Happiness

Yesterday, during a week night going out, while enjoying a lovely warm evening and night with a cold gin & tonic on the table and talking comfortably with good company, I realised something very simple, yet truly important: being happy is manily enjoying and cherishing all those moments when you are not unhappy.

This means that you are able to appreciate all the small things in life and be happy, even though your days are not over the top amazing.

Unhappiness is a very serious and hard state of mind – and body too – whose only advantage is to teach you and allow you to relativise all the small problems you have to face (although they seem like huge monsters to you) and to low your expectations regarding everyone and everything.

That is when you reach a certain peace of mind that will enable you to live a happy life, where you are more aware of what is good and interesting.
