This Week’s Eganism is on Happiness

Now available on Salem Radio Network (SRN) Nationwide

Happiness is the most important thing to enjoy. It occurs when you choose to appreciate the exact moment you are in.

In America we have the right to life, liberty, and the pursuit of happiness.

Sad people refuse to be happy and instead decide to perpetually reside in their realm of misfortune and nothing more.

Happy people acknowledge life’s misfortunes and then decide to still be happy.

Happiness is beyond pleasure and fun moments. It’s a fundamental drive to achieve perspective and fulfillment.

It is not simply blocking the sources of displeasure, because that will never end.

There is no consensus on a single definition. Perhaps it is because happiness is a subjective and emotional state of mind, and everyone has a different mind.

At a minimum you have to know it is an option, laugh at your stupid self; be proactive more than reactive.

Final Point:  Happiness is one of the few gifts that you can volunteer to give to yourself.


Remember, “The road to success is always under construction.”
