Happiness

"We hold these truths to be self-evident, that all men are created equal, that they are endowed by their Creator with certain unalienable Rights, that among these are Life, Liberty, and the pursuit of Happiness."

Most Americans are familiar with the line from the Declaration of Independence, but how often do we take full advantage of those 'certain unalienable rights?' More specifically, the pursuit of Happiness.

You have the right to look for happiness. So...are you? Are you happy?

Author Willa Cather once wrote that "Happiness [is] to be dissolved into something completely great." I agree, and I urge you to find what makes you happy. What great thing - whether that be a place, a career, a hobby or an interest - makes you happy?
