Happiness defined

I recently was asked a question that brought a lot of thoughts to my mind, so I had to share it.

What does happiness mean to you? What makes you happy?

After being asked, many things came to mind.

Happiness, to me, is seeing a smile on a familiar face. 

When I’m home, I take a second, sit back, and observe and enjoy seeing my family be happy. I see them laughing, smiling, having a good time ,and there’s no way to express how much happiness that brings me; it makes my heart smile. 

Another thing that brings me happiness is being surrounded by people who share the same love for God as me. I wish everyone could experience this kind of happiness. 

I used to go to a church camp called Super Summer ,and we would have worship every night where we would sing and praise God. There would be at least 500 people there, all in high school. 

When the band would play, hands would go up, everyone would be singing and just focusing on themselves and God, no one else. There’s nothing like feeling the presence of God in that one building, working on every single person in there. 

There’s something about knowing that that many people feel that same deep love for God that brings me happiness; it’s overwhelming. Knowing they understand and feel that kind of reckless love is awesome because everyone deserves that.

A lot of little things make me happy as well. Seeing my dog after a long day, listening to my boyfriend talk about his day, getting a hot cup of coffee, watching my food being put on the table at the restaurant. 

I could go on and on. I feel like I have a very full life that brings me lots of happiness.

It might just be how I see things, so always remember: your cup is always half full, not empty.
