Happiness is….by Shalini Bhalla

with my cat Tabasco - who makes me very happy!

with my cat Tabasco – who makes me very happy!

Happiness is sunshine
Happiness is rain

Happiness is finding my twin soul
Happiness is being a twin soul

Happiness is laughter
Happiness is tears

Happiness is my cat purring
Happiness is the birds chirping

Happiness is living
Happiness is breathing

Happiness is beginning
Happiness is finishing

Happiness is when loved ones visit
Happiness is when they go home

Happiness is in a full, noisy home
Happiness is in a quiet, empty home

Happiness is talking
Happiness is silence

Happiness is an active mind
Happiness is a peaceful mind

Happiness is in a warm summers evening
Happiness is in a crisp winters morning
Happiness is in a golden autumn afternoon
Happiness is in a bright spring dawn

Happiness is people’s company
Happiness is one’s own company

Happiness is in the old
Happiness is in the new

Happiness is the cry of a new born baby
Happiness is knowing the baby isn’t yours

Happiness is him snoring next to you
Happiness is you snoring next to him
Happiness is him NOT snoring

Happiness is a warming stew on a winters evening
Happiness is a refreshing salad on a hot summers day

Happiness is a glass of dry champagne
Happiness is a glass of cold water

Happiness is a hot cup of tea
(With a freshly made samosa)

Happiness is reading an interesting book
Happiness is listening to an uplifting song

Happiness is anticipating a planned activity
Happiness is relishing a spontaneous activity

Happiness is hearing good news
Happiness is giving good news

Happiness is in perceived opportunities
Happiness is in potential opportunities
Happiness is in taking opportunities

Happiness is watching your cricket team winning
Happiness is seeing the sportsmanship when your cricket team loses

Happiness is the excitement of a new relationship
Happiness is the comfort of a well worn relationship

Happiness is giving
Happiness is receiving

Happiness is teaching
Happiness is learning

Happiness is dancing
Happiness is stillness

Happiness is Jhooming on your own
Happiness is Jhooming with others

Happiness is chocolate
Happiness is cake
Happiness is chocolate cake
Happiness is chocolate cake
Happiness is chocolate cake…..

Happiness is the flickering flame of a scented candle
Happiness is a roaring open log fire

Happiness is the guilty pleasure of watching Neighbours
Happiness is delighting in a well made Bollywood film

Happiness is the scent of the wisteria draped on your house walls
Happiness is the feel of the grass dew on your bare feet

Happiness is the warm sunshine on your back
Happiness is the cool sea breeze on your face

Happiness is a busy day with fulfilling work
Happiness is a lazy day whiled away doing nothing

Happiness is a morning game drive
Happiness is a bush breakfast

Happiness is someone else doing the cooking
….and the washing up

Happiness is the English countryside
Happiness is the Kenyan savannah
Happiness is the Maldivian coast

Happiness is being involved
Happiness is being able to walk away

Happiness is good health
Happiness is overcoming bad health

Happiness is him making me laugh
Happiness is me making him laugh

Happiness is spending time with friends and family
Happiness is knowing you don’t have to live with them

Happiness is a fun, lively party
Happiness is when the party is at someone else’s house

Happiness is being able to feel the four main emotions – fear, anger, sadness and JOY
Happiness is being able to feel the most important emotion of all – LOVE

Happiness is loving others
Happiness is loving yourself

Happiness is healing yourself
Happiness is healing others

Happiness is sharing
Happiness is contagious

Happiness is balance
Happiness is balance in physical, emotional and mental wellbeing
Happiness is balance in mind, body and spirit

Happiness manifests into more happiness
Happiness manifests abundance

Happiness is memories of the past
Happiness is anticipation of the future

But most of all……. HAPPINESS IS BEING IN THE NOW!
