Just about everyone wants to be happy. We’re wished ‘Happy Birthday’, ‘Happy Easter’, ‘Happy Christmas’, ‘Happy Anniversary’, and ‘Happy’ just about anything else! But, just what is this universally acknowledge aim, happiness?
Clearly, it’s a feeling; an all-pervading emotion brought about when things go right. Is happiness most profound when, despite the odds, events turn out well?
On another level, people often say they’re happy when they stand back from their lives, examine it, and reach an agreeable conclusion. Although probably less acute than that experienced when, out of the blue, they win the lottery, a promotion, or better still, a heart, it still is a wonderful feeling.
