Be authentic and always be in your heart no matter the circumstances. HappIness is a feeling on a sliding scale spectrum of many emotional and mental possibilities. Being happy is to be ‘ok’ with whatever life is encompassing for you. To be happy is positive, but there are more feelings which are higher, and of course encompass happiness.

Most select different variations of complacency, causing back and forth rowing against the tide, then floating with where, and what ever it takes them. Ask most if they are happy, and it’s the ‘thing’ to say that they are. Ask questions like: are you excited about life, fulfilled, in deep love with yourself, equipped to best handle all that comes your way, positive or negative, and do you give back to life frequently? Sadly those qualities are often lacking in those who claim to be happy. One way or the other your answer to raising the qualities of happiness might be, try to ‘Make Happy’ at least two persons daily. But, make sure that…One of them is YOURSELF’!
