I recently just checked out Google’s definition of “Happy”. Apparently it’s ‘feeling or showing pleasure or contentment.’
I checked because I have been wondering if I’m really happy or if I’m as happy as I should be or if I should be happy at all.
I’ve been thinking … Who determines what should make me happy ?
Who measures the degree of my happiness and sets the level it should be?
At what stage of life am I ‘allowed’ to be happy ?
Can I choose to be happy now even when I haven’t met all the criteria that determines happiness ?
Can I feel or show pleasure and contentment now instead of waiting for sometime in the unpredictable future ?
I think I’m going to do just that .
