What's happiness?

If you ask a hundred people on the street, 'WHAT DO YOU WANT?' many of them would probably answer 'MONEY'. nowadays, many people are indeed stuck in financial crisis. therefore, if they had money to pay their debts, bill, charges et cetera, all their burdens would be lifted. when their burdens are gone, they can finally relax and be happy. What's happiness? happiness is an emotion that we feel when something is to our pleasure or when we are satisfied. that is why, people from every corner of the globe want to be happy. there are actually ways to gain and develop happiness and ways to help us stay happy.

Greedy people are never happy. they would keep wanting more and more of what they have. they would keep wanting more until the stuff they had could literally drown them alive. people who are not greedy however are easily pleased. they could feel on top of the world when the slightest good thing happens to them. besides, feeling an appreciation for the things that you have is yet another way to be happy. we should be thankful that we have our health, loving family and our caring friends. these are the people who had made you the better person that you are today. we should just deal with what we have, make the best of it and stay positive. it would truly help one to stay happy. 'a smile makes two', bear a smile pon your face and you, too, can make your friends happy. 
remember the time to be happy is now, the place to be happy is here. Although the world is full of suffering, it is full also of the overcoming of it.
