What is happiness? Happiness is happiness. Well, it may sound stupid. But, it is. Nothing can actually explain what happiness is. My happiness is different from your happiness, your happiness is different from their happiness. All of us have different aspects of happiness and what truly makes us happy. That's the reason why happiness is hard to state in a definition.

Now the question is, how to be happy?

Key to the happiness in life

What is happiness? Happiness is happiness. Well, it may sound stupid. But, it is. Nothing can actually explain what happiness is. My happiness is different from your happiness, your happiness is different from their happiness. All of us have different aspects of happiness and what truly makes us happy. That's the reason why happiness is hard to state in a definition.

Now the question is, how to be happy? When you want to be happy, you have to reach balance in your life. Balance in every aspect of your life.

For instance, when you eat, you may not eat too much or too little. You should just eat an exact portion, the portion that makes you full but not too full and yet not making you hungry as well. It is also the same with every aspect of your life. You may not pull the string to the extreme. You have to make it in balance. Every extreme will cause us bad things.

Eating too much can cause us overweight. When we get overweight, disease will finally visit us more often and so many more bad things that an overweight can cause. Loving someone too much can cause us a broken heart when that someone not love us that much or when that someone behaves not the way we want it. Hoping too much can cause us a great pain when everything goes wrong.

There are still a lot more "too" that can damage us. That's the reason why, balance is essential in reaching happiness in our lives.

Happiness is not material things. When it comes to material, it will easily fade away. Happiness is a state of mind which can be created if you reach balance in your life as well. It is hard to state : I am happy, when you are actually having a great broken heart since your boyfriend cheated on you. This great broken hearted can be prevented by not loving your boyfriend too much. In this condition, you are ready for the worst to happen. When you reach that balance, even your boyfriend cheated on you, you will not cry a river anymore. You probably will cry only a single tear because of feeling disappointed of what had happened. When you reach balance in your life, happiness will sooner come to you.

So, never pull something to its extreme point. Just put it in the middle. Put it in balance so that you are not affected of the change that probably will happen. We never can control anything or anyone. What we can control is our own self. So, why don't we start our own happiness from ourselves and not counting on the happiness that our surroundings will bring?
