We all want to feel liked, loved, happy. And we should. The US Constitution guarantees the right to pursue happiness, yet most of us think the key to bliss is somewhere outside of ourselves where we’re richer, prettier, thinner, different. Advertisers know this and aim all manner of products, movies and even food packaging at us, implying that we can have happiness by trying the latest quick fix. Even reality shows taunt us with the possibility of overnight fame and fortune – happiness and bliss implied in the story-line. The Merriam-Webster Dictionary defines bliss as a state of complete happiness – even using words like “paradise” in the definition.
Sounds like quite a destination. So how can you find it?
