What is it?

Yesterday I blogged about happiness sort of… I blogged about me being happy that I finished an ethics course ( I am not a fan of studying ethics at all so getting out of this course alive was an accomplishment).  I also blogged about Aristotle’s view on happiness ( it is a kind of weird one but it is one view) and I blogged about attaining happiness.

So what is happiness? That is the million dollar question isn’t it? What would make me happy or you or him or her? It is subjective and changes on the circumstances doesn’t it? I mean today I will be happy when it is time to go home because I enjoy home more than work and home makes me happy, work ehh not usually oh do you see what just happened? That is an epiphany!

Epiphany is the manifestation of a striking experience or the truth, many religious scholars call the appearance of Christ and epiphany. My epiphany was not an appearance of a messiah but more a realization that work does not make me happy, and that work should make me happy. So what is a man to do?

Perhaps change is in order. I love lists so let’s make one

  1. figure out what type of work would make me happy
  2. learn to accomplish said work
  3. find gainful employment in this work

Three steps simple right? Well simple yes but time consuming…. some people spend years on step one. What is it that will make you happy? Once you figure this out than you can figure out what type of work you should be employed in.

Knowing yourself is a huge step and one that not everyone accomplishes. You are a pretty cool and interesting person. I encourage you today to get to know yourself.
