There are a lot of differing opinions on what happiness is. For the most part, people have this idea that happiness is this constant sense of euphoria free from troubles. This is a very western thought. The idea that a feeling can be permanent, which of course is not the way life works. Life is dynamic. It always changes. Sometimes for the better, and sometimes for the worse.
I tend to believe that Happiness is more of a sense of well-being. It is a sense of balance between the good and the bad. An understanding of the flow between positive and negative emotions. Sometimes the flow is more into the negative emotions, and that is okay. It allows us to work through those sad feelings to come out with something more positive.
Happiness always changes. It’s never constant, but it’s always a flux in balancing the good and bad within us.
So if I can wish anyone anything during this Christmas season it’s a sense of well-being.
