Happiness is a consciousness to be satisfied and contented in whatever situation you find yourself, or at least that’s how I’d like to define it at this time. We all derive joy through different means. A lot of people would argue emphatically that money or pay raise is a better short cut to happiness. Well, just like beauty is in the eye of the beholder, everyone is entitled to their own opinion.
