What to Be Happy Means

What is happiness? I think it’s not easy to answerthis question. Each of us hashis/her own idea of what it is. For example, if we look for this word in a dictionary, we may read: "filling or expressing pleasure, contentment". This definition doesn't help us to see the problem. Another example "You are happy when youare understood".

In Great Britain a market research organization did a

survey to find out who are the happiest people.It showed that the happiest person in Britain today isa professional married man between the ages of 35 and 54He lives in the south of England but not in London, lieowns a comfortable, detached house and has two children. He has a steady job in an office in London. After a hard day at work, he relaxes in front of the television or watches a video. He spends on average £120 per week.

His wife is happy, too, but not quite as happy. She runs the home and has a job, but she doesn't earn as much as her husband.

WONDERFUL WORLD

 


I see trees of green

Red roses too

I see them bloom for me and you

And I think to myself

What a wonderful world.

I see skies of blue

And clouds of white,

The beautiful day

And the beautiful night,

And I think to myself,

What a beautiful world.

The colours of the rainbow

So pretty in the sky

Are also on faces

Of the people going by.

I see friends shaking hands

Saying How do you do?

They’re really saying

I love you.

I hear babies cry.

I watch them grow.

They learn much more

Than they ever know

And I think to myself

What a wonderful world.

Yes, I think to myself

What a wonderful world.
