Hi! My inquiry question is : What does it take to be happy?
Last year, I got the amazing opportunity to travel to Thailand and Hong Kong. I visited many different places there, and saw a wide variety of lifestyles. I was particularly interested in the lifestyle of the people living on a small island that I visited. Their lives were very simple, and they were without many of the luxuries that we are accustomed to here in Canada. But they were happy, happier than many people I’ve met here. Which made me think, what does it really take to be happy? Is it just a state of mind? Are there certain things you need in your life in order to be happy?
I’ve been thinking about that a lot lately, especially since I’m at that age where it’s time for me to start planning my future. There’s so many paths that I could take, and they each lead somewhere different. I wonder if society’s idea of a successful life will bring me happiness, or if I would find happiness in something different. Because of this, I figured this is the perfect question for me! Not only will it help me out, I hope that I’ll be able to inform others that might be in the same position as me.
Please feel free to leave me any comments or ideas, I love to read them!
