Happiness is...

"Enjoy every experience." Perhaps easier said than done, right? After all, some experiences feel instantly positive: happy, joyful, exciting, hopeful. Others tempt us to assign them negative qualities: sad, painful, anxiety-inducing. All these emotions, however fleeting or enduring, are real and valid. To help us manage them with contentment of the soul, it is best to notice them as an observer. It is the difference between watching leaves float down a river, and diving into the current. When we observe, but are not absorbed by an experience, we can appreciate its movement, the ripples in the water, and also the passage of time, which inevitably renews the rushing water itself.
