20 Inspirational Quotes about Happiness

Do you want to feel on top of the world? Is joie de vivre the natural state of your life?

Everyone wants to be happy. Yet, happiness becomes so elusive for those who are battling with various challenges of life. As for most people, the daily grind of life devolves to a sense of boredom and ennui that literally rob them of joy.

The emotion of happiness is as much an inner peace as it is an exuberant sense of excitement. A simple joy is that of light-heartedness, a sense of deep freedom we feel in our hearts. When we are in a meditative state, the inner peace and tranquillity we experience is a transcendental bliss.

There are times when we feel a bubbling sense of exuberance and elation. It is the time when we laugh to our hearts’ content or jump up to the sky and shout “Hooray! I did it!”

What we choose to do also bring us happiness. A smile, a listening ear, and a helping hand are all actions that will light up the heart of a person, bringing him or her much-needed joy and hope. Happiness needs to be shared for its potency to increase a thousand-fold.
