There is no one in this world who does not have the pursuit of happiness, a peaceful life. Everyone wants to be happy, but do you really understand what a happy life is? How to have a happy life or not?
In fact, the definition of happiness is varied, depending on each individual’s feelings. Many people think that happiness is very far away, but it is actually something that you create yourself.
What is a happy life?
Happy is an adjective that describes the state of being satisfied, satisfied with things around you. Or simply be happy with what you have.
Actually, the concept of happiness is very abstract and colorful. Exactly, it depends on each individual’s feelings, there are no specific conclusions. However, it is possible to define one of the states of happiness as joy.
If you don’t feel happy, don’t feel positive and optimistic, it’s not like you’re happy. Depending on the purpose of each person is different, as long as it helps you feel peace in your mind , relief, love of life, you are happy. So what is a happy life?
An outwardly successful life, a high position, or a lot of material things sometimes doesn’t go hand in hand with happiness. In fact, many people think that a happy life is about having a very flashy family, wealth, and high status. But in reality, that’s not really the case, only each person knows what they want, what they need.
Money, status will help us do many things, buy many things and those things can contribute to happiness. For example, helping you buy a car, buy a house, or be more convenient at work. But there will come a day when you suddenly realize, money can’t buy happiness directly.
In my 20s, when I was young, I rarely wondered what a happy life was. Because at that time, my front goal was just to get good grades, get good grades, graduate, find a job, and then go to work. Until now, when I have the opportunity to sit back and think, I wonder what happiness is?
I suddenly realized, a happy life is simply waking up every day feeling healthy, having peace in my heart , having a job I love and enough to live well, travel, visit family, lead parents go out.
And happiness is having a really reliable life partner, sharing housework and life, supporting each other in career, taking care of a small family together.
In the past, when I heard my parents say, “When you were born, I just wanted you to be healthy, full of fingers and toes, not get sick, and be happy in the future.” I just laughed and thought that my parents were lying, because I saw that every parent wanted their child to do well in school, wanted their child to be first in class, first in school, engineer or doctor.
Until now, when I grow up and get married, I understand that it is a sincere and sincere wish because for me life is enough to be happy. And only health and happiness are the two most important things that money and fame cannot buy.
