What is it that makes us happy We're told that money that doesn't buy it, or success, or even love. Can happiness be created, or must it be discovered Does the path to a happy life require certain ingredients self-discovery, confidence, a loving group of family and friends, spiritual guidance, the opportunity to fulfill one's dreams or can anyone be truly happy?
We spend our entire lives on the pursuit of this elusive state, which we so often think we recognize in others, and which we constantly struggle to find for ourselves. Thousands of years of philosophy, psychology, and sociology have studied what it means to be happy, but what if it could be a whole lot simpler than that?
