Happiness is

Happiness is

When you see the blue sky truly as blue

When the sunrays burst through the clouds

and reflect on the puddles on the ground

creating mirror images of your surroundings.

 

Happiness is

being invited to the comfort of someone else's home

to share a meal

and be appreciated as a guest.

 

Happiness is

being supported in your struggles

by friends, teachers, strangers

people that offer a helping hand

when you fall.

 

Happiness is

creating things

accumulating knowledge

getting your hands dirty

building something.

 

Happiness is

a way to look at life

to compare yourself with yourself only

to notice the good things in life

and be grateful.
