Happiness! A state of mind that everyone wants to be in. What is happiness? It could mean different things to different people, mostly relative to other emotions and feelings.

Albert Camus said, "You will never be happy if you continue to search for what happiness consists of. You will never live if you are looking for the meaning of life."

Happiness for me is the feeling of utmost joy. I remember many moments in my life when I could say that I was really "happy". I felt on top of the world. My heart sang with joy and I would burst into a song. I would jump all over the place. I felt light and bursting with energy. And the best part of those moments was that I felt in love with everything around me. What a beautiful feeling. At that moment I was the center of the universe and everything that existed was meant for me. I felt "special" and beautiful inside.

Albert also said this, "When you have once seen the glow of happiness on the face of a beloved person, you know that a man can have no vocation but to awaken that light on the faces surrounding him; and you are torn by the thought of the unhappiness and night you cast, by the mere fact of living, in the hearts you encounter."

If only I could hold on to those moments in time. Rewind the clock, and relive those precious few moments all over again. Is it possible to be happy always? No, every silver lining will have a cloud attached to it.

"Happiness is the undying quest of life, the unquenchable thirst and the insatiable hunger of all human kind. Happiness is what we all seek for, what we long for. But can such bliss be nothing but an elusive state of mind, which is here one moment and gone the next, or is such a positive outlook attainable for a lifetime?" Perhaps it is.....
