Hey everyone, please give a warm welcome to my guest blogger today, Irene Roth. If you’ve got teenagers in the house, be sure to visit her blog and get tips for teen girls.
Hi, my name is Irene Roth of
www.adolescentgirlsblog.wordpress.com and I am here to
discuss a favourite topic of mine: Happiness. Happiness is
one of those amorphous concepts that not too many people
can bring about successfully. But why is this?
We seem to live in one of the most richest and happiest
seeking times in history, yet it seems that we just can’t seem
to be content with what we have. We always seem to want
more, buy more, and accumulate more.
Don’t get me wrong, I am not against buying and making
yourself happy. But I think that a steady diet of getting more
and more creates dissatisfaction and unhappiness in time.
After a while, we are never happy. And when this happens,
no matter how much we have, we need more and more.
Last time, I reflected about how a person can be happy no
matter how much pain and hardship she has to endure. This
week, I want to leave you with the thought that you could be
happy regardless of how much you have or buy. Happiness
is a state of mind and being and it has very little, if anything
to do with things and outside circumstances.
So what is happiness? It is a state of mind in which we
find contentment and peace in all of our daily activities. It is
an experience of solitude and appreciation for everything
that we have. It is an way of perceiving the world that
makes us smile, regardless of what is going on in our lives.
~ To our happiness!
