Aristotle was under the impression that we’re all seeking happiness. I would tend to agree.
Happiness not in the sense of getting what I want or having pleasant feelings and avoiding unpleasant feelings, but more like a general sense of wellbeing and satisfaction with this life.
Happiness, in this sense, is available to just about all of us just about all the time.
It’s like the sky. It’s always up there. But that doesn’t mean we always see it.
Close your eyes, and you’ll miss it.
Walk around with your head down, and you’ll miss it.
Stay inside, and you’ll miss it.
If you want to see it, you might need to exert some effort, but chances are you can make it happen.
