The Topic is Happiness.

What is happiness? It is a feeling of contentment caused when your mental health is good and you acknowledge that you have acquired or achieved something that makes you happy, or you realise that there is no reason to be unhappy. It is a mental attitude and it can be a choice, however, for someone suffering depression, this is not something that happens quite as well. So, In quoting Aeschylus below, I acknowledge that for some of us, simply choosing to be happy, doesn’t quite work as well.


Happiness is a choice that requires effort at times. - Aeschylus


“Money or things can’t buy you happiness, they can only provide a level of misery you can live with. “


I would also like to share with you a song lyric/poem that I wrote a while ago. It’s called Happiness:


When will I find Happiness?

I try to keep hopeful, but I confess

I have almost given up

Dreaming, hoping of the day

When I will find

Someone to love me, who is kind.


Happiness, I admit it, I am in Distress

The time left to me is getting less

Do I still have the chance

Of attracting someone nice?

Am I too Old?

Will I be left out in the cold?


When I was young I played the fool

Thought settling down was just uncool

But now I know I wasted time.

Looking back, I’ve passed my prime.

Will I ever find what I am looking for?

Or will I continue living without…..


Happiness. When will I find Happiness?

I feel my life is such a shameful mess.

And yet, somehow, I know

There is always tomorrow,

and I will find,

The one for me is, in my mind

and I’ll find happiness.

  1. Thanks for the tag K 🙂
    I will pop the basics into a new post … and I work on it when I have chance (next ten days are going to be intense as I am doing lots of extra work…I have scheduled all my posts already) but once it is in my drafts folder…it will be published at some point 🙂

    1. WOW, you are far more organised and methodical than me. I admire that. Particularly now I’ve started working again (and finally have some income YAY) I am finding my blogging time becoming very sporadic. Did you notice I wasn’t quite as regular?
