    Happiness is enjoying life as it is with its imperfections and realising that worrying takes so much from you. Happiness is Living in the moment because once that moment passes you can never ever get it back. Happiness is a precious gift that you give yourself Happiness is a choice. 🙂 True happiness rubs off on those around you because how can you make others happy if you are not genuinely happy. I would share this price with my sister @Kei2Moticoe because of our obsession with Lancome . I'm an unemployed graduate and my sister has been so supportive of me, emotionally and financially and she does all this while going through her own personal things. It would be awesome to spoil her with this. #WeLoveLancome #My Lancome

    Happiness to me means being able to share love because it is like love ( love is not love until you give it away) fully experienced from a reflection point of view. It brings me peace within my soul when I cause someone else happy or joyful because I believe it is who I was born to be. I love what Maya Angelou once said " Try to be a rainbow in someone's cloud" to me that is true happiness. I would share my Lancome La Vie with Mama "Mother" that helps out at the office as a cleaner. My name is Nehanda Dwane, email address: nehanda.dwane@yahoo.com. Thank you

    Happiness to me means being able to practice self-love, self-care and self-acceptance in a way that adds value not only to myself but to those around me. It is about making life choices that add to this happiness. Happiness also means being able to celebrate life in all its ups and down, knowing that everything is temporary so its best to enjoy it, and enjoy it to the full.

    I would love to share this gift with my sister who has brought with her much happiness into my life not only as a sister but as my first experience of what a best friend is.
    Sometimes all it takes is to add a drop happiness to life and stir 🙂

    Happiness is appreciating the good more than the bad. Living even when things seem bad.

    Share it because it may just save a life.

    what happiness means to me, to be honest I really didn't know what happens was, I used to think happiness goes hand in hand with how beautiful you look and how much money your have in bank account sadly I was wrong. but not until I met the love of my life, who showed that happiness has nothing to do with that. To me happiness means being comfortable and confident with who you are in most natural foam, being able to just chill and just enjoy being you. or just enjoying freshly baked cookies with family and knowing that your best is enough.

    I would like to share my happiness with my aunt who gives selflessly, and forgets about her own happiness and needs. and she has being going through a tough time, so she can be reminded of how pretty she is and that is my world and everything in it.

    so one of the things that makes me happy is when everyone close to me is happy as well, it balances out the happiness scale. it really is very hard to fully be happy when someone close to you is sad hence you have to show them that their blessings outweigh the bad patch they are going through and that is why happiness is best shared. imagine screaming "because I'm happy" and your friend/family is next to you in tears. My happy scale is balanced when all close to me are happy. I will definitely share this delicious prize with my BFF Litha Vimbi because she just lost her father, this gift will not bring him back or make it better but it will put a smile on her face and maybe it will be the first baby step to the healing journey. from Joan Mashava email: joan.mashava@unilever.com

    Why share happiness… Well- why not. Happiness is the fruit of life, the thing that keeps us all going and sharing it is the best gift you can give anyone. You bring joy to others, whether it's joking with your friends, sharing a joke or smiling at a stranger. We never know who needs that smile most, it may just be that one smile at a stranger that makes someone's day. The thing in life that makes me happiest is my son, and the funny stories I can share- from the mouth of babes. You don't want to look back on your life and be disappointed because you never had fun- so make each day an adventure. Laugh a little.

    I would share this gift with my sister. She spreads happiness where ever she goes, her smile/laugh is contagious, she can have a conversation with anyone and she is the best at cheering anyone up.

    Funny I woke up thinking about this today and looked at pictures in moments where I was truly happy. Like when my sister Khauhelo turned 5 last year and I remembered a time when we weren't sure if she would make it. So each one of her birthdays is cause to celebrate and celebrate and celebrate. She is the light of our lives. Her life has been a comfort to us during the some of our lowest points as a family and a blessing equal to no other. So happiness to me, today, is having my prayers answered by way of unconditional love and light in the way that I have experienced it since my sister's birth.

    I would gift my mother with the other bottle. She carried my sister and has been to hell and back because of my sister's weak immune system when my sis was a baby. She deserves every beautiful thing in the world for her love, courage, strength and sense of humour. She perhaps felt it the most of all of us but never got consumed by it. I don't know how but I am amazed by it still. And she continues to rise above every obstacle Aisha- everyday. That's where I draw my strength when I'm at my wits' end. I am blessed beyond what I could have ever imagined to have HER as a mother.
