The perfect happiness is express what you feel in the right moment and get the answer that you expect not because you, but because you find the way to be naturally connected in the present for it. Perfect happiness plays an instrument and by surprise combine nice tone together and hear it. Perfect happiness takes your pen and draw upon a surface and express a new concept. The perfect happiness is stable emotions, have a nice place where to live and good family/friends who can share with you special and value moments.
