Happiness is relative.
What makes me happy will definitely may not make you happy. What makes me happy at a certain period in time will change from day to day. If I’m longing to be outside on a beautiful and I finally get there that will definitely make me happy, but that may not make me happy everyday.
It’s all about a circumstance, a moment, a smile, a joke, a song…etc. Happiness comes with it’s ebbs and flows. The one thing I do know is EVERYONE DESERVES TO BE HAPPY!

Now what is your happy?
(I know we’ve all heard the song a million times, but it does make you feel happy, right?)
Happy to me is being the best person I can possible be that’s why I’m constantly on the move and trying something different. Happy to me is being active: running, hiking, biking, etc. Happy is bringing a smile to someone’s face when they need it the most. Happy is finding success, even in the smallest things in life. I usually find happiness in the smallest things but it took me a minute to get to this point.
Happy will vary from person to person and situation to situation. The most important thing about happiness is finding it for yourself; not trying to find happiness for another person. It is a great thing to want to make other people happy, but your happiness should come first. YES, I know there are times when you will need to be your happiness behind the needs of someone else and that’s fine. Don’t let someone else’s happiness stand in the way of your happiness a majority of the time. You know what that leads to? Unhappiness, guilt and resentment!
Never feel guilty for having a great day and finding your happy. Never let anyone else define what your happy should be in life. And always always strive to find your happy!
So what’s your happy?
