What is happiness? What causes it? How do you hold onto it? What makes it go away?
These questions have led to many philosophical debates over thousands of years. The philosophers of Greece were famous for their quest to define the pillars of “the good life.” Faith-based movements have painstakingly crafted dogmas and prescribed behaviors in pursuit of ultimate peace and joy. Academic studies have been concentrated on finding the answer to “the optimal life experience.”
Governments have professed to craft policies to promote the overall well-being of their citizens. Every day, ordinary dinner table discussions are, at heart, a dialogue in search of a happy life.
Happiness is Unique to You
What makes one person happy may make another miserable. There is no one key to happiness for everyone. Instead, the answers lie within you.
