Are you Happy?

When I was growing up, I was told to get good grades and a good job. Was/ is that happiness?

Forty years later, my father told me that it was important for me to find out what makes me happy. I responded by reminding him that he told me I was supposed to make him happy.

”I didn’t know better,” he said. He was 85 years old.

We all know better. We know to tell ourselves, our children and our families that it’s important to find happiness. And that will mean something different to each person, of course, because there isn’t just one road to happiness. But it’s a good thing to learn.

And it is never too late to learn.
