What Happiness Is, It Is, and Is Not What It’s Not

This new year, life’s got a new meaning. Means and ends offer some sort of meaning to our existence. But we know we are far from knowing it completely. Leave aside the serious talk to the boring academicians, who never know how and where to stop. We can stop when we know a little bit of purposes and we can stop before it exceeds a known limit. Long story short, life is happiness. Others are just secondary.
You will never be happy if you continue to search for what happiness consists of. You will never live if you are looking for the meaning of life.”
ALBERT CAMUS

Seek Not, Just Feel
Happiness is a choice, you decide

When the universe is so relative, though it is hopeless to see where it begins, we have the advantage to interpret the definition of living and happiness on our own. The freedom to expression is as contagious as the happiness; because we don’t even need a helping hand to comprehend it but just make a stylishly happy statement to ourselves and others.

It follows automatically that life is all about how happy we can be. The extra accessories helps only in consolidation or making things somehow complete. We have the meanings, which can be varied as the number of people living in this lonely globe. When the comment is free, everybody got an opinion!

Still, nothing matters if we find in life, in finding a few means of happiness, not necessarily by force or intentionally. Alternatively, it should be spontaneous and this should accentuate the quality and the depth. In building the bridge to happiness, the end can as well be possessing the finest nuances of happiness again and nothing more. The caveat is in seeking the hopes and the means: you should not search for it should come naturally.

Life is a full-time job. The earnings should be in the highest amount of happiness.

The Science of Happiness

For such an important factor, experts are delving into the layers of our body, physically, mentally and spiritually. In positive psychology, Martin Seligman has put forward the concept of PERMA —or the five attributes, from which fulfilling them makes us the happiest. [Seligman, M.E.P. (2004). Can Happiness be Taught? Daedalus journal, Spring 2004.] 
  1.     Pleasure (tasty food, warm baths, etc.),
  2.     Engagement (or flow, the absorption of an enjoyed yet challenging activity),
  3.     Relationships (social ties have turned out to be extremely reliable indicator of happiness),
  4.     Meaning (a perceived quest or belonging to something bigger), and
  5.     Accomplishments (having realised tangible goals).

“No medicine cures what happiness cannot.” ―Gabriel Garcí­a Márquez
