What Is True Happiness?

“True happiness is to enjoy the present, without anxious dependence upon the future, not to amuse ourselves with either hopes or fears but to rest satisfied with what we have, which is sufficient, for he that is so wants nothing. The greatest blessings of mankind are within us and within our reach. A wise man is content with his lot, whatever it may be, without wishing for what he has not.” ― Lucius Annaeus Seneca

Are you happy? If you are, how happy are you?

True happiness refers to the measurement of two kinds of happiness, namely experienced happiness and remembered happiness.

True Happiness

Experienced happiness pertains to those moments of relief, bliss, laughter, or joy that you have experienced within a day. Imagine your friend asking you randomly during lunch time about what you are doing and how happy you actually are at that very moment. That is experienced happiness, the kind of happiness that comes from the things that you do for a particular period of time.

On the other hand, remembered happiness refers to how you think about yourself in general. This is how you will answer that million dollar question “Are you happy with your life?”
This is how you remember those years you had in high school, the vacations that you went to, the holidays you have spent with your whole family, the early days of childhood with other kids, your history of jobs, or even your divorce. Remembered happiness is pretty much like the bigger picture or perspective on your state of happiness.
It is not surprising that experienced happiness and remembered happiness do not match all the time. For instance, millionaires in general have higher rate for their remembered selves compared to those people who only earn $50,000 each year.
However, a millionaire might have more responsibilities in life. He may experience more pressure in his work, with a larger house to run and a spouse who is more demanding.
It only goes to say that even if they are earning millions, these people might have lesser moments of spontaneous happiness during their day to day lives, and living their lives less happily.

Meanwhile, an ordinary employee who considers himself as less happy since he lacks the kind of luxury that he has been dreaming of might, in reality, experience great bliss and pleasure with their jobs, with their family or with their hobbies, thus, they tend to have more blissful moments in their day.
Experienced and remembered happiness might be entirely different things but once you have happy moments in your past and your present, then, you can say that you have reached the so-called true happiness.

Romantic letters have been instrumental in many love connections made both in past and present times. Learning the art of writing a romantic love letter will definitely make a good impression on the intended party who will be impressed enough to be at the very least interested in making a response.

Expression Through Writing

A romantic love letter is designed to make the other party feel special and honored. The following are some of the points that should be included when considering the format and content of a romantic love letter:

  1. Writing from the heart and being as authentic as possible will help in the design of the letter’s content. Choosing words carefully that are intended to touch the very heart of the intended recipient will also contribute to the letter being special and heartfelt.
  2. Mentioning an action or a word that has inspired the individual’s initial reaction to writing the letter should be expressed. This will show the recipient that the individual has been giving the action or the word some thought.
  3. Thanking the intended recipient for the inspiration that they seem to ignite in the author of the love letter is also another angle to include in the writing of the love letter. Thanking the intended for the positive feelings surfacing and the sudden or heightened positive vibes that have caused changes should also be included.
  4. Explaining the reason the recipient matters to the author of the love letter and how life has changed for the better simply with the presence of the recipient in his or her life even if it is through an online connection will help to further express the impact made and felt.

How To Express Love Despite Your Absence

There are many ways to express love, but when it is done through the absence of one party the expression takes on an even more powerful meaning. Most people wrongly assume that when the person is apart from a loved one, his or her mind rarely focuses on the other party. However in most cases this is untrue.

There are several different ways an individual can express love despite the existence of the element of absence. The following are some of the ways that have been proven to be very effective:

  1. Sending emails and love notes online is one of the more popular ways that most people indulge in today. This is made easy through the availability of the internet. Therefore distance is no longer an issue and neither is it a viable excuse to not practice this simple form of communication.
  2. Sending flowers is another popular way to display love despite the element of absence. Some places actually have the standing order facility for clients who would want such an arrangement to keep them from getting into trouble when love is not expressed in their absence.
  3. Having gifts ordered online and delivered is also another convenient way of expressing love, even in absence. There is a vast array of things that can be purchased easily and with the least amount of hassle possible, thus making it a viable option to choose from.
  4. Taking the trouble to enlist the help of family and friends to help pass messages that express love whenever possible is also encouraged, as these people collectively will be able to keep in mind whatever is needed to be done in the absence of the individual who enlisted their help. This makes the intended recipient feel loved and remembered.
