About The Forever Word

I’m a Christian who loves God and my family. I’m a Mother of 2 beautiful children, a 6 year old daughter and almost 2 year old son. I’m addicted to Digital Scrapbooking and Photography. I also love cooking, baking, gardening and anything that makes me excite like Blogging and travel!

“I’m Finding Happiness”

What is the secret of Finding Happiness?  I suppose you could look at it from many different points of view and get many different answers to that question.  For example, what makes my two-year-old happy might be completely different from what makes me – or any grownup in general – happy (photography).  So the first thing is that is can absolutely depend on a person’s age or stage of life.

Also what makes a woman happy might be completely different from what makes a man happy.  But again, these are all just differences of perspective surely.  There must be a key that is common to all – that fits, in a general sort of way, every person alive.

When I say, ‘key to happiness’ for everyone, what else could that be but love?  Who doesn’t feel joy at being loved and also loving in return?  (Well, just for the sake of being thorough, I suppose some – but I suspect the majority all feel the same thrill of love.)

Also, who doesn’t feel a greater sense of wellness from the feeling of being loved and loving someone else in return?  (The two things are inescapably connected, like two sides of a coin.)  You can be made to feel sick – and in extreme cases even die – from negative stress of unhappiness.  (Maybe stress is just the absence of happiness).  And the opposite is also true:  You can experience greater health and physical wellbeing from the emotions arising out of happiness.  Try smiling for any length of time and see if what I’m saying doesn’t hold true.

So we see that happiness and health themselves are also connected.  One even determines the other.  This is good news because just as someone can learn or choose to love and be loved, so can a person learn to be happy.  It just takes some time and some effort is all.
