Happiness, what does it mean to you? I've loved looking at these famous quotes on happiness and what it means to people. Happiness is a word that has always echoed around my head, from a young age my parents told me that the most important thing to be in life, was happy. Rather than pressuring me to keep up that hobby that I hated, or grind myself down stressing over exams, happiness, was always a priority, making my childhood full of wonderful memories and very little stress or pressure.
As we get older it's sometimes harder to feel content, genuinely serene, not stressed. This month however, we're reminding ourselves of the simple importance of happiness.
So do you agree with Buddha, that happiness is increased by sharing it? Or William Morris, you believe that happiness lies in simplicity? Do flowers make you happy, is a violin your source of euphoria, do you believe that nothing is more attractive than a happy person? Take some time out to think about what happiness means to you, and carry that with you in May, our happiness month in #mybestself
Thousands of candles can be lit from a single candle, and the life of the candle will not be shortened. Happiness never decreases by being shared
Happiness is when what you think, what you say, and what you do are in harmony
If you want others to be happy, practise compassion. If you want to be happy, practise compassion
The true secret of happiness lies in taking a genuine interest in all the details of daily life
I believe that a lot of how you look is to do with how you feel about yourself and your life. Happiness is the greatest beauty secret
It's not possible to experience constant euphoria, but if you're grateful, you can find happiness in everything
If you want to be happy, be
To me, flowers are happiness
We all want to help one another. Human beings are like that. We want to live by each other's happiness, not by each other's misery
Happiness, for me, is a function of the number of people I love, and I think joy and happiness is directly related to how many people are in our lived and how deeply we are bonded with those people
A table, a chair, a bowl of fruit and a violin; what else does a man need to be happy?
Power means happiness; power means hard work and sacrifice
Nothing brings me more happiness than trying to help the most vulnerable people in society. It is a goal and an essential part of my life - a kind of destiny
What's your secret to happiness?
