Endorphins dancing in your body, desiring your lips to smile. Filled with joyful sparks, ready to explode. You are happy.

We have all experienced happiness, but have we ever wondered what true happiness is? So, what is happiness? A question that everybody should answer individually. There is no right, there is no wrong.

For a long time, I believed that I couldn’t be happy at all. I expected unrealistic goals from myself to achieve full- happiness, like having no worries or stop being a perfectionist. One day I realized that being the clichĂ© happy all the time is almost impossible. We stuck in unrealistic ideals, like being nonstop happy without realizing that life is made out of happy and sad emotions. You literally can’t be happy all the time. Okay, I can’t, maybe you can. I am a perfectionist and a master of self criticism. I never have the feeling that I’ve reached the top of anything, I just push myself more up high even when it seems to be impossible.

In fact, I can’t live without my self- criticism. If I would stop it one day, I would stop changing and turning myself around. For me, success is made out of the ability to change and to live with the spirit of today. To move forward, not to look back.

So, if I would fulfil this unrealistic ideal of being a nonstop bundle of joy, I would probably not move forward because I would like my state of mind. With this satisfaction, I won’t have the ability to change.

Long story short, for me happiness is to love yourself and living your life to the fullest. That is a different definition for everyone, but this is mine.

When endorphins seem to explode in your body, you can be sure that you’ve reached your own kind of happiness.
