Publisher's Summary

So what is happiness then? For you? Whatever your answer is, chances are that it is going to be different from my answer or even your parent’s, sibling’s, or friend’s answer. Happiness means different things to different people. For some, it may be spending some time with the one that they love, or for some, it may be spending hours on trying to do something they are passionate about; while for some, it is just laughing your heart out with the closest of friends.

So what exactly happens when you are genuinely happy? No, I am not asking for the science of it all; I mean the feeling. What does it feel like? Regardless of the reason why you’re happy, there is this feeling of contentment that comes with it, and it remains common for all kinds of happiness. Wait! By contentment, I mean the one that equals to inner satisfaction, and not the one these modern marketing gurus keep screaming about.

However, trying to define happiness won’t make it constant though, will it? It won’t because happiness is never constant; it is always fleeting. You can’t run around collecting happiness in a jar, and then opening it whenever you feel like you need it. Happiness was never meant to be constant; it is fleeting, and all you can do is embrace it while it lasts.

So if we don’t have any control over happiness, why even bother after all? Yes, happiness always manifests itself and you cannot control it to the way you may want to, but you can do things that would help increase the frequency of its manifestation. Or put in simpler words, you can do things on a regular basis that will eventually give you genuine happiness. It’s like telling you which road to go to find happiness, but you don’t know when you’ll find it; but you’ll find it for sure.
