On Being Happy: Guest Post

PROBLEM #16: Can Happiness Ever be Attained?happiness

Have you ever wondered, “Why does everyone around me seem happy all the time, and I’m not? Is there something wrong with me? I must have a PROBLEM.”

SOLUTION: The older we get, the more we realize how false this is. Everyone is not actually happy all the time – even though it may seem so from the outside. We are all, to some extent, working towards our own idea of happiness. That’s exactly what this post is all about.

Recently, I was able to take part in a series of interviews over on “The Pursuit of Happiness” blog.

Check out my interview Q&A here: http://www.thepursuitofhappiness.me/days-of-happiness-day-thirteen/

About The Pursuit of Happiness Blog

Wes was kind enough to let me share a little about him, and the impetus behind his blog.

Hey there! My name is Wes, creator of thePursuitofHappiness.me.  I won’t bore you with the full details of the inspiration for the site.  To share a little bit though; growing up in America, I had always been taught about this nation’s founding documents and I heard all the time about the Declaration of Independence and the phrase “Life, Liberty, and the pursuit of Happiness” but frankly, did not appreciate it until I was in my late twenties. 

I mean seriously, our founding fathers named the Pursuit of Happiness as an unalienable right for all in the Declaration of Independence, but how many people do you know that are truly happy?  If your experiences are anywhere near similar to mine, not very many.  What an incredible opportunity we are squandering!

 So this is what thepursuitofhappiness.me is about really, a collection of content hopefully designed to help each and everyone one of us fulfill our own pursuit of Happiness. This is done in an increasing number of formats as we continue to expand our internet footprint.  For the ENTIRE month of March, we are celebrating the Days of Happiness (inspired by the International Day of Happiness on March 20th).   I hope to see you around social and on the site – don’t be afraid to leave a comment!

 Thank you for your time, after all – it is the most valuable thing we have.

  1. Chris, thanks for the great interview and thought provoking responses! I love how you almost synonymize happiness with contentment. I agree that the two are very intertwined.

    Thanks again for the great read!

    • I enjoyed it. I think it’s great to be able to write about different things, and from a little bit different perspective too. Thanks for the opportunity.
