What happiness means to me.

Beautiful SunsetCredit: Larah“Happiness is when what you think, what you say, and what you do are in harmony.” 
  Mahatma Gandhi

Here are my own happiness quotes. I am not a philosopher, a philanthropist or a prophet; I’m just a woman, a mum, a wife, a daughter, a sister, a friend, I'm one of you. For the majority of time, I am a grateful, positive and happy person, obviously, as most people, I do also have those moments, when I ‘have had enough’, nevertheless I strive to pick myself up, turn the negatives into positives, accept the difficulties as opportunities, learn to forgive and to love more than to despise. 

I try to eliminate negative words like ‘hate’ from my vocabulary, instead I use often the words love, happy, beautiful, grateful. I'm the happiest when I think, say and do good things, just like Gandhi says. 

I love writing about pursuing happiness and that feeling of happiness is something we should all aim for.
