Comments29/08/2016 #48 Steve Brady#24 Thank you for your reply, Fatima...especially the blessing at the end: "Have an awesome life filled with Happiness Steve :)" That means so much to me in my current circumstances. It's a wonderful thing to write words that your readers need at the time. You're a blessing, Fatima.29/08/2016 #46 Fatima Williams#45 It's sure does sharing the best part the chorus for those who haven't heard this one by Pharrel Williams
" Clap along if you feel like a room without a roof
Because I'm happy
Clap along if you feel like happiness is the truth
Because I'm happy
Clap along if you know what happiness is to you
Because I'm happy
Clap along if you feel like that's what you wanna do"
Clap along if you feel you find happiness on beBee
Because I'm Happy28/08/2016 #41 CityVP Manjit#40 Dear Fatima, where else does happiness start or end other than within ourselves. It is we who have made it a thing by trying to make it a having rather than a being. One day my mother will pass from this world and it will not be a happy day and on that day the gift of sadness will be more accessible than the gift of happiness. That I can access that within me means that it can either be a blessing (a gift) or a curse (a theft). Happiness as a curse is not at all the same thing as happiness as a blessing. Happiness is not a simple off and on switch and it is nothing without sadness, it is a flow that emerges from within, which is what makes the pursuit of happiness an endless chase of vanity. The greatest vanity of all is to explain happiness when we are happy. If we need to go look for happiness in other things or people, all we will find there are the symbols and expressions of their vanity, and not our bliss. Take the Woodkids remix [Unhappy Version) of Pharrel Williams song Happy https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=AyBFx18E6O4 - whatever you feel, whatever it triggers, how it effects you begins with what it evokes in you. This is what Socrates meant by "Know Thyself" - so why use my language or experiences of happiness - when they are within you and yours to discover? This means your question is a rhetorical question, which means you already know the answer, but are you ready for the practice, a practice that is yours to discover.27/08/2016 #37 CityVP ManjitIf I get asked if happiness is important to me, this is like asking me "which of your children do you love?", but I reply "I love all my emotions" and unless I can love all of them, how can one of them be more important? It is when we hate some or most of our emotions that we are most likely to be in a search for happiness but searching for happiness is like getting on a rocket ship and head out into the distant Universe so that we can find Earth.27/08/2016 #35 Deb HelfrichI also love it when someone says something unexpected that opens a vista to a new insight. From our 2-D interactions, I have to concur that you do bring happiness, @Fatima Williams and this is a super-power! Go forth and radiate happiness with your ability to ignite the smiles of everyone you interact with.27/08/2016 #31 AnonymousDear @Fatima Williams, the more I am 'getting to know you' by your writing here on beBee, the more I am fascinated and delighted by the beauty of your words and your character! The message of this buzz resonates strongly with me, so much so that if you were here, I would give you a 'high 5' (followed with a hug!) This my friend, is what I call 'love in action', which is how I try to live out this one, precious life - so we are kindred spirits! To BEE 'love in action', to offer my attention, my smile, my heart to another. If not this, what then is the joy of being human? The twinkle in your writing is the essence of happiness - we are all blessed!
