The causes of happiness
Happiness may come and go like the seasons of the year. Everyone can find happiness according to their personality. In my opinion I can find the happiness in these three: family, health and good education.
The first cause of happiness I will mention is the family. This is the most important cause because family is the secret of the happiness. Most of happiness that we experience comes from feeling of save and peace that we feel with our families. For example, when I think about my best happiest moment; I realized that have been the times with my family doing regular things. Another thing I would like to mention is that the parents or the adults in the family they seemed to guide and advise us to have a better and a happy life.
The second cause of happiness is health. The health is wealth. If you don’t have a good health you will have less happiness. The people who are not being in a good health are less happy than the people who enjoy with a perfect health. And the health contain in healthy body and mind. For example, when I was sick two weeks ago I have to stay in bed and I can’t move that’s made me so sad and bored.
The third cause of happiness is good education. If you get a good education you will make your parents proud of you and that will make you and your parents happy. And if you have an excellent Certificate, you will have a good job and great positions in the society. And with that job you can make your dream came true. This is made your life full of happiness.
In conclusion, the hard times will help people to look for the happiness. Happiness is not free. You have to work hard and do what you should to do to get the comfortable feeling of the happiness. And every thing happen in life that happen with reasons and maybe that reasons make you a happy person.
