In December – while I was busy getting through our very first Christmas season at The Happy Chocolatier – Andy Smith posted an article “Chasing Happiness: You’re Doing It Wrong” on Huffington Post. I just had time to read it. His thesis is that many people’s understanding of happiness is misaligned with what really drives happiness. Thus, many look in the wrong places for happiness. Or, as I have found many think happiness is a state of being when in reality it is all about the journey. And, importantly, it’s about the people we encounter on the journey and how we treat them. I quite agree with one of his points that we can derive great happiness by helping others. Definitely an article worth reading.
