Happiness is that elusive thing we all desire. We spend a lot of time and energy looking for it – in a job, in a partner, in a new house, a new neighborhood, a new group of friends. But then, after a few weeks of bliss, our happiness fades. And we search again.
It often remains out of reach.
Why is it so difficult? What are we missing? I spent a lot of time and energy soul-searching to understand what happiness means. It became a practice rather than a destination.
I found some clarity during a particularly difficult time at my job. (As Oprah calls it, the “aha” moment.)
