Happiness Is...



Although Professor Dumbledore is merely a character from a children's book, created from JK Rowling's imagination and recorded in black and white, he is still one of the most intelligent people that I have ever known...even if he is only alive in my mind. .  
His quote (above) is pure genius and out of the all the quotes listed on Google, this one is the most correct portray of happiness. You know what happiness is, right? According to my Oxford Dictionary it is defined as 'feeling or showing pleasure or contentment'. But is that all happiness is? A sentence containing 6 words?

To me being happy and expressing happiness is so much more. Its one of the most important emotions we, as human beings, are capable of feeling. It is one of the best emotion we are capable of feeling! It cannot be defined so briefly, so inconsiderately....so unhappily. To me, happiness is...
  • When you are surrounded by the people you love and care for the most, because you know they don't have the choice to stop loving you. They always will. 
  • Doing something simple and inexpensive, thinking 'I never want this to end'
  • Finding yourself staring up at the night sky and smiling for no reason
  • Hearing a song that takes you back to your childhood
  • Waking up to the sound of birds singing
  • Smiling for so long your face aches
  • Smelling cakes baking in the oven 
  • Making other people happy
  • Your morning cup of tea 
  • When you say 'Life eh?' and can't stop grinning
  • Getting into bed at night, looking up at the ceiling and thinking  'That was a good day' 
  • When it rains and your indoors
  • The day your family watches a film together 
  • Summer 
  • Going through hell and coming out the other side stronger 
  • Curling up on the sofa with a good book
  • Making your parents proud 
  • Strawberries and cream 
  • Looking back at the past, smiling 
  • Achieving something, even if it is only something 
  • Laughing so hard it hurts
  • Bright colours 
With all that be to happy for, why are so many people still not smiling? 

Spreading happiness through out the world.

Hope you catch some,
Love Beth xx
