Happy IconHappiness. I’ve been reflecting on happiness for the last week or so and am not sure what to make of it. There’s a sense that happiness should mean the absence of struggle or problems in life. But how can this be when we’re always bumping into or in the throes of struggle, suffering, pain, and the like? Is it really possible to be happy–not that giddy happiness, but more of a deep glow of happiness? If so, where does that happiness “fit” within the contrarieties of life?

What are your thoughts? If you are not sure, do a google search on happiness quotes and find one that captures what you might be thinking on this.
