Happiness – At least 40% is up to YOU!

1 Comment

If you’re happy and you know it . . .

How do you know if you’re happy? What makes you happy?  For most people money matters, but it doesn’t make them happy.  People need their basic needs met and want not to worry about survival.  But the opposite of worry is not happy.  What makes people happy is relationships, connections, other people.  That isn’t to say the source of happiness is other people.  We choose who is in our life and we decide who deeply we connect to those people.  We also choose to be givers, takers, or be in relationships that are give or take.

I’ve been posting a lot of video links lately, but this one I’m really excited to share.  It’s a documentary that explains the emotion from perspectives all over the world.  The path to happiness may have cultural variations, but the destination is universal.  Check it out and let me know what you think!
