Happiness & Meaning
Do you want to know what will bring you happiness? Are you interested in helping others? Do you want to live a life of meaning? Then you have to ask yourself, “What will bring you happiness?” The answer to this question will surprise you. You have the power to decide the direction of your life. After all, you are the only person who will be responsible for your happiness. Here are some tips for finding your genuine sense of happiness.
Activities that makes you happy
First, try to find what makes you happy. What is the most fulfilling activity for you? Is it your work? Is it your hobbies? What is your spirituality? What are your ideal activities? Do you spend your days reading or listening to music? These activities will keep you mentally and emotionally balanced. If you have a meaningful hobby, you’ll likely have a sense of satisfaction from your time. If you feel you’re getting bored, you might be doing it for the wrong reasons.
Purpose in life as a source of joy
Purpose: What makes you happy is something that brings you meaning. It is a powerful emotion that you can’t easily get from your surroundings. It is important to identify what makes you happy. If you want to find meaning in life, you need to be in a place where you can give and receive happiness. It’s important to understand that happiness is an ongoing process that takes time and effort.
Benefits of doing what you love
Being happy is a positive feeling that comes from doing what you love.
- You’ll have more energy and you’ll be happier overall.

The right activities are essential to your happiness. Doing something you love is an excellent way to stay happy. You can choose to engage in activities that make you happy while still being pleasurable. It is important to remember that you can cultivate a sense of happiness. But you must do it carefully. You must choose activities that make you happy. Then you’ll be surrounded by people who make you happy.
Sense of happiness & meaning
Having a sense of meaning and happiness is essential. It helps to be happy. It’s important to live life to the fullest and to be happy. Your life should be full of meaning and purpose. This is a good way to make yourself happy. The more you give, the more happiness you’ll experience. You’ll feel more satisfied and fulfilled. If you’re not sure what this means to you, look for people who have a strong sense of meaning.
Are you willing to make the change?
Now that we’ve talked about happiness and meaning making, and what all of that can teach us, the time is now to ask yourself, what change would make my life more happy and meaningful? In my life, I’ve asked this question regularly to keep me on my true and authentic path. And a lot of this has come from a knowledge of self. Through my youth, I experimented. And I wanted to learn enough so that I could figure out my career and a path that satisfied me. Therefore, I pursued many careers simultaneously.
Complexities within your inner self
And of course, it’s a bit confusing at a cocktail party. When someone comes up to me and says, What do you do? Well, I’m a professor, I’m a clown. I’m a motivational speaker. I’m a coach, I run a girls empowerment club. I’m an artist in the schools and I’m an entrepreneur.
But these conscious choices are such a huge part of what makes my life incredibly meaningful.
At 13, I joined a professional mind company, this was a way to bring meaning into my life, at 18, the conscious choice to go to college and study recreational therapy, over being say a doctor or a lawyer, which would have made my parents happier, was deeply satisfying, a lifelong love of the career, deciding not to be parents afforded my husband and I the opportunity to be part of the metaphorical village, and intentionally contribute to the lives of hundreds of children, rather than just our own children, taking classes to become a volunteer grief counsellor helped me because I was so anxious around illness and death.
And I wanted to change that. The conscious choice to pioneer and lead a study abroad program allowed my husband and me to fulfil our dream of living part time in Paris, and to have a project to do together.
The most important decisions in my life
For most of my adult life, I thought I was going to be running this venture backed Silicon Valley startup company with hundreds of employees, or be the CEO of a publicly traded company. And yet my decision to move to another country and to build a small business that focuses on helping others and to work, you know, only four days a week, those have been some of the most important and meaningful decisions in my life.
They’ve given me such an incredible sense of meaning, purpose and happiness, which I can honestly say far exceed anything that I experienced when I was on that other path.
But these are just our personal examples. I’ve shared them to give you some ideas of the power of making a choice, reframing, and lifestyle design. Truthfully, I have no way of knowing if these are things that would bring you happiness or meaning.
Focus on the positives. Observe and appreciate your life. It’s important to remember that happiness is the sum of small habits.~Obaid
Yours may be similar to mine, or they may be completely different. So right now, I want you to think, what do you really want? What would bring you a little bit more happiness? And meaning? Are you willing to set a goal and go for it?
When you first set out, you might not know the answers to these questions, but not to worry. As we move through the line and start developing more understanding about ourselves, our passions, our missions, and our goals. It will all become clear. For now, however, I want you to start thinking, to start framing your mindset in this fashion.
Ask yourself what it is that will bring you happiness and meaning. Our minds are incredible at pattern recognition and at finding that needle in the haystack. And so by tuning your mind to focus on opportunities for happiness, meaning and joy right now, you’ll be even more effective at doing so and it recognizing those things when the time comes to discover your mission.
When you feel content and happy, you’ll be grateful for the things that you have. Being grateful for the little things in life is the best way to feel good about yourself and the world. A gratitude attitude will help you feel happier and more fulfilled. Once you can appreciate the little things that make life meaningful, you’ll be happier, too. This is a way to live a full life.
