I think you have to have been loved,
or have self love to be happy.
I don't see happiness as a goal,
I think it's a state of mind.
There is a difference with saying you want to find happiness,
as opposed to saying I am happy,
but want to share it with someone.
I don't think you can go out and try to find happiness.
It isn't something that is concrete, but abstract.
Although happiness can be achieved,
when something makes you feel good.
It is a feeling of contentment,
and being at peace with oneself.
It is like being at rest for the soul.
Taking that pause in life,
having an ah ha moment for your spirit.
Feeling content with the emptiness that makes you feel so full,
And being happy in spite of it!
Pharrell Williams - Happy (Despicable Me 2- Lyric Video)
