Have we been so blinded by bling that we can not find happiness and contentment even if it is staring us in the eye?
- What makes you happy and content?
- Do you think it is within your grasp or out of reach?
These questions have occupied human beings for ages, and in every age every person on earth has had different, sometimes complicated answers.
But the answers may be very simple, universal, and timeless.
There is ample evidence in cognitive research that suggest some common human virtues are associated with happiness and contentment. For anybody to achieve higher levels of happiness and contentment, giving these virtues attention may be the answer.
Some seek happiness and contentment by striving for great wealth, notable popularity, and grand collections of toys, gadgets, and goodies. Only to find happiness and contentment remaining an elusive fiction.
Others have found happiness and contentment in simpler truths. Often living exemplary lives and leaving lasting impressions beyond death that act as guiding lights along life’s path.
My goal as a writer is to seek out and bring light to the simpler truths and provide a realistic look at finding happiness and contentment.
With my own journey as the map, I mark with words the ways I have found personal happiness.
And at each way-point, I hope to capture the simple truths there so others can choose their own ways to follow.
