The pursuit of happiness may well be the most stubborn of all human clichés. Everybody, throughout human history, has been searching for it, selling it, finding it, and losing it.
Happiness is what keeps us humans going. What helps us forget the hardships. It distracts us from the tragedy and finiteness of life. Happiness is like the drug that keeps us alive.
Happiness changes and always depends on what situation you are in. If you are oppressed, then freedom is your biggest happiness. If you are ill, health is. If you are hungry, then food is. If you are lonely, then someone special entering your life will bring you the biggest joy.
Happiness is such a big word but is triggered by so many little things. Warm sunrays on your skin. The sound of the sea. The silence during a forest walk. A bouquet of lovely smelling spring flowers. Returning to a cozy home after a long day at work.
Once in a while we need to ask ourselves that question: Are you happy? And mostly we ask ourselves this in the moments when we are not. Maybe happiness is like our compass in life. Once in a while we need to adjust it in order to find our direction again.
