The Key To Happiness
Join 1000's of Authors at StreetArticles Today!

This article is going to be very hard for me to write in a way. Well I don’t think I am unhappy, but I don’t always feel happy. I read a book recently about happiness, and it was very good. It had 50 different ways to feel happier. It was a very simple book and the cover and illustrations are enough to make you smile. I really love to read, almost as much as I love to write.

There are many different ways to make yourself feel happy. There is meditation, writing things down, foods, medications, exercise, activities and the list could go on and on. These are all good things and can add to or multiply your happiness but to me the key to happiness is in yourself. Nothing outside can truly make you happy if you are not happy with yourself. The things you do should make you happy.

There is a part of the book that says to act happy, well I have tried this and it was not that easy for me. But I think people who are truly happy make the ones around them uncomfortable. They don’t know how to react to them because misery loves company. No matter how you see it being truly happy is hard to achieve, it is a daily mind set you must psych yourself into being.

Just look at the world around you, is it a happy place. Well it is a complex place with billions of people who are all really trying to achieve the same things. We all just want to be happy as defined by you. What makes you happy may not make someone else happy. There is no magic pill or anything else for that matter to make you happy.

Happiness is within you, it’s all around you. There are optimists and pessimists, there is good and evil in the world. There is joy in everything around you; you just have to find it. No one person can make you happy. You can not find yourself in another person. You control your emotions; you decide what you react to.

You may or may not know what makes you truly happy at this point in your life. Sometimes people go their whole lives without knowing true happiness. But if you are lucky one day soon you will know what it means to be truly happy. What will you do to work toward being happy? Because the key to true happiness is finding the joy within yourself.
