Happiness: the state of being happy. That’s the literal definition, but what is the personal one? The definition of happiness isn’t a one size fits all. We ourselves, our likes, loves and guilty pleasures define our own happiness. Here is my definition.
My family: My partner watching movies, doing each others nails, playing pokemongo, taking walks, cooking and going out to eat (we like food), and doing things together. My son playing video games, and telling me whats going on, and even getting me into games he may think I like. My daughter colouring, ‘reading’ books, or general playing that a two year old does. My pets, being exactly the great companions they are.
Random things that make me happy. Going window-shop, going into PetCo to look at the fuzzbutts and beardies, eating ice cream like anytime of the day, buying nail polish and using with it afterwards, buying stickers, and any sort of crafty shit, and getting to take a bubble bath. Anything with M n’ Ms, gerkin pickles or dark chocolate makes me drool, which means I’m happy. Good books, long naps, comfy shirts, no pants, loud music, artsy crafts, stuffies, and cute funny videos can all be added to the list.
There are a few special things I hold close to my heart, and are the driving force of my happiness. My Partner for always supporting me and letting me be myself. For loving me regardless of how much of a pain I can be and for seeing the goofy side of me and loving me more because of it. For always making me laugh and doing all the things I love even if it means watching the doopy movies I like.
My true friends for always having my back and willing to make memories with me at any time, even 3:30 in the morning (even if its just texting). For pushing me to be a better person and believing in me every step of the way. For doing the stupid things with me, and staying my friend through all my weird phases.
All of these memories, things and people don’t even begin to spell out my definition of happiness, but that’s okay because I’m still building it every day. I have a lot more life to live, places to go, people to meet, and things to discover. I’ll keep creating my personal definition, and keep searching for the little things that make me smile.
