TRUE HAPPINESS

What is Happiness?People have agonized over this question for centuries, and often we ask ourselves, How do we find happiness in this life?
We answer without sometimes looking deeper for solutions that could last longer and have more benefits.Let’s firstly look at what happiness is not.
Feeling Good All The Time, If feeling good all the time were our only requirement to happiness then we would all probably cause a huge shortage of cocaine in the market since  well known for keeping people high and happy but for a short while then back to the normal.When you ask people what makes their lives worth living, they hardly say anything about their mood. They are more likely to cite things that they find meaningful, such as their work or relationships. Research suggests that if you focus too much on trying to feel good all the time, you’ll actually undermine your ability to feel good at all.
Also happiness is Not about being Rich or affording everything you want. Just living below the poverty line certainly makes it hard to be happy, beyond that, money does not appear to buy happiness. Therefore we see people with all the luxury and still wishing and wanting to take the little from the poor. More so you can be rich today and poor tomorrow, there’s no guarantee that richness last forever.Happiness is also  Not A Final Destination. “Are we there yet?” is often applied to discussions of happiness, as if a person works towards happiness and Arrives there.Now, to answer the question to what happiness is. We tend to look for the quick and easy fix, like taking an anxiety pill or watching TV. Yet we do all these and after few minutes of relaxation we come back to own tired and sad self.
Happiness therefore per research is a combination of how satisfied you are with your life (for example, finding meaning in your work) and how good you feel on a day-to-day basis. Simply put it’s a state of being happy and my most liked definition for it has been as…Happiness is that feeling that comes over you when you know life is good and you can’t help but smile.
Life in its context  is a series of experiences and we live our lives from one experience to another one until we cease having them. Our True Happiness is derived from helping ourselves, reaching out to others through any means no matter how small as far as its given wholeheartedly.Life in its context  is a series of experiences and we live our lives from one experience to another one until we cease having them.

Having money, raising family and all other luxuries gives us some sort of happiness and joy, but in making the happiness of others your want you tend to open up your heart for more of it. We end up feeling satisfied and fulfilled in life.Sometimes in reaching out to others we feel it can only be done through Money, or gifts. But we can always give out to others through making time for them.
The gift of time is often more valuable to the receiver and more satisfying for the giver than the gift of money. We don’t all have the same amount of money, but we all do have time on our hands, and can give some of this time to help others. Whether that means we devote our lifetimes to service, or just give a few hours each day or a few days a year.
Also our passion should be the foundation for our giving. As stated it is not how much we give, but how much love we put into giving.  It should not be simply a matter of choosing the right thing, but also a matter of choosing what is right for us. When what you give to others is through your passion you won’t end up feeling depleted or taken advantage of.
There is a Chinese saying that goes:
If you want happiness for an hour, take a nap. If you want happiness for a day, go fishing. If you want happiness for a year, inherit a fortune. If you want happiness for a lifetime, help somebody” and for centuries, the greatest thinkers have suggested the same thing:
Happiness is found in helping others.
