Are you happy?
A pretty simple question and yet when I was asked it today by a friend I found myself wondering what it even means.
We had been catching up and I had apologized for being busy with my business lately. She asked if perhaps I needed to slow down and if I was was happy or not. The question caught me a bit off guard at first, but then I immediately thought to myself “Yes, I am unbelievably happy!”. Busy, sure. Tired, most of the time. A lot on my mind, often. But happy? Everyday.
It made me realize that much of us have associated certain things with leading to unhappiness.
