My Definition of Felicity



What is the definition of felicity according to www.merriam-webster.com/dictionary/felicity?

fe·lic·i·ty

noun \fi-ˈli-sə-tē\
plural fe·lic·i·ties

1 a : the quality or state of being happy; especially : great happiness b : an instance of happiness 
 
2 : something that causes happiness

Synonyms: beatitude, blessedness, bliss, blissfulness, happiness, gladness, joy, warm fuzzies

I personally find felicity by creating blissful experiences through adventure, imagination and healthy living. I am in my “happy place” while traveling, in my craft room, in the kitchen and at the gym. I have found over the past several years that creating life experiences by doing what gives me joy is my key to living a fulfilled life.

To some, road tripping it 19 hours to Maine or trying a new hole-in-the-wall restaurant may not be your idea of a good time. To others, sweating it out on the treadmill or creating a one-of-a-kind DIY masterpiece doesn’t seem appealing. But to me, it’s LIVING. I treat each day as a potential to learn, grow or challenge myself physically, mentally or creatively.

I plan to share my felicities with you and hope to encourage you to try something new, challenge your mind and body or simply live for what makes YOU happy. I encourage you to share your experiences with me as well – I’m always up for branching out!
