We all honor our own innate ideals of happiness. Our conception of “the good life.” Composing and recomposing our lives around this archetype of euphoria.
But that’s the thing.
Our idea of happiness is only ours. It’s undoubtedly incongruent from the happiness someone on the opposite side of the earth holds. Neither is it the same happiness as those in our lives. Our family, our friends, they all hold their personal paradigms of pleasure.
Let us focus on what makes us happy. Let us allow others to do what makes them happy, too. All in an effort to empower peace without prejudice.
What makes you happy? What are your pillars of happiness? Have you recognized your ideal happiness differs from those around you?
