What is happiness to you?

Then I started to consider existential questions such as “Why are we here?” “What is the purpose of life?” “Does love really exist? Or is our mind an invention?”.

I believe happiness is a state of mind and lasts only a fraction of second (maybe a little more). Being happy demands certain conditions such as being healthy or having intelligence and freedom. If you are able to walk from one place to another, if you can ride your bike to school or work or if you can dance all night long with your friends you should feel happy. If you have the capacity to solve problems, the ability to organize ideas and arguments, if you are creative and funny you must be a happy person. If you are independent to follow your passion, to pursue your dreams, to travel, to eat your favorite meal, to discuss your opinions and beliefs, if you are a free bird, you are definitely a happy one.
