NOSTALGIA VS HAPPINESS

“nos·tal·gia- a sentimental longing or wistful affection for the past, typically for a period or place with happy personal associations”

“hap·pi·ness- state of being happy, fulfilled, lighthearted”

When we are living in the moment and you catch yourself with that all loving, full, warm feeling in your chest is that nostalgia or happiness in the moment?

Once we live these we always remember them as a great memory that we tell our friends about afterwards.

My question is, in that moment am i genuinely happy or just feeling the nostalgia from the association of this moment with a feeling from my past?
