25 Happiness Quotes For When You Need A Little Boost

Embrace your happiness.

What is happiness? Well, the definition of happiness is the state of being happy.

For me, the definition of happiness is the feeling of joy and contentment in my life—all those little things throughout the day that make me smile. And the sweet memories that pop into my mind now and then.

Happiness is living your life to the fullest extent. Counting your blessings and feeling gratitude.

Sit down and make a list of all the things big and small that make you happy. I think you may be surprised at how long your list may end up being. Sometimes we don't take the time to think about how much happiness is truly in our lives.
