Do you know how you feel when you are genuinely happy? Can you describe it, put it into words? Many people cannot. They equate happiness either with boisterous euphoria or over-the-top laughter, neither of which may represent genuine happiness. Descriptions of happiness are all over the map since each brain differs. Genuine happiness does have some things in common, however:
· There is a sense of real pleasure in your brain, not a competitive, anxious pleasure, but a calm and joyful mindset
· There is a sense of gratitude that you are alive and that you have been fortunate enough to connect with a brain or two (or several if you are truly fortunate) that enhances this perception.
Some describe happiness as “being in flow.” Being in flow is an interesting term. More tomorrow.
