The Wisdomous - Don’t be the sage on the stage; be the guide on the side.
How have you been?
Lately, I have a few thoughts about happiness.
Everyone feels like they know what “happiness” means, but it’s tough for multiple people to agree on a definition. Happiness isn’t something that we can show each other and measure with a ruler – it’s an experience. All we can do is describe it in relation to other things, or tell which things make us happy and hope other people can analogize to their own lives. We all more or less understand what others mean by happiness , but we’re still dealing with a vague concept.
How do you define happiness?
