I have a friend who calls me once in a blue moon and updates me on himself... not the details, just how is feeling and how life is treating him. Today he asked me; "Are you happy?" Am I happy? Yes, I am. For once in my life I can say I am happy and contented. I cant give a reason or pinpoint one event or person responsible for it. All I can say is that when I go to bed at night, I know my day has been productive and well-lived. Yes, I am happy and if someone is actually doubting their state of happiness then he/she is not happy. One thing I have realised, happiness is an internal state of mind. An external factor cannot be a reason for happiness.. for joy yes, but not for happiness.
