Is Happiness a Holy Grail?

Published on

We often complicate things in our lives withpout meaning to. To help simplify one bit of it, here’s my happiness recipe

Trying to be happy doesn’t work. Despite a multitude of books on the subject, achieving happiness is like the Holy Grail of personal development.

Our own attempts at it don’t work either, the more we try to be happy the more it eludes us. Striving and comparing rarely gets us nearer to the goal (or should that be grail)

What about if happiness was not about aiming for something?

How about if, in order to be happy, you simply need to remove what’s making you unhappy?

Which brings me to my two-step happiness recipe for a better life:

  1. Find out what’s bugging you.
  2. Do something about it.
