Happiness is appreciating the small things that we do, we get, we give in our day to day life which brings smile in someones face. Yes happiness is more about giving and spreading rather than taking.
We are all different minds in this world so there cannot be a standard definition of happiness, because different minds have different meaning for there Happiness. For some minds materialistic things give happiness, for some it may be spiritual things, and so on.
But what matter here is how we are appreciating the happiness we got. Sometimes we are so busy complaining about the problems in our lifes, that we forget to appreciate the blessings God gave us. Sometime the small thing, small incidents give us a lot of happiness.
