happiness has to do with an emotional and mental state of welfare that can be characterized through pleasant and positive emotion such as contentment and joy.

It is no doubt true that the majority of people would like to be happy in their lives while the personal nature of happiness makes it difficult to describe because it is something different to each individual persons. For examples ;some people derive a sense of satisfaction from earning money or achieving success whereas for others health and family are more important, to be a topper is happiness for a student and to get a job is happiness for unemployed person, similarly getting love, friendship, help and to get more than we aspect or what we a want is happiness.
Once a motivational speaker came to our collage and he called 20 student in front of him and give each one a balloon and asked to write own name with marker pen and all balloons are collected and put into another room and he asked to find a balloon which had their names within 5 minutes, everyone was crazily searching for their name ,colliding with each other pushing around others and there was utter chaos at the end of five minutes no one could find their own balloon now each one was asked to randomly collect a balloon and give it to the person whose name was written on it .within a minutes everyone had their own balloons and speakers begin exactly this is happening in our lives everyone is frantically looking for happiness all around not knowing where it is .our happiness lives in the happiness of other people give them their happiness and you will get your own happiness.

I usually describe happiness in the sense of more satisfaction. Happiness is not necessarily some pleasure experience but neutral sort of experience, that can bring deep satisfaction. I believe peace of mind. That peace of mind also comes firstly from warm heartedness. That I think reduce ill feeling towards others and also reduce distrust. I never consider myself as a something special if I consider myself different from other like, I m here and it makes me selfish and or even more which may forced me to expect more i.e respect from others, more money better everything and such expectation leads unhappiness. I forget all these things and simply consider I am one of the seven billion human being are mentally, emotionally, intellectually .we are from same category and level. The secret of being true happy is accepting here we are and life and making the most of everyday. One essential stander of living is being able to be happy. We always complain what we don’t have. We are all unique well all have our own qualities and abilities as soon as we realize this our life will be happy we unnecessarily compare with others and become sad we never value what we have the person who is satisfy with what he/she have is the most satisfy person in the world.

To wrap all,
One of the best things in life is realizing you are perfectly happy without the things you thought needed the most. Happiness is all within ourselves, in the way of thinking. Particular thing doesn’t give us happiness it may give satisfaction and thinking towards that satisfaction makes us happy, actually not that things. The greatest challenge in the life is discovering who you are and second greatest is being happy with what you find.
