“One of the secrets of a happy life is continuous small treats.” Iris Murdoch

  • Falling asleep to the sound of rain
  • Warm fresh smelling clothes from the dryer
  • Getting lost in a good book
  • The transition from summer to fall
  • A toasty cup of cocoa

Happiness is life’s most cherished goal. In every country and in every culture, when people are asked, “What do you want?” the most popular answer is “happiness.” When parents are asked, “What do you most want for your children?” the answer is “happiness.” Happiness is the goal that makes other life goals such as success, prosperity and relationships…feel meaningful and enjoyable. fun

If you know happiness is inside you, then happiness becomes a compass, a teacher and an enabler that helps you to live your best life. A good starting point is to reflect on the question “When am I at my happiest?” People who follow their joy discover a depth of talent and creativity that inspires us all. Then make a list of everything in your life that costs no money and is totally priceless, like laughter, friendship, meditation, air, kindness and the stars at night. A lot of happiness is overlooked because it doesn’t cost anything. If you think money will buy you happiness, you will go shopping for the rest of your life and never be completely satisfied. Money can’t buy you happiness, because happiness is not an “it.”
