Happiness is…

Happiness, a word defined differently for everyone. For some, happiness is money, wealth and for others happiness is friends and family. My friend is going through a rough time at the moment and that is what inspired me to make this article. What we really should be happy about are the little things, things we take for granted. An ‘exercise’ I like doing when I am feeling down is to count all the things around you you are grateful of. It can be as small as a spoon you are lucky enough to have and use. Or a pencil to write. Just looking around and counting these leads you to feeling lucky, well, to me it does. Here are some things you probably take for granted.

Happiness is family that sticks with you and supports you through everything. Happiness is a sister who annoys you constantly because it’s just enjoyable for her to watch you get angry. Happiness is a brother who steals your things and gives them back months after. Happiness is a mother who makes the best cookies. Happiness is a father who makes the weirdest jokes.

Happiness is friends who tease you for something you did years ago. Happiness is a friend who listens when you’re upset. Happiness is when you’re having the best time with your best friends.
