Happiness is a state of mind. Specifically, it is a state of “well-being and contentment.”

This is the reason some people say, “Don’t pursue happiness, seek joy. Happiness is fickle and fading, joy remains forever.”

But this short-term definition of happiness is not how everyone understands the word. Some define it to mean long-term satisfaction.

The long-term feeling of life satisfaction is most experienced when we embrace the emotion of joy in the here and now.
