My musings on ‘Yes, I Stand by My Words, “Happiness Equals Love—Full Stop”’

Just read George’s Yes, I Stand by My Words, “Happiness Equals Love—Full Stop”. Agreed! I’ve always found myself being most Happy with my loved ones. Looking at the past International Happiness Day actions, I’ve realised many of the actions are with the people we love.

What does Happiness and love got to do with each other?  The interesting measures of cohesive home-life, overall soundness, coping style and object relations were all strongly related.  The winners in life were reportedly having the warmest childhoods, best overall soundness, the most mature coping styles and the best object relationships, consequently leading to more fulfilling lives – the good life.  This translates into higher incomes, higher occupational prestige, longevity, better health, and good relationships, among other things.

Indeed,

Love conquers all things; let us too surrender to Love. – Virgil

Words of wisdom: Great moments and celebrations

Life is full of great moments and joyful celebrations. Only if you choose to. – Yip Pei Shan

I love looking at the good things in my life.  There are definitely some, if not a lot of nasty stuff that happens, but I choose to let them go.  Only by letting them go past me, or through me, can I experience the great moments that life has to offer.

Treasure each lovely moment, and celebrate!

Words of wisdom: How wealthy are you?

What is wealthiness? Shan’s perspective on wealth in the new year

The real measure of your wealth is how much you would be worth if you lost all your money. – Unknown

This is indeed food for thought.  At this special point in time with the old year moving on and the new year moving in, it is an ideal time for self reflection and setting new goals for the new year.   In our digi-consumer society, money may have become one of the yardsticks to judge who we really are.

I like the implications behind this quote.  How much are you worth in terms besides money?  What sort of terms are you worth in?  How wealthy are you?

Money may be an important commodity, however, it is not the end-all.  Wealth comprises not only money, but also happiness.  What is happiness to you?  Love?  Recognition?  Doing the things you love?  Looking good?  Fulfillment?  Fame?   Courage?  Confidence?  How wealthy are you, really?

Wishing you a Shanshiney New Year, and every happiness!
