You are happy? When looking in the mirror, do you like what you see? Do you feel fulfilled with your life?

Happiness is an incessant desire of every human being. The search for financial stability, for a better and more pleasurable job, for a successful career, a bigger house, material goods, friends, travel and so on. The fact is that the human being is never satisfied with himself and his life. The more you have, the more you want and this cycle does not end. If happiness is in the achievements we desire, then how can we truly achieve it?

But after all, what is happiness? Is it possible to be content with the life we ​​have without expecting something greater? What is the secret of this feeling that can provide individuals with well-being, good mood and a sense of joy and fulfillment?

According to a survey of 5,000 Californian Americans, happiness is contagious. When you are happy, this feeling is transmitted to family, friends and close people. According to this study, happiness would be like a wave of good vibes that we transmit and receive back.

Happiness is not in the acquisition of a new car, in changing a position or even in the birth of a child, it is a state of mind. It is a unique, personal and permanent decision. This search for things and more things, in fact, is nothing more than a mistake to satisfy a void that only full happiness can fill.

"Be happy for no reason is the most authentic form of happiness". Carlos Drumond de Andrade already said. Happiness is in the simple things in life. From deciding to wake up in a good mood, looking in the mirror and deciding to be happy, enjoying life to the fullest, enjoying today with the problems and challenges we face on a daily basis. Being happy is seeing in the little things a real reason to live. It's being grateful for the wonderful miracle of existing, and seeing a positive situation even in difficult situations. It's loving yourself, accepting yourself, forgiving yourself and forgiving the next too.

Being happy is linked to the fact that you really know yourself. It's knowing who you are, knowing where you come from, knowing what your purpose is for being here, knowing what your talent is and what you can do with it, knowing what you're going to leave for those who stay the day you go.

May happiness not depend on money, time or luck, but on a simple attitude. May we find this precious feeling in the simple things in life. Be her from the inside out. Because only from the moment we decide and throw away everything that is not good, can we conquer the long-awaited happiness.

True happiness is the one that springs from the depths of our soul and infects those around us, it is a state of mind that emanates from our being and transcends time and space. Happiness is a choice, it's a decision. So choose to be happy, spread, sow happiness wherever you go and help make your neighbor's life a little happier.
