Are you happy? Can you think back to your childhood? Remember how carefree and simple life was when you were a little kid? What happened?
Happiness what is it? Is it a feeling? Is it a state of mind? Is it a degree of satisfaction? I think it’s all three. Happiness is certainly a feeling of satisfaction, peace and excitement as well. Happiness is a state of positivity and optimism. Notice how when you are happy and little annoying stressful things come up you just don’t really care?
I think the pursuit of happiness is a worthy pursuit. Ultimately everyone’s goals in life have to do with being happier. I don’t care of you want to be a millionaire, a monk, travel the world or find the cure for cancer, it’s all about happiness.
Now that might sound selfish, some might say but I want to help others. Well why? Because helping others gives one a feeling of satisfaction and happiness. So wanting to be happy isn’t selfish, it’s natural.
