I had the opportunity to participate in the Days of Happiness interview series with Wes at The Pursuit Of Happiness. This series includes “a collection of content hopefully designed to help each and everyone one of us fulfill our own pursuit of Happiness.” In honor on the International Day of Happiness on March 20th, Wes has spent the entire month of March highlighting happiness.
Below I have included a teaser, but I encourage you to head on over and read the whole interview.
Happiness means different things to different people, what does Happiness mean to you?
Happiness to me is pretty simple. It is a mindset that dictates that you will not be swayed by what is thrown at you. Instead, it seeks to find the good and positive in any situation, knowing that even hard stuff can result in good. Happiness is rooted in a source greater than yourself, where you feel comfort and security knowing that you are loved and cared for completely.
Do you believe happiness is an emotion or more of a state of mind?
I believe happiness is a state of mind. Even in difficult times, I can still find happiness if I transcend the current situation and remember who I am and the hope that I have. I can look at situations with a different perspective and not get bogged down by the difficulty at hand.
Do you consider being happy important to you? Why?
