Interview – Days of Happiness Series

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?

    • I definitely agree that I don’t need a ton of stuff to be happy. Friends and family are basically what I need. Although traveling with them is super fun as well 🙂

  1. Great interview! Agree with Mrs. Picky Pincher that it is awesome to see the message of the art of happiness spreading.

    I find I am happiest when I start the day with a conscious decision to be happy. Just saying internally “today is going to be a great day” makes me approach even rude people or frustrating situations with more patience instead of letting impact my mood.

  2. I do think happiness is a state of mind. For me personally I find that I’m happiest when I recognize and acknowledge how fortunate I am. Gratitude can make a person happier.

  3. Attitude goes a really long ways in anything. It’s why really good teams lose against really bad teams during those seasons when the coach is hoping he doesn’t get fired before the bus leaves the stadium & he needs to find his own way back.

    Being positive is a blessing. It amazes me how some people who have been through so many troubles & challenges (financially or personal) & still be very optimistic.

    • It’s definitely something I think about from time to time. Why are rich people some of the most miserable people while poor people in developing nations the happiest. Really gets me thinking at times 🙂

  4. I think deep down everyone wants to be happy. It’s just that what makes people happy is different for everyone. Perhaps some people are “happy” but being gloomy all the time! Forcing them to be “optimistic” might make them even more miserable!

    Personally, I find joy in working on my business and surfing. My life is pretty simple but also quite exhilarating.

    • Thanks for sharing Troy!!! Surfing and working on your own business sounds amazing. I definitely wouldn’t mind having those two things as the backbone of my happiness 🙂
